About me and my therapy practice

I am a professional senior accredited counsellor with over 20 years experience working in the healthcare sector.

 I am also a clinical supervisor working with counsellors, students,  well being practitioners, specialist nurses and other psychological caring professionals.

Many of the people who come to me for help struggle with personal worries and concerns that stop them from living happy & fulfilled lives. Anxiety and depression are common problems and can massively affect self confidence and self esteem, which in turn affects relationships, work and happiness.

My core values are compassion, ethical and professional practice and a real desire to help people reach their potential.

         “Talking therapy can change your life” …. It really can.

I am trained in several approaches -

➢ CBT - this approach looks at how your thoughts affect your feeling and how this then affects your behaviour. (This approach is recommended by NICE guidelines for depression).

➢ Person Centred - this therapy help you to get in touch with your feelings and can be powerful in helping with self development and understanding yourself; working through your issues.

➢ Clinical Hypnotherapy - helps with a wide range of issues -  anxiety, stress, trauma, pain, poor sleep, weight loss, giving up vaping/smoking, fears & phobias e.g dentists, flying, exam nerves and public speaking. 

Your first session will be an assessment and together we will agree a personally tailored plan, perhaps using a combination of interventions. Effective therapy usually takes several sessions and the willingness for you to engage .

Therapy is confidential unless there is a safeguarding concern.

My first session

I offer a free 1/2 hour initial consultation for us to meet and  discuss how counselling (and hypnotherapy ) can  help you achieve your goals. Also to make sure I am the right counsellor for you, it's important that you feel we have a good rapport and that  I have the skills to meet your particular needs.

Our first session is an assessment where we can explore your worries, concerns and decide how best I can help. Together we will agree a treatment plan; therapy is likely to be a combination of counselling, clinical hypnotherapy and perhaps NLP - depending on your individual circumstances.
