About me

Following over twenty years in retail leadership I undertook a career change. I decided to follow my life long passion of working with people - without an agenda. I hold a couple of positions in addition to private therapist. I support large companies with Mental Health & Well-being strategies, In addition I’m a Mental Health First Aid England instructor and plenary speaker.

My passion is to support those who wish to drive off their mental ill-health, by adopting an holistic well-being strategy. I work with Sleep firstly, then appetite and breathing. Only then will we experience Mental Health improvement.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

National Counselling & Psychotherapy Society (NCPS)

The National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society

This Not For Profit association of counsellors and psychotherapists aim to support the counselling profession, members and training organisations.

In 2013 the NCS register was accredited by the Professional Standards Authority under the Accredited Voluntary Register Scheme. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I would encourage everyone to engage with a therapist who is able to provide a safe non-judgemental environment in which life can be explored.

I don't believe you have to suffer to engage with therapy - I conduct Walking and Photography therapy as a pre-emptive therapy process. Allowing thoughts to be processed in a non-judgemental and/or solution focused environment.

Life coaching is best conducted with those who have lived a life.
