I worked in events and marketing which I loved for its creativity and buzz but the long hours, pressure and expectation that I would promote brands I didn’t believe in told me it wasn’t for me. I was reaching burnout when I decided to follow a quiet but persistent instinct I’d had for years – I retrained as a psychotherapist.
In 2008 I qualified with a Masters in Gestalt Psychotherapy and I am UKCP Accredited. I maintain a busy private practice seeing individuals and couples. Additionally I deliver talks and training and write mental health articles. I never stop learning and continue to be moved and inspired by my clients.
Now, in the throes of midlife I work with other midlife women, sharing what I have learned both personally and professionally so that I can help others to find their own unique meaning and purpose, embrace who they are and live lives that offer greater fulfillment.
