It's Nice To Meet You

Welcome to my personal webpage at Travel Counsellors. Since graduating from Hull University (with a degree in Drama) I have gained nearly 30 years experience within various sectors of the travel industry. Previous positions have included overseas sailing instructor, holiday rep, corporate/VIP flight attendant, cabin crew manager, cruise product manager as well as long-haul and cruise sales. All of which have given me a broad knowledge of travel as a whole.

Having spent several of my childhood years in East Africa, I've had the travel bug from an early age, and have travelled extensively worldwide throughout my life. I've also been fortunate enough to live and work in Sweden, Bahrain and New Zealand.

My specialist areas of expertise are cruising, Australia/New Zealand, Africa and tailor-made long-haul itineraries, as well as honeymoons. However, I am able to book all types of holiday arrangements including UK breaks, European packages, flight only etc. I am an accredited specialist for Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Tahiti, the Caribbean, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, Dubai, South Africa and Namibia, as endorsed by the relevant tourism authorities.

I am also one of only a few Masters with CLIA (previously known as Association of Cruise Experts), and in December 2015 I was awarded "Cruise Expert of the Year" for UK & Ireland by a panel of leading industry executives. I have since also been nominated for, and awarded, various other national cruise awards, including River Cruise Ambassador. As a cruise specialist I cruise every year and visit as many ships as possible to familiarise myself with the different products on offer - in the last few years I have either cruised with or visited ships belonging to all of the major cruise lines.

Working from my office at home without the distractions and limitations of the high street, and the impersonality and noise of a call centre, I am available at a time that suits you. I offer exceptional customer service to ensure each and every trip exceeds your expectations. I will give a bespoke personal service when arranging your holiday requirements, whether it be a package, tailor-made holiday, business travel, flights or accommodation only and car hire.

If you would like regular updates of my special offers, please do get in touch.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping to plan your dream holiday.
