I am a qualified and experienced counsellor and hypnotherapist, I am a member of BACP. I have worked with DISC a drugs rehabilitation unit in Leeds and I also volunteer for BARCA Reaching out Counselling and psychotherapy services. I also hold a CRB certificate, which means I have been police checked to enable me to work with children and vulnerable adults. I hold relevant insurance.
As a counsellor I work with people to address and resolve specific problems, making decisions, coping with crisis, developing personal insights and knowledge, working through inner conflict or improving relationships with others within a safe space. I believe counselling provides an opportunity for people to live a more satisfying and fulfilling life.
With Hypnotherapy I can deal with certain issues in shorter periods of time, however counselling and hypnotherapy work well together to give an overall benefit to the client

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority.

Counselling is a form of psychological or talking therapy that offers people a chance to change how they feel and to like better. it provides a regular time and space for people to talk about their troubles and explore difficult feelings in an environment that is safe and free from intrusion, it is also confidential.
A person may come to counselling because of difficult experiences they have been through, such as a relationship breakdown, bereavement or redundancy. Or they may want help dealing with feelings of sadness, depression, anxiety or low self worth that doesn't seem to be connected to any particular event.
Counselling can also help you overcome mental health problems, such as depression or an eating disorder. even if you are already getting other kinds of help from a GP or psychiatrist. It can also help you come to terms with an ongoing physical problem, illness or disability. Counselling can also be a means of coping with physical symptoms or complaints that doctors can't alleviate. If your GP can't find a physical cause for your problems you may want to look further to see whether there is a psychological side to your symptoms.
Hypnotherapy attempts to address an individual's subconscious mind, using the power of suggestion for beneficial change. A hypnotherapist uses hypnosis to give relevant, positive beneficial suggestions to help an individual bring about the change they desire. Although hypnotherapy is not the same as sleep (the individual will still have awareness and control), hypnotherapists often require the individual to be in a deeply relaxed state to enable them to use their imagination fully. For this reason, it’s imperative that the individual feels completely comfortable with their hypnotherapist. Hypnosis is a different state of consciousness from being awake or asleep, and many people compare the deep, relaxed state of hypnosis to daydreaming.
Hypnotherapy can generally help with most emotional problems an individual is finding hard to cope with, and some physical problems can also be effectively treated with hypnosis too, such as IBS and insomnia. As a hypnotherapists I will often combine hypnosis with counselling techniques to benefit individuals. The techniques used will depend on the issue the individual is seeking help for.
