"There is no greater form of wealth than your peace of mind."
- Ralph Smart
My work background is retail therapy, I enjoyed interacting with new people and problem solving where necessary but always felt as if something was missing.
From a young age I've always wanted to help people and when the opportunity presented itself I trained for a number of years before qualifying as a Level 5 Degree Humanistic Counsellor, FdSc.
In October 2020 I received my accreditation from the BACP which means I have met their higher standards of competency and ethics.
Apart from eating cake, I enjoy spending time with friends and family.
I also have an interest in mindfulness and practice this regularly.
I have gained experience working with clients of all ages, with a variety of presenting problems: suicidal thoughts; self-harm; feeling low and self-confidence issues to name a few.
The best thing about what I do is that it doesn't feel like a job, it feels natural and something I'm meant to do.
I love meeting new people and hearing about their story, it is a truly rewarding 'job.'
