I help women to FEEL better – so they can BE, DO and HAVE better!
I can help you if you’re either…
- Overwhelmed, worried, anxious, depressed, 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 yourself – the way you look, your eating or drinking habits, how you behave… and perhaps feeling deep down that somehow you aren’t ‘good enough’
- 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 or 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)
- Finally realising that you need to ‘sort yourself out’ first – in the ways you think, feel and behave – before your home and work life can become more balanced, happier and calmer.
I know all of these from my own personal experiences (for decades!) and it was my own struggle that got me on the path to becoming a psychotherapist (qualified to Masters Degree in 2002) – so that I could help other women not to have to keep battling on alone, and to guide and show them the best way forwards.
In my own experience, over four years of therapy wasn’t anywhere near as effective as the later work I did around my wounded ‘Inner Child’.
These ‘symptoms’ above are all signs of a distressed ‘Inner Child’ – that part of your sub-conscious mind that has been conditioned by your early experiences, thoughts and feelings about yourself.
This part of your psyche really needs some help to feel stronger, more courageous, authentic and empowered – whether at home, at work or in any of your relationships.
As your therapeutic self-development *mentor I offer you much more depth than coaching can, and much more focus that counselling therapy or psychotherapy.
I work with the underlying causes of your difficulties – and not just the effects and consequences – and this brings 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 )

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.
