For over 20 years I have been offering coaching and therapy support to people like you, who want to feel free of anxiety, unhelpful emotions, phobias and more. I can help you find the peace, stillness and confidence that you desire.

- stress or overwhelm
- substance misuse
- low self esteem and low confidence
- being HSP
- coming to terms with sexuality and gender

I am qualified in 8 different types of therapy so you get much more than just coaching when we work together. I work with you, to blend a unique set of approaches that meet your requirements using: Life Coaching, Hypnotherapy, Emotional Freedom Technique, Neuro-linguistic Programming, Timeline Therapy, Mindfulness, Satir Transformational Therapy, Counselling, Trauma-informed Therapy.
Whilst I work with people from all sections of society, I have a particular focus on HSP and LGBTQ+ clients and bring compassion and understanding to a community I understand from the inside. I am also passionate about supporting those who identify as Highly Sensitive Persons (HSP).

As a member of the LGBTQ+ community and an HSP I know what it means to feel different. If you’re struggling with feelings of separation and isolation, not fitting in, and not feeling understood, we will have much in common.. I spent much of my childhood and early adulthood feeling just that. Thanks to a fascinating journey of learning and discovery my own change experiences have enlightened my client work. I’d love to support you to thrive and shine. Drop me a line. Let’s have a chat soon.
You don’t have to identify as LGBTQ+ or HSP for us to get along, but if you feel an outsider, or different I know we’ll get along.
Call or email now. Let’s talk.
