About me

I am a qualified and experienced therapist, executive coach, organisational consultant and communications expert. Before training as a therapist I had a career in publishing and international relations. My work brought me into contact with people at all levels of business, across many countries, doing very different roles sometimes in extremely challenging environments. To be effective in my work, I had to learn how to listen without judgement, observe with an open mind, and form supportive, respectful relationships. All of these qualities I bring to my work as a therapist and coach.

I trained as a Gestalt counsellor because Gestalt is a very practical approach that prioritises the client’s experience, and encourages people to experiment with fresh ways of thinking and behaving.

I’m also an experienced clinical hypnotherapist with additional qualifications in NLP and Clean Language. I have personally experienced the success of these approaches in treating confidence and stress. My interest in hypnotherapy was sparked by being a client myself. I needed to overcome nerves about public speaking. After just two sessions I was confident enough to speak to large audiences. That experienced inspired me to qualify in Ericksonian hypno-psychotherapy (a more modern style of hypnosis). I then took specialised training in resolving trauma, anxiety and depression. With the Clean Change Company I have also completed extensive training in Clean Language and Symbolic Modelling, powerful communication techniques that are used in business coaching and within therapy. I’m one of only a dozen people globally qualify as a Clean Language assessor.

I am a member of both the coaching and psychotherapy divisions of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (www.bacp.org)and I follow BACP's code of ethical practice.

My qualifications include:

  • Post-Graduate Diploma in Gestalt Counselling
  • Post-Graduate Diploma in Therapeutic Hypnotherapy & NLP
  • Hypnotherapy Practitioners Diploma
  • Certificate in Group Leadership
  • Certificate in Clean Language & Symbolic Modelling
  • Qualifications in Mindfulness
  • MA (distinction) in English

My offer to you is a complete, safe, and supported experience that integrates the practical, emotional and spiritual aspects of your life. I work with a relational Gestalt approach, which is based on the relationship between the client and the counsellor. I have no stake in your decisions or fixed opinions on how you should lead your life. My role is to support you and your emotional and mental processes, remaining open, non-judgmental and genuine at all times.
