I am....

What would you like to know? I am a female, mixed race, qualified and registered counsellor & psychotherapist, a coach and a supervisor. I am based in beautiful Leicestershire. I have a family, a cat, I garden, and like to keep fit.


My professional expertise comes from experience, training and developing a special interest in the crossover between the professional and personal 'self'. I know  the importance of mentoring, support and supervision when you are in a professional helping role, but also across the lifespan of your career. I know the value of having 'fresh eyes' on your business, particularly at times of growth, transition and beginngs/endings.

I have worked in the helping professions since the late 1990s, including roles in prisons, probation, mental health charities and now for over a decade as a counsellor, psychotherapist and clinical supervisor  and more recently a coach. Over the past few years I have seen a rise in being approached for business mentoring and coaching consultancy and I now offer these specialist services to meet this need, alongside my therapeutic work. 

Having worked for over 20 years helping others, I know, first hand, the impact that work within the helping professions can have. I have seen skilled practitioners falter due to not having their personal and professional issues managed. Having run my own business for over a decade I see how important it is to get professional mentoring, coaching and support for growing, developing and pivoting in your business.

I am passionate about the importance of investing in your self. I believe that all aspects of your 'self' need to be as 'well' as possible in order for you to succeed as a professional and maintain  balance within your personal life. In an ideal world, our professional issues around self-care and personal stressors are separate, but in my experience this is rarely the case.
