In a nutshell
I’ve worked as a careers adviser since 1996 and as a counsellor since 2009. Over the years, it’s been a privilege to accompany so many people as they’ve moved, in their own unique ways, from stuckness and confusion towards freedom and clarity.
As well as running Goodwill Guidance, I work part time as a careers adviser at Solent University and have championed a user friendly strategy to assess the impact of careers guidance.
I moved into the psychotherapy world after many years of involvement with Touch for Health. Touch for Health, the Gestalt approach and Autogenic Training all view our body and mind as an integrated whole.
’Why Goodwill Guidance?'
It's to recognise the moments of healing goodwill, of compassionate here and now awareness celebrated by many traditions and practices, that may guide us to make more of our lives.
