My belief in there is always hope underpins my work; we can all become more confident and happier in life
My Counselling Journey
I was involved in the helping profession for over fourteen years; working directly with people and families in a variety of settings often facing crisis in life. Through these roles I met a wide range of people many of which had issues which caused them to become stuck in life, unable to move on. Wanting to do more to help them through times of emotional distress led me to train as a counsellor, a role which I continue to be passionate about. I have met amazing individuals and continue to be impressed by our personal resilience and inner strength.
