My past employment history includes significant careers within the Armed Forces and Corporate IT Management both of which were high pressure jobs working within close knit teams. During these careers I became increasingly aware of the importance of every individual and how work and personal pressures as well as emotional and psychological issues can have a detrimental impact on our daily lives and ability to function. It was this and some key points in my own life that prompted me to work on my own emotional intelligence, gain a better understanding of psychology and ultimately to re-train for a fulfilling career as a counsellor.

In addition to my counselling work, I work for a charity on a full time basis as a young persons mentor and also volunteer with another young persons charity.
