About me

I am proud to be a Counsellor / Supervisor I work extremely hard to achieve perfecting the skill to enable and empower others to achieve. I am a natural giver, a great believer in giving back to the community which has enriched me further in experience and skills. I currently volunteer at a national mental health charity and now wish to extend a free service to our unemployed Ex Service individuals who have given so much.

Due to my extensive background and skills I am currently sourced by outside agencies to support teenagers families parents to reduce conflicts and stresses in family life and improve communication and healthier attachment relationships

My accomplishments involves working comprehensively with:

  • Supporting disadvantaged children in building their trust, confidence and self esteem
  • Empowering men, women, and young people who have experienced domestic abuse
  • Enabling children and young people who are or have been a “Looked After Child”
  • Supporting individuals in dealing with Redundancy, Loss, and Bereavement
  • Working in HMP to address outstanding issues and current dysfunctional behaviour associated with addictions, drugs and alcohol misuse
  • Supporting families with children with diagnosed or undiagnosed learning difficulties, social and school phobias

If you need help with work/life balance, relationships, coping with change, redundancy, adjusting to   parenthood or settling into school, college or university, or feeling you are not 'fitting in'

What to Expect.......
My approach is tailored to the individual, and is underpinned by my belief that we are all unique, and have the right to be accepted and appreciated for who we really are.

My goal is for us to achieve TOGETHER a mental tool box that will always be available, be full of resilience tools, resources you can facilitate in building better relationships, healing the hurt, addressing negative thoughts and feelings, overcome the fear, to recognise and facilitate your strengths. Once you have these empowerment tools they are there for life and can be shared with others.

I can and will help you deal with any issue...

My aim is to empower you to grow confidence, self-worth, and belief and have the courage to progress along your life's pathway... Let’s speak soon....

Further information


If you are seeking answers to difficulties then I can help. I have supported families and teenagers daily for 15 years. I can offer you an individual package to suit your family needs.

All families are unique and the answer to solving long term / current difficulties is not on the Internet or in a textbook, it requires a human touch, a facilitator who has the skill and specialism in recognising strengths and can guide your children through the difficult times. Encourage positive change in a sensitive and secure atmosphere and ensure they have life time skills to apply through any difficulty they may face.
