I have been in full time Private Practice for over 15 years.
Before this I spent many years working in the Funeral profession and it was during this time that I became fascinated with how people ‘worked’. I completed a Diploma in Counselling, but found that as a process, counselling didn’t fit well with me because it kept my clients re-living and talking about the one thing they wanted to move away from. Counselling was solution focused enough for me so I re-qualified as a Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist, and then later I achieved a BSc. (Hons) in Psychology.
I believe no one therapy can ever really help every client or even the same client over time, so over the years I have also trained in many other therapies and techniques – everything from NLP, EFT, Havening, Mnemodynamic Therapy and a whole bunch more. I am also a Certified Instructor of Self-Hypnosis (certified by the Minnesota Institute of Hypnosis), a Certified Anxiety Specialist and a Certified Smoking Cessation Specialist (both certified by the UK Academy of Therapeutic Arts and Sciences). I am also a weight-loss expert. I use a combination of different techniques and therapies to design a personalised treatment plan for every client to help them achieve their goals.
It isn’t important that you know what these techniques and therapies are, it’s only important that you know I can help you.
