I help people find solutions to problems in their life. You may be experiencing changes such as children living home, redundancy, or the break up of a relationship. These significant events can cause anxiety and leave you feeling stressed. This stress can cause physical symptoms such as headaches, muscle tension, stomach pain, sleep problems and palpitations. You may be feeling irritable or be plague by constant negative thoughts. Talking to a trained professional, outside of the situation, can help you find a way to mange stress more effectively and feel more resourced.
Recent statistics show that over 8.2 million people suffer from anxiety each year, that women are twice as likely to experience anxiety than men. Anxiety is a response to overwhelming stress or the fear or something going wrong.
I work with adults, children & teenagers. I enjoy supporting parents to improve relationships with their children or teenager. I share my understanding of the changes in the brain, during adolescence, to support their vital job as parents, helping them to understand behaviour as a symptom rather than the problem.
It is important to choose someone that you feel comfortable with and that has the expertise to help you. I am an experienced Child & Adult Psychotherapist, registered with the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). I have been working in this field since 1995.
I also offer Equine Assisted Psychotherapy which uses horses for personal development. This unique approach can benefit a range of children, young people & adults as an alternative to talking therapies. It can work alongside other therapies where someone feels 'stuck' in their lives.

Training, qualifications & experience
I started my work with people as a youth worker based in an advice, information and counselling centre in Carlisle. I went on to train as a drug and alcohol counsellor for a local charity. This work introduced me to Transactional Analysis which is a theory of personality and communication. I was intrigued and wanted to learn more. I started my training as a psychotherapist, gaining my qualification in 2008 as a Certified Transactional Analyst.
I am also a UKCP registered Child & Adult Psychotherapist.
I have specialist training in trauma with Babette Rothschild author of '8 Keys to Safe Trauma Recovery' & 'The Body Remembers'
I am Advance Certicated with EAGALA, Equine Assisted Growth & Learning Association and work as a mentor for them.
