About me

About me

I am the founder and director of Mindflow Therapeutic Services, in Romiley, Stockport which offers psychological and emotional support for adults, young people and children feeling overwhelmed and struggling to cope with a variety of issues including stress, anxiety and depression.

I am a BACP Accredited Counsellor and Psychotherapist with over 9 years' experience of working face-to-face, in groups and one-to-one, with adults, young people and children in diverse settings both in the UK and USA. I work for a variety of NHS trusts within IAPT, staff wellbeing and learning disability services.

I have extensive personal experience (over 25 years), and training in mindfulness approaches for health and wellbeing which I integrate into my therapeutic work. I am a listed mindfulness teacher and trainer with the UK Mindfulness Network for Teacher Trainers.

I offer mindfulness approaches for individuals and groups offering adults, young people and children the tools to work with a variety of difficulty for example, exams pressures, work-related stress, anxiety and depression.  I have a specialism in working with autistic children and their parents.

I run 8-week Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) programmes. These programmes teach people the skills of mindfulness meditation and help people to better understand the workings of their own mind, to be more responsive and less reactive with the challenges and opportunities that life brings.

I offer training for health care professionals in Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), and Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR).

I offer clinical supervision for counsellors and trainee counsellors and mindfulness supervision and mentoring for practitioners using mindfulness approaches within their therapeutic work.

As a yoga teacher I have developed Mindflow Yoga Therapy for anxiety and stress reduction. Mindflow Yoga Therapy is offered one-to-one or in small groups.
