About me

Unexpected or ongoing difficult life events can often leave us feeling unable to 'think straight' and/or feel ok in ourselves. I offer my clients a calm and positive space to work through those challenges, giving an opportunity for self-reflection utilising a combination of coaching and counselling methodologies

During our sessions, I work directly on problem-solving behaviours, helping you to develop day-to-day tools for finding constructive, creative solutions to the things you’re finding difficult. This is an approach that is designed to promote personal growth and change, offering the opportunity to develop the kinds of skills that can be applied to all areas of life.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a UKCP registered Psychotherapist, Supervisor and Trainer and offer a range of therapies to suit client’s needs. I work with adults on a short, medium, and long-term basis, online and face to face.

I have particular experience working as a Bereavement and Loss Counsellor within a Hospice setting and as a Life Coach with a focus on general health and wellbeing, diet and exercise. Previous experience gained within the NHS in the Time to Talk service focused on a variety of areas including anxiety and depression, relationship difficulties and living with ongoing health issues. I have worked in the Financial Services Sector for over 26 years, specialising in People Resource Management so bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to my practice in association with this, especially in relation to Life and Careers coaching.
