About me

M.A., B.A., Cert.Ed., C.H.P., Cert.Coun., T.A.(101), MBACP Senior Accred

Early in my career, I knew that I wanted to become a counsellor.

I began to realise that we all have choices in our lives. Most of us have been given a voice to speak up for our needs but, unfortunately, there are times when we don't listen to our voice and find ourselves in a place that is uncomfortable.

We know that we need to move from that place but don't know how. Often, that is the time when we need another person to speak with.
Counselling offers a safe space to share and talk about anything which is troubling. The safe, private and confidential space is important for a person to listen to him/herself and be listened to by a professional. Only the client knows what hurts and what is going to make it better.

In total, I have worked as a counsellor for thirty three years. I would choose no other vocation.
