Personal qualities / strengths as a counsellor
Bringing healing to myself and then others has always felt like a calling. I see so much hurt and pain within people that to be able to assist them in their deep healing and personal understanding is beautiful. I am humbled to witness and be a part of it with them.
I grew up in England surrounded by so much history that was held within the very land that we lived upon. I could always feel and see differently than others. I seemed to be able to tell when something was sitting within a person, a pain if you will, one that I knew I could help alleviate. From the journey through my own trauma, I have gained, and am still gaining, a deeper understanding of myself and how healing from the position of acceptance and empathy can impact each person on a very unique level.
