Key Workers CounsellingMates in Mind

I’ve witnessed, experienced and engaged with people by supporting them through tough times or even times when we just need a smile and that boost that gives us the twinkle back in our eyes.

I’ve called all of this Zest Wellbeing, to quote someone dear to me who explained that they’ve found the zest in their life once more. I’ve been working with creativity and wellbeing programmes for 15 years.

My approach is relaxed and reassuring and I will keep you updated of progress made and I will always discuss your treatment plan with you before anything begins.
