About Me

My interest in helping people to overcome challenges has always been a part of me. I read books about therapy and personal development as a child and was fascinated by the potential we all have to live our best lives despite challenges we may face.

Training as a Counsellor and Hypnotherapist (amongst other things) was a logical step for me and it helped me to build on my interests and passions. Over the years since establishing my private practice in 2011, I have worked with countless clients on widely varied issues. My goal is always to support you to move past whatever problems you are facing to find the state of peace and wellbeing you are looking for. I love to help you identify your strengths, develop coping mechanisms, learn how to better manage your thoughts and ultimately achieve your goals. I have developed my areas of specialism but ultimately enjoy the variety that exists when working with people.

I have been featured in publications such as The Guardian, Natural Health Magazine, Healthy Magazine and was a regular contributor to the Sheffield Star advice section. I have been interviewed on radio, in the Sheffield Star and feature on podcasts. I was a finalist for a National Business Award (2019) for my work in establishing ‘Sleep Seekers’ to help people overcome insomnia and sleep problems.

Over the years in my private practice I have developed various programmes and masterclasses on common issues which are available online for easy and affordable access.

I run a number of workshops for other therapists and professionals as well as training sessions / speaking in areas such as sleep and stress management for companies such as NatWest and South Yorkshire Police.

I have a programme of workshops and events run on various topics and will often arrange these on topics requested by clients.

I am the author of ‘QuickCalm: Bringing moments of calm to busy lives’ which is full of five minute solutions for taking control of stress.
