I have a background in competitive swimming and that naturally led me to become a swimming teacher. I chose to work with children with physical disabilities and autism, as well as adults who had a swimming phobia. This kind of teaching involved a great deal of empathy and understanding, much like counselling.
As a result, I found myself doing much more than just teaching my students to swim. I realised I had an ability to help people transform their lives and I wanted to get first-rate counselling training in order to do that to the best of my ability.
I understand that when you come to counselling you want to know you are seeing someone who has a strong foundation. My qualifications are:
- BSc (First) In Humanistic Counselling, Metanoia Institute, London
- ASA Level 2 Swimming Coach
- MA (First) in History and English Hungary, University of Pecs
I am also an Accredited Member of the British Association Of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and a member of the Metanoia Institute, London. I adhere to the BACP Ethical Code and the Metanoia Code of Ethics.
