Whatever your path through life, whether you are living with emotional wounding that goes way back, or dealing with more recent difficulties, or practical issues, my aim is to help you deepen your insight and expand your vision to find a more beneficial and meaningful way of living.
I offer counselling in a safe and confidential environment and tailor the sessions to suit your individual needs so if you do not feel ready to talk or find it difficult to open up there are other ways we can use. For example we can work with stones and shells, pictures and photos or writing and drawing. I can offer walking /talking therapy for those who prefer to talk outdoors, plus telephone or Skype sessions.
About me I have worked as a counsellor for almost twenty years: 15 years as a senior counsellor in the NHS as well as in the voluntary sector and in my own private practice. This has given me a wide breadth of experience so that over time my way of working has developed and changed as I made both personal and professional discoveries. This helps me to work effectively with people of all ages and concerns, however diverse. So although I am fundamentally an existential counsellor I draw on a range of different resources, gained through training and experience, to bring therapeutic help to whatever it is that has brought you to seek help.
I also offer sound therapy for healing and relaxation. This can help with high levels of stress, tension and anxiety and helps to lift the mood. If you would like to know more about gong immersion & sound meditation, do please get in touch.
Whether your concerns are psychological symptoms or something else that's hard to define, I am happy to talk with you about your needs. I try to be as flexible as possible to accommodate your availability.

NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) and HypnotherapyNLP Helps you to deal with the effects of past experiences.
It is particularly well known for its Phobia treatment, in many cases helping people to get rid of a phobia within hours or even minutes.
NLP starts from the belief that you are not broken and that you don't need to be “fixed” rather that your mind has learned, and is applying, a strategy that isn't suitable to the situation.
Starting with this belief, NLP attempts to exchange the processes that your mind is using for those used by people who are successfully achieving the same goals as you. If for example you are struggling with an addiction to something that is bad for you, NLP would say that the addiction strategy that you have is good but it's attached to the wrong thing, so why not make use of it for something positive, like eating healthily.
NLP is often used in combination with Hypnotherapy to great effect. Paul Mckenna, Derren Brown and Anthony Robbins are all well known proponents of NLP and regularly use NLP techniques.
Not to be confused with Stage Hypnosis, hypnotherapy makes use of the subconscious part of your mind to help you to make changes in your life.
It can be used to effectively deal with addictions, bad habits, anxiety, fears, phobias and to build confidence, motivation and many other positive traits.
Hypnotherapy makes use of your natural ability to move between altered states. This is something that everyone does all the time, if you've ever been travelling along a route that you regularly use and found that you can't remember the last few minutes - then you were in an altered state commonly known as “trance”.
The hypnotherapist will help you to shift into this altered state deliberately and then give carefully designed suggestions directly to your subconscious, to help you to make the changes you need.
