I offer a professional service working with you towards your goals to enable you to resolve issues and conflicts, remove limiting beliefs about yourself, create new perspectives and live mindfully, successfully and happily.
I am an experienced psychotherapist and expert in CBT, mindfulness and emotional intelligence.
I have developed my own unique style of integrative therapy to enable you understand yourself better and connect with your inner being. I will work with you to breakthrough barriers so you come into your own power and take ownership of thoughts and feelings that serve you. This in turn can help you gain perspective and give you freedom to communicate and express yourself with newly found confidence. My holistic approach takes into consideration the “whole” of a person’s life – mind, body and soul. This might also include lifestyle, nutrition and belief systems.
Sometimes talking to friends or family is simply not enough. I offer a warm, non-judgemental and personalised service where your wellbeing is my most important priority and having worked with hundreds of clients over the past 15 years to help them find clarity, balance, acceptance, healing, meaning, forgiveness, recognition, freedom from addictions, inner peace and new perceptions of themselves and their place in the world, I now look forward to meeting you or a member of your family.
My career in counselling began in 2000 working firstly for a bereavement service followed by 9 years at a drug and alcohol service as Senior Addiction Counsellor. I have a wealth of experience in psychotherapy, counselling, hypnotherapy, mindfulness training and supervision. I have worked with a number of organisations (including the NHS) and with a range of clients fulfilling their needs so that they can get to the root of their “emotional-self”, which has helped them to find inner peace, happiness and success. I began working in private practice in 2004 and now take referrals from the following:
- Various UK and international health insurance providers such as BUPA, PRU Health and WPA
- EAPS (Employment Assistance Programmes)
- Drug and Alcohol services and rehabs
- Insurance companies for PTSD clients as a result of road traffic accidents
- I supervise managers and counsellors working within CRI, Probation Service, NTA/FDAP drug treatment agencies and Health Service Settings.
- I offer supervision support to counsellors and student counsellors
Author of The Mood Cards
In 2015, I created The Moods Cards for self-development, emotional intelligence and healing. The 42 different cards are based on the premise that psychology does not have to be complicated. THE MOOD CARDS are simple to use and offer a fun and accessible way to help you identify and explore your moods and emotions. They are suitable for professionals, clients and self-help individuals to help people understand the world through their own moods and feelings. The cards are now being sold world-wide, in 8 countries and 3 different languages.
I regularly run workshops and retreats on emotional intelligence and self-development across the UK in both private and corporate settings.
