I have always been interested in counselling and when my daughter left for university I thought ‘right, this is my time to follow my passion’. I’ve done a range of jobs in the past including being a taxi driver. I am a people person so driving people around and chatting suited me well. Hearing people’s stories and different perspectives on things has always fascinated me.
I have worked with clients with a wide variety of issues including family problems, psychosis, bipolar, depression, eating disorders and stress.
I have a diploma in therapeutic counselling and I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. I attend regular training events, the most recent being training in trauma and attachment.
