About me

I am currently only seeing clients online at a reduced rate due to the risks of spreading covid 9. Hoping to resume normal practice as soon as possible. If you don't mind 'meeting' online in the short term then please get in touch.

I have helped many people who suffer with anxiety, a lack of confidence and low self esteem. I offer a non-judgemental and safe space for you to share your feelings and worries. I can help you to explore all your limiting beliefs, your fears and all that is holding you back, or maybe how other people are affecting your life and having a negative influence on you. Together we can work out what small and manageable steps you can take to get you where you want to be, having a plan can help us to feel back in control of our lives and ready to move forward in a positive direction.     

I have a beautiful garden room at my home where I see my clients. Sometimes we go for a walk in the surrounding countryside, where I can teach Mindfulness in Nature techniques, these can help reduce anxiety and can be practised on a daily basis with ease. If people are interested in my Mindfulness techniques they can ask me about it when we meet or look at my upcoming courses in the Wrexham and Chester area.

How I can help you

As an Integrative Counsellor, I adapt my style to suit your individual needs.

Part of the work we will do involves exploring your own needs, looking at where those needs are not getting met and setting goals that work towards a deeper understanding of yourself and knowing how to get those needs met. Also looking at where you might be getting in your own way, investigating what your deeper beliefs are that might be holding you back. Once this is understood you can begin to form new and empowering beliefs that will take you where you want to be.

What to expect

You will always be in charge of the decision making process in your therapy, I am the facilitator to your own process and journey. I am there to provide support and ask the right questions to unlock your true potential and understanding.

I will never ask you to relive traumatic experiences, and risk re-traumatising you. If you would like to talk through some difficult issues then it will be done in a gentle manner while having a ‘safe place’ to come back to if emotions start to run high. Sometimes we don’t need to look back into the past in order to move forward and sometimes it is ok to dip into the past but always from a safe place and with a sense of being fully in the present moment.

Nature Connection

I am also a Woodland Activity Leader and regularly run Mindfulness in the Woods events as I believe very strongly in the power of nature and our connection to it, to promote healing in both body and mind.

I can work outside with clients, in addition to a garden room I use at my home in Ffrith I also work from and meet clients at Felin Puleston, in the grounds of Erddig estate. If the weather permits we can sit by a campfire or walk in woodlands, or there is a covered area in a beautiful garden which we can use.

I teach regular Forest School sessions with my husband in schools and during school holidays, this approach can be used when I work one-one with children.

An amazing course that I run with some other tutors is 'Mindfulness & Bushcraft' please ask for more information.

Please contact me if you have any further questions or if you'd like to book an initial consultation.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Level 5 Counselling Diploma (Foundation Degree) and a BA Hons in Creative Expressive Therapies. I have training in mindfulness, suicide prevention, meditation, life coaching, NLP, hypnotherapy and Mindful Nutrition.

I have particular interest in helping people overcome anxiety and take back control of their life using a mindful approach in nature.

Before working as a counsellor I was a Mental Health Mentor for students at university, before that, a Learning Mentor for vulnerable children with challenging behaviour and/or low self-esteem and was responsible for addressing the social and emotional aspects of learning in the school. Before that a hairdresser.

Alongside my counselling work I run my own Forest School business with my husband, our mission statement is “Through our passion, enthusiasm, and belief we help people and children connect with nature, feel healthier and have meaningful experiences through positive activity and creative play”.

Please contact me if you have any further questions or if you'd like to book an initial consultation.
