More about me
I worked as a manager in business for many years before deciding to retrain as a counsellor, and enjoyed this time leading teams of people and mentoring and developing them through their career. I found that short term counselling after a family bereavement was incredibly beneficial to me, and it sparked an interest in the work of counselling. I was often told by friends and colleagues that I was approachable, easy to talk to and felt that they could trust me. Following a discussion with a friend who was a counsellor, and after much reflection and investigation, I decided this was a the time for me to retrain in this rewarding and profession.
I had my own counselling/therapy as part of my training, so know how it feels to sit as a client. I learned much about myself, my emotions and relationships, and how my own past had impacted on the person I am today. It helped me to find the strength to be the person I had always wanted to be.
I have spent several years working with local counselling charities in and continue to do work for one today as well as running my independent practice. I love to be outside and am at my happiest when walking or spending time in my garden tending the flowers vegetables. I practice yoga and meditation, and appreciate the benefits both to myself and my clients. I feel privileged in my counselling role to support the curious and brave people who choose to work with me, on their journey to understand and to heal the wounds of their past.
