About me

  I am a holistic therapist, and use Ericksonian Hypnotherapy, Regression, Journeying, Psychotherapy, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Integrated Eye-movement Therapy (IEMT). All of these are in consideration of the mind-body interaction.

I have beeen in practice since 2014 and progressively refresh my expertise with Continuing Professional Development (CPD) courses, adding new modalities and techinques to my repetoire. I am currently studying Biodecoding so as to better understand the metaphor of our organs.

    I suggest an informal discussion at the beginning, and then further sessions can be scheduled. A free 30 minute consultation for new clients can be followed by a one hour session. Depending on the complaint or issue, there could be a recommendation for on-going sessions, or there could be a satisfying resolution in only a few sessions.

Training, qualifications & experience

I achieved a University Degree (1984) in Psychology and Early Childhood Education; worked with Jungian and Freudian aspects of cognition and interpretation; did my practical at a school with Montessori techniques; and also delved into the philosophy of Steiner Education. Since then I have continued to polish my skills and develop further insights into Psychotherapy and kindred processes.

My Hypnotherapy studies (2013) were with Roger M. Sleet [BA(Hons,Psych)], founding member of INT (Institute of Natural Therapy) in Dorset, and author of "A Guide to Professional Hypnotherapy". Mr Sleet, when actively practising in the 80's, had worked effectively with cancer patients, and his unique techniques and experiences were passed on to his students at the Institute of Natural Therapies (The Beltain Centre) in Dorset. Three years later, I completed my Advance Studies in Hypnotherapy with Karen Bartle.

Intrigued by the interplay of religion and the Psyche, I practice & study Buddhism; but also study other variations, such as Zen, Yoga and Sufism. My self-studies in religion and spirituality have given me an increased understanding of the metaphor and allegory, which is a very significant aspect of the way I work with hypnotherapy. In delivery, I use a Ericksonian approach of guided dialogue.


I continue to enhance my skills through Continuing Professional Development (CPD), and through my experience with clients and self-studies on numerous subjects. Over the past five years, having completed further training with Hypnotherapy for Habits and Addictions (CHAH), Hypnotherapy for Depression (CHD), Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Integrated Eye Movement Therapy (IEMT).

Member organisations

GHR

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a hypnotherapist's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the hypnotherapist to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
