I started my working life as a laboratory technician at a university. I quite enjoyed the work although in many ways I wasn't satisfied with my life. My problem was I felt unable to do anything about it. I felt stuck.
Around that time I entered psychotherapy and continued for several years. It transformed my life in many ways.
I decided to train as a psychotherapist and completed the UKCP accredited Diploma in Transpersonal Counselling and Psychotherapy at the Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy Education (CCPE).
I practice Tibetan Buddhism and have integrated that into my own personal path. I have experience of a wide range of meditation and mindfulness techniques. I find spending time in nature very healing and balancing. Looking at flowers or noticing the beauty of the night sky helps me to feel more human and keeps me in touch with my soul. I love to meditate in the woods or by the sea shore.
My own experience of psychotherapy as a client helps me to be a therapist for others. It has also given me a real faith in my clients when they may not have that faith in themselves. I've been there myself.
I love helping my clients discover and make real the potential they have in themselves.
