My Approach: To me, all humans have the potential to experience personal peace despite the cards they may have been dealt at birth and/or through their child and adulthood.
I have an integrated person-centred perspective because I have a ‘one size does not fit all’ perspective from working with a wide diversity of people and my own life story, I searched for and found wisdom in many different vessels. My life-long interest is in helping people to discover their own wisdom and in aiding them to apply their personal insights and self-knowledge to lead a more fulfilled life.
Where it all started: I took up photography, initially thinking it would take me around the world but in fact it brought the world to me. Eventually I applied my practical and creative skills to became a community artist and I learnt to teach, using photography to help people who were marginalised from the mainstream and young people who struggled to fit into school. Then I became a youth worker with a substance misuse/ hidden harm specialism. Becoming a counsellor with aims to work cross-culturally was the natural step on for me to take.
