Hi, I was born some 53 years ago and in that time have had an huge amount of life experience. I was born with a condition called Osteogenesis Imperfecta commonly known as brittle bones. I had a mild version of this disorder but managed to begin breaking my left leg from age 18 months to 15 years old quite regularly. Along the way I broke my arms, feet, fingers, toes and was known to be quite accident prone. I loved football and sports and my poor p.e. teacher at secondary school would often be calling me an ambulance on Friday afternoon after games. It was a way of life but what came with it was some pretty intense bullying. I always remember going to my secondary school 4 foot 1 inch high and 4 stone 1 lb in weight and I was an easy target. This meant that as I grew older I began to realise one of our main primary fears in life which is "I'm not good enough." Ever felt like that?
What happened then was that I left school and began to look for jobs that would fit the bill of someone who was not good enough. I ignored the exciting, high paid jobs and began to look at jobs more suited to me. I wasn't failing because I was aiming high and missing, I was failing because I was aiming low and hitting everytime. After a career in retail, running my own business and driving jobs there was a moment in my life where I started to want to give something back to the universe and I began looking at children's charities. I stumbled across the charity Childline and decided to see if I could help counsel children over the phone voluntarily. It was here I started to realise what my calling was, I loved it and I started to realise that any pain I had experienced in my past was actually a gift, in that I could use my experiences to help others. What followed was constant training and practising in hypnotherapy, psychotherapy, psychology, counselling and life coaching and I still train to this day. If I'm not working, I'm learning because you can never know enough and I believe that to be in a privileged profession like this where people share their personal lives and problems with me, I need to know my stuff.
