About me

I have worked on line with clients for 6 yrs and my clients and I have found it very successful.

I view my work as my ' life's purpose, it is extremely important to me that my clients reach their goals and achieve a happier sense of well-being by the end of their therapy.
I find that many people are not able to attend counselling during working hours. I therefore, work in the evenings at the weekends.
I am happy to say that 95% of my clients are recommended to me by my previous clients.
I have become a bit of a study 'junky' and am always looking for and using better techniques,as the more we discover about the brain and mental health issues, the more we understand what are the best ways to help a client.
I have been studying Clinical Hypnotherapy, Counselling, Trauma Therapy , Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and EMDR amongst other models of therapy for 16 yrs.
I have been in Private Practice since 2007.
I work and charge by appointment session, not by time.
The average session time is approx 90 mins.
I am available for between session emergency text contact at no cost. I do my utmost to return texts etc. as soon as I am free to do so.

Training, qualifications & experience

I do extensive work with all levels and types of Depression, Anxiety and Panic Disorders and Issues.

I have worked for 3yrs with a Rehabilitation Clinic specialising in Addictions and Alcoholism, and before that with a group of carers helping them cope with Young Dementia Sufferers.

I do some work 'on line' when necessary, but usually, with clients I have met previously.

I hsve untertaken continual training for 20 yrs and have been in Private Practice for 11yrs.

I am about to obtain a Degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy and I also have a Post Graduate qualification (Masters level)in Traumatology.

I undertook training for 2 yrs to achieve a diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy,
I have studied for 2 yrs 6 months in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy,Solution Focus Brief Therapy, amongst other models.

Accessibility

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.
