When I was younger I wanted to be a doctor, but I was too squeamish so I did a degree in law, then became a chartered accountant. But I was always more interested in people than business so moved into lecturing in the UK and Asia and then the management of a training business in Singapore, managing 40 staff and overseeing customer care for over 2,000 students across Asia. In 2010 my family moved to Perth and I decided to pursue my interest in helping people further by undertaking a Masters in Counselling and Psychotherapy.

My intention with Carpe Diem Counselling and Coaching is to combine my counselling qualifications with my training and business experience to offer practical and realistic assistance to help you deal better with your emotional problems and move forward with your life.
