Make or Break
fear vs faith
In 2004, having had enough of the grit working for a corporate company, I decided I wanted to be my own boss, and utilise my gifts in different ways. I just love to bring out the best in people. There is nothing more fulfilling and rewarding than that to me, so what was I going to do? Following departure from my 7 years job, I decided to return to study, and so enrolled on the Counselling and psychotherapy training at the local adult college and Ding Dong!
I qualified after 4 years of vigorous training, and within the recommended 3 years post qualification experience, I applied and obtained the BACP (British association for counselling and psychotherapy) registration and accreditation status that meet counsellor/psychotherapist competency and practice standards. I am Person-Centred and CBT trained within the Humanistic traditions which puts the client at the centre of the work and values the therapeutic relationship over theories and techniques, by honouring the autonomous right of every individual to be self governing. I do not give advise, pathologies or assign labels, generalise, or minimise any human experience, rather I meet everyone where they are with love, compassion and acceptance. With my professional help I empower my clients and allow them the space to figure out their own lives.
Over the years I furthered my training in the field of neuroscience, mind/body/spirit connection in alternative approaches such as PSYCH-K® subconscious belief change processes. I am also a strategic Intervention trained coach and completed my training under my teachers Tony Robbins and Chloe Madanes. I attended UPW, (Tony Robins Unleash the Power Within Virtual workshop held 3-6 June 2021), A 54hrs continuous immersive transformational mind, body, spirit personal development workshop, which helped me put down a 35 years smoking addiction over the 4 days, through mindset change alone. I haven't touched a cigarette ever since, neither had cravings or the desire to do so. Understanding the function of why I smoked and the psychology of human needs that I learned blew my mind, and enabled me to have my breakthrough. All it took was a 2 mm shift in my thinking to realise that although it might have taken years to get there, change actually happens in a moment. I teach the psychology of human needs in my coaching service.
Since my traditional training I have added massive value to myself and my work over the years in further training, lectures and workshops with some of the worlds best entrepreneurial influential scientific and spiritual minds on the planet, such as Dr. Joe Dispensa, Dr. Bruce Lipton, Tony Robbins, Dean Graziosi, Chloe Madanes, Mark and Magali Peysha. I am committed to updating my knowledge and add value to my services.
I have worked in various contexts — community, prison, hospice, private practices UK, and Geneva Switzerland. Since the pandemic hit I currently only work online. Facilitating an online practice enabled me to work with clients from all over the world — USA, Canada, India, Dubai, Pakistan, Thailand, Peru, Vietnam and in Europe to name some. I have worked with many human conditions, I have done over 10,000 hours of practice to date and still going. I can tell you from my personal and professional experience and observation, at the core of all primary human fears regardless of nationality and cultural influences, are the same two nagging questions. "Am I enough and will I be loved?" It would appear we ask these questions when we are disconnected from our own spiritual nature which holds different meaning for every individual. Do you identify yourself as a spiritual being having a human experience or a human being having a human experience, or are you sitting on the fence?
My intuition has been the guiding force my whole life and is very present in my work. I trust it profusely, and it helps me attune deeply empathically. I work to the BACP, EAC, and International Federation of Coaching (IFC) Codes of Ethics to ensure you receive a safe and quality service. I am spiritual by nature (not religious) which for me means; I am part of the source of life (God, Nature, Universe, Spirit, Higher Self, Music, etc - What ever you want to call it) and not separate from it. I welcome all walks of life to my practice with an intention to serve and contribute towards the greater healing of humanity. My roles as counsellor, psychotherapist, Coach are my passions. I believe is what I was born to be and I AM
