About me

Thanks for visiting my site. *Please note* that I am not currently taking on new clients due to my workload with individual clients and therapeutic support groups for people living with Muscular Dystrophy. I will let you know when my books reopen for private one-to-one therapy work. 

Having travelled and lived overseas, I enjoy being with people from a range of different backgrounds. I am creative and artistic by nature, and I love to listen. No matter your race, culture, religion, sexuality, gender identity, dis/ability, nationality, faith / non-faith or social background, you are welcome. 

As well as being a counsellor, I am a wife and mum. I live with a disability - a type of Muscular Dystrophy – something which awakens me, daily, to the reality that life is difficult. I have found, however, that the greatest challenge in life is not always the difficulties themselves but rather how we live with them and how we find meaning and purpose within our circumstances. Over the years I have benefited from counselling and can honestly say that my life is richer as a result.  

My experiences of disability, parenthood, travel, work and life in the modern world have meant that the online world has become second nature to me. I do not hesitate to offer counselling exclusively online because I've found great value in connecting with others in this way.

Since graduating from Lancaster University in 1999, I have spent my working life in a variety of pastoral / welfare settings, both in the UK and overseas. I qualified as a counsellor / therapist in 2008 from LST, an affiliate of Middlesex University, and worked for several years at the University of Winchester, counselling students. From there I went on to work as a Senior Counsellor for an NGO in Sydney, Australia, before returning to the UK in 2015 to set up in private practice, offering counselling online. 


It is always a genuine privilege whenever anyone chooses to embark on the counselling journey with me because the human experience is so varied and rich. I love my job. Being trusted by another is both humbling and inspiring and I hope you will make contact.
