My counselling is underpinned with with qualifications in Health & Social Care, Children & Young People, Gangs and Youth Violence, Anger Management, Criminal Psychology and a Bsc in Adult Mental Health Nursing.
I am also a qualified Adult & Youth Mental Health First Aid England trainer and Associate Trainer, as well as a Therapist.
We aim to steer the preventative flagship rather than just dealing with the aftermath of trauma and distress by providing affordable therapeutic services. Working towards a Better Well-Being and ‘Better Outcomes.’
I’m a member of the BACP Accredited professional register and also belong to the Accredited register for The Foundation for Infant Loss, as well as being a Licensed holder for The Outcomes© Star Mentoring support tool by Triangle.
My journey with Mental Health Started many years ago when I was 12 years old and my family was impacted by knife crime, the experience shaped my pathway in the use of and provision of supportive services.
Later on in life on 07th September 2003 we lost a close family friend to a death in Police Custody. Michael Lloyd Powell was a father, a sibling and all those things young men are in our community. This was the catalyst for my work in supporting families in relation to their EC Human Rights in particular, Article 2 ‘The right to Life’ and has led to me collaborating with West Midlands Police on advisory panels in relation to Mental Health, and I have also provided Stop & Search workshops on behalf of the Police & Crime Commissioner, implementing the Home Office’s ‘Best Use of Stop & Search Scheme’ sitting on the affiliated Scrutiny panel to ensure the correct legal implementation of the power.
My experience working with Mental Health has been self-employed practice since qualifying in 2015, originally providing Counselling & Advocacy around Mental Health, we still from time to time offer support in that capacity when we come across community members that really need the support. I have also worked for organisations such as The Priory Group supporting women in a rehabilitation and recovery service with complex mental health needs. Also Springfield MIND, a national Mental Health charity providing supportive services out of GP Surgeries, delivering pathways for Stress, depression, Grief & Loss, Managing Anger, self-esteem, Anxiety & Panic Attacks and more. I am also an active Childline volunteer working as a primary contact for children calling in a crisis, on their phone and chat platform.
I will always consider ‘individual circumstances‘ and apply discretion to fees where appropriate to enable a more autonomous based well-being and support.
I hope that if our paths do cross that I can help to support you on your journey wherever it takes you.
