- My Story
I began my counsellor training after an accident at work meant I could not return to my previous profession. I was fortunate enough to be able to invest time in myself, taking the opportunity to evaluate my life skills and passions I went back to university and become a qualified Counsellor by gaining a Foundation Degree in Counselling Skills and Studies and a BSc (Hon) Degree in Counselling and Therapeutic Studies.
This helped me understand and learn how to facilitate a safe space for supporting many people in their lives, particularly in times of change or crisis. Throughout the course I gained the knowledge, experience and skills I needed to understand all aspects of counselling and therapeutic studies and their social and cultural contexts. Therapeutic communication is important in the healing process as counsellors need to be able to communicate effectively with their clients. I was also fortunate to be taught by practising therapists who are in the forefront of counselling today.
During my degree I undertook practical work experiences. This included the practical experience I have gained was through voluntary work with ‘Homestart ’ an organisation that offers a befriending service to parents with preschool child, who may be struggling with parenting and life skills. I continue to volunteer as a crisis support worker at Leeds Survivor Led Crisis Service )offering emotional and practical support, and facilitating counselling sessions either face to face or over the telephone service to callers and visitors in crisis with suicidal tendencies. I also have experience of working in a low-secure unit for women with serious mental health issues to which I offered therapeutic and emotional support
