About me

Feel better fast. Working together with the client I use as few sessions as possible and aim to start making a difference from the first session. I use recognised brief, solution-oriented processes, offering fast, effective and practical solutions, while looking more to the future than the past.

I work mainly using the Human Givens approach and/or Advanced Cognitive Hypnotherapy as appropriate. Both methods quickly start to make a difference as they draw on findings about how people really function, and work with the innate qualities of human nature.

I help clients to identify where they have emotional or physical needs that are unmet and work with them to meet those needs by developing their individual resources in ways that are constructive and beneficial.

I use the elements of cognitive, behavioural, interpersonal & neural techniques which international studies have shown to be consistently successful.

It is not unusual for even longstanding issues to be improved relatively quickly and with little or no distress.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
