I have had the privilege of working with a wide range of students and clients over the past 25 years on a one-to-one or group basis, in educational and more recently counselling settings.
In all my work, be it Counselling, Life Coaching, Careers Guidance and/or Teaching/Training my fundamental aim is to move my clients forward so that they can progress on to fulfilled and happy lives.
I gained great pleasure and satisfaction as some of my mature A-level Law students went on to achieve their Law degrees and likewise when my Career Guidance clients come to tell me they have gained a place at their chosen university or secured that much sought after job.
I was lucky enough to have a second chance at my education and filled with enthusiasm as a mature student I successfully completed a BA(Hons) degree in Social Sciences and Criminology, a Masters Degree in Education and a BSc(Hons) degree in Psychology. During this time my own children successfully embarked on, and completed, their own university degrees.
My Psychology degree inspired me to train and qualify as a Counsellor and Psychology remains my current and lasting passion.
Along with all my other work I now run a small successful Counselling Practice for individuals and couples. I am also fortunate enough to be able to work largely with COA (Cambridge Occupational Analysts) for my Careers Guidance work which I now carry out in independent schools across the South of England. Finally, I continue to train new Careers Guidance workers with the EAPDC (East Anglian Professional Development Centre).
