I am a Counselor, a Wellness and Performance Coach, a Body-love advocate, a Competitive Weightlifter, an Indoor cycling Guru, 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 the challenges talented individuals have in reaching their potential.
My background has been in mental health and non-profit services since 2003. In the UK, I was registered practitioner Psychologist (HCPC registered), chartered Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society, an accredited Cognitive Behaviour Therapy practitioner (BABCP). I was a CBT (Cognitve Behavior Therapy) therapist in the National Health Service in the UK as a Cognitive Behavior Therapist where I remained until I qualified as a Psychologist in 2009. I worked in a private mental health hospital in Central London and in private practice where my clients were primarily high-performing 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, primarily weightlifters and CrossFit competitors.
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 working in fitness teaching indoor cycling classes. In my journey, being 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 compete in Olympic Weightlifting, 71kg, Masters Division. I also spend free time with family, my dog or enjoying exploring all that Texas has to offer!
