About me

Hello. As well as being a counsellor, I am a mummy, wife, woodland activity leader and business owner. So, do I experience stress? Absolutely, often. Anxiety? It’s mostly in the past, but yes. Depression? Yes, I have been there, a long time ago now.
How do I support my own wellbeing? I walk barefoot on the grass, I sit and stare at a campfire, I blend wild herbs to drink, I improve my gut health through diet. I meditate as often as possible. I write in my journal regularly.
I set intentions at the full moon and I celebrate the solstices and equinoxes by connecting with like-minded spirits. Nature plays a key role in the therapeutic process for me.
I communicate. I practise self-care. I am committed to my own journey of personal development and I cannot afford to let that slip, not even for a few days. My needs are as important as those of my children. I know I cannot give from an empty cup.
So, do I sound like someone you could work with? Are you willing to commit to a journey of self discovery and personal development? Are you willing to get uncomfortable, to be vulnerable?
If the answer is yes, then put your trust in me and the process. I will walk with you into the unknown, hold your hand, accept and validate your feelings, so you are seen and heard but never judged.
I can offer you a safe space to unravel the tangled mess in your head and support you in putting it all back together in an orderly fashion, working with it piece by piece. I can suggest techniques that can help support your healing journey, or just watch and encourage you as you figure it out for yourself.
I would love to hear from you.

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.

Experience of working with children and young people stretches over 20 years.

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.
