I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, 200 hr Yoga Teacher, Competitive Weightlifter, Indoor Cycling Guru and a Healer who is also Healing. I am inspired by the everyday human potential to do the amazing that exists in each of us. My professional experience has been working with people to overcome challenges and blockages to reach their potential.
My background has been in mental health and non-profit services since 2003. In the UK, I was a Registered Practitioner Psychologist (HCPC registered), Chartered Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society & an Accredited Cognitive Behavior Therapy practitioner (BABCP). I worked in the National Health Service in the United Kingdom as a Cognitive Behavior Therapist where I remained until I qualified as a Psychologist in 2009. Following that, I worked in a private mental health hospital in Central London and in private practice where my clients were primarily individuals dealing with trauma, eating disorders and mood problems. My work since then has been to help people heal as well as to support others to function at their peak. This led me to work with athletes and sports teams, as well as performers in music, the arts and the corporate world.
I moved to Texas in 2016 and became licensed as Professional Counselor (LPC) in Texas in 2018. I work with individuals and groups on body image, trauma recovery and healing our relationships with food. I also have privilege of leading yoga practice and indoor cycling classes. In my journey, movement has been healing. I spent so much of my life feeling scared and helpless, but through weightlifting I found inner strength – I just love to share that with others! I am a USAW Level 1 Coach and a certified obesity specialist (National Centre for Eating Disorders, UK).
I love to share my passion for health, wellness and being madly in love with your body and your life. My writing has been featured fitness and mental health publications such as BoxRox, Therapy Today and Bulk.com.
In my free time I compete in Olympic Weightlifting, 71kg, Masters Division, spend free time with family, my dog or enjoying exploring all that Texas has to offer!
