Why you might be looking for help:
• You feel stuck with an issue in your life which you have tried to cope with by yourself, but you are finding it harder to live with and want help in changing this
• You feel like you want more from life but have noticed that you have built up negative patterns or cycles in your life which result in you missing out on opportunities which would help give you a more fulfilling and meaningful life.
• You feel that you are in some way stuck in the past, where experiences you had as a child or teenager continue to affect you and determine your life today.

What I will give you as a therapist:
• HONESTY: I believe in taking a direct approach. No one is perfect and we can all fall into negative habits of behaviour or self-sabotage opportunities for growth. Essential to any therapeutic relationship is knowing that you can trust your therapist to not only be there for you when you are struggling but also to be honest and direct with you to help you challenge yourself and get more of what you want in life.
• CONSISTENCY: Many of us have experienced home environments or relationships in life where we haven’t been able to rely on those around us or have been let down. I am committed to giving you a new experience of a relationship with someone who is reliable and consistent.
• CARE: I decided to work in this field in large part due to my own mental health experiences. These experiences and my own journey of therapy and personal development are what help me to stand apart from other practitioners. I am deeply passionate about helping others create real change in their lives. I do what I do because I truly care and my own personal experiences help to inform my understanding and attune to what you need.

About me:
I am a fully qualified integrative counsellor, a registered member with the BACP and NCS. Over a year ago now, I decided to follow my own dreams and live full time in my van, travelling across the UK and Europe, working remotely.
Aside from my private work, I am employed as a counsellor with Kooth, The Mix and Anxiety UK. I have over 8 years’ experience working in the field of mental health and social care.
In addition to this, over the last year I have developed my own business ‘Mind the Path’ – which offers holistic therapeutic retreats across the UK.
