I have worked in the field of scientific research for nearly twenty years, and, although I enjoyed the challenges of my work, I never felt that I quite fitted. I was somehow left yearning for something I couldn't identify.
I was fortunate to have the opportunity to attend the Turning Point programme last year. From the very outset of the course, I felt it offered something for me. The material seemed to be tailored to my needs; a lot of my past experiences started to make sense, and I began to find answers to long-standing questions.
After the programme, I pursued the pointers offered, which enabled me to recognise skills that I had hitherto been discounting. I have since steadily worked on defining my true priorities and aspirations, and harmonising my future life with these. In particular, I have been working to integrate my technical skills with my creative side. For the first time in my life, I feel that I am useful and that I know where I am going, and that feels good.
