About this Service

PLEASE NOTE: My counselling waiting list is currently at capacity and I am not taking any new clients at this time. Events – including workshops and classes – are running as normal, and available online. You may also find details of how to access NHS counselling here.

Thank you for visiting my website.

I am a qualified therapeutic counsellor, author and well-being trainer. I aim to help people find what I call their ‘mojo’ (feel-good energy, authenticity or motivation) and get their sparkle back, often during or after a difficult time in their lives. You can find out more about my services here. (Please note, I am not currently offering 1-1 services at this time).

I have a special interest in dreams and sleep, appearing on TV shows like Loose Women and ITV’s This Morning. (You can find out more about this further down the page).

I started my therapeutic career working in bereavement 20 years ago, and still work with grieving people today. I have designed and delivered nationwide training programmes, including promoting the benefits of peer support following the death of a loved one, and tailored grief awareness training to front line personnel including police officers, paramedics, and search and rescue teams.

My book Answers in the Dark: Grief, Sleep and How Dreams Can Help You Heal is available to order on Amazon

My mission is to help improve and enhance the well-being of others through compassionate education and wholehearted, meaningful dialogue. I believe in human potential, helping people manage uncertainty and understand the true nature of resilience, which includes building connection through community. I am a strong advocate of self-compassion, mindful leadership and encourage regular restorative acts of self-care.

Professional Career

I started my therapeutic career, supporting those bereaved by murder and suicide, including attending inquests at coroner’s court. I now mainly work in the community promoting well-being maintenance and recovery through workshops and events. 

Pregnancy Mental Health

In 2004, I established a unique website and peer support group dedicated to Pregnancy Mental Health, following my own experience of ante-natal depression and anxiety.

As a result, I have featured in several popular magazines on this topic, including Pregnancy and Birth and Natural Health magazines, and featured on radio programmes like Radio 4’s Women’s Hour. (You can see a full list of tv and media appearances below). 

Volunteering

I have lived experience of domestic abuse, and for most of my spare time, I raise awareness and discuss prevention of male violence, specifically male violence against women and girls (MVAWG). The National Domestic Abuse Helpline in the UK is 0808 2000 247 or call 101 to report, 999 in an emergency. You may also find these linksuseful.

Qualifications and Training

My qualifications are in Therapeutic Counselling and Delivering Adult Learning. I am also a Mental Health First Aider and authentically trained in Mindfulness. I ensure I engage with continuing professional development throughout the year, so that the learning I provide remains up to date. 

I have also trained with the National Homicide Service, Victim Support, and Women’s Aid. I am accredited to work with victims of crime, including those escaping domestic abuse.
