My early career encompassed working as a PA for Directors in IT, Fashion and the music industry. Followed by working independently for 10yrs as editor & PR manager for a small music company (Soul Trade & Reggae Trade Magazine).
I felt I’d arrived when I met an unknown called “BEYONCE” starting out on her mega-career with DESTINY’s CHILD, during an assignment for Choice FM Radio.
Despite the glitz and the glamour I was stuck in an emotional rut due to a failing personal relationship. Mini-bouts of depression & anxiety took their toll on my physical and emotional health, and signalled that things had to change.
So …I got ACTIVE & stayed ACTIVE, realising that physical health is worthless if you can’t even think straight! Somehow my life did a 360degree turnaround, once I got turned on and stuck into the Aladdin’s cave of self-help books, and life-coaching & counselling courses.
CBT COUNSELLOR / person centred therapist
To date I’ve worked as a COUNSELLOR with young school children (Place To Be), and with teens & mature adults (Amersham & Wycombe College), where I have been a GROUP FACILITATOR on bespoke Well-Being talks.
I currently run a PRIVATE PRACTICE in High Wycombe, using CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy), Counselling and Life Coaching techniques – using a variety of “Pick-me-up” sessions or longer in-depth sessions where needed. Being a Wellness Activator encourages me to speak to communities, driving home the message that looking after your emotional health is the ultimate in “self care” and “self-love”.
There’s no health without mental wealth, and Talking Therapies at their best to give you a second chance at life and to get things off your chest. STUFF HAPPENS! But I strongly believe there’s always a solution if you find the right professional support.
