About Me

Hi there and thanks for looking at my info page.

I have over twenty years experience in successfully supporting people to reach their full potential across a wide range of differing needs and issues.

I specialise in anxiety related issues, including fears, phobias, panic attacks, general anxiety along with relationship, employment or personal issues – I work with you to overcome anything that stops you being who you want to be!

The success of my approach is that its  ‘Fast and Solution Focused’.  What this means is, whilst acknowledging and validating your experience or issues, our focus is on finding a fast, effective and lasting solution that sets you free from what holds you back.

Having personally experienced anxiety related conditions in my younger life, and from many years working with clients who had a range of health and anxiety related conditions, I  understand how you feel and look forwards to working with you to overcome issues that hold you back from being who you want to be.

I am trained in a variety of different talking therapies including Hypnotherapy, Cognitive approaches, NLP, One to One WSN Counselling & Mindfulness; these approaches enable me to offer a unique approach that is tailor made specifically for you, and not a one size fits all… its as unique as you are!

All appointments are totally confidential, and I abide by a strict code of ethics in our practice. NCP– CHNC Code of Conduct

I am fully accredited and registered with a range of professional organisation’s for your assurance, these include the Complementary and Natural Health Care Council and the National Council of Psychotherapy  Snr Acredd)

My Experience

I have over twenty years experience working across mental health and wellbeing services.

My previous experience includes both residential and mental health services management and development of public services through to working as part of the National Recovery Mental Health approach (star)

Throughout my experience I developed skills across range of different modalities and approaches, this has enabled me to work successfully with a extended range of client needs from common mental health issues and anxieties through to more complex mental health needs.

My experience included service development where I lead a range of person centred services from community health and wellbeing hubs, this enabled services to meet the communities needs in an informal rather than clinical setting.

Services included Counselling, Diet and Nutrition, Health and Wellbeing, CAB, Talking Newspapers for visually impaired, along with managing and developing a team of START Community Mental health Coaches.

I currently work in private practice utilising a range of skills that affect positive change through talking therapies.

I am also  a registered A1 Assessor for a range of health and social care qualifications and assess level four ABC awards in Counselling and Coaching.

My role also includes mentoring and mediation, business and service development and social enterprise

My Approach

As an integrated therapist, I regularly train in new and advanced techniques to update my skills in order to help effect the best and most positive  possible outcomes for my clients

Having worked in clinical settings I know only too well how stressful appointments can be and as such, my approach is informal and relaxed where the client leads their own journey.

Integrated therapy means that I utilise a range of different modalities or techniques to meet a clients needs, these range form traditional talking theraputic approaches through to some of the most current Hypno psychotherapeutic modalities – I have an array of different techniques to chose from or mix together when working to ensure that the approach I use is as unique as my clients needs.

I work with my clients as part of a team to find the most effective and lasting solution to their issue or concern -in the shortest time possible, this makes my approach very cost effective, reliable and successful
