I am a mental health and wellness author, advocate and trainee mental health coach based in County Tipperary, Ireland.
My passion for the area of mental health, like many, was born when I went on my own personal mental health journey. I have battled with depression and anxiety and have come out the other side, learning alot along the way.
It was mental health coaching through tools such as CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), mindfulness and reflection that I eventually got to a place of living a normal life again. It’s times like these in our lives when we really get the opportunity to re-evaluate life and approach things from a different perspective.
I have studied Counselling and Psychotherapy for one year and achieved my certificate. This has given me a better understanding of my own process and journey and has also helped me develop my skills and tools to help others.
I am currently in the process of developing myself further in order to help more people by studying to become a life coach and mental health mentor.
Till next time,
