    My Mission

    I am making it my mission that I will bring to your counselling my complete honest attention, I will listen, not only with my ears, but also my head and heart.

    I will bring honesty and congruence and I will always be present in the room with you.

    I will endeavour to create a place of safety so you can unload, cry, shout, whimper about all the things and stuff you want to!

    All that is asked of you is that you are you and you want to use therapy to work through the tough times.

    I am also qualified to offer Hypnosis with my counselling work. What can hypnosis do?
    THiS......Focus attention on a problem issue, can be a state of relaxation, helps to process new learning, harnessing the mind-body connection, time distortion and critical factor bypass.


    “To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”
    ― Ralph Waldo Emerson

    What stops us getting therapy.......

    A well meaning friend once said to me,

    "Stop dwelling on the past, it is gone and done now, move on with your life, don't let others get the better of you! They are happy, go and be happy yourself, just forget about the past!"

    I was confused and a little annoyed, how can this be done, I remember thinking to myself, how do I do that because that isn't how I feel?

    If you feel like this, book in now!

    Depression, Anxiety, Trauma, Post Natal Depression are all treatable in their own right. For example, Post Natal Depression is a very serious illness and can develop rapidly post birth, without any prior suffering.

    Hypnobirthing is a great way to avoid Post Natal Depression, I have courses available for this and you can find out how to assist yourself with the birth of your baby. Hypnobirthing is a way of utilising what your mind and your body already have, and your baby too. Confidence in yourself and you body is very important.
