I love to help other people – whether that is through just listening to them, supporting them or providing them with tools or information that they may find valuable. This is probably pretty useful, given that I am a psychotherapist.
I didn’t start my career as a therapist though – I joined byrne·dean last year after having spent several years working as a finance lawyer at a range of international law firms and investment banks, including White and Case and Addleshaw Goddard. I really enjoyed by job as a lawyer but in the fast-paced corporate environment I also became aware that so many of my peers were chronically stressed, anxious, depressed, tired… and I was not doing much better myself.
So I became passionate about learning tools and strategies to improve and manage the state of my own physical and mental health and to help those around me. I became so passionate about this stuff, I probably signed up to do a bit too much training: I decided to do a masters in nutrition for public health, training to become a psychotherapist and hypnotherapist, meditation teacher training, a biomedicine diploma and training in neuro-linguistic programming… it was definitely worth it though!
Delivering mental health and resilience-building training with byrne·dean enables me to help so many people – and for this I am incredibly grateful!
