Experience

For the past four years I have been counselling drug users of all ages and promotes drug education at all times. I have also worked within Asian communities, is sensitive to cultural, and race issues.

I am also an experienced outreach worker and has developed groups of young adolescents with behavioural and drug issues, working with them weekly to educate and assist them with the kind of issues young people encounter today ie; drugs, bullying, racism, abuse, and finding employment.

Confidentiality

I offer a safe, secure, and confidential environment in which my clients can explore their issues, work through their difficulties, come to terms with the past, live comfortably in the present, and make their own decisions about their future.

Breaking of confidentiality will only be breached in exceptional circumstances where as a counsellor; there are good grounds to believe that the client is at serious risk of causing harm to him/herself or others, or that children are at serious risk.

Good Working Practices

I have full Professional liability insurance. I also attend regular ongoing supervision.
