As a therapist, I am privileged to be able to help others transform their lives. I provide therapeutic support in overcoming emotional and mental health issues, and reducing and managing stress and anxiety, so that you can enjoy a life that is happier, healthier, and longer.
There is no "one size fits all" approach to therapy, and so my approach is to understand how best I can help you as an individual, tailoring how I work to best suit you and your needs. This may involve a variety of techniques, such as Hypnotherapy, Talking therapy, CBT, EFT, NLP, psycho-coaching, Life Coaching, Mindfulness, and so on. In this way, we can work together in a manner that will work for you, and enable you to get the most out of your time with me. In a confidential and calm space, you will be able explore your issues and emotions safely, express yourself openly, and together, we can work to help you discover answers and resources which, most likely, already lie within you. In this way, you can take positive steps towards a healthier and happier future, however you envisage that to be.
I have particular expertise in anxiety and stress management, mainly because have found that this affects over 90% of my clients and is either the root cause, or a significant contributing factor in the issue they have come to see me about. I run an online Stress Management Solutions Programme for individuals and groups, and I host Anxiety Management and Support Groups in my local area. I am a firm believer in Prevention being better than Cure, and with robust anxiety management, it is possible to take control of and reduce anxiety, and ultimately reduce the chances of it developing into something more sinister and potentially life threatening in the long term.
Before I became a Therapist, I was a solicitor for many years which gave me the corporate and management experience necessary to work with businesses. As such, I work with the corporate sector in providing training and workshops in mental health issues and Stress Management at Work, and I consult in devising and implementing an effective, economical, and robust Stress Management Strategy in order to help the business decrease its absence and staff turnover costs, and increase productivity.
Please contact me directly to have an initial chat, so that you can decide if you would like to work with me, and we can take things forward from there.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained with the London College of Clinical Hypnosis, in tandem with the University of West London, gaining a Distinction in my Post Graduate Certificate in Clinical Hypnotherapy.

My EFT training was with Masha Bennett, (AAMET Master Trainer), in EFT Levels 1 and 2, and I am working towards full accreditation status.
My training continues as I remain vigilant in expanding my learning and keeping up to date with developments in the psycho-therapeutic world.
I have gained significant practical experience in training and presenting throughout my legal career, which I put to good use now in my training and workshop based coaching sessions for individuals and groups.
