I founded Transforming Together as I realised that our personal issues often limit us living life to the full and are deeply entwined with how we connect with people socially or in the workplace. When struggling with physical and emotional ill health myself I couldn’t find the support I needed in any one place.  As a result I wanted to provide a high quality service where adults could feel safe to be real about their struggles and where their needs could be more effectively met by working seamlessly across the fields of counselling, coaching and training as required.

I have a BA(Hons), I am a Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy, I am an Accredited Counsellor Member of the Association of Christian Counsellors and I am a Member of the Association for Counselling and Therapy Online .

Since graduation my qualifications have included a Level 4 Diploma in Advanced Counselling Practice, a Certificate in Online Counselling Skills, a CPD programme in Telephone Counselling Skills, a Counselling and Psychotherapy Central Awarding Body (CPCAB) Level 5 Diploma in Wellbeing and Stress Management, a Diploma in Management and a Diploma in Business Excellence. I am a Licensed Trainer in the use of wellbeing and positive psychology materials with experience in writing and delivering high quality training courses to many employment sectors as well as to the general public. I am happiest in helping clients, family and friends to reach their full potential and would welcome the privilege to journey with you.

In practice my holistic tailored approach means I benefit the whole person e.g. you can be supported in terms of what is going on inside them as well as how they want to come across outwardly.   By integrating services like counselling, coaching and training you can experience much more long term transformation than if only one area of expertise is available.  Day by day I enable clients to maximise their potential through a combination of self-awareness, wellbeing training and personal motivation to attain their goals.

Transforming Together is driven by a Christian ethos, based on values from the Bible, to serve others wholeheartedly and to help everyone to live life in all its fullness.  These values are at the heart of my work.  I exist to serve everyone, of all faiths and none and from all backgrounds and walks of life.  I do not actively evangelise, but can help clients to explore the spiritual side to life and work from the Christian tradition if requested.   I provide Christian or non faith versions of counselling, training, meditation and mindfulness.

I have extensive experience of designing and delivering innovative wellbeing programmes within public, business, academic and charity sectors.   I have worked at senior levels in strategic and service delivery roles with large and small employers as well as pioneering and providing counselling, training and coaching services to many individual and organisational clients. I have worked as an Integrative Counsellor, Chaplain, Coach, Trainer and Board of Management member for several Counselling, Training and Chaplaincy Services in Dorset, Hampshire and Wiltshire and I am an Associate Counsellor for an Employee Assistance Provider.   I am a regular speaker at events in these fields and I am a Course Leader for courses for Counselling and Chaplaincy professionals. My breadth of experience and my passion to help individuals to find and love the life they were born to live enables me to inspire people from every walk of life.

I have accessible venues for face to face counselling and coaching in Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole.  Counselling and coaching services are available via telephone or online e.g. via video conferencing, email or instant messaging.

With Transforming Together you can not only survive but thrive!
