I am a licensed psychotherapist and counselor with a background in Senior Leadership, Mental Health and Social Care. These professions have allowed me to make real connections with people and bear witness to the pain, anxiety, stress and deep hurt we all experience as we journey through life, its also given me the pleasure of seeing clients grow, overcome adversity and thrive in their lives, work and relationships.
My 15 year career in senior leadership got me up close and personal to the challenges we face at work, not only the pressure, stress and potential burnout that comes with trying to perform and develop our careers in high pressure environments but as a woman in the workplace, despite having a successful and fulfilling career I have lived experience of harassment, discrimination, and bullying. All of which I continue to support many clients navigating these same issues in many different work environments.
My time working in different Mental Health and Social Care provisions, gave me a real insight into the challenges people and their families face when they struggle with their mental health.

I have experience working with:
The people I have met along the way have inspired me on this path of continued professional development and it remains a privilege to be trusted with my client’s life stories – each one a true reflection of the human spirit. I look forward to welcoming you and guiding you along your own healing journey.
I have spent time working and travelling in different countries. I lived in China for 2 years and spent 4 years in Southeast Asia travelling and volunteering at women's aid charities. I have always found nature and hiking to be incredibly healing and offer walk and talk therapy and guided walks through the Peak District – to encourage others to find comfort and healing in nature.
