I’ve always been broadly interested in problem solving. I first became interested in coaching back in 2001. A few years later this led to the PGDip in Career Management and Counselling at Birkbeck.
Since then I’ve worked with hundreds of individuals to develop more fulfilling work lives. I coached a large number of people following redundancy. This experience made me aware that apart from the practical aspects of losing a job, people often struggled more with the loss of status, income and even identity. In some cases job loss triggered strong memories of other, unresolved losses.
I became more curious about the counselling aspects of my role, which led to the Masters in Counselling and Psychotherapy at UEL. The course is accredited by the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). As a BACP registered member I abide by their code of conduct regarding ethics and professional practice.
In a counselling capacity, I work with a range of personal issues including high anxiety, debilitating depression and many forms of loss, from the death of a parent to the loss of health.
