Over the past 30 years I have gained a wealth of experience working within education, as well as in community settings.  My role as a Guidance Practitioner has been to help others to assess and overcome personal barriers, engage in positive activities, raise aspirations, and support them in progression planning, achieving positive outcomes centred on either education, employment, or personal development. Working with individuals and groups of both young people and adults, I help others to maximise their potential and build a positive future.  My qualifications cover the area of Advice, Counselling & Psychotherapy along with Careers Education and Guidance.

In addition, I have a range of qualifications in holistic therapies dating back to 2001, as I developed a strong personal interest in this area.  We all live in a busy world which can place demands on us, and I am a great believer that we can also improve and manage our wellbeing when we return to some of the basics of human life. Often when we explore our self, we find how to simply life and reconnect with our spiritual instinctive self and the natural world around us, which can offer healing opportunities.  This viewpoint led me to study Anatomy and Physiology, Aromatherapy, Swedish /Transforming Touch- No Hands Massage, Indian Head Massage as well as Reiki Healing and I have shared the benefits of these others. In more recent year I have also delivered Relaxation, Meditation, Sound Bath and Creative Art sessions to help others take time out and relax, after all health statistics have proven that an “unbalanced” life can cause the body stress and disease, in turn having a negative impact on our emotional and physical health and wellbeing.

Until now I have run these services from my home and community centres. Whilst continuing to work within education part time, I am now looking forward to expanding my passion for holistic therapies by delivering services here at the Cheshire Wellness Centre.

Through my broad skill set I have helped many individuals to assess life, look at changes that want to make and set life goals for the future, I find it very rewarding helping and empowering others to make the most of this journey we call “Life”, and I look forward to working with you.
