My background is in support and care and education – before I got into teaching Special Needs, I worked for many years with adults who have learning difficulties. I have a strong, longstanding interest in mental health (as opposed to mental illness).
I am particularly interested in working with issues around identity such as
and change processes like
- Goal setting
- Decision making
My approach to coaching is eclectic and carefully chosen – it includes elements of NLP, inner child work, mindfulness, CBT, and positive psychology.
I believe that every single one of us has value – no matter what.
One of my favourite tools is art journaling, which combines colourful mark making with the written word to create a unique, personal, and emotionally relevant art object.
