About me

As a busy woman, keeping the plates spinning, juggling work and home and family and a million other things, it's easy to lose sight of yourself.

you feel overwhelmed
not good enough
unsure who you are any more, or what the point is
you feel stressed out
your confidence has taken a nose dive
you put everyone else first, always
you worry what everyone else thinks
you don’t know how much longer you can cope with feeling like this

Maybe you have past experiences that you’ve never dealt with (but you know they still affect you)
Maybe you’re going through changes in your life (sometimes they’re positive, but they’re still stressful, right?)
Perhaps your relationships are suffering (the people around you are feeling the impact of your struggles)

It's heavy stuff right?

You don't want to carry on like this - for the next year, five years, ten years…

You want to feel more confident – at work, at home, in your social life
You want to trust in your own judgement – and forget about what others think
You want to be able to communicate with those close to you more clearly, to have better, more equal, genuine relationships
You want to work out who YOU are and what YOU want out of life – and stop letting the past or your fears hold you back from being happy.

I can help. 

I’ve worked with women who have experienced challenges just like this, who have grown to like themselves, improve their relationships, and to feel better.

Not only that… I’ve been there. I ran my own business, and worked for a number of years in a large corporate, juggling work and family life with my physical and mental health – so I understand how you feel, and I know how hard it can be to reach out and ask for help.

I won't give advice or tell you what to do (I trust that you know what's best for you!) but I will hold your hand every step of the way as you go on a journey to find the life you want and deserve.

I follow a detailed intake procedure which helps me to understand your problems and where they come from, and I individually tailor the therapy to you. 

It’s not a quick fix. It’s hard work, sometimes, but it’s worth it.

I work online (or face to face if you're local to me in Lancashire!) and offer a free online meeting or phone call for you to get to know me a little and ask any questions - just drop me a DM.

The first step is the hardest, but you've got this.

Member organisations

BACP
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
