Passionate about normalising and humanising mental ill health and creating an environment which is accepting and non-judgemental.
I am an experienced humanistic counsellor with a person-centred approach. I am passionate about the transformative power of counselling and providing the right conditions to enable others fulfil their potential. I have experience counselling on a one to one basis with both private clients and with a local counselling charity.
My career, before I began my counselling journey, was in the construction industry managing site teams. After experiencing my own mental health issues and seeking counselling, I completed a degree in Person Centred Counselling at the University of Sunderland.
Whilst working in the corporate sector, I realised that mental wellbeing was an area that was hugely overlooked. I decided to combine my corporate and mental health knowledge and now offer Mental Health Training courses to organisations in the North East. I am a qualified MHFA England Instructor Member.
I am passionate about reducing stigma and creating opportunities to improve mental wellbeing.
