ABOUT ME

My interest in Psychology began back in 1996 where I studied Applied Psychology as part of my Law and Business Degree. I then worked in many roles over the years which focused on the development, progress, coaching, mentoring, training and nurturing of my employees and colleagues paying particular attention to their mental health and wellbeing realising that these two significant factors played a very important part in the path each individual would embark on. All the companies I worked with had an ‘Investors in People’ Programme for which I championed and helped the companies excel in.

Working in the corporate and charity sectors, as well as drawing on my own personal experiences, gave me in-depth understanding of workplace differences and challenges faced by those living life juggling career pressures, personal life struggles and family commitments amongst other things. It became abundantly clear to me that investment in one’s own mental and physical wellbeing is investment for positive life changes and a happy more content existence. This was the catalyst for me to further my passion in mental health and dedicate myself to helping others achieve positive change and better wellbeing.

Being able to witness first-hand how simply giving people time to express themselves, notice their abilities, support them through their challenges, listen to them, encourage them to see their full potential and believe in them, highlighted to me that helping people through psychotherapy and counselling can have a profound impact on an individuals well-being.

How I can help you

I can offer you a safe and confidential space to explore the things that you might feel are troubling you. Sometimes it is hard to have your voice heard, to find someone to give you the time you need to express yourself, to be able to truly say what is on your mind without fear of how someone else might judge your thoughts. I can offer you a chance to be yourself, to have the space to think, to find clarity, to explore your emotions, to find courage to change, to become hopeful again– a chance to find ‘You’.
