People work with me when they want help with issues, such as:
- Weight loss
- Low self esteem.
We work together to help you, potentially, eliminate those problems permanently or learn to manage and cope with the issues in a better, more helpful way.
I have been helping people lead a happier, healthier life since 2002. I use hypnosis, cognitive behavioural therapy techniques, NLP, eye movement techniques and a new therapy, called BrainWorking Recursive Therapy (BWRT®), to help clients make the changes they want to make. I see clients at clinics in Newcastle and North Shields.
My clients are mainly adults though I do work with adolescents.
You can also buy my self-help audios which are available from my website, Facebook page, Ebay or via www.audible.co.uk.
My background is mainly in the voluntary and charity sectors where I was a fundraiser, manager and trainer. After completing her MBA in 2000 I decided to change focus and undertook life coaching training. Since then I have focused more on personal development and am a trained and qualified NLP master practitioner, clinical hypnotherapist and BWRT® solution focused therapist. My husband and I moved back to the north-east in 2009 having lived and worked for many years in Scotland.
I have experience of working with those living with life limiting illness and their families when I was a volunteer at North Northumberland Hospice Care.
I write a regular blog about all sorts of things which can be read via my website.
