What do you enjoy about your work?
After my own experience of counselling many years ago and seeing how helpful it was, I wanted to be able to offer this help to other people. The work is deep, meaningful and I enjoy working with clients and seeing them go on to lead happier lives. Why do you think therapy is important?
Therapy is a bit like going to the gym for your mind. It helps make sense of what sometimes doesn’t make sense, so that you can learn to move forward from whatever you might be struggling with.
What is your favourite self help book and why?
Anything written by Carl Rogers, who founded person centred therapy – he wrote beautifully and created an approach to therapy that is gentle, empowering and ultimately helpful for clients.
Favourite quote and who is it from?
“The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.” Carl Rogers.
What are your own wellbeing habits?
Writing has always helped me to make sense of what’s going on inside my head - now I use writing therapy for myself and clients, as it can be so powerful. This might be through techniques to work through an issue or simply writing in a journal.
I live by the sea and love walking on the beach, seeing friends, and spending time with my family.
