I knew I wanted to be a psychologist when I was 15.

Shortly after realising that my inability to look at blood without fainting meant I wasn’t going to get far as a Doctor...

But life took a more unexpected route and while I studied psychology at university I only completed my therapeutic training in my 30s.

My deliberate choice to return to psychology was rooted in a desire to offer to others the psychological insights that transformed my own personal and professional life. This desire to support and empower people on their own journey of growth and transformation is what inspires my work today.

Now I am the UK expert in Bowen systems theory, an evidence-based psychological approach which understands human flourishing through our embeddedness in relationships. In addition my psychological training includes a variety of other psychological and therapeutic models including psychodynamic, person-centred, and cognitive behavioural approaches.

I am a chartered Counselling Psychologist, Executive Coach and Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society, recognised for my experience and contribution to the field of psychology.

The Team Brain® Programme

Over time my integrative psychological stance led to the development of the Team Brain Programme.

This holistic programme draws on the relational and systems insights of Bowen systems thinking and integrates them with evidence-based individual psychological approaches.

The Team Brain Programme unlocks the 4 core elements that together underpin psychological health and wellbeing, leadership effectiveness and relationship quality even amidst unexpected circumstances and significant pressure.

On the journey together

I am a daughter, spouse, mother, business owner and team leader.

I believe in authenticity in my work, and I seek to embody the same principles that I offer you in our work together.

I've navigated personal challenges, including family members experiencing chronic health issues, mental health struggles, and neurodiversity. Additionally, I've faced professional hurdles including burnout and organisational trauma.

Such experiences have matured and deepened the quality of empathy, connection, and insight that I am able to offer to you.
