Like many, I am no stranger to profound losses throughout my life. Aged just 16, my wonderful mother died, after a five-year battle with cancer. The pain and loss cast long shadows for decades.


Sadly, I received another devastating blow when I suffered child birth complications.


As a result of I was left with ongoing physical health problems which left me unable to have more children and ultimately led to two divorces, plus the loss of my career within the emergency services.


In another cruel twist of fate, I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2019, just two weeks after celebrating my 53rd birthday. I received my diagnosis at exactly the same age my mother was, at her time of death.


The impact was so profound that it led me to train as a therapist, specialising in Grief Recovery ,Hypnotherapy and various other holistic therapies, as I was naturally drawn down this path to help others.


The life events I have faced, coupled with my experience and qualifications, have inspired me to work with others to help them overcome their own challenges.


I pride myself on an empathetic and supportive approach, I look to help others tackle issues and move forward with their lives.

  • Advanced Grief Recovery Specialist

  • Advanced Clinical Hypnotherapist

  • Emotional Freedom Therapist ( EFT)

  • Reiki Master
