About Me

Hi there. If you’re looking for help and support online or via the phone you have definitely come to the right place.

I am an experienced NCS Accredited  Counsellor, NLP Coach and Clinical Hypnotherapist.  I offer totally secure sessions either using Skype, WhatsApp, Zoom, FaceTime or Telephone and I’m fully trained, DBS checked and insured.

I work in an integrative person-centred way so as well as Talking Therapy (Counselling) I also use NLP coaching, Mindfulness or CBT techniques where appropriate to offer you a very effective tailor-made package just for you and dependant upon what you’d like to work on.  This will leave you with enhanced self-awareness, personal growth and resilience as well as making the changes you are looking for. Moving forward, you learn skills and tools so that you cope better and manage life challenges with increasing ease, building your resilience all the time.

Many of my client’s have problems with anxiety either foremost or underpinning their worries. Depression is another key issue and both Anxiety and Depression can be mixed together. Other clients have unhelpful habits, life issues, phobias or fears, relationship or gender worries they want to deal with, or physical issues such as pain or illness.

Here’s to your much brighter future.  I look forward to working with you.


My Qualifications

My Experience

I originally started my Psychotherapy career with Degree study in Psychology (BSc Hons 1st Class) and at the same time a 2-year Psychodynamic Counselling Skills course.  Around that time I also trained in the Police Force as a Critical Incident Debriefer and worked with Police Officers and Staff experiencing trauma.

Later on, I also added a Diploma in Adult Counselling and Certificate in Children Counselling to my portfolio, whilst on 1 year placement with both Age UK (counselling for the over 50s) and Place2Be (Counselling for young children in the school setting) and I worked for a year at Benenden Hospital offering Low Intensity CBT to clients.

I followed this training with Diplomas in both Clinical Hypnotherapy and also NLP Coaching, which I then put into use when I started my own very busy Private Practise in 2017.

My Approach

My approach is underpinned primarily with Person-Centred Talking Therapy which has been shown in much research since the 1960s, to alone be very successful in bringing about change and improvements.

However I also have a huge toolkit to add to that, drawn from Psychodynamic theory, NLP, Hypnotherapy and CBT.

As we work together, and where I see that a particular technique might really benefit you, I would describe it to you and ask if you would like to try it.  The choice is always in your hands as to how your therapy proceeds.
