What do you enjoy about your work?
I enjoy working collaboratively with clients to help them meet their goals.
Why do you think therapy is important?
It is very easy to become caught up in viscous cycles and unable to see what may help. Therapy enables people to take a step back and take charge of their life, breaking the cycles that may have been occurring.
What is your favourite self help book and why?
My favourite self help book is 'The Art of Happiness' by Howard C. Cutler.
Favourite quote and who is it from?
"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit" - Aristotle.
What are your own wellbeing habits?
My morning routine involves some yoga sun salutations. I also make time for evening meditation, placing my legs against a well. Food and meal preparation is also important. Overall, continuing to learn how to practice self compassion is key.
