Hello and welcome! For me, finding the right therapist for you, should be your most important step when engaging in the therapeutic process. With that in mind, here’s a little insight to my journey as a therapist.
I qualified as a therapist in 2007 with a degree in Person Centred Counselling with Middlesex University. A very proud day in my life with my husband and daughter there to witness the occasion. Unfortunately only 2 guests were allowed so my son went off to school that day with his tail between his legs. As a surprise, I had put a Nutella sandwich in his pack lunch which did of course get me another warning letter from the school about healthy packed lunches, but it was worth it.
I was very fortunate to be able to develop my skills whilst working in several counselling organisations. I worked at Brent Bereavement during the 7/7 bombings in London and we were one of the agencies tasked with supporting bereaved families. During my time at the Place2be and the Wish Centre, I worked in schools supporting children and young people with an array of difficulties including ADHD, anxiety, overwhelm, depression, self-harm, eating disorders, and suicide. To this day, I still work in schools and colleges as I know the difference it can make first hand to support a young person. Some of my ending sessions even brought a tear to my eye to see how much they had blossomed, even after just a few months of support.
For 10 years I ran a charity supporting children, young people and adults who had experienced Domestic Abuse. In an attempt to break the cycle of abuse and keep families together, we also worked with the perpetrators.
My passion is to support people to live their best lives, help them heal from emotional injury and be free of the shackles that hold them back. I work to break them out of their conditioning and limiting beliefs and to live the life they dream of.
I believe we all go through times when we need support from outside our normal network. I feel saddened that many see this as a sign of weakness. In my eyes, it actually takes great strength to ask for help. I urge you to ask for what you need, get what you deserve to start living your best life. Don’t let life slip by, take a hold and do something for you!
“You only get one shot in your life, and you might as well push yourself and try things.”
My wish for you is that you are able to step out of your comfort zone and ask for the support you need, as and when you need it. I did and it changed my life!
