Hello, I have 27 years experience as an integrative and interactive therapist offering a range of safe, effective, and empowering approaches to help people, and the tools to use well after therapy.
I assume you are trying to get a feel for who would be the right therapist for you and preparing to make informed decisions. Successful therapy can be potentially life changing and yet the thought of "therapy" can seem overwhelming. Remember therapy is a personal investment for yourself and can be an exciting course of discovery and empowerment to live life well and enable to bring the best out of you.
I specialise in stress and anxiety such as (PTSD/PTSS) Post Traumatic Stress Disorders, (OCD) Obsessive Compulsive Disorders, Addictions and Depression, including childhood issues, and chronic or acute health issues.
Individuals, couples and teenagers see me and I combine psycho-therapeutic interventions tailored to their unique needs, addressing the dynamic of what is presented, and importantly the underlying cause. Depending on their engagement and motivation, my clients tell me, and I witness, amazing results in a session. Just how many sessions and adjunctive "tasks" just depends on the complexity of what you want to achieve and your resources.
I offer a safe, supportive environment during which you can explore, gain awareness and the confidence to improve your life. My personal style is warm, engaging and intuitive. Clients tell me I am easy to talk to and they feel understood. I see myself as emotionally stable and friendly but serious about working with people so they gain skills and confidence through the therapeutic process. Whilst I provide support, information, guidance most importantly, I aim to facilitate your own inner insights for change and direction.
People come with a wide range of difficulties including low self esteem, anxiety and depression, frustration and anger, work and relationship difficulties; just trying to cope. Some are exhausted by trying harder, working harder...some have almost given up. Many come burdened by their childhoods. Most end therapy by empowering themselves to move forward in their lives with greater awareness and confidence. Most state they have never felt so good.
People need different support at different times during their "cycle of change" and I provide a flexible range of services and approaches to accommodate their process.
You have read this far so take the next step so you can continue the ripple of change towards success in many areas of your life. Call me today to help you further make informed decisions for yourself and your wellbeing. You have come this far...keep going.

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.
