Affiliate Counsellor for Health Assured and Staywell Occupational Health Ltd (Employee Assistance Programmes)

I feel honoured to have been selected as an Affiliate Counsellor for one of the leading EAP providers in the country, Health Assured, as well as Staywell Occupational Health Ltd, from which I receive referrals for clients seeking counselling.  This work is short-term and solution-focussed therapy, where clients receive, usually up to six sessions, funded by their employer.  

 

I also worked as a counsellor at a Women's centre in Bedfordshire, where I worked with women with a wide range of issues, including physical, emotional, mental and sexual abuse, suicidal thoughts, bereavement, childhood trauma, depression, self-harm, relationship issues etc.

 

I also have over 15 years experience in the weight-loss industry and understand that weight issues go far beyond simply what people eat. I realise that there are deep, often unspoken, reasons why people have difficulty with weight and body image.
