About me

I offer confidential support in a comfortable and relaxed environment. I work with each individual or couple to support them to overcome whatever prevents them from living the life they choose. I have been working in related fields for many years and have had a private counselling, hypnotherapy, psychotherapy and coaching practice since 2001. I also work in Employee Assistance for various companies. I am accredited by NLPtCA and am registered by the UKCP.

I support clients with a range of issues including controlling stress, changing behaviour, overcoming depression and anxiety, improving health and wellbeing, planning, building confidence, overcoming phobia, recovering from trauma, managing eating disorders, creating greater health and wellbeing. I also specialise in a form of therapy for ME, Chronic fatigue and other mind body illness. I offer long and short term work and allow clients to space appointments as best suits them.

I aim to offer a safe, secure, relaxed and confidential environment. I offer clients access to telephone and e mail support between sessions as well as providing notes to support clients on their journey.
