Just trying to enjoy myself - and be useful at the same time.

And so this is what I do...


I help organisations navigate the emotional terrain of the workplace, helping senior personnel to manage and embed change in the culture, structure and processes of the business.


I’ve written 3 novels, all published by Bloomsbury. I’ve also written for TV, newspapers and journals. I’ve just completed my fourth novel, and a ghost written memoir both of which will be published shortly.

Watch this space.


I’m a BACP Accredited Counsellor. I specialise in short term, high impact, solution-focussed therapy.  I work in private practice and in GP surgeries across the South West.

Community Worker

I work in the VCSE (voluntary, community and social enterprise) sector as a trustee, a trainer and as a volunteer, helping clients to overcome the difficulties in their lives. Revenue from my corporate clients helps to fund and subsidise this work . 


SenseEIA Consultancy

SenseEIA is a boutique consultancy with a difference - we provide data and stats to support our diagnosis of the emotional terrain of yourbusiness or organisation. Instead of relying on a hunch, we measure influence across the business and then use that influence to drive the sharing of helpful stories that resonate, deliver impact and drive an authentic sustainable step increase in performance.

Writing for the fun of it...

Therapy that works....

The Counselling Zone provides counselling to individuals and supervision to therapists. The clinic is based in Falcon House, just outside Plymouth. I also work internationally online, via Skype. I currently support staff at the local hospital and I work with an agency providing rehabiliation services to ex-substance abusers. I have more than fifteen years experience in the therapy room, but life experience itself is what enriches my work. An authentic and valued relationship is the most healing medicine we can receive - and I continue to learn how to provide this - there is no end to the learning.

Giving something back...

Stories are most powerful when they’re paced, contained and flow - so a Storyjug is the model I use to sculpt powerful narratives from chaotic lives. Every sad story holds a ‘diamond in the rough’ - I tease out those stories. My social enterprise, StoryJug helps communities use story to influence those more powerful in their midst. Whether in workshops, in training or one-to-one coaching, I use my coaching skills to help people live the life they have imagined for themselves.
