About me


My past experience is in Human Resources and I have worked in a variety of organisations. During a career of over 20 years I was involved with people at work and often provided informal counselling. I felt particularly drawn to those people who were experiencing challenges in their life that were affecting their work. I took early retirement in 2011 and then undertook a Counselling Skills course and a post-graduate Diploma in Counselling at Strathclyde University, which was a total of three years of study.
