About me


                                                        A very warm Welcome to you!

Imagine feeling empowered to make clear choices about your physical, spiritual and emotional well being.

Do you feel a need to make sense of what is happening in your life right now?

Would it be helpful to talk about what's troubling you, in a safe and supportive atmosphere?

Do you want to find ways to feel better about yourself and to move forward?


I will offer you a safe space to take a fresh look at your life and to talk freely and openly about your thoughts, feelings and concerns in a way that is rarely possible in our daily life. My aim is always to support you in making sense of your life in a way that leads to a renewed sense of hope.


As an intuitive, integrative Counsellor, I will help you gain a deeper understanding of your emotions, patterns of thinking and behaviour, along with your dreams and goals. I am a mindfulness teacher, and specialise in working with anxiety and depression, so together, we will create opportunities for self-discovery that allows you to heal, opening doors; and enabling you to create the life you want. I offer a therapeutic relationship where you will be met with warmth, honesty and a genuine commitment in understanding you.


I build on Clients strengths, as well as getting to the core of the issue. Clients report that their therapy effectively addresses their concerns and issues, whilst gaining greater self-awareness and a clear understanding of themselves and their situations, and the ability to make real positive changes in all areas of their lives.


Psychotherapy and Counselling help you gain greater insight and understanding into your thoughts, feelings and actions, this process enables you to have greater freedom to make the choices you want in life.

Investing in yourself is the biggest investment you can make.

I am a qualified Mindfulness based stress reduction Teacher, and will be running a MBSR 8 week course in May 2016 ( Mindfulness based stress reduction)
http://www.emotionalfreedom4you.co.uk/mindfulness-based-stress-reduction-8-week-course/



The MBSR 8-week course will help you find ways of living life with less stress, help you cope better and improve your sense of well being and quality of life.  The aim of the course is to bring more awareness and acceptance into everyday life by establishing a daily mindfulness practice; to deepen understanding of the way we think, feel and react to stress and to understand and practice mindful responses to stress. The course is very practical and participatory; over the weeks we systematically work to cultivate the skill necessary to live a life with more ease, joy and present moment awareness.

I am a qualified Mindfulness based stress reduction Teacher, and will be running MBSR 8 week course ( Mindfulness based stress reduction)   (For dates and more information, please see my website - to be added soon)

http://www.emotionalfreedom4you.co.uk/mindfulness-based-stress-reduction-8-week-course/

MBSR is a structured 8 week group course teaching mindfulness meditation as an effective and dependable counter-balance to the stresses of life.It will help you find ways of living life with less stress, help you cope better, improve your sense of well being and quality of life.

We will focus on developing life skills (rather than providing a ‘quick fix’) thereby promoting a greater awareness of ourselves, others and the world around us, as well as a greater capacity to manage stress and improve attention. The course is very practical and participatory; over the weeks we systematically work to cultivate the skill necessary to live a life with more ease, joy and present moment awareness.

When you are mindful, you are more keenly aware of everything that is going on within and around you in this current moment, because you are not so preoccupied with your usual mental wrangling. The "space" that mindfulness opens up gives you the opportunity to observe the happenings of the world in a fresh light and to accept "what is" and leave it at that. 

Without mindfulness, you may react mentally, emotionally and physically to life, and sometimes the consequences of those reactions are even more damaging that the events that brought them up in the first place! 

This course is suitable for newcomers as well as experienced meditators. It is also extremely helpful for professionals, particularly health professionals, and anyone wishing to find ways of living a less stressful life.

Both the MBSR program and the facilitator create a safe, hospitable environment, as they partner with participants to form a deeply engaging space for learning and growth.

Reported benefits of attending the course include: 

  • A greater capacity for relaxation and calmness
  • Less worry, anxiety and depression
  • Enhanced emotional control, resourcefulness and resilience
  • Improved self-confidence and creativity
  • Better sleep quality
