After an initial career within the NHS, I took some time out to raise a family. When I returned to work, I became a mentor, working with children and young people. I then decided to retrain as a counsellor, completing my counselling placement with West Mercia Rape and Sexual Abuse Support Centre and becoming employed as an Independent Sexual Violence Advocate. Within that post I gained a Post Graduate Certificate in Advocacy for Victims of Sexual Violence and continued to work for the charity as a counsellor and advocate until June 2023, leaving to enhance my private practice.

My professional journey has taken me on a path from working for a care provider, to working therapeutically with people. This process has allowed me to work in something I am passionate about, helping people to enhance their own health and wellbeing.
