About me

A warm welcome.

  • I believe your life is open before you and there are endless exciting possibilities for you  to discover, if you  are willing to release all that has served its time.

A new understanding of SELF is the foundation from which you can change any area of your life.But before you move forward you must consider where you are at and what obstacles stand in your way.

Counselling clients with trauma , which applies to most people to a greater or lesser extent, has taught me that time does not heal all wounds, it conceals them, and what we try to forget does not forget us. All experiences are stored at a subconscious level and 95% of our lives  run on these automatic programmes. These programmes installed in childhood continue to  influence our daily lives, where they run in opposition to  our conscious desires. and detract from our quality of life. The fallout can be mood disorders such as anxiety and depression, anger, debilitating addictions, self sabotage, low self worth which can lead to difficulties in relationships or health issues due to obsessive thoughts and suppressed emotions.

I create a confidential space where you can destress and  pause to consider your current situation in a kind and accepting environment. Your presenting issue  is the  gateway to understanding root causes  and an opportunity to question your inherited beliefs about yourself  and what you can expect from  life. My aim is to open your eyes to new possibilities  and restore  confidence in your ability to make the right decisions abouyour life NOW. By gaining a fresh perspective you begin to recognise where you are recreating the past and still hooked to an old disempowering agenda. I offer you practical solutions that will help clear a path to the future and take you further than if you were to go alone.

Is it time to prioritise your needs? Continuing to ignore situations wont make them disappear. Underneath layers of conditioning and restrictive belief systems lies the potential to become the happy, healthy person you were born to be. 

I am committed to guiding and supporting you at this crucial time. I have helped hundreds of clients from all walks of life release their self sabotaging behaviours and realise their capacity for a meaningful, happy life. If you feel you have reached a crossroads or feel low in energy and lack motivation, I can help you restore your inner spark and begin a new chapter.

Member organisations

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.

Further information

I fully appreciate that approaching a therapist may feel scary. I want to reassure you that once you have taken that first step you will feel a lot better. A lot of fear tends to subside once you take action.

Remember this is your life and no matter what has happened in the past YOU CAN CHANGE. I suggest a 30 minute session to meet with me and decide whether, I am the right person for you. See if I can offer you what you want.
