Education and training
I began my counsellor training at York college, a short introductory course to see if counselling was the right path for me. Following this I completed my Certificate in Counselling Skills.
I then proceeded to complete my Masters degree in counselling at York St John university which qualified me as a counsellor at level 7 (many therapists train to level 4 to qualify). The final year of this was spent researching pre-trial therapy and the impact on trainee counsellors who provide it.
