I run a private practice based in Braintree, Essex and also volunteer at a local hospice as a Bereavement Counsellor.
My passion for helping and supporting people came from working in Human Resources for many years. Having a natural compassion and empathy for people and being an approachable person to open up to, led me to being a go to person when people felt troubled. People would come to the department in tears and I wouldn't hesitate to make them a cuppa, book a private meeting room and listen to their problems.
Whatever their issue was, whether work related or personal, people knew they could talk to me in confidence and I would do my best to help. It felt so rewarding to me when they left feeling in a better place than when they'd arrived.
Eventually I felt drawn to follow a different path outside the corporate world, retrained and qualified as a Counsellor and Hypnotherapist and since then, have had the privilege of working with many clients who have successfully moved forward with their lives after therapy.
With my HR experience, I understand how work can negatively impact on a person's life and my coaching skills help clients deal with work related problems such as bullying, work related stress, managing people, having difficult conversations and even confidence with interview techniques.
