Currently, I volunteer as a spiritual counselor in the mental health sector for the NHS whilst doing a psychology degree. Prior to this, I worked in holistic health, performing massage and reiki. Personal experiences with dementia, parkinsons, and other mental health issues led me to search for answers through psychology. As a mum of three teenagers and carer to elderly parents, a wide variety of mental wellbeing issues interest me. Due to my holistic practices, my psychological work is a mixture of intuitive thought and scientific reasoning. I’m a keen advocate of empowering ‘ordinary’ people to look after the welfare of their community through ‘ordinary’ activities. I regularly share through my Facebook page Muddy boots for mental wellbeing.
