Passionate About
Mental Health

mental health education

I discovered Psychology at school and became completely fascinated by it. My leisure reading at the age of 16 was a stack of psychology books and that was the start of my journey to now running my own mental health practice.

Along this journey, I trained and qualified as a registered mental health nurse and then as an accredited Cognitive Behavioural Therapist. I’ve worked with some of the most prestigious healthcare providers, including The Priory, the NHS, and Bupa. These roles have been so varied – from nursing on an acute mental health ward, providing a variety of therapies in a specialist eating disorder service, to establishing and running an onsite mental health clinic for a prominent corporate client.

From all of this, what I know to be true is that we are all human. We all have emotions, and sometimes they feel too much. Sometimes they get in the way of us feeling our best and living our lives the way we want to. We all have this in common, but these same emotions can sometimes block us from talking about how we feel and accessing valuable support and treatments. In struggling alone, we can end up feeling isolated in our experience, which makes us feel even worse.

I became dedicated to becoming a mental health specialist at the age of 16 and setting up Brighter Minds in 2020 was a major milestone. Through a range of mental health services developed over this time, I am here to share my knowledge and expertise with you so you can learn the skills clinically proven to help you feel better.
