Life is not simple and I am not a stranger to trauma and difficulty myself. As a Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist I offer the opportunity to be heard and and to relax in a safe, professional yet personal and sincere environment. With experience in many roles in the field of psychology, counselling and a passion for people development, I offer hypnotherapy and counselling based on sound ethical principles. I am also qualified as a nutritional therapist, and I strongly recommend good nutrition as a first step in bringing about change.
I have successfully worked with clients living through change, illness, trauma, relationship issues, fear, obsessive thoughts, weight and eating, panic and addictions.Examples include fear of travelling, chocolate and other food addictions, anxiety related to work or home stress and panic disorders. Having volunteered in a hospice I have used hypnotherapy to help patients with their generalised anxiety relating to their illness and/or treatment such as needle phobias and nausea. In the same setting I have counselled many people who have faced the loss of loved ones. Should medical conditions become a concern during your therapy you will be referred to an appropriate medical practitioner.
A short note about myself: I was born in South Africa and have lived and worked in the UK for seven years. I am married with three grown up children. We enjoy the countryside, especially exploring by bike and foot with our faithful dog at our side. I enjoy a variety of creative interests and follow a strong faith.
Your first session lasts one and a half hours and takes the form of a discussion to help ascertain any issues that may be bothering you, as well as to establish where your exact needs are. I have a real desire to see clients benefit from using their own mental resources to effect well-being and desired change in their lives. All therapy is confidential and aimed meeting needs of the client.
