About Me

Hi, my name is Charli and I am the founder of Fortitude Counselling.


I began my counsellor training in 2010 at York St John University and qualified in 2016. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and adhere to their ethical framework for best practice.


I have been volunteering and working as a counsellor since September 2013 and seeing clients within my own private practice since March 2017. I have also taught counselling to mature students across the level two and level three certificates in counselling and the level four diploma in counselling at York College.


I achieved my MA in Counselling in 2019 and I am about to embark on my Doctor of Professional Studies in Counselling and Psychotherapy at the University of Chester.
