My qualifications include a level 6 Certificate in Therapeutic Counselling Supervision, an Advanced Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy, a diploma in Hypnotherapy and a Certificate in couples counselling. I am a Hypno-Oncology Practitioner with the Association of Hypno-Oncology.

Some of the areas I offer support in are: weight-management, smoking cessation, infertility, anxiety disorders and phobias, health anxiety, OCD, stress-management, pain-management, sleep disorders, motivation and confidence, relationship issues, bereavement, anger-management, PTSD, trauma, domestic abuse, childhood abuse, narcissistic abuse, personality disorders, public speaking and self-esteem, building resilience and cancer support.

Sometimes life can be particularly challenging and confusing, and you may feel that you can no longer cope. You may have reached a crisis point in your life and feel unable to live with the problem any longer. You may feel uncomfortable discussing these issues with friends or family or may have no-one you can talk to. Feeling alone can make the problem seem insurmountable and ultimately hold you back.

Today you have taken the first step to making positive changes in your life, the beginning of your journey into a less stressful and more promising and fulfilling future. Although change is necessary, it can also be overwhelming and finding the appropriate support and resources to assist you in working through your feelings and exploring effective and beneficial solutions to your problems will help lessen the load.

As an Integrative therapist, I combine my skills in psychotherapy and hypnotherapy, drawing on different therapeutic approaches such as CBT, Transactional Analysis, Mindfulness, Psychodynamic and Person-Centred Therapy. Transactional Analysis which informs my work, is underpinned by the philosophy that human beings have intrinsic worth and with the help of therapy, can develop greater self-awareness, heal from the past and live a more authentic life.

Therapy provides a warm, supportive and safe space in which you can freely express, explore and clarifying your feelings and thoughts in a relaxed and nonthreatening way.

As your therapist, I will help you make sense of your present by encouraging you to "unmuddle" your thoughts and feelings, enabling you to gain a clearer perspective of your life and goals. I may work Psychodynamically, incorporating Inner Child Healing work to help you understand how your past shapes and informs your present, your beliefs, your attachments style and the way in which you engage with yourself, others and your world, helping you to find healing from the past.

I may help you set realistic goals, make informed choices and explore useful tools and strategies to better cope. I may encourage you to evaluate unhelpful behaviours and habits, explore ways you can take positive action, maintain these positive changes and move into your future with a renewed sense of hope and purpose.

Therapy can support and encouraging you to discover and realise your true, unlimited potential.
