About me

I am an Emotional Therapeutic Counsellor and Wellbeing Coach and work with individuals, couples, parents, families and young people. I provide one to one counselling and coaching, and group coaching.

I have worked as a health professional for over 20 years. I originally trained as a paediatric nurse at Great Ormond Street Hospital, since then I have worked as a children’s nurse, a school nurse and a health visitor. In all roles, I most enjoyed supporting emotional wellbeing and this led me to train as a counsellor and coach.

As well as running my own private practice, I have worked as an emotional wellbeing and parenting practitioner in a Children’s Centre in Gloucester, and more recently as a student counsellor at Gloucestershire College.

I am passionate about emotional wellbeing and I  facilitate the development of others within the field, fulfilling the roles of both mentor for students training with the Foundation for Emotional Therapeutic Counselling and as supervisor for qualified practitioners.

I work from both Gloucester and Cheltenham;

Gloucester base:  Gloucester Natural Therapies Clinic, Kingsholm Road, Gloucester.

Cheltenham base: Talking Therapies South West, 5 Regent Street, Cheltenham.

I also run a private practice from home which enables me to offer flexibility with appointment times.

Importantly, I am adequately qualified, insured and registered with the appropriate governing bodies:
