About me

I work as an independent counsellor and as an associate of futureminds. I have 30 years experience working within a variety of contexts, GP surgeries, School settings and mental health CAMHS teams and looked after children within a care system.

I really enjoy making a difference in as short a time as is possible for people. I am at present based in Ashby de la Zouch and have rooms within futureminds practice, which offer private and comfortable consulting rooms. (

I work with adults, children and adolescents as well as individuals, couples and families. I specialise in child and adolescent mental health including working closely with private fostering agencies offering training and support for foster carers as well as direct work with children.

I work in a positive, respectful, non-judgmental and anti oppressive manner and believe that all human beings have the capacity the help themselves with the right support and guidance.
