Born in Scotland, living in South Yorkshire I began my journey into counselling by training to be a family support worker with Hallam Caring Services, a catholic based charity of the diocese of Hallam.
Now working as an integrative counsellor and physiotherapist for Hallam diocese, still working with family’s but also counselling on a daily basis across the diocese. Counselling pupils & Staff in primary & secondary schools, parishioners, & Sheffield university student in the catholic chaplaincy.
I begin in a person-centred way then integrate a bespoke way of working with my clients based on the issues they bring.
Apart from my level 6 physiotherapy qualification I also have diplomas in mindfulness & CBT. Other training, I have undertaken that enhances the way I work are: Youth Mindfulness, Mindfulness SOMA programme, Flowers 125, Massage in School programme, JUSTB Child Grief, Adult Mental Health First Aid (AMHFA) and Relationships for Life (Parenting). I am a registered Director for Rainbows SY and a Registered Trainer for Family Caring Trust. I also hold the City & Guilds Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector (PTLLS).
What is integrative Physiotherapy:
A progressive form of psychotherapy that combines different therapeutic tools and approaches to fit the needs of the individual client. As a Integrative therapist I take the view that there is no single approach that can treat each client in all situations.
An integrative approach is a type of therapy in which the affective, behavioural, cognitive, physical, social, and spiritual aspects of an individual are used in their treatment.
