About me

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.
