I worked as a Midwife for 15years, leaving in 2019 to become a fulltime therapist. My journey into therapy began when I qualified as a Hypnobirthing Practitioner. The amazing changes I saw in my client’s anxiety levels, confidence and empowerment were a tribute to the self-hypnosis, relaxation, breathing and visualisation techniques I taught.
Throughout this time I became more interested in Hypnotherapy, to help clients with a variety of issues; culminating in commencing and completing a Diploma in Clinical Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy in 2015. During my training, I had the opportunity to complete a specialism in Weight Loss, as this issue is something I struggle with I embraced this and have continued to offer weight loss courses both groups and individuals. My enthusiasm for Hypnotherapy continued to grow as I witnessed the changes my clients brought about for themselves.
Often therapy is misunderstood and thought of as something that is done to them, rather than a therapist listening and guiding the client to an understanding of their issue and helping them to achieve positive behaviours to resolve and often eliminate the issue, freeing them to enjoy their lives. Fears, phobias, and behaviours can be debilitating, affecting everyday life, and limiting life opportunities and relationships. However, it became apparent that a ‘one size fits all’ approach did not help everyone.
Through One Born Without the Drama, my maternity focused business, I came across couples, men and women that had psychosexual problems that led to difficulties becoming pregnant and beyond. My interest in this subject grew as I was approached by more clients with a wide variety of issues, vaginismus, erectile and orgasm issues, enjoyment of sex and more. Sexual health is often overlooked; however, it can be the contributor or symptom of problems such as stress, low self-worth, confidence, and depression. To gain more knowledge in this field I trained to become a Psychosexual TherapistPsychosexual Therapy.; I now offer help to all, helping them achieve a fulfilling sex life.
Through my mix of clients, I also found couples contacting me on their Fertility and Infertility journey. Once again I wanted my sessions to provide accurate, informative and individualised therapy. I completed my training to become a Fertility Hypnosis therapist in 2019. Being knowledgable in specific areas is very important to me, so too are the ways in which I can help.
Each session with me will be in partnership with you, you lead the way, I use NLP, Hypnotherapy, Emotional Freedom Therapy and Coaching to help you find a way forward. I will strive to provide individual, empathetic client-based care, ensuring your thoughts and feelings are at the centre of the sessions I provide.
My work follows the ethical and legal guidelines of the GHR for which I am registered. If you are unsure whether therapy is for you I am more than happy to have a chat and answer any questions you may have in a free thirty-minute consultation.
