Training, qualifications & experience
In 1996 I began working in Ipswich, in adult mental health; assisting people to live independently in the community.
During the next thirteen years, as well as working one to one in Ipswich, Felixstowe and the rural areas of north Suffolk, I also managed a mental health project in Felixstowe. I then spent three years working in a Pupil Referral Unit with teenagers with mental health issues, during which time I continued my study and qualified as a Hypnotherapist and Counsellor, and began to build my practice. I have also worked as a corporate parent with adolescences in a residential setting, who had emotional and behavioural issues, and challenging behaviour.
I have an excellent understanding of mental health issues, not only from my career but from my own personal experience. I was diagnosed with depression in 1998, and was significantly affected by anxiety and panic attacks. This gave me a great insight into how this type of illness can seriously affect your life, and with the aid of Counselling and Hypnotherapy and a great deal of determination I was able to move forward.
The General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR) I am bound by their ethical framework for good practice in Counselling, Psychotherapy, and Hypnotherapy, and subject to the professional conduct procedure for the time being in force.
I have a background of working in adult mental health with both adults and children. I also have 6 years experience of working with adolescents within both an educational setting and within a local authority children's home.. More recently I have been working with Suffolk MIND.
