With a career covering more than 25 years in the fields of wellbeing and mental health I am dedicated to and experienced with supporting people achieve a positive sense of emotional wellbeing, purpose and direction.

For the past 15 years I have been working as a counsellor, mindfulness teacher, coach and trainer. I offer a depth of experience from working with private individuals, families, students and teachers, volunteers and employees, management personnel, and entrepreneurs, to name a few.

I am experienced with working one-to-one and with facilitating groups and training sessions. I also specialise in working with children and young people, and people living with cancer, or other chronic health conditions. I am a partnership therapist for the Living Tree and Stepping Out, for whom I facilitate monthly therapeutic groups.

Previously, I established and ran a counselling service in a Bristol secondary school for almost 4 years, in conjunction with being the safeguarding lead. I have supervised Macmillan volunteers; been a trainer with Voscur’s Training and Equalities Team; a counsellor for Mosaic and Relate, Dorset; and I have worked with 2 local authority Children’s Services departments.

Alongside my private practice I partner with several local organisations providing wellbeing support and assistance for their staff and/or service users.

I have been practising mindfulness, meditation and yoga for several years and many beneficial and foundational aspects of these practices inform some of my work with clients.

I am committed to and passionate about enabling people achieve their potential and develop greater understanding of the relationship they have with themselves, with others, and with the world around them.


Professional Training

I am professionally qualified with an Advanced Diploma in Integrative Counselling, a Post Qualifying Diploma in Counselling Children and Adolescents, and a Mindfulness Teacher training. My professional counselling training is fully accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), with whom I am a fully Registered Member.

I hold an Enhanced DBS Certificate, and I work in conjunction with the BACP Ethical Framework and Good Practice Guidelines. All my therapeutic work is clinically supervised, and I am currently working to gain Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) teacher status.

Over the years I have attended many other courses, and I continue to attend professional training sessions as a commitment to furthering my expertise and keeping appropriately informed about relevant new and emerging research.

In addition to my professional qualifications I ensure that I receive regular updates to child protection and safeguarding legislation.
