Why I became a Therapist

I had my kick up the bum to stop procrastinating about my life when I was standing in my kitchen doing the ironing.  For years, even though I have always worked within the role of Support, like Children’s Homes, working with clients of Sense, in the homes of clients with mobility and mental health issues, the elderly, families in poverty, families in need of support, I knew I needed to go just that little bit further.  Push myself that bit harder.  Use all of my skills that I had acquired.   Then I heard an advert on the radio about becoming a therapist/counsellor.  I can’t lie it was like getting hit by lightening.  At that moment, I just knew.  Sarah get your act together, and make the damn call.  So I did.  I have never looked back. I have met such great people, worked with diverse issues.  Now don’t get me wrong its a two way street with therapy, and the client needs to want the help as much as you want to give them skills to gain their resolution, but I absolutely love what I do.  I am lucky in that way, and I feel blessed that that day, instead of procrastinating the ironing, I actually got my board out, and “bang”, changed my life forever!!!!!
