Hello, My name is Tam, welcome to my profile. I care so passionately about helping people who are struggling to find happiness due to problems in their life.

How Counselling can help you
Professional Counselling can help you feel valued, supported, and back in control. It gives you that time and space to explore and understand your problems more clearly and focuses on finding solutions for a happier and more fulfilling life. I will be with you every step of the way

Regression Hypnotherapy takes us back to earlier parts of our lives even as far back as birth. Using inner child work and positive beliefs to view and reframe events. Hypnosis is simply a deep state of relaxation which we all naturally do throughout the day (it’s that daydream feeling).
Hypnotherapy also has proven and great results for when working with weight loss including the gastric band hypnosis course. You can use hypnotherapy as part of counselling or as therapy all on its own. Hypnotherapy is 50 minutes long
FLEX & REFLECT: FLEX & REFLECT brings together both physical and mental health benefits by combining counselling, mindfulness stretching, deep breathing, and progressive muscle relaxation, releasing negative energy, improving flexibility and overall health and wellbeing.
