Brought up in a small Lancashire town I couldn't wait to head for the big city of London when I was eighteen.
I had an ambition to train as an actress which I eventually did after working as a nanny.
After various jobs I became dissillusioned with the profession and decided to train as an aromatherapist and later as a 'natural healer' (similar to Reiki).
This brought me into contact with a lot people on a very personal level.Often there were deep emotional issues they needed help with but at the time I was not qualified to do so.
During this time I had a son and later became very ill.I had a lot of soul searching to do.But this is where I found my "inner strength."
Once I became well again, I wanted to make a difference to other people's lives. I had been given a second chance to live and so when my son was old enough I decided to train to become a counsellor.
First with Gloucestershire Counselling Services and later with the Foundation for Emotional Therapeutic Counselling.
I have always believed in the Mind , Body and Spirit connection, as an American Indian once said it should be the Spirit first not the others after.And he was right, because if the soul or spirit of the peron is in a good place then the rest will follow.
