Seeking To Resolve Your Difficulties?
Do you want to make changes to improve your life?
If you're reading this, you are probably feeling stressed or held back by issues, and are keen to improve how you both feel and function in life?
My particular expertise is in working with abuse and trauma, helping you to free yourself from the very disturbing effects of these issues. I'm trained to use EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) as a standalone psychotherapy and have been accredited by the EMDR Association of UK & Ireland to do so.


However, in addition, as an accredited and UKCP registered Psychotherapeutic Counsellor I work with many other difficulties which you might bring. I utilise a wide variety of other methods I have at my fingertips, to help you reduce or completely clear your problems. My uniquely personal approach has evolved and been refined over 30 years and is still open to further change. My approach is underpinned by a calming and respectful relational style.



I integrate NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming), CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy & Mindfulness), EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing), Systemic Couples Therapy & other more creative processes in my extensive skills set. I can integrate these methods to help you raise your self-awareness and to help you gain positive learning and self-understanding, with an eye to both inner and outer change.
Thus my resources for facilitating change are wide and varied.

My focus is in creating a truly holistic environment in which to help increase your inner sense of well-being, both in one-to-one work, couple work and also in small, personal groups of up to 4. Well-being means many things to many people, but for me includes a positive sense of self and a sense of satisfaction in life and for some, a sense of safety and wonder at the power of the ever-present, invisible vibrational field around us.

My experience includes running Co-Counselling Groups, Counselling Skills Training Groups and other personal growth groups focussing on Parenting, Communication Skills, The Mind-Body Connection & also Developing a Sense of Soul. My focus now is in creating a holistic approach to improve your sense of Well-Being.

Of relevance too is the fact that for the last 10 years I have specialised in providing Short-Term Counselling for employees nationwide whilst working for various Employee Assistance Programmes in different capacities. I am thus aware of many of the issues facing individuals in the corporate world and how personal issues may impact upon your working life.
