About me

For Individuals: 

​I'm your mojo-returner! I'm an EMCC Accredited Senior Coach Practitioner, Accredited Coach Supervisor, and BACP Accredited Therapist, with over a decade, and thousands of hours of experience, in supporting extraordinary people ⭐️ just like you ⭐️ to make significant changes in their lives.

Ready to crush your goals? DM me for transformative coaching and therapeutic consultancy for creative entrepreneurs and senior executives. More than just coaching, this flexes and shifts with YOUR needs. We co-create a dynamic, transformational space, in which you will experience profound personal and professional change. I bring coaching expertise with over a decade of psychotherapeutic experience - meaning we will work at depth and achieve measurable results in our coaching sessions. I work well with leaders, founders, C-Suite, solopreneurs, and entrepreneurs. In my private practice many of my clients are neurodiverse -I support people to own and acknowledge their strengths, and achieve meaningful goals.

For Luxury Brands: 

My company, C-Sage, presents an exclusive, bespoke approach aimed at guiding individuals through the emotional aftermath of critical incidents, aiming to achieve seamless continuity of service post-incident. Drawing inspiration from emergency services methodologies, and informed by over a decade of work as a therapist and coach, CISM serves as a beacon of support, now extended to the discerning clientele and teams of the luxury lifestyle sector.

A Critical Incident signifies any occurrence that jeopardises the physical or emotional comfort or safety of your clientele or staff. Critical Incident Stress Management provides comprehensive support following such occurrences. From unexpected tragedies to unforeseen challenges, such as personal crises or emergencies, our tailored C-Sage Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM) and coaching services offer invaluable assistance.

At C-Sage, we provide CISM support services crafted specifically to meet the unique demands of luxury brands, with confidentiality and discretion being paramount. Our team of seasoned specialists is primed to deliver crisis intervention and post-incident support, safeguarding the well-being of your esteemed clientele and teams, and offering expert signposting towards additional resources, as necessary. DM me for more information.


I offer Coaching Supervision to individuals and groups. Later this year there will be a new intake for ND Fusion - a coaching supervision programme for coaches working with neurodiversity. DM me for more information.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.

Accredited register membership
