When I was younger, I struggled in High School and my career options were severely limited by poor grades. For many years, I continued living a life that didn't make me happy, and I felt I could do nothing to help myself move on from this unacceptable set of circumstances.
Eventually, life as it was became unacceptable, I was intensely unhappy and I knew something had to change. So I had a choice to make. I could stay in the unhappy life I was living or I could take a risk on making it better, finding a life I would enjoy. I chose to take a risk and follow my own desires and not what I thought everyone else would want.
Through realising I had the power to control my life, I was able to change career, gain my Masters and become a counsellor who gets so much joy out of supporting others to make changes and overcome the roadblocks of life.
As a counsellor, I use my own life experiences to remind me that we all face difficult times in life and that it can feel like we are powerless and alone. We can help you make sense of what's going on and support you to find solutions and ways of coping that work for you.
