I joined the Elisabeth Curtis Centre as a volunteer in 2015, qualifying as a Coach in 2016. I started coaching on Monday mornings, I then took on the Wednesday morning and afternoon sessions, Tuesday evening sessions, and most recently I joined Kyle in coaching Saturday morning sessions. In 2018, I took on the role of Pony Welfare Officer, as I am extremely passionate about the welfare of our ponies.

I started riding when I was 13, and on leaving school, I began my career in the equine industry as a competition groom with showjumpers and eventers.

I have been working as a counsellor since I qualified in 2002. I specialise in providing therapy for victims of sexual assault, survivors of childhood sexual abuse, and clients on the autistic spectrum. I am also a crisis worker at the Emerald Centre, supporting victims of sexual assault. I am passionate about mental health, the impact of abuse, and I have a special interest in autism.

My work at the Elisabeth Curtis Centre is very rewarding, as it enables me to combine my passion of helping people with my passion for horses.
