About me

Do you struggle to show your feelings? I provide a safe space for counselling and hypnotherapy to explore any worries or concerns that you have. I work using an integrative approach, meaning that I have a lot of experience in many different types of counselling & I tailor my approach to the individual & your unique needs. I consider you as the whole person & have you at the very centre of all my work. I specialise in working with anxiety,depression and people who have or are relatives of people with learning disabilities.

I have experience of working in social care with people who have learning disabilities and a background in nursing care. Counselling gives you the time & space you need to explore difficult issues within a strong therapeutic relationship & without fear of judgement with a completely neutral person.

I also work with depression, relationship issues, stress and generalised anxiety, grief, abuse, bereavement, anger, low self-esteem, family issues, self-defeating behaviours (such as habits) & goal achievement. I use hypnotherapy for relaxation, increasing self-esteem, improving sleep, reducing anxiety and to focus on goal achievement. Mindfulness can also be helpful with anxiety & giving coping mechanisms for panic attacks. Hypnotherapy can be very effective where CBT has not always helped.

I am registered & accredited with the National Counselling Society & the National Hypnotherapy Society & abide by their code of ethics. I do regular CPD training to keep up-to-date with the latest research & practice.

I would initially see you to assess your needs for us both to consider whether we can work together which would be at a reduced fee of £20 and then all following sessions would be at £35 for a 55 minute session. I do offer concessions please ask. I hope you will allow me to be part of your journey...& look forward to hearing from you...
