I have lived and worked with the holding and supporting of others (family, friends, and patients), through the final days of their lives. I continue to value, learn and appreciate all that this unique experience brings to each individual. My passion lies with working with people nearing the end of their life and supporting them and their families with the final challenges that life can present to them. Now, as a Doula in Training, I seek to support whoever may need this in my local community (South Shropshire / North Herefordshire / West Worcestershire).
My history to date? A qualification and career in social work with a range of client groups – children, adults, carers, palliative care, and now in Practice Education of student social workers; a qualification in Adlerian Counselling and now working in private practice; voluntary work with a bereavement charity, alongside a range of eclectic skills including running a guest house and vegan recipe writing and catering for many!
I believe in providing a safe space for each individual and family to explore the issues that they want to address – be those practical or emotional – and support them in achieving all that is realistically possible.”
