Counsellor & Psychotherapist

As a BACP qualified counsellor, my passion is to provide support to enhance people’s mental health. I have 10 years’ experience in counselling work, have worked with a significant range of clients, and gained counselling qualifications from three Universities. My experience includes voluntary work at two different charities over 5 years, paid work with Better Help, and my own private counselling practice.

I also have over 25 years of experience as a highly qualified secondary  teacher and educational leader, with extensive experience in mentoring and training others. This experience  enables me to work collaboratively to bring out the potential of others and help them develop new insight. 


My extensive background in teaching enables me to support youngsters with diverse anxiety and self-esteem issues. My younger clients see me as someone who creates a strong rapport with them and for nurturing, in a deeply empathic way, their self-belief to enable them to realise their potential. I provide early intervention strategies and tools to enhance their coping strategies.


My clients and counselling peers - such as peers on my Supervision course  - describe me as someone who is a good listener, curious, warm, wise and as having a ‘good energy’. I ask effective questions, enable space for reflection and explain concepts well.


Following recent training in counselling supervision, I am now also supporting supervisees. I will open up further opprtunities to provide supervision when new spaces become available.

My greatest joy in life is seeing my individual client’s lives transform for the better.  I look forward to an opportunity to help empower you to find peace and achieve your aspirations.
