Humble Beginnings

After practicing accounting for many years and feeling empty behind the desk, I searched for something different, something that would give me a sense of fulfilment, a way to make a difference in the lives of people and be a blessing to the nations.

I joined Youth with a Mission (YWAM), served in different nations and encountered different people. Leading the School of Discipleship was one of my roles while on mission. As a leader, many students shared their issues with me. I offered counsel to the best of my ability. I loved it but also realised that I was limited to helping people find solutions to their issues and challenges.

This got me on the journey to study counselling and psychotherapy in order to professionally assist people to find solutions and recover fully from their issues. I have gained great experience offering counselling to many people in different parts of the world. The journey has been great. I love what I do and I would love to see you and many others recovered.
