I am a psychologist, psychotherapist, childhood recovery coach, therapeutic mentor and consultant
I specialise in recovery from childhood abuse, trauma, emotional neglect and Post Childhood Trauma Stress Disorder…
helping you to heal and re-parent your wounded inner child
I can help you if you’re a woman who is …
- Overwhelmed, worried, upset, stuck or confused about something – whether in your personal, home or working life
- Tired of wearing a mask – feeling like a fake and constantly trying to please other people, whilst neglecting your own feelings and needs
- Feeling unhappy – with the way you look, your poor state of health, your eating or drinking habits, your self-esteem and how you behave
- Struggling with your relationships – with your partner, friends, family, or with work/business colleagues. Maybe you’re having difficulty finding or keeping a loving relationship
- Worried that your past, perhaps your childhood abuse, trauma or emotional neglect, is making you repeat old patterns and get the same bad results – attracting the wrong people and situations into your life
- Concerned about what conditioning and behaviours you’ve picked up from your parents – that you’re now passing on to your own child(ren)
- Fed up with still being ‘tripped up’ by your old issues with your mother or father – and you want to understand, heal and recover from your Toxic Parent(s)
- Aware that your ‘inner child’ is struggling – and you want to heal her distress, change her negative thinking, and heal her emotional wounds. You are ready to ‘re-parent your inner child‘ and finally make peace with the past
If you want to stop the past from interfering with your future, have more balance and control in your life, feel calmer and happier, create good boundaries, be a better parent, have more harmonious and respectful relationships, be more succesful in your work or business –
then let’s talk about how we can work together to make this transformation happen for you ASAP!

I offer two HALF-PRICED concessionary client places (£50 an hour) – for two clients with reduced finances who genuinely can’t afford my standard fees. Please ask about availability.

Having recovered from childhood abuse and trauma myself, I now can be your childhood recovery coach and therapeutic self-development *mentor.
I offer you much more understanding, empathy and depth than coaching, and much more focus than counselling therapy or psychotherapy.
I work with the underlying causes of your difficulties – and not just the effects and consequences – to bring you deep and lasting change.
(A *mentor is defined as:- an experienced, wise and trusted advisor, counsellor or teacher giving help and advice over a period of time to someone less experienced)
“Amazing lady! I can’t put into words how much she’s helped me, go to her and you’ll leave stronger, happier and far more capable. She can literally turn your mental health around!” (Kirsty P)
“I had already tried several ways to get help for my binge eating, bad body image, self-doubt and self-criticism before I found you.Thank you for working with me to help me connect with and heal the relationship with my inner child. I found our sessions supportive, useful, and a very direct way to get to the core issue of things that have been holding me back. Thank you for tailoring the sessions to meet my exact needs and your expertise and warm manner made it enjoyable too! “(Alice F)

You can find out more about me here
With 20 years of experience as a psychotherapist (Masters Degree) working with a very wide range of people and problems I’ve condensed what I’ve learnt over the years into my own new and very effective methods to improve psychological, emotional and physical well-being.
I specialise in helping women to heal and transcend their emotional wounds, re-cover from a troubled childhood and toxic parents. learn how to re-parent their inner child and make peace with their past.
This enables and empowers them to become better people, parents, partners and professionals… and all round happier calmer people.
I am particularly interested in the effects of Adverse Childhood Experiences and childhood trauma – and how these can be the deep-seated reasons for the problems in our adult lives.
If this resonates with you then I’ve created some free e-books, blogs, articles and videos on the FREE RESOURCES page of this website – so that you too can enjoy peace of mind and a brighter future.
I can help you find out ‘How To Tell If You Need To Sort Yourself Out’ – or those parts that haven’t been working well for you. You can find out just how much ‘sorting out’ you personally have to do by downloading my free questionnaire (see top right in the header bar to get your free copy).
You can learn how to *S.E.L.E.C.T.Your Life (c)
* S.E.L.E.C.T. Your Life is my process of helping you get to where you want to be and to have the life you want and deserve – the life of your own making and not just the one that’s been handed down to you.
Learning New Skills
Emotional Intelligence & Balance
Control & Clarity
Change is always possible when you follow the right steps… let me guide you to take those steps.
- If you are suffering with suicidal thoughts, serious self-harm, a personality disorder, or chronic mental health problems, then the emotional containment of one-to-one psychotherapy will be better suited to your needs than online self-help material.
