Why I Became a Therapist
After university, I worked with leading experts in the area of psychology, health and education research. It was very busy, interesting and often stressful. After I had my children I wanted to work in a way that suited family life better. I was keen to use my psychology and health knowledge and to take a more practical role, so I retrained. I really enjoy what I do now, meeting clients and helping them to make positive changes to their lives.
