About me

I aim to provide a safe, welcoming, confidential space, and support people to find a way through whatever challenges they face - to greater wellbeing and a more enriching life.

I have been working in the field of wellbeing and mental health for over 20 years, and have worked with many hundreds of people. Using mindfulness and a range of therapeutic approaches, I work together with each person to find an approach that really suits who they are and their current life situation.

I specialise in anxiety, including generalised anxiety disorder, OCD, social anxiety, health anxiety and phobias.

I wholeheartedly believe in the human capacities for resilience, self-healing and creativity. Life inevitably has its difficulties, and sooner or later we all get stuck. At times like these it can be very helpful to have an ally that we can turn to. My aim is to be that kind of ally.

If you feel that I could be helpful to you, please get in touch.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a registered psychotherapist and a registered mindfulness teacher. Qualifications include a masters degree in counselling, post-graduate diploma in person-centred counselling, a degree in psychology, a certificate in mindfulness, a certificate in supervision. Further training includes compassion-focused therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, CBT, emotion-focused therapy, and process work.

I worked for 6 years as a senior counsellor for Mind and 10 years as a counsellor and outreach worker for Visyon. I have worked with children and families, as well as adults, and for 5 years worked as a school counsellor.

I am currently a teacher on the doctorate in counselling psychology at the University of Manchester, director of Mindfulness for All CIC, and a supervisor of counsellors, psychotherapists and mindfulness teachers.
