Key Worker CounsellingMates in Mind

Hello and welcome to my profile. As an accredited Integrative Counsellor & an Emotional Freedom Practitioner – I use a combined approach of psychotherapy and bring together different elements of specific therapies. I am a Disordered Eating and Obesity Clinician, holding specialist qualifications for working with Eating Disorders, Anorexia, Bulimia, Binge Eating, Compulsive Eating Disorders and Obesity.

I have considerable success using Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) as it covers a huge range of Emotional, Health and Performance Issues and often works where nothing else will e.g. P.T.S.D., Trauma, Fears, Phobias (public speaking, heights, agoraphobia, spiders, etc.) & Addictions - as often Trauma and Addiction go hand in hand.

I am also one of the very few Practitioner’s in Northern Ireland trained in Matrix Reimprinting. MR is based on the quantum physics theory and is a powerful means to release what has happened in the past where we can change the energy with this amazing quick and effective tool.
The main benefits of Matrix Reimprinting are that is can be used without having to relive and reexperience trauma. It is a very easy to use technique and extremely gentle – it quickly finds core issues, related traumas and negative beliefs and can locate pre-conscious trauma (pre 6 years) often beyond our awareness and conscious memory.

My approach is fully holistic and incorporates psychological interventions with mind/body therapies to initiate and facilitate a process of positive change in all areas of life.

We value your privacy greatly and work within a strict set of Ethical and Professional guidelines. I also offer Skype/Zoom video link sessions.

Your safety and confidentiality are paramount.
