About me

I absolutely love working as a counsellor and feel honoured to be a part of someone's journey to a more peaceful and fulfilling place. I practice general counselling seeing clients with a broad range of difficulties such as depression, relationship problems, anxiety, stress, low self esteem, under confidence and family issues but I have also undergone extra training in the field of Eating Disorders for both under and over eating and body image.

I firmly believe that the trust and relationship between therapist and client is vital and central to the process of change and enjoy practicing in a highly relational and humanistic way. Working through difficult thoughts, feelings and emotions in a safe, respectful and non-judgemental way empowers clients to reach within and attain overall wellness. This may at times be a challenging process but the rewards come in abundance as many happy clients have testified to.

I originally come from a varied background in health, beauty and fitness, having worked as a Beauty Therapist, Consultant, Lecturer/Trainer and Assessor for City & Guilds, BTEC and NVQ as well as a Fitness/Pilates/PiYo Instructor. 
I embrace change and have a personal philosophy to always take a positive out of a negative……make everything count!

Through years of experiencing the trauma around living with my daughter’s eating disorders, I realized I needed to understand more in order to aid her recovery and not let this devastating disease destroy us all as a family. I therefore underwent extensive re training to become an Integrative Counsellor, Eating Disorder Therapist and Advanced Emotional Freedom Technique Practitioner.

Working with a range of integrated models and tailored interventions, I can offer help to clients from all walks of life covering a wide range of difficulties as well as Eating Disordered (ED) Individuals and their families. I am extremely passionate about the need for the ED family to be supported by placing them in a position of educated awareness, understanding, patience and hope and am happy to counsel them either individually or together as a family unit. The more they understand what their person is going through and how best to live alongside and manage situations at home, the better chance there is for the ED person to recover. This also covers Emotional Overeating and Binge Eating.

I have worked in the NHS and now counsel clients privately and am proud to state that I safely practice counselling as a fully registered member of the BACP and abide by their code of ethics.


How I Work

Sometimes things can feel overwhelming. This may be obviously caused by present or historic situations or you may be unaware as to the real reason why you feel unable to cope. Talking to a skilled counsellor can help to alter your perception of a distressing situation and therefore greatly alleviate the worry and assist you in finding a better way forwards. This is done in strictest confidence and within a safe, warm and welcoming environment to put you at ease while we work together to unfold your story.

Having trained as an Integrated Counsellor I work with several models of therapy that include the following:

  • Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT)
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
  • Transactional Analysis (TA)
  • Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)
  • Person Centred
  • Gestalt
  • Sand Tray

I can see clients for counselling Individually, as a Couple or as a Family Unit, whichever is best suited to obtain the desired outcomes.
