I studied as a Home Economics teacher in 2008 and since then I have always been training in different areas and learning new skills. In 2013 I faced a very difficult and challenging personal trauma which oddly enough I am extrememly grateful for, because that life experience has lead me on an incredible journey of self-discovery and development. That experience introduced me to the wonderful Judith, Judith has been a key component in my journey, with Judith’s constant help, support, coaching and nourishing I have achieved things I didn’t believe where possible and now I use these skills in my own practice with my clients.
In 2016 I went back to study mental health and wellbeing coaching. Here I found my path, I loved every minute of the course and the training. I was then asked to do private coaching in my school with students as a guidance role which lead me to go back and complete a post graduate in guidance counselling and since then I have been working as a guidance counsellor within the school setting.
I teach students self -care and self-development, giving them tools to help cope with their fears and anxieties. Coaching them on how to become the best versions of themselves and to understand that in life we all experience some level of anxiety but when it becomes overwhelming and too much its ok to say you’re not ok and you need help.
From this I developed E.M.S Guidance, Empower, Motivate and Support Guidance. This is my own private practice which offers one to one wellbeing coaching, guidance counselling and career guidance.
I also facilitate wellbeing workshops for teens these workshops are very popular, so-much -so that parents wanted one for themselves! Therein the adult’s Minding My Mind wellbeing workshops were born. My workshops for teens and for parents include include Mediations, breathing techniques, self-care wellbeing tools, reflective practice, goal setting, restorative yoga, relaxation and an incredible tasty nutritious cookery demonstration.
