I have years of experience working with a wide range of issues. I particularly like working with issues of low self esteem, anxiety, phobias, relationships, menopause, anger, confidence, stress management, weight loss and depression.
I have trained in a range of therapies and like to be flexible so that clients receive what is most helpful and relevant to them in each session. I specialise in hypnotherapy and solution focused hypnotherapy and I back that up with psychodymamic psychotherapy and counselling.
I work from the point of view of being in the present and moving forward towards a client’s goals in the most effective way and yet looking back where necessary. This way one does not get stuck in months of self-analysis with perhaps slow progress. Yet it also does not dismiss past traumas and useful memories whilst making immediate and forward changes. I like to be flexible, incorporating elements of Transactional Analysis, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, NLP, integrative, humanistic, client centred, psychodynamic, holistic, Solution Focused Therapy, behavioural, analytical, eclectic, couple therapy, hypnotherapy and life coaching where helpful.
Low self esteem
I am a qualified therapist having graduated from The University of Warwick in 1984 with a 2:1 degree BA (Hons) and worked in commerce for several years.In my late twenties I entered the much more fulfilling world of therapeutic practice and trained in Oxford and then at St.Charles Hospital In London at The UK Training College of Hypnotherapy and Counselling in the early 1990s and graduated from The UK College for Complementary Health Care Studies in 1995.
In addition I took up advanced studies with the Clifton Practice Hypnotherapy Training and graduated with a Diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy. This exciting modern therapy not only incorporates all of the latest neurological research but also moves clients forward without having to reminisce about past events. We work towards client's particular goals with specific techniques in a positive, uncomplicated and gentle way. I am a member of the Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy.
Having lived and worked abroad in the USA and South Africa for several years I moved back to Oxford and Wantage and see clients in a peaceful, relaxing and comfortable environment. Therapy is private, non judgmental and in the strictest of confidence. Being in my early 60s I have substantial life experience that helps me to bring even more understanding and empathy to what my clients are going through.
