 Hi all.
A little bit about me and my background. I am a divorced single mum whose children are all almost grown up and flown the nest. My oldest son has moved to Australia to start a life over there and my youngest is about to start college.
I have been an Integrative Counseling Therapist for almost fifteen years utilizing my skills in the form of teaching. Together with counseling in the fields of bereavement, relationships and drugs and alcohol. I have been privileged to have worked very closely with a very diverse range of people from all walks of life.
 I have also worked as a Family Mediation Worker in very contrasting communities by way of wealth and status. This role has had me working hand in hand with the local authorities and the statutory sector to prevent young people going into the local Authority Care system or becoming street homeless by reducing the family conflict that was occurring.
 I am currently working as a project worker, still working with young people aged sixteen to twenty one but on a part time basis so I can start to do the things that I enjoy doing now that my children are almost grown up.
 I have an interest in spirituality and the diversity of life. My main aim over the next year is to write a book on becoming more life and death accepting. Followed by more books that will hopefully educate more people with accepting life and dealing with issues like, Sexual Exploitation, Bereavement, Anger Management and many more topics. It will be a collation of all my learning over the years thanks to the amazing people I have met in my Teaching Mediation and Counseling roles.
 Thank you for taking the time to read my profile. I hope that you have a fantastic day that makes you smile.
Keep Smiling
