About me

I first became interested in hypnosis in the late sixties, along with my wider interests in Holistic Therapies, Esotericism and Spirituality. I also had an interest in Art and Symbolism, and worked as a graphic artist for a while. My interest in symbolism led me to the work of Carl Gustav Jung who continues to inspire me to this day. In the early eighties I took a Professional Hypnotist`s Course with The Institute of Hypnosis and Parapsychology, Inc.

Psychology and Counselling qualifications
Following this I decided to pursue formal qualifications in Psychology and Counselling, and in 1996 I gained a BSc (Hons) degree in Psychology – 2:1 from Manchester Metropolitan University. Following this I completed the Diploma in Counselling at Stockport College in 1997, whilst also completing an MSc in Psychology and Counselling at Manchester Metropolitan University.

In 2001 I completed a Certificate in Education at Stockport College whilst continuing to work as a counsellor for several Employee Assistance Programmes (EAPs) and run my own private practice in Manchester. My study and training in Psychology and Counselling has provided me with an excellent theoretical grounding in all the models of Psychology, Counselling and Supervision. Additionally, 20 years of private practice has provided me with extensive practical experience of providing one-to-one counselling on a wide range of issues.

Professional membership and Accreditation
In 2005 I gained Accredited Status with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) No. 522759. At this time I decided to extend my studies into Clinical Supervision, and in 2006 gained a Certificate in Supervision from The Manchester Institute for Psychotherapy.

  I am registered with the BACP Register of Counsellors and Psychotherapists. This received accredited status from the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care in 2014.

My BACP Accredited Status requires me to complete a minimum of thirty hours of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) per year. As part of this requirement I completed the Hypnotherapy for Counsellors & Psychotherapist course with NLP Vision in May 2015 (validated by the BACP).

In December 2016 I gained the Diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (DSFH) from the Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH).

In March 2017 I passed the Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma (HPD) which is considered to be the “gold standard” in hypnotherapy training with the prestigious Clifton Practice.

What to expect in the first session

In the first session we will explore the best way hypnotherapy can help you, and complete an assessment. I will also explain how the brain works and answer any questions you have.

The Solution Focused approach focuses on how you want things to be in the future, rather than dwelling on or analysing the past. By exploring preferred futures, you can gradually recognise what would need to change, and identify the necessary steps to move forward

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a collaborative process which helps you to make positive changes in your life. By connecting with your inner resources, SFH can help you become the person you want to be.

Several conditions are either caused by, or have anxiety as a major contributing factor. Solution Focused Hypnotherapy helps reduce this general level of anxiety which then has a positive impact on all other areas of your life. This is achieved through progressive relaxation and guided visualization. By focusing on establishing new patterns of responding to life events, you are empowered to move forwards.

FREE HYPNOTHERAPY CD
During our initial consultation I will explain how Solution Focused Hypnotherapy works
and give you a free Hypnotherapy CD with no obligation to continue.
I will also answer any questions you may have about hypnotherapy.
