About me

Sometimes all we need is an outside perspective, or simply to find a way past obstacles that we have struggled with. As an Aroma Freedom Psychotherapist, I can offer an entirely new method, using pure essential oils, combined with specific focusing exercises to transform your emotions and realise your heart’s desire alongside traditional psychotherapy approaches; a method that people can use on themselves or others in a matter of minutes. While we will certainly talk about your issues, we clearly have other tools to bring peace into your life that identify and release your negative thoughts, feelings and memories. Therapy literally helps your emotional energy to flow in a positive direction towards growth and expansion, rather than contracting in fear, doubt and paralysis.

As a registered and accredited psychotherapist and hypnotherapist for the last ten years, an Aroma Freedom Technique Practitioner and qualified teacher with over twenty-five years practice within the education sector, I have worked with children, adults, individuals, couples and groups, and have studied many of the most progressive techniques for body, mind and emotional wellness.

  • Teacher in practice since 1993
  • Psychotherapist and Hypnotherapist in practice since 2008
  • Essential Oil User since 2016
  • Aroma Freedom Technique Practitioner
  • The Memory Resolution Technique Practitioner trained by Dr Perkus
  • Trained in multiple traditional and alternative approaches by Dr Perkus

Choosing a therapist is a bit like navigating; you want to get to a different place. I can offer you a way to get from where you are, to where you desire to be.  People come to see me in person or online, to progress from where they are to where they desire to be. They feel stuck, unable to move in an area of their life, whether it is a business, personal or wellness goal, finding or keeping a satisfying relationship, or living a life of passion and purpose. We all need to feel that we are getting somewhere.

“Take care of your body. It's the only place you have to live." Jim Rohn

I don’t underestimate the happiness that I receive from the small things in life. Without having the distraction of transport and social activities on my doorstep, I can be left with just my imagination and senses to take me on an adventure.

Although I live in the countryside, I still lead a busy and hectic life. However, when out walking with my dogs, the sounds, aromas and peace move me to take notice of my surroundings and live in the moment.

There’s no denying that for me, being close to nature has played a big part in moulding me into the person I am today; I can’t help but feel grounded. Plants should be placed in the soil that works for them, exposed to the right amount of sunlight and watered with just the right amount of water, or they will not thrive. In many ways we have the same needs.
