Founder of Emotional nourishment
I have worked with individuals and groups since 2014 to improve their lives, by helping them understanding more about who they are and what helps them find nourishment. I understand how difficult it can be to ask for help and how difficult it can be to overcoming pain and suffering.
I started my career in engineering, working in operations, installing equipment etc, I then moved into project management. But there was always something niggling me that this wasn’t the right place for me, this lead to anxiety, depression and suicidal thoughts, all of which have impacted on my career, relationships and feelings about myself.
Because of this I have dedicated myself to understanding what impacts our wellbeing. This has taken me on a journey looking into aspects of food and mood, physical movement, mediation, environments and relationships.
This has become the core of the what I do.
Looking at multiple aspects of your life and the ideas or behaviours you have, helping you grow and develop, we are never set at one point and we can always shift in new ways. Therapy offers you the chance to grow in the ways you may not have thought possible.
Group development and facilitation – Working on Turning the Spotlight, focused on helping individuals and couples understand their behaviours, emotions and communication styles, building stronger relationships and awareness of how their actions can impact themselves and their families.
I was privilaged to volunteer as Lead Trainner, training new volunteers to become Samaritans. As a Listerner, listening to people needing support during hard times in their lives including being actively suicidal, hearing voices, workplace stress, intrusive thoughts, anxiety and depression.
Working with people that are overceoming their addications to drugs or alcohol.
This also included working past time in prison and helping them manage past trauma such as physical, sexual or verbal abuse.
