Welcome

I am a qualified and registered hypnotherapist and have a special interest in anxiety issues along with OCD, PTSD and phobias.  I also provide therapy for many other situations/conditions and it is always worth asking if your particular problem/issue/condition is not mentioned on these pages - most, if not all, psychologically based problems can be helped with hypnotherapy, mindfulness or coaching while nutritional therapy can help with a large number of physical problems as well as weight issues and, as an aside, even self esteem and confidence.

My qualifications and professional body memberships are given below.

I am 58 years old and have been divorced and re-married.  With 4 children (2 from each marriage) and 6 grandchildren I feel I have plenty of life's experiences that give me some insight into others problem times - my life has not been without its own painful and stressful times.  I was a smoker for nearly 30 years and have good insight into the difficulties of giving up smoking (as I prefer to say - becoming a non-smoker) and also developed a keen interest in diet and nutrition as I sought to maintain a level of physical fitness as I have grown older.

Having also worked as a support worker for young, unattended asylum seekers I also have insight into loss - many of these people have suffered deep losses with PTSD and chronic anxiety disorders being common.  Additionally, I like to think I have few prejudices (anyone who thinks they have no prejudice is fooling themselves :) ) but am constantly checking myself in this regard.  For example I have plenty of experience relating to people of all sorts - from hospital consultants to homeless people, from people with learning difficulties to university lecturers and from gay people to Muslims to people from Somalia, Syria or Ethiopia.  I am comfortable in many situations.

I am happy to declare I have had substantial therapy myself over many years (any good therapy training will insist on self therapy) and I believe this (along with my advancing years!) gives me solid understanding of most psychological difficulties and also how to maximize ones happiness ethically.

I will also note that my on diet is a vegan one - there is a separate page under extras for more information on veganism if you are interested - I do not push the issue and will say no more about it other than in that specific page.  Within my nutritional therapy process I do not impose a vegan diet on clients although I do encourage reducing meat and dairy intake and increasing fruit and vegetable intake for health reasons.

I hope that gives a brief outline of who I am and look forward to hearing from you should you have any questions or would like to book some therapy.
