I work with an almost inexhaustible variety of client issues from personal development, sport and academic performance, stress management, fears, phobias, addictions, surgical and dental anxiety, confidence issues, pain control, women’s health. I also work with children, teens and young adults, helping them to find resources within themselves in order to cope better and to overcome any issues that may be hindering them or holding them back.
I integrate a variety of theoretical perspectives to therapy according to individual needs with modalities such as:
Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy
Solution Focused therapy
EMDR / EFT
I have many years of experience helping clients living with chronic pain, illness and disease, reducing stress and anxiety helping them cope better with medical procedures, tests and results, to manage pain and to encourage the body's natural healing process.
My surgery and dental programmes are ideal for those who would like to be actively involved in their treatment and who would like to maximise and help speed their own natural recovery process.
