Get to Know Me
Helping You Live Your Best Life !
I am passionate about helping my clients break through the obstacles that seem to be holding them back in life. Life's too short to be unhappy, unsure, or unfulfilled. I am here to help you achieve a more positive outlook on life, and provide you with some of the tools necessary to help get you there.
I aim to provide a really client centred service, meaning I am able to adapt my Counselling style to suit your needs. This can include a combination of talking therapy, art therapy, mindfulness and imagery work, whatever you feel the most comfortable with. I am able to provide face to face, telephone or video counselling. As I am passionate about the the effect of nature on our mental wellbeing, I also offer a Walk and Talk service for those local to the Cheltenham area.
I am a single Mum to two beautiful girls and I have been both a parent, a carer to my elderly Mum and a career women. I have supported those with mental health
issues, parenting concerns, relationship worries and teenage angst. But most of all - I am human, and as a human being, what I value most is 'connection', finding that person you connect with makes all the difference to your counselling journey. Take the first step and give me a call or message me, I look forward to hearing from you.
My background is working with adults, parents and families in schools and family centres around Gloucestershire. I am a qualified adult education teacher and family learning practitioner.

I embarked on my counselling training 4 years ago and completed my placement with Listening Post in Cheltenham where I still work as a qualified counsellor. After completing my Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling I worked with 'Teens in Crisis' for 6 months and completed my Level 5 Children and Young People Counselling qualification. I now run a small practice as well as provide counselling and assessing for Listening Post Cheltenham. I am a full member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists BACP).
