Previous working life
My previous working life was within the financial services industry, and with the pressures of work and life I became stressed, burned out and ill. I had to take time off from work to recover and the experience was like a wake-up call for me.
At this point, in my early fifties, I was introduced to hypnotherapy, NLP and Reiki through a friend. This helped enormously with my health and stress levels and when I later chose to terminate my contract within the financial sector, I decided on a complete change of career and began both Reiki and NLP Practitioner Training.
I was then directed towards hypnotherapy and psychotherapy and undertook that training thereafter.
Hypnotherapy, psychotherapy and NLP
My own experiences have shown me that constructive, long lasting change is achievable. This has made me passionate about guiding others towards constructive and lasting changes in their lives, and in helping to improve their wellbeing.
I use a combination of hypnotherapy, psychotherapy and Neuro-Linguistic Programming. I work in an accepting, genuine and empathic way and have a straightforward and practical style, which demystifies the therapeutic process and enables a deeper understanding of negative behaviour patterns.
I recently moved to North Somerset and have set up a Solution Focused Hypnotherapy, Psychotherapy and NLP Therapy Practice there.
My work experience includes having worked as a tutor for Bristol City Council running confidence courses and also coaching adults with issues such as low self-esteem, poor social skills or substance dependencies in finding their own tools and inner resources for positive change in behaviour, and in getting the life they want.
I undertake Continuing Professional Development (CPD) through regular training, and I therefore keep up to date with the latest relevant research. I have regular supervision sessions with an Association for Professional Hypnosis and Psychotherapy Accredited Supervisor.
