‘Therapist’ or ‘counsellor’ might be how you see me. However, that’s not all I am. I have been the client. This means I know how scary it can be to open up to someone new. Therefore, I make sure my clients are as comfortable as possible. My experience taught me that it can be hard to speak about the challenges in our lives.
I love learning about another persons life experiences and perceptions. I believe we create the world we need using our thoughts. For example, by the stories we choose to tell. Also in the way we tell them.
I became fascinated when I learnt our mind has the greatest impact on us. I am a self-reflective person and I look for wisdom wherever I can. Some of this you can read on my blog.
Non – Therapist life
Outside of my therapist job, I am a writer, photographer and video editor. These skills allow me to capture and reflect on the world around us. I feel future generations deserve to see our present preserved accurately. Most importantly, through the values and culture that we wish to share with future generations.
I find that this reflection on society can offer us insight. Both into mental illness and the increase in mental health difficulties. Therefore, I use this to help broaden my horizons. It gives me a better understanding of the world. As a result, I develop a better understanding of clients when I meet them in a therapeutic setting.
