About my work in Dorchester
I’ve always known what I wanted and gone for it! I held a managerial position in business from the age of 16 and at 22 I started my own business.
I ran a successful business for 35 years. During that time I studied psychotherapy (5 years) and related subjects in my free time. Once qualified as a psychotherapist I set up a practice in 1994 which I ran in parallel with my main business. In 2004 I sold the first business to concentrate on developing my Psychotherapy practice. I have been working as a psychotherapist ever since.
I am fully trained and qualified in EMDR, stress management and business coaching which provides me with the skills to train others to manage their stress. My years of experience in coaching and training qualify me to pass on the presentation skills I have acquired to help other people improve theirs.
