About me

I know everyone has the potential within them to bring about change. My passion is supporting others in discovering and knowing who they truly are. I believe the most important relationship we have is with our self. If you don’t know who you are, how can you show up fully in a relationship with another?


A very warm welcome to Lighthouse Therapies.

What I offer is all about you!  However, It feels important to share with you a bit about me so you get a sense if I am the right therapist for you.

Over the past two decades through my own journey of self-discovery I have gotten to a place where I can fundamentally see ‘life is happening for me rather than to me’, this realisation shifted something profound for me.

To get to this place I have delved deep, discovered my story and healed wounds.  The discoveries I have made along this path have allowed me to transform many relationships and areas of my life.   Where limitations and restrictions were stopping me living the life I wished to lead.

I view life as an inside out experience.  I have found it is the only way to find balance and experience an authentic sense of happiness and fulfilment.   I have discovered how essential huge dollops of self-compassion are in my day to day life and the importance of being my own best friend.

This is where I am now and it all started back in 2005 whilst I was working in Human Resources.  On paper it was a great job but I just wasn’t feeling it.  Looking back now I can see it was the start of me realising that this chapter had reached its sell by date.  

It was at this time I embarked on my Reiki journey, which led me to expand my thinking around universal energy.   I had a sense there was more to life than what I could tangible see.  I loved using the reiki energy and the transformational impact it was having on my life.

Throughout the different trainings I embarked on I learnt to connect with myself on a deeply intimate level, noticing where I wasn’t being honest with myself, what I was putting up with and where my life was out of balance.

I have a passion for learning and have lost count of the number of books and continual professional development training days I have attended.  I have worked with hundreds of clients over thousands of sessions.  I completely respect the uniqueness each client brings.  I am humbled and honoured when I am chosen to walk alongside a client for part of their journey.

I know the journey of self-discovery, healing and growth is a lifelong commitment. When I have experienced challenges, I have found it invaluable to have a therapist to walk with me.  It’s not that you can’t do it on your own it’s just easier and kinder to yourself to have someone to support you.  

This is why I am passionate about working with those who are committed to discovering more about themselves and unlocking their true potential.

It’s important to find a therapist that’s a good fit. If any of what I have shared sparks intrigue, please get in touch to have a complimentary chat. Please click on the ‘connect’ button below to send an enquiry.
