Offering Therapeutic Counselling from 2020








Last week I presented/handed in the third set of assignments of six large Units in support of my Level 5 training to become an accredited therapist.


I am already a practicing volunteer therapist and member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists, building hours towards the 100 that I need to gain my full qualification.


The journey of discovery I am undertaking is life changing, in so many ways, giving me an even clearer understanding of

myself than I have to date achieved. Despite already feeling that I have made significant progress in this area before I made this choice to train to help others.


I hope to bring Therapy services to Look After Yourself LN5 from some time in 2020, which will perfectly complement the fitness and Pilates I already offer. I have a truly holistic approach to self, and feel that all aspects must be considered including nutrition and sleep.


I want to help put in the past the days of Therapy being seen as a crisis intervention option only. Therapy should be accessed before crisis, for maintenance of health and well being. Modern life carries more pressures than ever and a non-judgemental space, where you can freely explore your own experiences (be they now, recent or long past) and reflect with clarity in an empathic environment is vital to maintaining a good sense of who you are.


Even in the short time (16 hours thus far) that I have worked as a therapist to date, I cannot begin to describe how satisfying and rewarding it is, nor how much benefit my clients can begin to access through airing and exploring their own thought processes freely.
