Usually people come to therapy because there is an aspect of their life which they don’t feel good about. As I see it, the purpose of therapy is to enable people to sort out the issues which they are not happy with.
How does therapy work?
In my approach, therapy is a relaxed conversation, held in a relaxed environment which enables people to move forward with the issues they want to resolve. Typically people find it interesting and enjoyable.
Other pages on the web site give more detail on issues that I work with, and approaches that I use.
My interest in Therapy started when I was a volunteer with the Samaritans in the 1970s. Since then I have trained in and worked with a wide range of therapies. I also worked on a voluntary basis, as a facilitator and trainer, with The Wider Circle, an organization which supports people in resolving the effects of past traumas and moving forward with their lives. I started my therapy practice in 2000.
I have been coaching people most of my life and provided coach training to both businesses and to trainee coaches. I supervise both therapists and coaches.My therapeutic qualifications include DHP, AdvDHP, Master Practitioner NLP, Member of the General Hypnotherapy Register and of the National Register of Hypnotherapist & Psychotherapists. I am a former Chairperson of the Clinical Hypnotherapy & Psychotherapy Association. My Educational Qualifications include BSc, MA, & PhD
