Truly this is a new concept for me, a blog! Firstly, i’ll Introduce myself so that you can gain an insight into myself ‘Kay’ the counsellor. How it all began? After two major life experiences late in life, I decided to seek some personal counselling, and shortly afterwards I decided to undertake an introduction to counselling certificate, initially for CPD but also to use in my personal life. The rest is history, I trained through to a Level 4 diploma, and after some years now about to engage in private practice.
There are so many reasons why I felt a change in direction was needed, for me it was a positive step towards actually enjoying being involved in the counselling community, Ive learned so much about myself during my time as a person centred therapist. My friends and family fully support my choices in life, after all they are my choices!. It’s been a huge learning curve for me, and continue to learn, do we ever stop?
I feel privileged to have shared in my client’s life experiences and cultures. Ive lived in the far east Shanghai/S.Korea for a few years, gaining an understanding into their unique ways, and engaging in their many cultural events.
Now it’s time to use all these life experiences which Ive gained, and draw upon this in my counselling life. Its and exciting time and Im looking forward to this new chapter of my life.
I’m looking forward, not dwelling too much on my past, its all about the ‘Hereand Now’…
