A Bit About Me
I started my journey as a ‘therapist’ nearly thirty years ago when
I attended an evening counselling training course. I was the youngest
in the class and was almost discouraged to join, as the facilitator
believed that it is best to have some life experience when practising
in a caring profession. And of course he was totally right. Since
then I have been on a journey personally and professionally and
I have learned a great deal on my travels. My focus has always been
on developing myself, and helping others to do the same.
Forever on a quest for learning and to acquire new skills, I have trained as a counsellor, lecturer, homeopath, life coach, couples counsellor, doula, Reiki healer and nutrition adviser. I have also studied Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), Transactional Analysis (TA) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and I graduated from my 3 year post-graduate training with world leader Jeremy Sherr in April 2013.
Part of my evolving involved a two and a half year period researching, writing and publishing a book, Looking Back Moving Forward, Looking Back Moving Forward, a compilation of conversations I had with thirty four of the most experienced and respected homeopaths and teachers of homeopathy in this country.

I have specific areas of focus, which I have separated on to individual pages on this site. Please click on the sunflowers above to navigate. One of my more recent areas of focus, not specifically mentioned in the sunflowers, is young people’s mental health and in particular addictive processes and addictive behaviour.
