About me

How I Can Help

Not living your optimum life? Struggling to breakthrough some challenge that is holding you back?

We find ourselves swinging back and forth between different emotional states, seeking desperately for some sort of balance and peace of mind, only to find ourselves in the throes of the next challenge or conflict.

I can help you to balance your perceptions, neutralise emotional charges, embrace and transcend the perceived ‘good and bad’ to tap into a state of grace, joy, gratitude and creativity; a place of inspiration in which you will intuitively know which step to take, what decision to make to reconcile some aspect of yourself or your relationships.

I provide a safe and confidential space for you to be vulnerable and ok with who you are; to explore what the road blocks are that you perceive are holding you back, where you feel stuck and unsure of what the next step should be.  I help you to see what it is you don’t yet see: such as the opportunities in the challenges, the relief in the grief and the peace in the war. I can help you find meaning in your life when you may feel you have none.

I also offer a unique way of working with grief using the Demartini Method that provides insight into your loss.

You will come to see what you perceived was in your way was actually helping you on the way.

When you change your inner world, you will observe your outer world changing effortlessly to reflect the person you have become.

About Me

I am a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and have over 12 years of experience of working with a diversity of clients and issues. I am also trained in the application of universal laws and as a Demartini Method Facilitator. The Demartini Method provides insight by balancing our perceptions and emotions, thus enabling us to transcend them to achieve a state of joy, equanimity, creativity and gratitude. It helps us to see what we don't see, the very core of our subconscious which is what drives they way we think and what we do 95% of the time.

I also listen to and hear the wholeness of your being which gives me an intuitive sense of who you are and what drives you. Perhaps more importantly I can help as someone who also has a story but gives myself permission to live my truth and to walk as who I am with as much authenticity and courage as I can.

My original career was in law and chartered accountancy and I worked in the corporate industry for over 15 years whilst pursuing my passion of counselling and consulting. Having knowledge of this industry I am also able to help managers and leaders improve their performance and the performance of their team by achieving a healthier more balanced mindset; one that inspires creativity.

I have been fortunate to have studied and worked closely with leaders in both the corporate and spiritual worlds through my career, and my love for the mystical. I have received many profound teachings and instructions from them that have created in me an alchemy of different worlds and experiences distilled to infuse me with more trust with each step, a quiet curiosity to learn, a silent knowingness and a joy in sharing what I have received.

Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
