Who Am I?

Useful Woman to Know?


When I was born I understand my parents were told I would never walk, talk, sit up of feed myself, if I survived the first 24 hours the doctors would do their best.

Nevertheless, main stream educated I have worked in a number of industries, private and public sectors, finance, sales and travel. Redundancy in the year 2000 helped me to retrain, beginning my journey toward counselling.

By 2006 personal experience had shaped my interests and I found myself working with people dealing with life limiting illness, long term health conditions and carers. I helped care for an elderly person with dementia and know the limitation of services available. I also experienced a shocking and sudden death of someone close. I learned about my own resources and of those around me becoming, as some say, A Useful Woman to Know

By 2011 I was qualified and in 2012 I began my private practice – Moments of Muddle, for when life doesn’t make sense.

During 2012/3 I trained in Advocacy and Mindfulness. I have learned good self care, for me, is fundamental to caring and maintaining a balanced, healthy life.

I offer Mindfulness taster sessions and numbers permitting a Mindful Change Group offering the benefits of a therapeutic setting, at low costto enable those finding change in their life a challenge.

Thank you so much.” Surrey Carer

By 2014 I had agreed to co-ordinate a BACP Private Practice Regional Network Group.

In 2016 I gained a Certificate in Supervision.

I adhere to British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, (BACP) Ethical Framework for The Counselling Professions including regular meetings with a supervisor to monitor my practice and continued professional development and have professional indemnity insurance.
