I am a qualified and experienced Couples and Family Therapist. I am also a registered and Accredited Eating Disorders therapist.

My dedication to developing my practice means that I also trained in Mindfulness which I practice daily both on an individual basis as well as hosting group sessions. I am a qualified supervisor. In my spare time I volunteer as a grief, bereavement and loss counsellor as well as a supervisor for Cruse Bereavement Care. I sit on one of the committee's at Lancashire Cruse. My working role means I have extensive experience in Autism and Learning disabilities having worked in that field for eight years and latterly managing a physical and learning disability service/team.

In 2017 I successfully completed a Diploma in NLP. In 2018 I will complete a course in Attachment/Family Therapy with the renowned Bowlby Centre in London.

I have extensive experience in working with Personality Disorder (PD) and Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID)  having worked as lead practitioner in both PD and DID. I work across the full spectrum of disorders however I have particular interest in trauma, eating disorders, bereavement and family therapy.
