My Background

 

I spent over a decade in the corporate world working in sales, marketing and HR and during this time gained experience in organisational psychology, change management, leadership, coaching and executive coaching, training and facilitation. I had a very successful corporate career but after facing health issues, I chose to retrain as a counsellor in order to transfer my passion and skills towards helping individuals find happiness and success.

I embarked on a breadth and depth of reading, workshops and trainings that helped me build a much more conscious relationship with myself and a more healthy, happy and meaningful life. I developed a relationship with my thoughts, emotions and my physical health as well as explored and awakened my connection to my spiritual side. This was hugely life changing (you can read a little of this story in my book) and led me to deep inner work on myself, a whole new career as a counsellor and towards many different spiritual trainings which have transformed my life.

My experience includes working with adults of all ages and young adults through private practice, as a University Student Counsellor as well as previous managerial, training and coaching roles at all levels from graduate to executive level. I’ve an additional 25 years’ experience of training and facilitation of a wide variety of topics including psychological, corporate and spiritual programs.

My Practice

I believe wholeheartedly in working on myself first and practice what I preach – I meditate and practice self-reflection daily so that I am able to continue working on myself. This I believe enables me to accompany and support my clients at depth on both the highs and lows of their journey. Whilst, I have found an approach that works for me, I believe in the importance of helping others to find their own unique pathway in accordance with their own beliefs and values.
