Psychotherapy & Hypnotherapy
I am an Emotional Archaeologist – I help people explore challenging emotions, behaviours and deep rooted issues
I help pride myself on providing long term practical strategies to support individuals, couples and families deal with challenging situations and return to a balanced mental wellbeing.
I am a qualified psychotherapist and hypnotherapist with over 22 years experience in working with adults, couples, teenagers and children.
I have a BSc (Honours) in Psychology, an MA in Creative Writing, a Diploma in Psychotherapy & Hypnotherapy and am an NLP Master Practitioner.
My additional training in body-psychotherapy, primal therapy, family constellations, sex and relationships therapy, trauma and Transactional Analysis has helped me combine a set of tools that deliver a highly effective integrated approach to therapy.
I also have a DBS Enhanced Certificate to work with children.
Work begins at the first session and you will most likely come away with some new insights and a few exercises to do prior to your next appointment.
I studied with the Open University, the National College of Hypnotherapy & Psychotherapy, who are UKCP registered, the Berne Institute and also in Sweden and Denmark.
As part of my continued professional development I am taking further training in Somatic Experience trauma therapy.
I am a member of the British Psychological Society and the National Register of Hypnotherapists & Psychotherapists.
I have appeared on the TV programme ‘Art & Soul’ about the use of hypno-pictography and ‘The Look of Lurve’ for ITV some years ago. More recently I have taken part in various radio talk shows for BBC Radio Kent and BBC Coventry & Warwickshire Radio.
I have written a therapeutic workbook for couples looking to improve their relationships (not yet published), and am currently editing my first novel – a psychological drama about how deceit, loss and betrayal are carried through generations, and how one woman fights to break free from the constraints of narcissism to find her identity.
