LIVING A MEANINGFUL LIFE



I have been fortunate in my life to follow multiple passions built around a collection of skills and interests which have purpose and meaning for me. As an American, I have worked with families and young people on a Native American Indian reservation in North Dakota and with disaffected youths in the south side of Chicago. In the UK, I have co-orindated community arts festivals, worked in professional touring theatre and curated art exhibitions. I have experience working in welfare rights and employment programmes. I also set up and ran a successful food business. I made the transition into Coaching as the first step in recognising a common 'thread' throughout my life- an insatiable curiosity about people's lives and their stories.

I decided to become a Therapist following many years working as a Coach with individuals in prisons, in the community with ex-offenders, refugees, the homeless and long term unemployed. The stories I heard became a story about isolation, living in a state of crisis and chaos, abuse, trauma and the difficulties they encountered in trying to make their lives more stable and secure. As a result a lot of my work focuses on issues resulting from sexual, physical and emotional abuse, trauma, anxiety, attachment and relational difficulties.
