I’m a  counsellor, psychotherapist, life coach, speaker, author and mum.

I’ve played very many different roles in my life and one thread is recurrent – empowering people, helping people gain new perspectives, see new opportunities, overcome barriers,  gain new skills, find new opportunities… one way or another, I tend to support people at various stages of their life journeys…

Today, I specialise in skillfully working with people to get unstuck.

If you feel stuck – in any area of your life – I can work with you to get unstuck.

If you feel lost and confused, I can walk with you to find your way.

If you have lost your voice and want it back, I can work with you to find it, and use it, if that’s your desire.

This has been my personal journey… going from ‘yuck  and stuck’ to growing in my fabulous freedom.    I have not travelled it all by myself.  I have invested in professional support along the way and will continue to do so as an important part of my personal self-care and growth package.

In my work, I offer a non-judgmental relationship that is based on trust, respect and acceptance.  For more on why I do what I do, see here.

My blogs are my reflections on life’s issues. I hope you find some insight, some hope, some kinship, some resonance from you what read. Please feel free to make a contribution.

And know that you do not have to walk this path alone…  that it’s okay to reach out for and to receive support and companionship along the way…  If you would like to find out how I can support you, then contact me here.

I have also partnered with Centre for Better Health,  a community-based charity that supports wellbeing and recovery from mental ill-health.

I volunteer as a guide at Crossroads Retreats, a charity that supports individuals to (re)discover their sense of direction and/or identity when at a crossroads.
