About me

I can help you to take effective action to live your best life by reducing the impact of painful thoughts and feelings. Together, we'll explore the root cause of your anxiety, and by understanding your triggers, we can gain insights into managing them effectively

I have a range of tools and strategies to help you handle difficult feelings, disrupt unhelpful thought processes, and rise above self-limiting beliefs. I'd love to support you in exploring your deepest desires for who you want to be and what you want to stand for in life instead of feeling stuck in worry, anxiety, and rumination.  I will support you with the time and space to talk about whatever is bothering you without any judgment, and together we'll unravel it, process, it, and move forward as a team.

Reaching out is hard, so let me help

I understand that it can be difficult to reach out and the variety of support on offer is often confusing. I want to help you feel comfortable and supported. So, if you'd like to drop me a note by text or email, please feel free. Next, I will arrange a free no-obligation consultation held online. You can choose to have a video or voice-only consultation, and I will do my best to help you feel at ease. I will ask a few questions and you can talk about your issues in complete confidence. From this consultation, we can get a feel for working together and answer any questions or concerns you may have.

Where I work

My practice is online via a secure, safe platform which means I can work anywhere in the UK. I also have limited face-to-face and walk-and-talk sessions here in Belper Derbyshire. I offer a kind, welcoming, and encouraging space where you can talk through whatever is troubling you.

    I have worked in well-being and mental health for three decades, within the NHS, for Derbyshire County Council, and privately including the role of therapeutic lead within a secure mental health unit. I have helped individuals with loss, trauma, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, navigate big changes, and more.
  • I have regularly undergone continuing professional development to keep my skills and qualifications up to date, therefore I am trained and experienced in a range of therapeutic approaches. I do not believe in a one-size-fits-all approach, therefore I will work sensitively with you to uncover and solve problems at their root. I can help you resolve a wide range of problems and concerns that might affect your ability to live a full and enjoyable life, helping you achieve a new sense of well-being and inner calm, in a natural and healthy way.

I have experienced life's ups and downs, from early trauma, caring for a child with special needs, relationship breakdown, being out of work, and starting again in mid-life. At times, I have undergone therapy which I've always found to be a transformative experience, and it was my own experience of therapy that led me to train as a therapist. Therefore I understand it can be hard to reach out and daunting to ask for therapy. That is why I offer completely non-judgmental support in an empathic and sensitive way. Please reach out, I look forward to helping you meet your needs and offer a no-obligation free 1st session.
