I’m a qualified and registerd hypnotherapist, partner, ex-teacher and animal lover. I enjoy talking, films, Agatha Christie, Fleetwood Mac and meeting people from all walks of life but most of all, I am someone who loves helping and supporting people.
As a former teacher and mental health advocate I have learned that everyone has times in their lives when they feel stressed, anxious and scared and need help.
My life has not been without its pressures so I know how it can feel. I have worked and studied hard to Post Graduate level. I have dealt with unemployment, financial difficulties, exam stress, workload stess, working shifts, discrimination, moving across country and setting up my own business, but all of this just means I have learnt to cope well and build my resilience, a resilinece that I can share with you.
The first step is identifying and admitting that there is a problem, then seeking support.
Choosing the right person to speak to might seem challenging but sharing the problem is the only way to move forward and make that change.
When I suffered from stress and anxiety, I first had to make time in my busy schedule to go to the doctor. I was recognising the signs in myself of depression. This first step led to months of support and work until I realised that all I needed to do was slow down. Take a breath, acknowledge the pressure and take time for myself.
Now contacting someone like me can be easier through online connections and I will talk to you online or come to you.
