About me and my therapy practice

I am a UK-based Integrative Creative Counsellor, Accredited Therapeutic NLP Life & Leadership Coach, Mindfulness Teacher and Compassion Focused Facilitator. I am passionate about helping you to heal from trauma, anxiety, burn-out, Imposter Syndrome & lack of self-belief so that you can start to feel your most confident, connected, energetic & vibrant self.  I believe that we are all creative problem solvers and that you have the wisdom and knowledge within you to know what is best for you and how to heal from your past experiences. Even though you have the resources within you, sometimes life can feel overwhelming and challenging and we might need someone to talk to, to explore the parts of our life that we find too difficult to explore alone and to help us to reconnect with our personal power to aid self-healing and grow self-belief. Over the years, I have developed many skills which have enabled me to confidently, compassionately and creatively support hundreds of clients to move from surviving to thriving and I would love to have the opportunity to work with you too!

Im a published author, speaker and run online group coaching programs and courses as well as offering one to one coaching and therapy support. Although I am trained to offer you core counselling skills from a person-centred, CBT and psychodynamic approach, I am additionally trained in further creative and spiritual approaches like NLP, Mindfulness, Creative Visualisation and Hypnotherapy Models. 

As a Creative & Integrative Counsellor & Coach, I offer creative interventions like;

Working with art and clay

Journaling and creative writing

Mindfulness, grounding and meditations

Creative empowering visualisations and affirmations

NLP Life Coaching including Creative Hypnotherapy techniques

I approach counselling and coaching in which ever way suits you best and will help you to thrive! 

Practice description

I am based in Cheshire, near to Cheshire Oaks and straight off the M53, however my therapy hub is not open to the public at the moment. During these tricky times due to COVID-19, I only offer online, telephone and virtual counselling sessions which means you can access support from the comfort of your own home or safe place. I have been supporting clients globally in this way for more than 4 years and am confident in how to support you in this way.

Before I opened my private practice I worked within the NHS as an Integrative Counsellor in GP surgeries and I also worked with Rape Crisis supporting survivors of childhood abuse and sexual violence. I went on to support young autistic clients and their families and then moved into work supporting leaders, parents, carers and business owners who were struggling with burn out, vicarious trauma, anxiety and lack of confidence.

I am also the founder and director for Creative Counsellors and Confident Hearts, two organisations dedicated to training counsellors and coaches globally on how to offer a more creative approach within their work to support others. I have now supported just over 11500 counsellors and coaches from 99 countries and host many online training and personal development sessions, including facilitating mental health sessions for Facebook Headquarters. I believe in the power of creativity as a healer.

My first session

Before we start working together I invite you to contact me for a free clarity call where we can explore how I can support you online. We will talk about what support you may be looking for and create a plan going forward for how we will meet and when. Our agreement will be crystal clear and will include any costs involved and additional resources or materials that you may choose to add some creativity to your self-development and healing. 

I would love to talk to you and see whether we would be a good fit to work together and if we decide that my approach isn't quite right then I can support you to find someone who can help.
