I began training as a counsellor and psychotherapist in the late 90’s whilst working in a large multi national aerospace company. Initially I managed major purchasing contracts and trained purchasing professionals and then moved into organisational change, facilitation and working with people facing redundancy or who were experiencing other difficulties in the workplace.

I chose to train in Psychosynthesis because although we were trained in traditional psychological theory and practice, overall there was a spiritual context. This means that the model for the work can also take account of personal difficulties that arise from spiritual wounding or confusion and frame the way forward in a way that speaks to the deeper part of who we are.

I have been in private practice since 2001 and for 3 years, specialised in working with women who had experienced domestic abuse. I remain very interested by the power dynamic in relationships and still work in the field from time to time. During this time I developed and delivered training about domestic abuse to the police, education and housing professionals, the NHS and professionals from the voluntary sector.

In 2009 I decided to go back to school and study clinical hypnosis. This has proven to be a fascinating study and I began to practice clinical hypnotherapy around May 2010. My reasons for doing this stem from a recognition that here is a treatment that could help with a range of issues and difficulties that are hard to reach in regular therapy. Clinical hypnosis seems to be a potentially effective treatment for anxiety conditions, phobias, chronic pain, weight gain, stopping smoking and physical ailments that stem from a disturbance in the autonomic functions of the body.

In addition to my private practice I run workshops, facilitated groups, team days, labyrinth walks and psychological programmes.
