BSc (Hons) Psych, Ad. Dip PsyC, Cert. Hyp CS,
After spending years working in the corporate world as a legal secretary I felt I had more to give and that I would like to do something more rewarding that would benefit others. I have always been interested in psychology and why people behave in the way they do, so I decided to embark on a part time degree course in psychology. Having been out of the academic environment for some years, going back to school was a bit of a shock to the system, but I loved it!
My main reason for pursuing the route of psychotherapeutic counselling was that I had seen several friends and family members get so much from the counselling environment and could see how it can change lives for the better. During my counselling training I was introduced to hypnotherapy and, after some initial trepidation, I discovered how fantastic it is and realised it is an excellent additional tool to really help people. So here I am!
