About me and my therapy practice

I am so passionate about helping people with work life balance to ensure you are able to find clarity, routine and emotional regulation. I work in an integrated way and am passionate about helping people to make positive shift. I am trained in EMDR, CBT, DBT, REBT, NLP, Life Coaching, Play Therapy, Solution Focused Brief Therapy and many other approaches.

I set up my company in 2008 and have always worked employed alongside. I have worked within the council for 9 years under children and families and 5 years in the NHS mental health organisations. I have gradually increased self employed and reduced employed work and I am leaving the NHS in July as I am pursuing my passion and purpose! 

I have 2 children a 5 year old and a 2 year old. When I returned from maternity leave in 2019 I was planning on rebranding the business and launching April 2020. Well I obviously wasn't aware of the changes that would happen... but I have been on an amazing growth journey both personally and professionally. Like a lot of mums I struggled with regaining my identity after having my children and getting 'me back.' I spent the first lockdown reclaiming my identity and the rest of the year in a massive period of growth for my business.  

Coming online has opened my eyes to a whole new way of working and I am super excited to be sharing this with you. I am using an app portal for my programs, working online as well as face to face and I am about to launch my workplace well-being strategy 'Inspire Teams.' I have grown my social media platforms from nothing and have a facebook group where I offer free support (get in there if you want to find out more about me!)

I am now an executive contributor to Brainz Magazine and have written articles for many well known publications such as GQ. I am also part of the Corporate WellBeing Expo which is supporting Businesses as part of the Business Revival Conference.

Practice description

This last year has been tough right? We have had to adapt like never before! Now that life in the UK is slowly finding its flow again many people are finding themselves at a crossroads. Do I want to go back to a stressful office environment? Do I want to work long hours? Do I want to go back out in the world again?

Many Companies are adapting the way they are working too and office environments are adapting to a new normal. I've heard a lot about the 60/40% split for employees and I think everyone is reflecting on the year we have just had!

So how can I help? I am an integrated therapist and I offer bespoke therapy and coaching packages based on need. I can work with you to support:

Work life balance,

Lifestyle

Routine

Anxiety

Trauma (EMDR trained)

Stress

Imposter Syndrome

Family support- parenting and child/ family therapy

Sleep (CBTi trained)

I am offering 1:1 sessions, I run group programs and I am getting ready to launch my Inspire Teams Membership to support businesses around Well-Being Strategy.

Whether you want some therapy sessions around something specific, coaching around future plans or organisational support I am here to help you every step of the way!

When we have a first session I will offer either face to face or online sessions. Your sessions will vary:

First sessions are usually the 'boring paperwork' bit! getting everything I need and undertaking a thorough assessment helps me to help you in the best way possible! I am hoping to bring much of this online in the coming months watch this space!!

The first session is a space to get to know each other.

Practice description

Supervision is about having a safe space to creatively challenge, explore, acknowledge and support supervisees which will enhance professional development and confidence. Supervision should be fun, useful and empowering to increase insight, self-reflection and to find solutions.

I trained as a Creative Clinical Supervisor in 2015 and Practice Educator in 2017. I love supporting other professionals to explore formulations, unpick complex cases and navigate different pathways within the therapeutic journey. 

I support individuals 1:1 and also companies in a group supervision format. I have supported school senior leadership teams in particular to support students and staff.

My first session

First sessions are usually the 'boring paperwork' bit! getting everything I need and undertaking a thorough assessment helps me to help you in the best way possible! I am hoping to bring much of this online in the coming months watch this space!!

The first session is a space to get to know each other. I will be wanting to find out about you, your experience, background client group and how you work. What you have found useful about supervision and what you have struggled with. 

You get the chance to work out if we are the right match before you commit.
