My focus has always been on people.
My working life has given me extensive and varied experience in recruitment, marketing, sales training, general management and psychometric profiling. After re-training to Masters Level in Counselling and Psychotherapy, I have an established and successful practice working with individuals and couples on a therapeutic basis for a wide range of mental health and relationship issues and as a Family Mediator to resolve separation and divorce disputes. I also offer short term solution focussed counselling on behalf of a national EAP provider and Mental Health Assessments in the workplace on behalf of a national Occupational Health provider.
I am passionate about reducing the stigma of mental health issues, recognising the signs and helping people to help themselves to improve their mental wellbeing. National resources are currently strained and inadequate to provide sufficent and timely treatment that is accessible to all. I support employers offering assistance to their employees by utilising all my knowledge and experience to support you to support them via funded short-term counselling and interactive Mental Health workshops. Both are an external resource to help you support and manage employee mental wellbeing, improve staff morale, reduce absenteeism and meet business objectives.
I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and Family Mediators Association (FMA), am fully insured and compliant with General Data Protection Regulations.
