About me

I am a qualified and registered Counsellor, Psychotherapist and Supervisor. I practice from a dedicated therapy centre in Blackpool. I also work from home in private practice.

I am a Registered Certified Accredited Advanced EFT Practitioner. I am a registered Advanced Integral Eye Movement (IEMT) Practitioner. I am trained in Mindfulness which I practice personally every day and I offer Mindfulness to both groups and individuals.

I am a qualified psychotherapy supervisor offering individual and group supervision.

As a qualified and experienced Couples and Family Therapist  I work with opposite sex, same sex and transgender couples. I work with sexual and sexuality difficulties, identity issues including Intersex struggles, children, parenting, second and extended families, affairs, anger, domestic violence, communication difficulties, impact of life-stage transitions, separation and divorce as well as illness and bereavement/loss.

I am a registered and Accredited Eating Disorders psychotherapist.

I have particular interest in working with high demand groups and cults.

I am an Attachment Narrative Therapy (Systemic Family Therapist) having trained with the renowned Bowlby Centre in London. I have extensive experience in working with Personality Disorder (PD) and Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID) having previously worked as lead practitioner in both PD and DID.

About me: In my spare time I volunteer as a grief, bereavement and loss counsellor as well as a supervisor for Cruse Lancashire (Bereavement Care). I sit on the governing committee of Cruse Lancashire. I am also a local authority governor of a local primary school.

Governing Bodies/ Insurance: I am a member of the BACP, BABCP, EFT International and the Association of Intergral Eye Movement Practitioners. I hold a current Enhanced DBS disclosure. I am fully insured to practice.

Areas of particular interest: I work across the full spectrum of disorders however I have particular interest in all areas of trauma, OCD, eating disorders, high end groups and bereavement. In my bereavement work I have a particular passion in working with suicidal people, survivors of suicide and with the families/friends of those whom live with the aftermath of suicide when a person has completed suicide. I have particular interest in couple/relationship work which fits with my family therapy work.

I have worked within Autism and Intellectual Impairment for the last nine years latterly managing a statutory disability service. Therefore I have a lot of experience in supporting challenging situations and behavioural distress.

As a supervisor I have particular interest in Self Care, Compassion Fatigue, Burnout and Vicarious Trauma.

In February 2019 I completed a foundation course in Infertility Therapy and Surrogacy and in 2019 my plan is to achieve BICA accredited status in this field.


I am passionate about therapy and joining people on their journey and hopefully making that process and their journey both healing and illuminating.
