I have sourced therapy at different times in my life and have found that although it can be difficult to find someone you feel really “gets you,” when you do, the experience stays with you and can be lifechanging.
I began my journey to become a therapist, when I felt unsupported and alone after a negative experience at work. I was offered a short series of sessions and through working with my therapist felt the way forward for me included a change of career. Setting out on this new path at the age of 50 was daunting, but something inside me knew it was the only way forward.
I am convinced that my life experiences have enhanced rather than hindered my journey to becoming a therapist and I am energised when working with people who are brave enough to share their deepest fears and wants.
