I am trained to work with clients who have experienced Religious or Spiritual Abuse or related traumatic experiences within high-demand groups, cults or one-to-one relationships. I completed an M.A. in Relational Counselling and Psychotherapy in 2017 and have subsequently finished a doctorate at the Metanoia Institute/Middlesex University, the title of my doctoral thesis being ‘Both sides of the coin: Counsellors’ stories of the influence of a fundamentalist religious upbringing on mental health and wellbeing in adulthood’. 

I also have a Certificate in  Post-Cult Counselling (C-PCC) having undergone training on this specialist topic with Dr Gillie Jenkinson, of Hope Valley Counselling. Additionally, I frequently work with clients who wish to integrate Spirituality or Faith matters into their therapeutic work although I also work with people of other or no faiths so there is absolutely no obligation for this to happen.
