Hi there and welcome.
I began my career in working with people after completing my Nursing qualification. I worked as a General Nurse in Respiratory/Infectious Diseases before moving into Neonatal Intensive Care and after 12 months there, I went on to do my qualification in Midwifery. I worked in all areas of Midwifery - Antenatally, Birth, Postnatal and Special Care Nursery and I went from being a junior to a senior Midwife and spent 25 years working in this amazing field.
However, I saw a gap in this service.
We were missing one of the most crucial areas in caring for these women and that was in the mental health field.
So back to University I went...…I wanted to try and bridge that gap so I completed my Counselling degree and moved into the mental health field. I am now a Credentialed Mental Health Nurse.
I have been working with women for the past 7 years now in Perinatal Mental Health and I have gone on to do a lot of trainings to specialize in working within this field as well as working with trauma. This provides flexibility where we can integrate models to make something that works well for you. I am a big believer in a "one size does not fit all" approach, so your therapy is tailored to suit you and in consultation WITH you. Sessions are really shaped around what you need to be able to resume your life in a way that you feel is best for you. This can be either short term work or long term, depending on what you want to work through.
So within this space, I aim to create a place that feels calm, inviting, no judgement and safe to be able to talk about and work through your thoughts and feelings, to help you find yourself again and to reconnect back into you.
