About me

Over the past 30 years, I have worked within youth services, drug and alcohol rehabilitation programmes, adult mental health services and schools. My training and experience of working alongside both adults and children have motivated a strongly held commitment to work to help improve people’s sense of wellbeing and support their goals of change.

I like to work in a solution-focused way in order to facilitate the changes you want in your life.

The mind-body link and holistic approach is well evidenced and researched. As a wellbeing practitioner, I steer away from the ‘one-size-fits-all therapy’ and instead, prefer to work by integrating different therapeutic approaches to create a personalised treatment plan that helps you to achieve your goals and find your way to wellbeing.

I draw predominantly upon counselling techniques, hypnotherapy, NLP and a psychotherapeutic approach called Brain Working Recursive Therapy (BWRT).

I can help you overcome many issues but my areas of specialism are:

  • Anxiety/stress/depression
  • Fears and phobias
  • Lack of confidence and low self-esteem
  • Weight reduction
  • Habits
