I am 50 something and became a qualified counsellor and supervisor later in my life after joining Cruse Bereavement Care as a Bereavement Volunteer and then going on a journey to build my skills to benefit me and my clients, a journey that hasn't stopped!

I have a strong desire to "make a difference" and I am here to assist my clients and supervisees using a variety of therapeutic methods.
