About Penny

Being motivated by a desire to help others, I started my professional life by studying law at Cardiff University and qualified as a solicitor, and in legal practice I represented clients caught up in the criminal justice system, moving on to working as an employment lawyer. However I discovered that a career in law was not for me later, I studied at Regent's College London where I was awarded a Masters Degree in Psychotherapy & Counselling and a Post Graduate Diplomas In Psychotherapy and Counselling.

Whilst in training as a psychotherapist, I gained experience in a variety of settings, including an NHS Hospital where I worked as an Honorary Psychotherapist, community counselling services, and a university counselling service.

Currently, I work part-time as a Workplace Mediator helping individuals deal with their workplace conflicts and stresses but I keep my two professions completely separate.

My formal qualifications are:

Advanced Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy (Regent's University)
MA Psychotherapy & Counselling (City)
LLb (Hons)
Accredited Mediator (Regent's University)

I am a Member of UKCP (United Kingdom for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and as such, I am bound by the Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy and subject to the Professional Conduct Procedure currently in force.
