I am a qualified therapist and trainer and I started my helping career supporting the bereaved. I specifically worked with those bereaved by murder and suicide, attending coroner’s court and inquests. I now offer private therapy and teaching services at Helping You Sparkle™, encouraging positive mental health and wellbeing. I offer talks and workshops on a variety of topics including dreams, stress management, employability, and assertiveness. I have helped people in 1-1 and group settings for over 10 years.
My qualifications and training include Therapeutic Counselling, Delivering Adult Learning, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Childhood Behaviour, Management and Leadership, Sleep Training (from birth upwards), Mental Health First Aid and Mindfulness. I established the first ever dedicated resource which focused on mental health in pregnancy. I also raise awareness of Domestic Abuse and have relevant training in this topic.
My career includes an extensive TV and media profile. This involved regular appearances on ITV’s This Morning and presenting the Guide to Sleep on Daybreak. I have also featured in Spirit & Destiny, Pregnancy and Birth and Natural Health magazines and featured on radio programmes including BBC 2’s weekend/bank holiday extravaganzas with Aled Jones.
If you have a PR or media enquiry, or would like invite me to one of your events, please contact me.
