I have been on the Management Committee since 2010. Initially as Treasurer then engaging in the role of Chairperson in 2013 to-date.

I am originally from a financial background, however, I retrained in 2012 and I am now working within Mental health as a psychotherapist and emotional wellbeing advisor for front line services. 

I hold a BA(hons) in Counselling and Psychotherapy and a DipHe in Child and Adolescent Counselling.

I have been a Trustee since 2019. 

Like Simone, I originally have come from a corporate background, being a derivatives trader for 14years. My passion, however, lies in helping others and working in the field of mental health.

In 2001 I retrained as a psychotherapist and was the Clinical Director of a bereavement counselling charity for 10 years. In 2015, I set up my own therapeutic counselling business UniqueMinds Counselling Ltd, offering professional 1-1 counselling for children, young people and adults, in schools, corporate companies and private practice. I have a team of associate counsellors who work alongside me and share my passion too.

I love learning and am currently extending my academic qualifications with a BSC (hons) in Cognitive Behavioural Therapeutic Approaches. I believe we are all unique and are born with the potential for growth and the capacity to embrace change from any age.
