I firmly believe that we all need some professional support to assist us at times in the busy stressful lives that we lead to learn skills and tools that can support our future growth and development. I work with a mind/body approach as I do not believe that we can fully heal unless we attend t the information or trauma that we hold in our body.

I hold a Degree in Counselling from Vision College – Person Centred Approach. I have also integrated Compassion Therapy and Attachment focused Therapy. Experience of Postnatal Distress with a lack of support and resources helps me to understand how women are often isolated, under-supported and misinformed during vulnerable times. My hope it to help support women and families in creating happy and fulfilling lives.
