Personal profile:

I qualified as an RMN (Registered Mental Nurse) in the early 1982 and from the beginning of my qualified career I became interested in therapy approaches that help people help themselves rather than more traditional and medical focused mental health management and treatment.  During that time I trained in Behavioural Therapy (which developed into CBT), Family Therapy, and client centred and psychodynamic therapy before spending time in research and management.

However, it was only really after I left the National Health Service and started working in the private sector and undertaking training in hypnotherapy, EMDR, EFT and other techniques and became truly able to feel I could put the client first.

Since 1996 I have continued to develop my skills based on my perception of what will actually help clients get practical results and positive change. 

I practice without defining people by diagnosis and most of my clients do not take any tranquilisers or antidepressants, choosing instead to undertake psychotherapy and not only resolve their problems but increase their understanding of themselves and their circumstances and recognise their own strengths and positive qualities.
