"For time and the world do not stand still. Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past, or the present, are certain to miss the future.”

"There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.”
Quote from Hamlet by William Shakespeare.

My approach is to enable the exploration of feelings and thoughts about oneself and relationships with others, and to understand the connection between how our past experiences and our current behaviours may result in negative outcomes. The process is collaborative, based on respect, and is non-judgemental.

I have been a qualified counsellor for 19 years’ and am committed to providing a confidential, supportive, caring non-judgemental safe environment where together we can explore the issues you are experiencing. I may use different therapeutic interventions based on my training to ensure that my client(s) gain the best possible outcome – these interventions can include the use of EFT (emotional freedom technique) relaxation techniques and NLP.

Whilst acute pain is a normal sensation triggered in the nervous system to alert you to possible injury and the need to take care of yourself, chronic pain is different. Chronic pain persists. Some people suffer chronic pain in the absence of any past injury or evidence of body damage. However, the good news is that people with chronic pain recover, especially if they understand the root cause of pain and the many varied steps to take to undo what chronic pain has done…and most importantly get your life back! My Recovery Programme is non-invasive, holistic in its approach which deals with your physical and emotional wellbeing and has proven to work for people who suffer from chronic pain.

EFT (acupoint) Tapping is fast becoming one of the most important breakthroughs in the area of psychology in the last century; it is also being termed the ‘modern miracle’. When used properly it can rapidly relieve emotional disturbances and other physical symptoms in minutes with long lasting results. Some are understandably sceptical of the validity of these techniques. Such doubts always accompany new breakthroughs and innovations. But the proof is in the dramatic results, and, not surprisingly, many therapists are drawn to the speed and effectiveness. EFT is simple, relatively painless, and quick and can be self-administered. Furthermore, it can provide relief for an extraordinary range of problems.

NLP is often referred to as ‘the software for the brain’. Changing our mental programmes leads to positive changes in how we think, feel, act and live. Changing how we think, changes what we think. Neuro – refers to the brain, our neurology, our nervous system that links our body and mind, through which our experience is processed through our five senses. Linguistic – refers to the language we use, including non-verbal and self-communication. The way we perceive life is coded through language. Programming – refers to the ability to discover, utilise and change the ‘programmes’ or repeated sequences of thoughts and behaviours that run our lives. So, NLP is about connection for our thoughts, speech and actions are what connects us to others and the environment around us. People have used NLP ideas throughout the ages...it did not spring into being in the early 70's with Richard Bandler and John Grinder, when the name was invented. The ancient Greek's talked about sense experience and Aristotle talked about submodalities in all but name when he referred to the quality of the senses. After all, it was Aristotle who said "Nothing enters the brain but through the senses".

As a registered member of BACP no: 526817 I undertake regular clinical supervision in accordance with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy BACP ethical framework I am fully insured to conduct the therapy as outlined and CRB checked. I am also committed to on-going personal professional development (CPD) in order to keep my knowledge and skills up to date.
