I am an experienced UKCP Registered Psychotherapist and Hypnotherapist. United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) are the main governing body for Psychotherapists in the UK. I am also a member of the National Register of Hypnotherapists and Psychotherapists (NRHP).
I have been practicing since 2007 and use an integrative approach to therapy, combining hypnosis with cognitive behaviour techniques (CBT) to help clients identify the underlying cause of presenting symptoms and change unwanted patterns of behaviour. I provide an empathic and non-judgemental environment for a client to be able to explore difficulties in their life.
I have experience of working with a range of stress related problems including depression, anger management, anxiety and General Anxiety Disorder, trauma/PTSD, bereavement, weight management, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, pain relief, relationship issues and low self-esteem. I have also completed research projects on both performance anxiety and OCD.
I am trained in Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), an effective and efficient treatment for trauma, anxiety disorders, depression, PTSD and phobias. I am a member of the EMDR Association UK & Ireland.
Having worked for an NHS drug and alcohol service for seven years, I have also received extensive training in drugs awareness and harm reduction, helping those suffering from the effects of drug addiction. I also have a very effective smoking cessation technique, combining hypnosis with NLP, that provides the individual with a new strategy to stop smoking for good.
I also provide support for couples preparing for fertility treatment, pregnancy, birth and parenthood through the use of hypnosis by helping to restore the natural balance in the body.
I am passionate about the work that I do and believe that, given the right support, everyone has the ability to heal and live a happy and fulfilled life. I practice out of a very comfortable private office in Sutton Coldfield and Harborne Complementary Health Clinic and would be happy to answer any questions that you may have with regard to starting therapy.
