What do you enjoy about your work?
As a Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT) therapist and counsellor, I am passionate about mental health and helping others live happier and healthier lives. It's rewarding to play a part in a client's journey and empower them to recover from debilitating conditions. I hold a strong belief in the individual potential for change, and I appreciate working in a job where I can help others create long lasting change.
Why do you think therapy is important?
Clients can sometimes struggle by themselves before making the brave decision to enter into therapy. The therapeutic relationship can provide a vehicle for change by offering a safe and confidential space to talk about life's challenges and difficulties. This can be an empowering and validating experience.
What is your favorite self help book?
There have been very many favorite self help books which I have read over the past 25 years since working within this industry. However, I went on holiday in April this year and started to read 'The Power of Now' by Eckhart Tolle. The book is about the importance of living in the present moment. It has real life stories about how his teachings helped many people overcome debilitating conditions like anxiety and depression by harnessing the power of now.
What is your favorite quote and who from?
"The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, worry about the future, or anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly" by BUDDHA
What are your own wellbeing habits?
I exercise several times a week. I enjoy running and aerobics as it gives me a mental boost, loads of energy, and feelings of vitality. There are a lot of feel good chemicals naturally released as a result of regular exercise. I also try and make time for friends and family, plus I also ensure I am creating a work / life balance.
