In the caring professions for over three decades

Carers Outreach & Wellbeing Practitioner

Chronic Conditions Nurse

BACP Counsellor

ILM Level 5 Coach

RGN (retired)

I started my career working with older adults in residential accommodation, before training as a Nurse in London and going on to work in A&E, Minor Injuries, and Chronic Conditions Management. Whilst working in the NHS I trained to become a coach, gaining my ILM 5 in 2017.

As part of my role I delivered Acceptance and Commitment Therapy sessions to the general public, which opened my interest in mindfulness and meditation (still a work in progress).

My passion for promoting Wellbeing led me to working with a Domestic Violence project and enrolling on a Foundation Degree Course in Counselling with Colleg Sir Gar, from which I graduated in 2023.

I am now working with a Carers Support Charity, offering one-to-one support, group support and training.  I also run my own business offering coaching and counselling - 

Bluebird Wellbeing

This business has been decades in the making. The mission is to create a space for you to explore what matters to you. I will support you in creating the changes you want to see in your life. I know you have the knowledge and resources inside yourself:  my job is to help you become comfortable in your own strength.
