I was a student midwife for 2 years, I gained experience of the high pressured NHS and witnessed women’s emotions being dismissed due to the overcrowded wards and the pressure that the staff were under. This ultimately led to my decision to leave the profession. I then worked in a care home for adults with learning difficulties and mental health challenges. I gained an understanding of life in a care setting and liaised with advocates and social workers regularly. I studied counselling skills whilst I worked in the care setting. I currently work at a pharmacy as a dispenser and I am studying a masters in clinical counselling. As part of my course I do see clients and currently counsel adults with a variety of Presenting issues.
