Having experienced bereavement, divorce, illness and job loss I felt lost and isolated, no matter how hard I tried I couldn’t gain any traction in my life. It felt as though I had no control or say, life was just happening to me. A close friend recommended that I try counselling. It allowed me to work through some very difficult times and uncover things I wasn't aware of, it allowed me to see things for what they really are and to make intuitive and congruent choices. This enabled me to make positive changes to my life and come to terms with the things I can’t change. It was a difficult and painful process but learning acceptance empowered me. I discovered I had a new found courage to want to move forward in my life.
I retrained and became a Person Centred Counsellor. my work has predominantly been based in a rehabilitation center and a charity for domestic violence. I also now have my own private practice. Throughout my own professional development I have embarked on several additional training qualifications including life coaching and clinical hypnotherapy, which I offer Integratively or as a stand alone service.
