About: Originally from the Isle of Man I trained as a Nursery Nurse and was fortunate enough to use this qualification to travel as much as possible and moved to Bermuda in 1993 to work as a nanny. In 1999 I decided to stop working so I could bring up my own children and I returned to the UK in 2000. When my youngest child started school I decided to retrain as a Counsellor/Psychotherapist and I completed my qualification in 2012. It was around this time that I started volunteering for Dhiverse as a HIV counsellor; this soon led to an employed position. In 2018 we secured funding which allowed us to open up the counselling service to all areas of sexual health and sexual identity. I am now able to support many more people and I love the challenges my role brings on a daily basis. I feel very fortunate to be working with the most amazing clients.
