About Me

Hello there! If we work together, I’ll get to know quite a lot about you, so here’s a little bit of information about me – just in case you were wondering…

Why do you do this job? I really like people. Unless you’re a psychopath, I’ll like you too. My previous struggles with my own issues means that I have come out the other side with empathy and compassion for others. There is no better feeling than seeing the amazing turnaround in people from the start of the programme to the end.

What are my credentials – how do you know I know what I’m doing? I’ve been helping people to resolve their anxieties and issues since 2000, treating thousands of people over the years. I have a degree in Psychology and over the years, have studied, practiced and been a participant of many different types of therapy. These include hypnotherapy, CBT, NLP, EFT, counselling, psychotherapy, Pure Hypnoanalysis and brief solution focused therapy – I’ve been around the therapy block a bit!

I have been been a Thrive Consultant ever since The Thrive Programme was first created, and am proud to have been awarded the Thrive Consultant of the Year award in 2013. I’m a member of The ATPC – the Association of Thrive Programme Consultants, and abide by their their strict code of ethics based around respect, responsibility and transparency. I have full professional insurance.

How did I get into doing this job?  Having known what it feels like to have poor self esteem and social anxiety myself (ok ok, I’ll stop going on about it), I’ve always been interested in what makes us tick. This is what prompted me to choose Psychology as a degree. I didn’t jump straight into helping people as a career afterwards, I did so after a string of other jobs including software trainer, graphics recruitment consultant and Market researcher.

help for anger management I cannot recommend this lady enough. She enjoys the fact she is helping you and her compassion, understanding, ease and trustworthiness is second to none. So worth every penny I spent and I was kinda sad when she “sorted me out” because I wouldn’t see her again. Oh and she has a fantastic sense of humor

Where do you work?  I have offices in Rickmansworth in North London/Herts and Aylesbury in Bucks. However, because The Thrive Programme works well via Skype, I have worked with clients in such places as China, New Zealand, Australia, America, Dubai and Essex.

Anything else I should know about you? I’m stepmum to two children. This role has happened relatively recently so my Thrive for children knowledge has come right to the fore. I like to play tennis, go to the cinema and I’m a half-decent pool player. When I’m feeling a little creative around the edges, I slip away to a little studio where I fuse glass to make things such as jewellery and plates. I also have a terrible sense of direction and really, REALLY hate tomatoes.
