About the Speaker
I am a consultant, accredited psychodynamic therapist, coach and clinical supervisor. I have 20 years' experience in the field of counselling and specialise in working therapeutically with adults and young people who have suffered the many traumatic effects of abuse. This is comprised of childhood sexual abuse, rape, sexual assault and all forms of domestic abuse, which include intimate partner violence, psychological, sexual, financial and physical abuse.
My experience has been gained from working with clients from Women's Aid and the Moira Anderson Foundation. Prior to this, I also have 13 years' experience in the public sector, as an executive officer for the Benefits Agency. My experience included responsibility for benefit processing, benefit appeals and fraud, social fund grants and loans, linking to the Child Support Agency and responsibility for a £5 million budget.
