About me and my therapy practice

Everybody hurts at times, yet some people find it easier than others to get through challenging episodes.  Speaking with a therapist can be the first important step towards becoming the person you want to be.

I have been supporting people for many years; initially as an HCPC registered paramedic, and now (since 2017) as a therapist.  I am knowledgeable, confident, and experienced in working with a myriad of complaints, and always strive to support my clients in finding the change, growth, or understanding that they may be seeking.

I aim to provide a non judgemental space where we can work through your thoughts and feelings; here, I utilise a combination of therapeutic approaches, tools, and techniques as I believe in adjusting the session to meet the needs of the client.

I am aware that some clients prefer to engage with shorter-term therapy hence I am able to offer Single Session Therapy sessions where appropriate.

Practice description

As an integrative therapist, I practise within a person-centred model and am trained and qualified in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Eye-Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR), Rewind Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing (MI).  My specialties are anxiety/depression-related complaints, trauma, grief and loss, and cancer, however I am also experienced in working with self-esteem issues and anger management.

As a registered hypnotherapist, I am proficient in working with a variety of complaints to include smoking cessation, weight-loss support, and motivational or public speaking issues.

The adaption of thought processes is just the beginning of the positive change for each and every client; I am a strong believer that practically anything is possible when that goal becomes the focus plus, with a matching dedication and commitment from me, your therapist, you will be soon on the road to great things.

My first session

Our first session will usually be arranged following a short no-obligation telephone/online consultation - I feel it is important for us to directly speak to informally meet and briefly discuss the presenting issue(s).  This initial 15 minute consultation is free of charge.  This offered consultation is not mandatory.
