Thank you for visiting my website today.
A little about me.
I am very fortunate to have the best job in the world.
Everyday is different and the people I meet inspire and motivate me.
Before I became a therapist, I was the Director and Manager for a Care Agency.
Our main objection was to enable people to come out of hospital and be cared for in their own homes. I loved my job but unfortunately during this time I was diagnosed with M.E ( Myalgic encephalomyelitis), so working became impossible.
M.E is a debilitating (misunderstood) illness and I battled with this for a number of years. Eventually I did overcame M.E to recover fully and it still feels good knowing that I did that!
Towards the latter part of my illness, I started to consider 'what' to do next!
After attending M.E meetings etc, I decided that I wanted to train to be a Counsellor. I just felt that maybe I could help other people particularly those with M.E/CFS especially as I was getting better!
Whilst studying, I came across the Essex Institute of Clinical Hypnosis where I trained to be a Hypnotherapist. The training and my own journey of self discovery attributed to my overall recovery and I have never looked back.
A few facts if your interested…
I am extensively qualified to practice or assist with:
Hypnotherapy and Advanced Analytical Hypnosis, Psychotherapy, Counselling, Stress Management, Smoking Cessation and NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming). I was coached by Paul McKenna, John de Valle, Michael Neill and Dr Richard Bandler.
PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), PLS (Past Life Regression), EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), and Reiki.
I have studied Child Psychology and many other related subjects.
Bursary award adjudicator for the past 4 years.
I am most fortunate to be mentored and supervised by Terence Watts who is a senior Clinician and highly respected Author Worldwide.
I belong to the APHP which is a renowned Institute and I am committed to my Continued Professional Development.
DBS Checked and Insured.
