Due to the COVID pandemic I have been working mostly online. However as the world opens up I am also offering Face to Face sessions in Uckfield & London.
I am a counsellor, coach and wellbeing consultant and am a member of the International Stress Management Association and the Federation of Drug and Alcohol Practitioners. I am an addictions and eating disorder specialist as well as working with other issues such as anxiety, depression, self harm, self esteem, loneliness and other disorders. I offer a range of services from 1:1 counselling/coaching , group counselling/coaching and workshops. I trained at Richmond College and the National Centre for Eating Disorders and am strongly informed by 12 step philosophy. My focus is helping clients to look after their mental, physical, spiritual and emotional health, to find meaning and to thrive in life.
In a corporate setting I work with leaders and teams alike helping organisations develop a culture of wellbeing, vulnerability, productivity, creativity and innovation.
Since 2017 I have drawn on my own personal experience and training to support those I work with. My own journey through life has brought me to this point where I am able to use my life experience to help others. I have a holistic view of mental health and wellbeing. I work collaboratively with my clients using both counselling and coaching skills to help promote positive, lasting change.
I am a mental health and wellbeing campaigner, am an advocate for mental fitness and living a balanced life. If you or someone you know is struggling with poor mental health, wellbeing or addiction issues please don’t hesitate to get in reach out.
