"The mind is everything. What you think, you become" Buddha

I started my adult journey studying Psychology. I was searching to understand myself and my society better. However,  back in the 1970s when the focus was very much on proving Psychology to be a science, I did not find the answers I was looking for. I decided then to train and work as a primary teacher. I wanted to help children be the best they could. However I found that there were always a few (usually at the back of the class) who required more attention than others. As a teacher I was unable to provide those individuals with what they needed most.


I helped raise two children of my own, a boy and a girl, who are now adults and functioning pretty well!


I decided to retrain. 

I started my counselling career working in an agency and focusing on abusive relationships.I soon realised that although working with children who have been impacted by abusive relationship is vitally important, they then often return to the system in which they experienced the damage.

I  discovered  through my own therapy and my Gestalt training, there is a vulnerable child within us all. Working with the adults, hopefully, will create a ripple out effect that will reach the children and prevent abusive cycles from repeating. I have hope for humankind and believe we can all work to be the best versions of ourself, not just for ourselves but also for the greater good of those around us.


I specialise in relationship counselling including couples, workplace relationships and family relationships.

I work more long term with individual clients around issues that involve relationship with self,
