About me

I am a qualified Psychotherapeutic Counsellor, Hypnotherapist, Laughter Therapist, Reiki Healer, and EFT Practitioner. I offer these approaches either as part of an integrated programme or as stand-alone therapies. I believe everyone has a unique experience of life and, therefore, I tailor my approach to your individual needs. I provide a safe, confidential, and non-judgemental space, and work with clients to support them in their healing and personal growth.

Before practicing professionally as a Therapist, I worked for over 30-years in Education, and as an Actor and Director of Drama and Physical Theatre(s). I have experience of co-facilitating with the NHS on Stress Reduction courses and was awarded an International Certificate of recognition from LivingWorks, Canada, (July 2015) for my contributions to building Suicide-Safer Communities.

Alongside my private therapy practice, I have short term contracts with Sensory Soft Play, working with SEN children, and Butterflies, Children and Adolescent Therapy for Trauma and Abuse victims. I also practice in the voluntary sector for CRUSE Bereavement Care and Place2Be (Creative Arts Therapy in schools) and have a Therapeutic Theatre Company - Confianca Collaborative.

My areas of treatment include, but are not limited to, Anxiety, Depression, Phobias, Weight Loss, Addictions, Panic Attacks, Trauma, Pain, Anger Management, Stress, Low Self-Esteem and Confidence, and Enhancing Performance.

I am a Professionally Accredited member of both The National Counselling Society and The National Hypnotherapy Society. I am fully insured and comply with professional supervision requirements.
