In my therapeutic approach I incorporate Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy, Mindfulness, Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Hypnotherapy and relaxation techniques.

Further information

Ultimately, we are all here to grow and learn from the experiences we create with others through our thoughts, emotions and actions. In order to enjoy life and to be happy we need to be free to express ourselves creatively, to value ourselves and to connect with the world around us.

For many of us the ability to achieve these things is blocked by trauma, grief, loss and emotional disturbance. These blockages, though hidden, manifest as depression, anxiety, anger, phobias, addictions and many other physical, emotional and mental health problems.

However, we have within us the ability to heal. Counselling can help us to access this ability and once again reconnect with the joy of life and express ourselves freely.
