Black Female Founder – This is Me!

Black Female Founder – This is Me!

I am good enough

I am fearless

I am confident

Let me break it down


I am a Black British born female. Living in London, with Jamaican heritage. 

Yes, both my parents are black!! (this is a regular question, I am asked constantly)!!

I first trained as a therapist in 1999. I had always been fascinated with human behaviour and particularly curious about the impact of race in mental health.

I spent the early part of my career working with addictions, mostly drug rehabilitation, later eating disorders and more recently trauma. I still have a small handful of patients to keep my clinical registrations, but it also keeps me real and humble! I love my patients. It is so rewarding to see people step into freedom.

I didn’t have a University degree until I was 33. Interestingly, this year was also one of the most painful years of my life. 

Filled with loss, trauma and grief. Happy to share more about this if we speak, unpacking it here is a very long essay! 

Maybe, I should record a podcast? The title TBC!!

I am a genuine expert in this field, with over 15 year’s experience delivering over 30,000 hours of both one to one and group work. 

In my 15 year career, I was often part of the ‘prove it again’ group and having to evidence my contributions, which fed into my previous life traumas. 

I would often over compensate by being a perfectionist, work-a-holic driving myself to incredibly high expectations! It’s exhausting and you never feel quite good enough.

Ps It is good to have standards, but just really important not to have expectations that everyone else will meet those standards.


What is Benevolent Health?

I always had an entrepreneurial spirit and freedom is my highest value!

I started Benevolent Health in 2017 as a side hustle. I never imagined it would lead to my full- time employment. I was just on a mission to make mental health more accessible. I felt my purpose was to bring different perspectives to mental health and share diverse narratives.

The mental health narrative is very euro-centric all over the world. I saw time and time again the impact of micro aggressions and not feeling valued.

Benevolent health provides facilitation and workshops to promote wellbeing and build a culture of belonging. I always knew the one size fits all approach was not really a solution and excluded, particularly marginalised groups from accessing early interventions.

I love collaborations and have worked with some amazing experts to create a range of summits and digital products.

During the multiple lockdowns, mental health crisis and a shrinking qualified workforce. I developed Kinship a Safespace for diverse corporate women to explore intersectionality, particularly the impact of Race & Mental Health in the corporate space.

It is one of the biggest contributors to mental health in the workplace, particularly for diverse women, who have or are experiencing loss, grief and trauma.

If you are or have been part of the kinship group. You would have experienced the support and containment the group provides and acknowledgement of some of the challenges and difficulties you experience in corporate. 

We meet the first Friday of every month and I would love to see you there! Please register here 


Success & wellbeing are not mutually exclusive

My heart is for diverse women and my mission is to see more paradigm shifting women who are often overlooked or dismissed elevated into leadership positions, without sacrificing their mental health.

I have a 6-week accelerator programme for diverse women to increase your impact and income. But, really we go much deeper, addressing some of the real issues that are sabotaging your progression. 

If it is costing you too much to stay the same and you want to get the results you deserve. 

You have to start going after what you really want and start to change what you have been telling yourself for years!
