As you can see from the above logo above, I am an Accredited member, and I am also
an approved Supervisor with the National Counselling Society.
Over the past 5 years I have been following the work of Spiritual Teacher Zahir Khan
and became one of his students, during this time, I have worked with him to continually raise my own self-awareness using direct experience and self-enquiry.
I hold a current DBS Certificate and I continue to expand, open and raise my own
awareness via CDP (continued professional development)
I continually look to see how I might improve my service, if you have any questions or suggestions then please do get in touch.
