About me

I originally trained as a Veterinary Nurse and spent many years in clinical practice caring for animals. I then taught Veterinary Nursing for 23 years at a local college, working with students of all ages and helping them gain their professional qualification. This time working with students and visiting veterinary professionals in their workplaces, made me realise that all sorts of stress and worries interfere with a person’s happiness. Low self-esteem, depression, unhappiness, distress and under achievement can all result from holding in thoughts and feelings and ‘trying to be strong’ often has devastating effects. 

My own work stress and personal life experiences led me to seek professional help and the dramatic difference in how I felt, resulted in my decision to train and become a qualified counsellor.
