My favourite thing about being a counsellor:
Every day, I meet the most amazing people. Many of them have gone through trauma, dealing with their mental health and often struggle to support their children with mental health concerns. I believe that these are the bravest people I have ever encountered. Being able to journey with these bold, courageous people through their struggles makes me feel incredibly fortunate.
What is unique about me as a counsellor?
I own my mistakes - apologise when I'm wrong, and I'm not afraid to say I'm still learning.
What are my goals?
I want to ensure everyone has access to mental health support, no matter where you are or where you come from.
Most impressive Achievements?
In early high school, my maths teacher suggested I drop maths because she believed I would never pass my final year. She told me that I was not smart enough to finish school. - I finished year 12 with a great result.
A career coach suggested I took up a trade and believed I would never get through uni. I finished studying with three distinctions and an awarded the most dedicated student.
My enrolment at a web design college was rejected. I managed to land a job where I had the opportunity to teach myself web design ( with all the HTML, CSS, and PHP coding). I later built a web design and online marketing company helping small businesses build their online presence.
One quirky fact about me?
I live with a family of pranksters.
