In 2014, I was inspired to write and self-publish my first book, Understanding the Highly Sensitive Child. Since then I have gone on to develop a series of easy-to-read ‘in a nutshell’ guide books helping readers to better understand highly sensitive people HSPs and highly sensitive children HSCs.  


I am a fully qualified integrative counsellor and registered member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy). I am based in Devon, UK and offer a counselling service for adults face to face by telephone or online video call.

Check out these book reviews from Amazon and Goodreads.


Supporting The Highly Sensitive Child

I am a parent of a child who is highly sensitive, in fact I noticed bits of me an my other child in there too and it has made me have a better understand and approach to managing our lives. A must read for parents and anyone who has contact with children who are highly sensitive. I can't wait to read more.



Supporting the Highly Sensitive Child

I bought this for a friend who has been feeling quite challenged by one of her children. I suggested the child was most likely highly sensitive and sent her this book - she says it has been transformational and she wished she'd had it sooner.



Understanding the Highly Sensitive Child

I really liked this book. I have read quite a few books on High sensitivity - and I liken my own sensitivity to my inner child/core self so I found this book clear, concise, helpful, and insightful. I recommend this to anyone who wants to be more sensitive to other children or to themselves.
