I began my working life in British Telecom, Cardiff more years ago than I care to remember.
I worked in many departments including Customer Service which gave me experience of listening to and helping people. I gave up work for a few years to raise a family and helped manage a local jewellery store for several years. During my time working in retail I realised that I enjoyed talking to and listening to people and putting them at ease. Customers often told me about their lives and said they felt better for talking to me. I like to think my empathy helped them feel better about themselves.
In 2014 I realised I needed help with problems I was having and decided to seek counselling. I found a very good counsellor who helped me through my difficulties and a year later I decided to retrain as a mental health counsellor. I qualified in December 2019 and began private practice in March 2021, delayed by two years due to Covid 19.
