I have been running my private practice since 2011 and spend my time learning new skills in order to offer new therapies and a range of options for clients to improve their Health and Well-being.
Life for me like many hasn't always gone to plan, but this today helps me to realise that even you feel at your most stuck or lowest point, that with some help there is always a way to move forward - even if you need to take a slight step sideways first.
I became firstly a Counsellor slightly by accident, but it was the best decision I ever made in my life - to pursue something I felt really happy doing and from that point on many doors have opened up to be able to introduce Hypnotherapy, Reiki and other therapies that help individuals treat both body and soul.
