About me

I can help you find the right tool(s) for you to help yourself.

We all experience a wide range of feelings, such as personal loss, anxiety, grief, depression, anger and may have problems at home, at work, with relationships and many others.  If you need a professional, confidential, friendly ear, you can find one here.

I have worked with Macmillan (Leighton, Crewe), supporting cancer patients, carers, family members, the bereaved and many others (see this link).  I hold a B.Sc (Hons) Computer Science and have been teaching yoga since April 2011.  I hold a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling (which enables me to work with clients at a professional level).  I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy).  I have a lot of very varied life-experience, and I began to study counselling after various personal losses and traumas, learning not only that it IS 'good to talk' - it can be vital.  I believe that a client needs their own space to discover themselves and understand what they need, and though I can help facilitate this process, you must be prepared to work for yourself within therapy, and reap your own rewards.  I feel it is most important that you find the right therapist for you before you begin your journey of healing.

I am a yoga teacher and also practice mindfulness meditation.
