About me

If you have found yourself here, I am guessing you will be looking at making a change in your life. I'm a dedicated psychotherapeutic counsellor and hypnotherapist deeply committed to guiding individuals on their journey towards healing and empowerment. With a holistic approach that integrates various modalities, I specialize in supporting clients dealing with anxiety, trauma, and a range of emotional challenges. I work with adults, children and young people.

About Me: I bring years of experience and a genuine passion for helping others to my practice. My journey in the field of psychotherapy and hypnotherapy has been enriched by a commitment to continuous learning and personal growth. I believe in the inherent resilience of each individual and the transformative power of therapeutic connection.

My Approach: In my practice, I embrace a holistic approach to healing, recognizing the interconnectedness of mind, body, and spirit. Drawing from a diverse toolkit of therapeutic techniques, I tailor my approach to meet the unique needs of each client. Whether it's traditional talk therapy, hypnotherapy, or somatic work, I create a safe and supportive space for exploration and healing.

Specialist areas: Anxiety and trauma are areas of focus in my practice. I understand the profound impact these experiences can have on one's well-being and offer compassionate support to navigate the journey towards healing. My somatic work with clients allows for a deeper exploration of the body's wisdom and the release of stored tension and trauma.

What to Expect: When you step into my therapy space, you can expect a warm, non-judgmental atmosphere where your experiences are honoured and respected. Together, we will explore the underlying patterns and beliefs that may be contributing to your challenges. Through gentle guidance and empowerment, I will support you in uncovering your innate resilience and strengths.

Take the First Step: If you're ready to embark on a journey of self-discovery and healing, I invite you to reach out and schedule a consultation. Whether you're struggling with anxiety, trauma, or seeking support for personal growth, know that you don't have to navigate this journey alone. Together, we can cultivate a path towards greater well-being and fulfillment.

Before training in Hypnotherapy and counselling I was a registered childminder for 11 years and as part of my training I also gained a CACHE level 3 certificate in working with children under the age of 18 in special needs, in particular emotional and behavioural difficulties.  I also worked at the local family centre for 18 months as a play and outreach worker.  All these years of experience helped me to build fabulous listening and empathetic skills.
