About Me

I believe that, providing I am not wasting your valuable time and money during sessions, it could be helpful for you to know a little about me before making an appointment.

I have spent the majority of the last 30 years working in the fields of both education and the NHS. I have experienced first-hand many of the things clients come to see me for today such as grief/loss of a loved one, stress and anxiety both at work and at home, depression in its various forms and worked through periods when I suffered panic attacks and loss of confidence.

I spent many years trying to find ways to overcome these problems because they had a negative impact on every part of my life. I am not ashamed to say I have utilised seeing a therapist several times when things have been tough, in fact I see it as strength to ask for help. I found my way through difficult times with the therapists help, allowing me to have a better understanding of myself and my feelings which has made a big difference in how my life has progressed.

Becoming a counsellor was a natural path for me to follow and over the years I have attained certificates and diplomas for various modalities culminating in a Bachelor’s Degree in Person-centred counselling.

Whilst studying I developed an interest in hypnotherapy as there are many similarities to counselling and when a sudden fear of flying stopped me enjoying holidays abroad I decided to try hypnotherapy for myself and it changed my life. It seemed so simple that I didn’t believe the effects could last … but they have. I became so fascinated by the power and effectiveness of hypnotherapy that I decided I wanted to qualify myself which I did along with becoming an NLP Practioner.

I am proud to say that I have been able to help myself and others make the move forward in improving their lives due to counselling and or hypnotherapy. All the treatments I offer are tailored to the individual as we are all different.
