After a long career working as a secondary School Teacher, where my classroom very often became a counselling room, I knew that a career in counselling was a natural progression. I embarked on a Counselling & Psychotherapy degree with PCI Dublin, graduating with B.Sc.(Hons) degree from Middlesex University. During my studies I completed my 100 hours of voluntary work and continue to meet with my supervisor to discuss my professional development.
I worked in D.A.W.N. (Drogheda Area Women’s Network) as a Counsellor & Psychotherapist, helping women, men, young adults & children overcome a range of difficulties including; grief, loss, addiction, anxiety & depression. I am also a coordinator with Rainbows helping children overcome grief, loss and change.
