My passion is communication and connection; helping to support people in feeling heard, understood, valued and through expression, having a voice. 

I am a registered counsellor with the BACP, working with adults since 2016 and continuing to do so since qualifying in March 2019. I am also involved in supporting parent and child sessions with those affected by domestic abuse.   

Having completed the TIS diploma in March 2020, I trained as a trainer in March 2021 and a TIS supervisor in Sept 21.  As a Home Group Tutor, I have supported delegates attending the on-line diplomas, and I have both taken part and facilitated reflective group supervision, experiencing a felt sense of how beneficial this is. 

Alongside counselling I have 15 years’ experience of working as a Speech and Language Therapy assistant. Creating resources for, and working with, children and young people who have profound and multiple learning disabilities and require alternative ways of communicating which allows their ‘voice’ to be heard.   

As a Regional Makaton tutor over 10 years, I have had the privilege of training staff, parents, and professionals, mindful of sensitively holding different groups with different needs. I have also worked with frontline agencies and have set up a project creating a resource to equip them in supporting vulnerable people in crisis.  

I have been involved in different community teams including Street Pastors, Food Bank, and youth projects, and I am currently a volunteer Chaplain with the Police. 

My vision is to dovetail all aspects of my skills and experience. To offer space to anyone who wants to effect any change where they feel it may be needed, by listening to how things are, what matters, and reflecting this back through the lens of the Trauma Informed approach.
