GET TO KNOW ME
It's been a long and arduous journey from a mother of one on benefits to a woman in charge of her own future.
It took me quite a number of years to realise that because I did not know myself, I did not know what I wanted, hence the reason why I was always running, from what, I could not tell you, but running nevertheless. My young adult years were filled with anger and resentment and sometimes I did not even know what for and why.
Eventually, after a very lenghty fight with myself (might I add), over a number of years, and an unfortunate event that happened quite a number of years ago, my back was up against the wall and I decided to seek support for what I was going through. It was one of the best things I ever did. With the help & gentle push from a fantastic counsellor I was able to become still, find myself and really understand my worth and value. She is definitely one of the inspirations behind me being the woman I am today.
So, after a number of years of study, I went on to qualify with a Professional Adv. Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling with a special interest in childhood trauma, trauma, domestic abuse and PTSD.
I work in an integrative way, drawing on various methods and techniques to meet the needs of my clients. My approach is flexible and dynamic.
I have been fortunate to be able to support a number of clients with an array of different subject matters, such as;
Fears & Phobias
Work related stress
