I am a mum of three and a Psychotherapist living in Surrey. I am a warm communicator with a passion for taking therapy out of the therapy room.
Whether I’m sitting with a client in my living room, talking as a guest on a podcast, or addressing an audience in a workshop setting, my desire is to empower, encourage and equip people. My hope is that through my words, spoken or written, they will experience light-bulb moments, learn about themselves and be able to find more freedom and enjoyment in life.
I run regular ‘Mental Health’ lives on Instagram, where we discuss these topics in the light of my professional and personal experience. These can be attended by up to 3,000 people per session. I am often open, sharing my own story in the hopes that others will be inspired to do so too. Psycho-education is a big passion of mine as I believe that knowing yourself and understanding your own processes is a huge part of enabling change.
I write articles and often contribute to press as a professional voice. I have written or contributed to publications such as:
- Parentfolk Magazine
- The Sun Fabulous
- Boots Magazine
- Take a Break
- Mother & Baby
I have written a book called Mind over Mother, and have many more in my head to write in the future!
