About me

Do you sometimes feel that you are worthless or not good enough, or that you are somehow going to be found out? Do you find that you easily put others needs above your own? Would you like to have more confidence and self belief in who you are and what you do?

Just imagine for a moment what your life would look like if you did feel more confident about who you are.  Imagine what life would look like if you changed these negative beliefs for new empowering positive beliefs. A belief were you valued yourself for all that you are, a belief knowing that you are good enough exactly as you are.

I can help you feel and experience all of these things and more allowing you to live the life that you want to live, easily and effortlessly. I work within many different areas but specialise in working with clients who experience anxiety, depression and low self-worth.

I offer a safe, confidential and supportive environment where you can explore and make sense of any challenges you are facing. I am highly trained using modern fast and effective psychotherapeutic techniques that will help you uncover what it is that is holding you back so that you can take control of your life with greater focus, energy and confidence.

Working with me

I view every clients as an individual with your own unique experiences, and so my therapeutic approach is tailored to suit your individual needs rather than being prescriptive.

I have found that incorporating hypnotherapy into a session, allows us to get to the root cause of any issue within that session. It allows us to see how connections made from experiences in your past, affects your life now and with this knowledge we are then able to work together on changing self limiting beliefs by replacing them with empowering positive beliefs.

Working in this unique way will give you control over your life, understand yourself and your emotions better and allow you to maintain a healthier way of thinking that will leave you feeling empowered to navigate any challenges that you meet.

I absolutely love what I do and have spent a number of years understanding and finding the best way of offering clients the best form of therapy to help you achieve your goals in a much quicker time frame.

Here's what some of my clients have said about their experiences of therapy

"Brid helped me through a really difficult time in my life. I feel that without her I wouldn’t feel as strong and positive about my future as I do now. In our sessions she was encouraging and patient. We talked through my problems and how best to address them. I found her techniques really helped me in delving deeper into myself and yet also they helped in how to overcome the issues at hand. She will always be my first 'go-to’ therapist" S.R – Brighton

                                  *************************************************

"I recently had a session with Brid as I had an underlying feeling of not being good enough.  Brid made me feel entirely at ease, and I felt safe during the session.

I saw an immediate impact following the session.  My confidence received a boost.  I started a new job and I felt sure and certain of myself during my first week. I asserted myself into the role and didn't have any of the hesitancy that I would have previously.

I also started to see links between the challenges in my life and to understand why I struggle with certain things. It's helped me to make sense of some of the confusion I had and I see things more clearly.  I don't feel paralysed by indecision anymore.

I'd like to do another session in a few months and see if I get another "power boost." I would definitely recommend working with Brid.  You will see real benefits" L.B - London, E10

                                  *************************************************

"I went to see Brid to work on my anxiety. I was attracted to Brids work because of the possibility of addressing problems directly and getting quicker results.

The session with Bríd was such an amazing experience. Throughout I felt totally in control but my mind was able to focus on possible causes of my anxiety. I've never had this sort of clarity before. The whole time I felt safe and totally relaxed. The days following were so much calmer and less fraught for me and listening to the recording helps me to refocus and use the tools I have gained since having our session. I'm confident that this will keep me on my journey towards an anxiety free life. It's totally within my power now.

Brid explained everything so well and I am absolutely delighted with the results so far.
My awareness has been awakened and I am confident that I have left many old habits feelings in the past, where they belong." S.S - London, E17

                                  *************************************************

“I had therapy with Brid and I found it such a release to be able to say everything that was on my mind in a totally supportive atmosphere. Brid helped me understand better the possible causes of the negative thought processes that had begun to overwhelm me, to deal with difficult situations in a more constructive way, and to be more accepting of myself. Change didn't happen overnight, nor was it dramatic. Rather, one day I had a moment of realisation that I was feeling better and stronger emotionally and that this process of change had actually been happening bit by bit, over the course of my sessions. Thanks to Brid, I'm feeling better able to deal with what life throws at me” J.W – London E17

                                  *************************************************

"The hypnotherapy made a very deep impact on me. It was not intrusive or invasive in any way. It didn’t feel like anything was being done to me, but rather that Brid was facilitator, giving me the time and space to focus inwards on my own mind in a new way.

It unlocked access to memories I didn’t think I had, but unlike trying to remember the past, it placed me right there. It wasn’t simply remembering how I felt; it was a first-hand tangible feeling, very crisp and clear, unlike the patchy and foggy fragments of my conscious memories. It was a very powerful experience, which left a strong and lasting impression on me; helping me understand my sense of being in the world and where that comes from. " S.A - London, E10

                                  *************************************************

“Brid is friendly but professional, I felt at ease from very early on. She guided and supported me through-out my time with her and taught me useful/effective techniques to deal with my anxiety. My sessions with Brid have been brilliant! They have helped me accept myself, understand my thoughts and feelings from a different perspective and to accept them and move on. Throughout my sessions with Brid I have grown in confidence hugely. Thanks for all of your support Brid!” D.R - London E10

                                  *************************************************

"Recently Brid guided me through my first ever hypnotherapy exercise – Upgrading the Child. We had agreed in a previous session that hypnotherapy would be a productive way for me to move through a particular issue. She gave me detailed information about what the exercise would entail, how long it would take, and helped me to feel comfortable about the process. On the day of the session I felt anxious about proceeding, however, Brid again explained the process step by step, and above all, that I couldn’t possibly get it wrong and that there were no ‘right’ answers.

I am so pleased that I went ahead with it. Brid used a simple, yet effective method to put me into a deeply relaxed, meditative state. She guided me through the exercise gently and skilfully as I engaged with my child self and with other significant players in my journey. Brid held the space well so that I felt safe and able to fully sink into and experience my feelings. There was a portion of the exercise which was used to reinforce a positive relationship with myself which felt incredibly powerful, and when the exercise was brought to closure, I was so moved, and felt so free, that I was unable to speak, and shed many, much needed tears. I left the session feeling light and overwhelmingly good.

I feel so grateful to have been guided through this experience. During the week following the session I realised that I was feeling greater connection with my inner child, much more at peace with myself. I felt that the fractured feeling I had been living with was not as prominent, as if a great and deep alignment had taken place. I cannot recommend Brid’s skill as a therapist highly enough. I would happily recommend Bríd to anyone who may benefit from connecting with, and integrating their child self. Having had this experience, I now want hypnotherapy all the time! For everything!!" A.B - London E17

                                  *************************************************

“ From the moment I met Brid I felt comfortable with her, she is very warm and immediately makes you feel quite relaxed. I have had counselling previously, which I found helpful, but I felt that I progressed more with Brid, she enabled me to empower myself in many different ways and deal with some difficult issues.  Brid was always professional, but incredibly supportive, caring and understanding. We still keep in touch and if I need any counselling in the future I will not hesitate to see Brid again”.M.D - Hackney.

About Me and The way I work

I work fast within each session. I make sure that we get right to the core of your issue and begin the healing process straight away.

We discuss particular moments in your life where limiting beliefs and negative patterns of behaviour were created. I help you to transform those belief patterns to create new, healthier patterns of thinking that help you feel empowered and in control of your thoughts and emotions. I do this by helping you to re-frame the beliefs you created. Changing how you think and feel, changes your behaviour which ultimately changes your life.

I am a highly trained and experienced BACP registered Integrative Psychotherapist. This means that I use a combination of Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Hypnotherapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), working with your mind to create desired lasting changes in the form of new perceptions, beliefs, emotions or behaviours. The way that I work is fast, highly effective with long lasting permanent changes!
