How I Got Here
I thought I wanted to be a Chef. On the eve of entering catering school, a voice told me not to go.
After thinking about it, I ended up enrolling in a business and finance course one day before it was due to start.
I didn’t know it at the time, but that course would be the launchpad for how I went about my career, as it taught me to strategise, use logic, identify patterns, plan and trust my intuition.
After 4 years of studying business, my soul was crying out to do something more creative, so I went back to university to study media.
Once I graduated, the ‘plan’ was to work in theatre, which I did.
Three months in, though, it was clear that working in theatre wasn’t for me.
How do you know a job isn’t for you? You cry everyday at the thought of going to work, and when you do go, you constantly feel miserable - counting the seconds to when you can leave, go home, watch ‘Friends’, and let your mind and heart escape from an environment that sucks the soul out of you.
That’s how it was for me.
So, I quit.
I had no plan or idea on what I was going to do.
Counselling unintentionally found its way to me during this time, and four years later I qualified as a psychotherapist.
I knew from my time in theatre, I could never go ahead in my career without formulating a plan.
Luckily, being in the right place at the right time put me in proximity to three brilliant black businesswomen, who showed me how to use my business training to forge a new path for using my counselling skills.
I AM HERE TO PAY IT FORWARD AND BE THE RIGHT PERSON, AT THE RIGHT TIME FOR YOU.
For nearly 20 years now, I have set up or managed thriving counselling services for various charities, whilst having busy practices online, in Harley Street, Clapham and Vauxhall.
I have won awards for best ‘Business Start-Up’ and’ Innovative Marketing’, and been approached to lecture, be a TV Psychotherapist in the UK and overseas, and provide psychological support to those in the armed forces, police, missionaries and NGO's.
I now encourage and support couples and individuals to transform their relationships for the better through psychotherapy, and help women therapists identify the strategies they need to advance their careers.
