Being Well Together/Think Talk TogetherKey Worker CounsellingMates in Mind

I successfully qualified as a Psycho Therapeutic Counsellor & clinical hypnotherapist after achieving a Bachelor of Science Honours Degree in Psychology. Whilst studying I worked full time for Norfolk County Council in a social care team as an Occupational Therapist Assistant supporting families with children with disabilities. I have had many years experience as a practitioner including my last job role, before becoming self-employed, working for a private company supporting children with development trauma, sensory processing and attachment difficulties.
Over the years I have developed skills that have supported many people, and empowered parents to manage difficulties they face on a daily basis. I pride myself on building a good rapport with the children and adults I support and feel this is essential to a successful outcome to therapy. Therapy is a two-way process, client and therapist working together, I guide the client in the direction they wish to go and tailor the therapy around individual needs. My therapeutic approach will enable re-framing of thought processes and promote positive thinking and changes.
In today’s society, mental health is one of the most growing public health concerns, with 1 in 4 of us suffering from anxiety or depression at some point in our life. It is more common than we care to discuss.
A few years ago, I personally experienced difficulties with anxiety and depression which caused me to have some time off work. In the hunt in finding a solution, I researched methods online and found myself reading about the positive affects of hypnotherapy to support anxiety and depression. I decided to try it and had six sessions and haven’t looked back since! I also practice Mindfulness and understand the power of relaxation. I've also learnt how to respect myself improved my self belief!
I support children, teens and adults with therapeutic approaches such as, Counselling, Hypnotherapy, Integral Eye Movement Therapy (IEMT), Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), Calm Kids Approach, Tapping Solutions and Mindfulness. Having a good sense of self is crucial to happiness; by reading this you’ve taken the first step to supporting you or your child! I will guarantee empathy, with a non-judgmental attitude, providing you with the right way forward to making positive changes. In my therapy sessions, we’ll work together to solve current problems and promote positive thinking and behaviour. I will help you re-frame your thoughts and responses and provide you with valuable tools to empower you to cope with life’s obstacles. I’m confident you’ll find my personalised Individual Therapy beneficial and inspirational.
