In her own words

From the sheer elation of holding your new baby for the first time, to the rush of pride when your teenager achieves a cherished ambition, parenting is a lifelong journey. Every parent works towards the same goal - to nurture a child into a balanced young adult, ready to take on the challenges of living and thriving in our complex modern world.

Like any journey, there are many ups and downs. You may find yourself facing a huge range of challenges - anything from a baby refusing to be fed, to a child who answers back and refuses to behave. No matter what the bump in the road, help is at hand.

As a parent of two young adults and a qualified parenting counsellor, I know this journey well. My experience not only lies in bringing up my own two children, but also in my 12 years as a counsellor for the UK’s national parenting charity, ParentlinePlus, and a trainer and facilitator on parenting courses.

Over the past decade I have qualified in, and used, tried, tested and accredited counselling techniques and the latest professional thinking - all designed to help people solve problems, change behaviours and become confident parents.

I use structured counselling to explore your circumstances in detail, identify your issues and highlight ways to make your life that much easier. This process takes place in short stages, at a pace that suits you, and my initial help leads to a set of clear actions and guidelines that you can use. We can then take this further, to turn any issue into an opportunity to improve your parenting skills.

My service covers all aspects of parenting, with a particular focus on teenagers, their behaviour and discipline, managing a work/life balance and building family togetherness.
