About me and my therapy practice

I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor (National Council of Integrative Psychotherapists – NCIP/MBACP), Hypnotherapist, and Behaviour Specialist, with many years of experience, working with children, adults, couples and families… in various settings.

I am trained in lots of different modalities, and use these accordingly to support individuals with their current need.

I work in my own therapy room and am flexible with session times etc.

Practice description

I am experienced in working with both children and adults and I obviously adapt my delivery to meet the age and need – e.g. young children may benefit from more play-based therapy if appropriate, in order to enable effective engagement.

I have always had a passion to support others and worked for many years in a youth work management capacity, supporting the more vulnerable and disadvantaged young people and their families in many areas. This offered me a great opportunity to fulfil a rewarding profession in supporting individuals to grow and develop both emotionally and socially.

I now run my own business working with children, adults, families and couples and have recently decided to set up my own therapy room to enhance further my service to others. This complements my work in schools and my teaching.

My first session

Prior to the session, you would complete a well-being assessment and then the first session would enable us to discuss your need and the support that can be offered moving forward.

Any future sessions will always be subject to the client wanting to continue - there will be no minimum expectation etc.
