Based in clinics in Wellingborough and Thrapston, I am a registered member of the Human Givens Institute and offer brief, solution-focused therapy for a range of issues including anxiety, depression, anger, stress, behaviour, trauma and phobias including PTSD, OCD, panic attacks, sleep disorders, eating disorders and confidence.
I work with children, young adults and adults to find out what's behind their current challenge and agree a goal and strategy for positive and permanent change. I use hypnotherapy when appropriate to address fears and traumas which are holding the person back in their current life, as well as using it to build confidence and reinforce the resources they already have. I work with whatever media is appropriate for the person including drawing, play-doh and clay modelling, physical movement and many other creative methods.
I am available in the daytime, evenings and Saturday morning.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a Human Givens Practitioner and can be found on their Register of Therapists.
In the past I have also worked with women and their partners to prepare for the birth of their baby as well as the early days as a new parent. I've delivered baby massage classes and appreciate the worries and joys of a new parent as well as how overwhelming this new part of your life can be.
I have also undertaken further training with the Foundation for Infant Loss to support families at times when a pregnancy ends before term, or with the loss of a baby during birthing or in their early life.
I like to be creative in therapy when appropriate, but will always work with what my clients are most comfortable with and progress at their pace.
