Trainer, counsellor, speaker, women and girl's mental health advocate and founder of Motherwell Cheshire.
My passion in life is to support and inspire women and girls of all ages throughout the mothering journey. As a trained counsellor who's needed counselling myself in the past, I talk openly about my own struggles having suffered an ectopic pregnancy and miscarriage. In my experience, we have been repeatedly failed by inadequate and disjointed services so my goal is to ensure that the voices of women will finally be heard in the mental health system. Women and girls with complex mental health problems, especially those who have suffered abuse and violence, are in need of specialist support and this cannot be purely clinical.
This is why I set up my charity Motherwell which offers community-based projects for vulnerable mothers - giving them access to a support network and bridges the gap in services for women’s wellbeing across Cheshire. My charity is run by women for women and is open to all mothers, whatever their stage in life. I’m a strong believer that information empowers people and I work hard to drive forward change so that our voices are heard.
I am a mum of 3 children 1 daughter and 2 boys, I have been with my partner 23 years. I am passionate about the towns that our charity works in, and like to feel that we play a part in the being the heart of the community.
I love reading, hence my reading section on my website. Since 2018 I have been open water swimming and love it, it has really helped my own mental health.
My other passion is talking, I love finding out about people, their stories fascinate me, hence my podcast and you tube channel
