Counselling and therapy can be a powerful journey.
I have 15 years' experience as a therapist. I offer a safe, quiet space to support you to heal through self-love to remind you to love and care for yourself and to embrace your worthiness and find your inner peace.
My therapy journey started 18 years ago when I lost my Grandad, this was my first experience of losing someone who was very dear to me. My Grandad impacted my life in so many amazing ways, he was an inspiring male role model in my life and one that continues to touch my life to this day.
The impact of losing my Grandad was one that took me on an emotional roller coaster of a ride, a loss that I was not emotionally prepared for. My Grandad's passing took me to bereavement therapy. My therapy experience was a positive one, but unexpectedly it also opened up a whole lot of childhood and teenage negative life experiences and unresolved emotions that had been locked away for some time linked to my dad (a figure that left the family home when I was 6 and was never really involved in mine or my brothers life in any positive way and is also know longer with us!) an unhealty physical and emotional abusive relationship and some other negative life experiences. Being brought up in a single parent family by my amazing mum has stood me in good sted! Not knowing later in life I would experience and have to navigate too being a single mum!! Going deeper and healing from my younger days has been a journey for me, having to go to emotional places and experiences I would rather not, but also opening myself up to the process of therapy and counselling has most definetely had a positive impact in my counselling profession. Having an insight into the process of therapy, the tough feelings, blocks and fear that can be connected to reaching out for support and going through the journey to come out the other end!
Through fate I suppose I came away from this grief support being led to signing up for a counselling skills course, which then led me to continue my therapy training and yes, 18 years later, here I am still on my therapy journey and still supporting adults and young people to sit along side them, to support them through hurt and trauma, to give hope and enable healing.
