From Banking's High-Pressure to Therapeutic Guidance:
Navigating the demanding world of investment banking in London's financial districts for over two decades exposed me to the intense stress and anxiety that such high-stakes environments can induce.
Driven by this understanding and my own encounters with stress, I sought solace in relaxation techniques, hypnosis, meditation, and mindful breathing. These tools not only provided me with relief but also ignited a passion to delve deeper into the therapeutic realm.
Recognising the transformative power of these techniques, I was inspired to transition from the world of banking to therapeutic guidance, with a mission to support others in their journey towards mental equilibrium and well-being.
