I worked as a holistic therapist for 20 years and ran my own business offering complementary and alternative therapies such as aromatherapy, reflexology, reiki, along with running wellbeing workshops and evening classes.  During this time I became very interested in the mind, body, spirit connection and continued my own personal journey by studying counselling, coaching and mentoring.

Today in my private practice I use an integrative approach with clients, which means that I utilise all of my experience and knowledge to help them, however I base this on a person centred approach.

I have been working as a fully qualified counsellor and have been a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors & Psychotherapists (BACP) since 2009 and offer individual counselling and life coaching sessions, as well as personal development workshops either in groups or in 1:1’s.

I have continued my own personal development and have undertaken further study in more specialised areas.  I am also able to offer Couples Counselling and Counselling Supervision.

I am a fully registered Bach Practitioner (BFRP) since 2017 and love working with the flower essences.

As a Registered member of the BACP & Senior Accredited member of the NCPS, I work to their code of ethical practice.   I am committed to continuing my professional development and regularly attend workshops and training courses to enhance and refresh my skills and knowledge.
