I’m Avril and I’m an expert in building self-confidence and self-belief.
With a renewed sense of self-belief I help adults feel happy within themselves.

Using my expertise, I will support you to overcome unhelpful thoughts and feelings that are holding you back, so that you can begin to feel calm, confident and happy.  Together we will explore your individual needs and I will then design and deliver a personal and tailored self-confidence therapy programme, so that you can experience powerful and permanent change.

With my help you will find Confidence, Inspiration, Inner Calm & Peace Of Mind…


Are you filled with self-doubt when faced with making decisions? Do you find yourself trying to please others so that they will like you? Do you keep quiet, believing that you have nothing of interest to say?  Let me help you create a new level of self-confidence so that you can feel good about yourself and your abilities.

Inner Calm

Do you struggle with anxiety but don’t know how to deal with it? Are you often tired or stressed from doing too much? Do you fear being judged by others, or feel that you are not good enough. I can teach you coping strategies to help you feel calmer, in control, and with powerful self-belief.


Do you feel unhappy, and don’t know why? Are you stuck in a rut and lack the motivation to make positive changes? If you suffer from low mood or depression you may feel hopeless or alone in the world. Let me help you to make positive choices which inspire you to move forward.

Peace Of Mind

Do you experience nightmares or flashbacks? Are you easily startled or hypervigilant? Are you having difficulty sleeping or feeling numb? Do you feel irritated, or angry? These are some of the symptoms of PTSD. I can help you eliminate those feelings, bringing you peace of mind and self-belief.

“I’m really not exaggerating in saying that the last couple of months have been life changing. Something I know I worked for, but also that you enabled. I cannot remember the last time I felt this comfortable in myself, this in control of my life, this able to cope with my thoughts and emotions. Not only that, but I can feel improvements all the time, and I am in a place now that I’d given up on ever reaching. I really am so so grateful.”
