Thank you for visiting my profile.
My practice is founded on evidence-based therapeutic interventions. My training and experience have taught me that every client is unique and in my practice, I look for the best-suited therapy for each individual. My orientation is integrative and uses a mixture of cognitive-behavioural approaches, solution-focused strategies, stress management and relaxation, and imagery work as well as techniques based on Mindfulness to provide the client with the best path to recovery.
I work with and help clients who suffer from anxiety (e.g. performance anxiety, public speaking fear, exam anxiety, social anxiety).
I can also help people with
- intrusive thoughts or/and compulsive behaviour
- low self-esteem
- confidence issues
- people who want to get rid of unwanted habits (e.g. nail biting, smoking)
- and many more
Clients in my practice who are stressed can learn relaxation techniques, learn about and practice mindfulness, and learn to be more assertive and in control of their lives.
I provide confidential services in a professional and non-judgmental environment that is safe and specific to each individual. Moreover, I welcome feedback from my clients and adapt my approach to meet their needs while working professionally and consistently in line with the Code of Ethics to assure the best outcome for the client.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a doctorate in Psychology and received training and qualified in evidence-based interventions such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (REBT) and Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy (CBH). In my approach to clients, I also integrate strategies based on Mindfulness.

The General Hypnotherapy Register
Hypnotherapists may become members of the General Hypnotherapy Register if they satisfy certain criteria with regard to both training and ongoing requirements as determined from time to time by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC).
Members are either registered at Practitioner status (which confirms that the GHR acknowledges their qualification to practice), or Affiliate status. Although Affiliate level registrants will have completed a sufficient number of training hours to equip them to commence seeing clients on a limited basis, the GHR does not acknowledge them to have yet been trained to full practitioner level.
All GHR Registered Practitioners are required to accept the published Code of Ethics and Complaints & Disciplinary Procedure.
