About me


We all struggle at times - but you don't have to cope on your own.

I support people who survived developmental trauma, whose formative experiences cannot be put into words because they happened when they were so young. Not having clear memories does not mean what they endured does not have an impact. When an infant does not have their needs met, or has them met in unhealthy ways, the neonate finds alternative ways to survive. Survive, they do - but at a cost. This cost can involve not being able to connect with people, always feeling like one doesn't 'fit' in the world, of wanting connection but not knowing how to get it in healthy ways.

I also work people who identify as having an AB side, and I have written further on this below.

Please note; I am based in Nottingham, England, and am unable to travel to other locations.

Best wishes and I hope you find the support you need,


Training, qualifications & experience

I am currently a PhD candidate at the University of Chester.

I qualified as a Registered General Nurse and trained as an Independent Mental Capacity Advocate acting on behalf of people who lacked capacity (as defined by legislation).

I presently work for Nottinghamshire NHS Forensic services and in private practice.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

Sometimes early experiences helped an Adult Baby (AB) side evolve. I help men and women who identify as ABs move away from being overwhelmed by feelings of guilt and shame, of spending lots of money on binge / purge cycles.  Others tell of a fear of what an AB side means for their relationships and work. It is my privilege to help littles find a healthier way to manage any guilt and shame they may have and make peace with their little side. Of course this is not the case for all ABs; if you identify as an AB and you are in peace with this side of yourself - go you! Feel free to check-out my website for more information.
