Having worked as an Urban Designer for the past 25 years I have recently resigned to pursue my interest mental health & wellbeing. As a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist, I am able to teach a programme that helps people heal their broken hearts & move forward from their losses which may include bereavement, divorce, pet loss, job loss, etc. This 7 week programme offers people a new & alternative set of tools for dealing with loss & it is from having personally experienced significant grief in my life that I decided to train & offer this service on a 1-2-1 or group basis. As a direct result of this process I have opened up as a person, not only sharing my story, but also developed an interest in public speaking. In 2018 I appeared in Good Housekeeping Magazine, on local radio & in local press promoting mental health & well being; most recently have been filmed for a television series which is to be aired in the next few months.
