lived and worked through the motherhood journey, in


  • France, where I volunteered on a building site (driving a crane!).

  • The Royal Victoria Hospital in Belfast, Northern Ireland where I was employed as a medical social worker in areas of high deprivation working with victims of the Troubles. 

  • South Africa, where I worked for an educational improvement project for black students, which was labelled ‘subversive’ and later banned by the apartheid regime.

  • Lesotho, where I coordinated the Lesotho-Ireland Secondary Teachers Programme in a beautiful, mountain kingdom, while parenting two children under five.

  • The Netherlands, where I completed an MA at the renowned Institute of Social Studies and qualified in hypnosis with the Eclectic Psychology Institute, Nijmegen.
