Hello, my name is Bernice and I am a Person-Centred Counsellor who is an accredited and registered member of the BACP.
In 2010, I attended the course ‘An Introduction to Counselling’. This followed on from training I received to be a telephone volunteer for a drugs helpline; I worked for Drugsline for two years where I took calls from people who took drugs as well as concerned relatives and friends.
I went on to successfully complete the Certificate in Counselling Skills and the Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling at the City Lit in Covent Garden.
In 2018, I attended a course to train in couples counselling with the Counselling Works in Milton Keynes; they specialise in Person-centred training.
I am currently working for a bereavement charity alongside my private practice.
Prior to this, I have worked with people who were alcohol dependent or in recovery and female survivors of domestic abuse.
The common thread for me in my private and professional life has been my love and interest in people. My natural way of being, together with my life’s experiences enables me to work with warmth, care and compassion.
