It may be that you're looking at my profile to find a therapist, for yourself or someone you know or it may be that you're interested in hypnotherapy, EFT or BWRT® in some way. Whatever the reason the reason you're here, welcome. I hope you find whatever you are looking for.
I use an approach that allows me to work with you, as an individual, hearing what your needs and goals of therapy are and journeying with you, to achieve them. It's important to me that we can form a successful working relationship, allowing you the time and space to get the best you can out of therapy. Any work we do, will be just about you, to meet your needs and will be in your best interests. This will mean that whatever brings you into my room will be key in the work we do together.
What is most important for me, when you come into my room, is that you feel comfortable and safe. For some people, that feeling of safety, security or trust can come quickly, for others, it can take more time, especially if you're feeling really anxious about some aspect of therapy, or even purely about coming. I work with a deep level of empathy and acceptance for you, as a person, and whatever it is that brings you to therapy.
For therapy to be beneficial for you, you really need to feel that your therapist is the right one for you; whatever that means to you. I believe that, alongside my training and qualifications, the way you feel in my room and the way we work together is key for your success.
For some people it is important to know some of the areas I work with. Previously, I have worked with a variety of people, including victims, survivors, perpetrators, professionals, retirees, students, and both men and women. I've worked with issues from anxiety to panic attacks, hyper-vigilance to trauma work, self confidence and self esteem issues to weight-loss, grief and loss, guilt and shame to anger, fears to phobias, smoking cessation sessions and other areas too. That said, everyone has slightly different needs from therapy, even if the reason someone comes is similar to that of someone I have worked with previously.
There is more information on my website about how I practice, about me, my qualifications, my therapy room and many other things too, please feel free to have a look.
If you do have any questions, or are interested in talking further, then please don't hesitate to get in touch, either by phone, e-mail or via my website.
(Please do note that I work during the day, so if you want to talk on the phone, evenings and weekends would give you the best chance of being able to contact me).
