My Expert Service
I offer compassion and care in helping you overcome your problem. Not all issues require the removal or treatment of everyday stressors or the routine ups and downs life brings. Motivating a healthy pursuit of positive emotions which in the field of Positive Psychology is refered to as the 'active cultivation of positive emotions' is a significant contributor to our well-being. This blended with appropriate therapy aimed at the individual's needs is integral to my approach. I have over 30yrs experience and expertise in numerous therapeutic approaches eg. Cognitive Therapy, Hypnosis Based Cognitive Therapy, Empathic Counselling, Drug & Alcohol Counselling, Eye Movement Desensitiation Reprocessing, Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy, Humour, Hypnosis, Behaviour Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Strategic Therapy, and Client Centred therapy etc. I have trained/supervised numerous other health professionals. My expertise has been with all varieties of adult problems/diagnoses as well as running group therapy programs and providing life coaching.
