My journey in clinical practice began with the Jersey Addiction Group as a trainee counsellor and after attaining an Intermediate Certificate in Counselling Skills realised I needed to further my experience and qualifications in the U.K.
I trained and then was employed by Broadreach House Plymouth,a leading Residential Unit for Drug and Alcohol Dependency in the South West of England. During this time I passed their Diploma in Addiction Counselling and I also undertook specialised training in which I gained certificates in Motivational Interviewing ,Working with Self Harm,Eating Disorders,Training in Sexual Abuse and Trauma and Blood Borne Viruses.
My continual development has led to additional training with Clouds ‘Working With Families and Substance Misuse, and the Iron Mill Institute ,’Mentoring ,Coaching and Clinical Supervision.
