About me

We all need a little help sometimes. It maybe that you’re struggling with a specific problem, it could be a death, divorce, change of job or simply feeling stressed and anxious. Any change can cause stress and anxiety, even when the changes in our lives are clearly for the better.

Maybe you just feel down and don’t know why, perhaps leaving the house takes every bit of energy you possess and getting through each day leaves you exhausted.

Or perhaps you keep engaging in destructive behaviours – drinking, drugs, or gambling, no matter how hard you try and stop. Maybe you don’t want to stop but know that you should. Sometimes destructive behaviours are about poor choices, engaging in destructive relationships or not being able to maintain relationships at all.

Whatever you’re going through, I can help.

I’m a Psychotherapist incorporating integrative counselling and hypnotherapy which means I use a variety of different skills and theories to help you.  I often use counselling and hypnotherapy together in one session to get results.

I have lots of relevant experience – I worked for 6 months in a crisis centre in Liverpool, I’ve also worked for 12 months in a primary school on the Wirral with Place2Be.  I have a successful practice dealing with adults and young people of all ages with a variety of different issues.

The information contained here is just a snapshot of what I’m about, please take a look at my website mindandbodysolutions-southport.com for more information about me and what I do and you can also read testimonials from client’s that I have been able to help

I offer face to face, online and telephone counselling sessions and am happy to do home visits at no extra cost. I hold an enhanced DBS certificate and am fully insured.

I can offer COVID19 compliant face to face appointments at consulting room at The Life of Riley Hypnotherapy on Station Road in Ainsdale.  The chairs are 2 meters apart and made of wipeable material.  They will be cleaned prior to your arrival.  Hand sanitizer will be available.  Please take a look at my website for photos of the layout. For face to face appointments I will require a non refundable deposit of £ 20 at the time of booking to cover the cost of the room.

I offer online/telephone appointments at a reduced rate.
