I am a Psychotherapist and Counsellor and a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). Having started out in a different career, I retrained after a lightbulb moment in which I realised my vocation was to help others find inner happiness and contentment.

I founded The Listening Helper Counselling Service http://thelisteninghelper.co.uk in 2011, initially working part time while my daughter was young and then creating a wider client base as family life allowed.  I work with individuals, couples and teenagers to increase self-belief and happiness, as well as helping corporate brands boost staff wellbeing, reduce stress in the workplace and lower sickness absence rates.

I combine a variety of approaches, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), person-centred and psychodynamic, to name a few, and integrate them into a single approach.  I am also a media spokeswoman, contributing to BBC Radio and a range of leading health and wellbeing magazines and influential blogs.
