Why I became a therapist
I love working with children and find they have a very creative approach to problem solving. I chose to become a because helping people as children enables them to overcome challenges before, they reach adulthood.
My interests outside of work
I love art and enjoy painting. I like walking in the country-side and we have a wildlife garden. I love wild swimming and anything to do with the sea. I practice Mindfulness and find this a good way to relax and fully experience all that life has to offer.
