As a Sport Mental Health Consultant, I also offer bespoke training to teams & organisations, find out more about my work in this area here!
My approach is very down to earth, with no 'psychobabble' and always with you at the centre of our work together.
Aside from work, I live in Cheshire and enjoy walking and spending time outdoors as part of looking after my own mental fitness and wellbeing.
With my career to date spent working in elite sport, I understand the unique challenges athletes face, juggling this role alongside other commitments and being a part of sporting environments.
I've worked with both individuals and groups from a range of sports at all levels including International, Olympic and Paralympic athletes, full-time professionals, semi-professionals, student-athletes and players within academy systems.
I have particular experience working with and studying athletes who have experienced career ending injuries and supporting those transitioning out of sport.
I am also a member of the UK Sports Institute (formerly EIS) Mental Health Practitioner Network, providing counselling to athletes in the Olympic and Paralympic World Class Programmes.
As a qualified Psychotherapist and registered member of BACP, I align myself to their ethical principles of practice.
I regularly undertake personal and professional development and CPD training, to keep me my practice up to date and evidence based.
All of my work, whether counselling or within my consultancy, is underpinned by the following values:
Me being me and you being you in the work that we do together.
My training and experience, underpinned by ethics, provides you with a credible and safe service.
There is no one 'right way' to do things, I'll be led by you and give my professional guidance along the way.
I will offer non-judgemental and empathetic support to you.
