Work Experience

Apart from providing counselling at the Adult Community Eating Disorders Service at Oakwood, I am a school counsellor at Place2Be where I use an integrative child-led model, incorporating play therapy, psychodynamic and child-centred therapy to support primary school children with a range of issues.

I previously worked at Rochdale and District Mind and Side by Side Counselling as a volunteer counsellor providing counselling sessions to clients presenting with a range of difficulties.

Furthermore, I have worked at Women’s Housing Action Group (WHAG) as a domestic abuse counsellor where I saw women who are homeless or who are at risk of homelessness, and women who have experienced domestic abuse, alcohol and substance misuse or abuse.

How I work

Person-centred counselling is the core foundation of my work – I provide a safe, non-judgemental, warm space. However, I also use different theories and approaches like CBT-E and Expressive Therapies to inform my practice and suit individual needs.

My interests include eating disorders, trauma, abuse, EMDR and CBT.
