About me

I have over 40 years experience in the mental health field as practitioner and manager. I am accredited as a cognitive behavioural therapist (CBT) by the British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP) and as an EMDR Europe (UK and Ireland) Practitioner. I am also trained in therapeutic hypnosis by Michael Yapko (an international leader in the field) and hold a Certificate with distinction from the National College of Hypnosis and Psychotherapy.
I see many clients, both adults and children, suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (e.g. following road accidents), anxiety disorders (PTSD, panic, general anxiety (excessive uncontrolled worry), social anxiety, phobias, ocd, body dysmorphic disorders, eating disorders, relationship problems, depression, anger issues, smoking cessation, survivors of early abuse, confidence and low self esteem issues. EMDR and CBT are recommended by the National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) as the treatments of choice for PTSD, as well as the other anxiety disorders and depression. By applying the relevant evidence based approaches I find the success rate is very high and the treatment tends to be short term.
I have been a lecturer on the Postgraduate Course in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy at the University of Bolton.
