About Me

Hello and welcome to my profile!
I am mature lady. South. African British with 3 grown up kids, a boy and two girls and a proud nanny of two little boys, a partner and two grown up kids a boy and a girl (stepchildren). Although I spend most of my time reading but,  family means a lot to me and I do enjoy swimming, I have to admit that, I hate travelling.

Helping others as a counsellor is my passion, i.e. Every issue does  matter for example, known or unspoken mental
health due to seclusion or homelessness, the cycle of depression, anxiety, family matters,
bereavement, lockdown difficulties, domestic violence, emotional breakdown, self-harming,
and/or other issues such as relationship.
Time given in counselling is a pleasure. My work here is with adult above 18.
