Helping you understand why children (and grown-ups) do the things they do, so you can get along better. 

“Mirror sighed. “I believe everyone deserves a happily ever after, but I think that happy endings don’t just happen by accident – you can’t wait for one. You have to make them happen.”


Michael Buckley,

Can we have a heart to heart?

Most family struggles are, at heart, misunderstandings of others’ thoughts, feelings and actions. Without that understanding, life and relationships can feel confusing and stuck.

Because everyone deserves a chance at their ‘happily ever after’

I qualified as an Adlerian Counsellor in 2003, as a Supervisor in 2005 and gained a Masters degree in Coaching in 2019.

I am a parent of three grown daughters and I have also run my own business for many years.

That gives me insight and experience in the areas of surviving raising a family, running a business and helping people understand and get through life’s difficult times.
