  • problem habits and addictions
  • depression and low mood
  • suicidal feelings and ideation

  • coping with chronic pain or health problems
  • lifestyle improvements

I also have experience of working with people dealing with mental health issues and am a voluntary counsellor for Mind, the mental health charity (www,

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and I specialise in Solution Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Transactional Analysis and Relationship counselling. The counselling methods that I use are systemic approaches, which means that they are helpful for working with individuals within the contexts of their environments and their relationships, but also in situations where there may be more than one person involved, for example working with couples, dyads, families, groups or teams.

I also hold a Diploma in Clinical Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy (DHP) and am a Brainworking Recursive Therapy™ (BWRT®), a Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and an Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) practitioner. I have completed specialist training in several areas including managing IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), coping with Tinnitus,  hypnotherapy for weight management, dealing with phobias and eliminating problem habits.

  • I am registered with the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (registration number 001154-L10). The CNHC is the government accredited UK voluntary register for complementary healthcare practitioners (approved by the Professional Standards Authority).

  • I continue to keep my skills up to date with further study and ongoing training; this, as well as my affiliation with BACP, NCH and CNHC means that I am able to remain current on regulatory matters pertaining to the use of Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy and to make sure that I am complying with all statutory requirements.

  • I follow the BACP Ethical Framework and am bound by both the NCH and the CNHC codes of conduct.

  • I have comprehensive liability insurance with a reputable professional insurance provider

  • Latest DBS enhanced certificate - Nov 2015
