'I will try again tomorrow'."
Mary Anne Radmacher
I have always had a heart for people and knew from an early age that I would end up in a ‘helping profession’. I began my career as an occupational therapist working within a variety of NHS settings. This gave me the opportunity to support people facing both physical and mental health difficulties – helping them to understand and come to terms with the impact of these challenges on their lives, whilst encouraging them in working towards their goals for independence. It was from here that I found my true vocation and trained to become a counsellor.
Having worked as an accredited counsellor, I took a career break to raise my family and am grateful for the many experiences gained during that time. There has been joy and sadness, challenges and life changes all of which have shaped the person and counsellor I am today. I am committed to growing both personally and professionally and regularly attend training to keep up to date.
