My Story

Like many people, I had a difficult start in life which caused me to have low self-esteem and to suffer from chronic anxiety. 

And because my confidence was low I made poor choices in relationships and had some traumatic experiences.

I just kept repeating the same unhelpful patterns because I was living my life based on the limiting beliefs that I’d picked up in my childhood.

But even though life seemed a struggle I always sensed that there was more. Some deeper part of me was nudging me towards seeking a happier experience. I just knew that we all deserve to be happy and secure. 

By my twenties, I was a single parent, with a gorgeous son, but with no real prospects for a career. 

Out of pure interest though I decided to take a night class in psychology. 

And I loved it!

The teacher said to me:

'You know you're really good at this. Have you ever thought about getting a degree?'

That lady literally changed my life.

With that one comment.

In that one single moment in time.

So I took her great advice and I completed a degree in Applied Psychology at one of the top universities in the UK - the University of Sussex

In time I went on to take several post-graduate qualifications and trained in a number of fantastic therapeutic modalities to help my clients.

I also gained a great deal of experience through counselling for a number of charities and organisations.

It was the beginning of my journey to becoming a therapist - and 27 years later I managed to track that teacher down and thank her. 

It was the BEST feeling! 

It's so special isn't it, how someone can say just one thing and change another person’s entire future.

Thank you for taking the time to read through my story.

I’m wondering if my challenges resonate for you too?

I've been there, I know what it feels like, and I know it can change for the better.
