“THE SECRET OF GETTING AHEAD IS GETTING STARTED ”
Hi I'm Pam, and I am a fully qualified BACP registered counsellor. My interest into the mind first began as a young adult. I discovered how profound the difficulties associated with mental health can be, not to mention the stigma that can surround asking for help. I often found myself being that person family and friends came to, when they were in need of a listening ear. That's when I started asking myself these questions;
Why do we do the things we do?
What influences our behaviors?
How do we take control?
How do we cope with challenging situations?
How do our feelings effect our lives?
What makes us who we are?
With these questions fresh in my mind, I started to find out more about mental health. I later decided I wanted to train as a counsellor , maybe I could help others who were asking similar questions.
During my training
Whilst I was studying, I did a lot of self-reflection and personal growth and development, through working one to one with my own counsellor. I worked through many difficult and thought provoking processes to enable me to have a deeper understanding of myself, and my experiences. My counsellor offered me a safe and non-judgmental space to share which helped me to navigate the world of my mind and feelings. I found the experience to be liberating, and helped me to see who I was, that's when I knew I had chosen the right profession for me.
I couldn't wait to be able to develop that relationship with my own clients, and try and help them in their lives.
We all deserve Peace of mind, but sometimes things happen that can cause disharmony.
