You want to say goodbye to anxiety, worry and low self-esteem.

You deserve to feel empowered, have happier relationships, more confidence and success.

You want to go beyond understanding 'why' you have certain issues in your life - you also want effective tools and strategies to make real and lasting changes. 

You've come to the right place

I've been helping people transform their lives for over 25 years and I LOVE what I do.

Like many people, I had a difficult start in life, which caused me to have challenges with relationships, low confidence and anxiety.

I kept repeating the same unhelpful patterns of behaviour because I was living a life dictated by limiting beliefs, picked up many years before in my childhood.

But I always sensed there was more to life. Something was driving me towards a happier experience.

I was in my twenties, a single parent, (with a gorgeous son) but with no real prospects for a career, when I decided to take a night class in psychology. The teacher said to me:

'You know you're really good at this. 

Have you ever thought about taking a degree?'

That lady literally changed my life - with that one comment - in that one single moment in time.

It was the beginning of my journey to becoming a therapist....

...and 27 years later I managed to track her down and thank her - it was the best feeling!

So back then I completed my degree at one of the top universities in the UK, the University of Sussex -  and in time I took several post-graduate qualifications.  I also gained a great deal of experience through counselling for a number of charities and organisations.

I’ve been in private practice now for many years, and I LOVE what I do! It gives me so much pleasure to help people become unstuck from the limiting ideas and self-beliefs that have been holding them back.

My Mission

Imagine a world where everyone lived from a place of love and understanding, instead of fear and apprehension.

Where people were able to speak up and be their own authentic self without dread of being judged or criticised.

Where everyone could ask for their needs to be met without worrying about causing conflict or being rejected.

And imagine in this world people looked at the bigger picture and sought out win-win outcomes instead of feeling disempowered and hurt.

Leaders of nations would communicate on a confident and adult level, without fear, game playing or insecurity.

There would be less world conflict. There would be less confusion. There would be less stress, insecurity and suffering.

There would be more peace. There would be more understanding. There would be more health, calm and stability.

What an amazing world this could be!

You can be part of this mission to create a happier and more secure world.  All you need to do is work on your own personal development and the rest will take care of itself.

In over 25 years helping clients, I've seen how when people set better boundaries, and learn to communicate more clearly and confidently, everyone around them is encouraged to do the same. This gets passed from person to person, and on down through the generations.

Great relationships start with great connection - with yourself and with others. Do this and you’ll make good choices and decisions.

You’ll respond to situations well. You’ll be heard and respected. You’ll feel happy and empowered.

And as you do so you’ll pass this on and you’ll contribute to our entire world being a better, happier place.

Are you ready?   Let's go!
