Having worked in Banking, Business and Finance for over twenty years, I started to become increasingly unfulfilled in my roles.
I knew I needed a change of career; however, I was very unsure of how I would engage with this. I decided to do some voluntary work alongside my job to see what else was out there. I was accepted to train for the NSPCC as a volunteer counsellor at Childline, a far cry from my corporate background! Whilst volunteering I knew I had found a vocation that fulfilled me as the person I am. I was hooked.
I then decided to embark on a degree course to heighten and deepen my knowledge on a subject I love. I am now passionate about supporting people to find fulfilment and empowerment in their own lives.
