Registered Nurse, Dip Clinical Hypnotherapy, Dip Counselling
This is My Story
My role as a nurse began over 20 years ago, I realised working in a hospital ward wasn’t for me. There just wasn’t enough time to sit and talk to the patients, never any time to hear their story.
Working in a diabetes centre gave me a new set of skills and understanding of the needs of people with long term health conditions. I returned to the wards to give me more time with my own young babies, this time working with people with health conditions due to alcohol addiction. We were treating the symptoms of emotional pain, but not dealing with the underlying cause of such brutal self-sabotage.
Practice nursing in a GP clinic came next, a step closer to being able to have more meaningful supportive relationships with the people that came into the clinic to see me. Helping people understand their body and develop healthy habits is an integral role of practice nurses, but to be able to do this effectively I undertook a counselling diploma and this allowed me to follow my passion and bring all my experience to Moveon Counselling. Clinical hypnotherapy was the next amazing experience and another tool to make it easier for people to utilise their own inner strength so they can make changes to their habits and life quickly and effectively.
I continue to strive to develop understanding of how we can reshape our thinking habits, bring self-compassion and resilience to my own life and to the people who come to me through Moveon Counselling.
