About Me

After university I originally had a career in finance, working in sales and trading roles at global investment banks for over a decade. Whilst on a parenting career break I decided to I wanted to create a more nurturing and fulfilling career path. I therefore embarked upon studying and training in different areas of holistic health and wellness. Over more than 15 years I have accumulated extensive training and experience in a wide array of healing modalities, including complementary therapies, Reiki, eating disorder treatment, counselling, psychotherapy and trauma therapy. 

 

I now have a busy private practice where I work with adult clients from all walks of life and who are experiencing a wide range of issues. I work with clients both in-person and online, which enables me to work with people from all over the UK. I practice in a holistic manner, integrating a wide range of skills to address the complete well-being of my clients, encompassing mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual elements.

I have full public liability and indemnity insurance, an up-to-date Enhanced DBS certificate, and I practice under the ethical framework established by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).  This means that I am committed to working with you in a safe and professional way that empowers you to identify what choices you have available to you and what resources you already possess.

Due to the complex nature of the issues that clients bring to therapy, I am committed to continually improving my knowledge and skills through further educational training and CPD.
