My Approach

We often have competing voices in our heads - some led by the rational, thinking self and others by powerful emotions. When life gets difficult, emotion can overwhelm us and block our ability to problem solve. When we can't find a way out of our problems, we become unable to meet our own needs and live a healthy, balanced life. Our work together will help you identify which voice you want to listen to, the resources you already have to draw on and what new skills you might develop in order to meet your emotional and practical needs.

About Me

Hypno-psychotherapy and Human Givens therapy combine tried and tested counselling techniques with guided meditation.

This approach works in many ways - for example to:

• defuse difficult memories and experiences
• overcome depression or anxiety
• manage pain
• break a habit
• face a challenge
• alleviate physical symptoms

Feel better fast..

My aim is to make you feel more positive and hopeful after every appointment. Although I will need to know something about your past to understand your present, our work together will always be about the future and how to help you feel better quickly as possible.

How therapy sessions work..

Each session begins with a focussed and practical discussion to help you work out what makes you feel better, create a road map to reach this and identify the personal resources you already have to get there as quickly as possible. This is then followed by a relaxing few moments of guided meditation to reflect on the ideas you have generated and imagine putting them into practice. This conversation with the subconscious strengthens the bond between conscious thought and instinctive behaviours, to get them working together again.

Learning skills and strategies..

Much of what we do together will be highly practical. You may learn how to manage your time or sleep better. Or you might develop strategies to help you quickly defuse stress or panic, be more assertive or simply to accept and tolerate uncomfortable thoughts and feelings, which make you unhappy.

Our body often reflects our emotional state..

Many of us have physical symptoms which are fuelled by our thoughts and feelings. This may be anything from a 'nervous tummy' (IBS) to joint or muscle pain, feelings of exhaustion, skin conditions or some forms of migraine. Sometimes our body is telling us something our mind finds hard to face. When the two are helped to connect and communicate with each other properly, solutions are found and symptoms often disappear.

Pain is often driven by powerful emotions such as stress, anger or depression. Learning to manage these feelings can have a huge impact on helping you feel more comfortable, so you can return to your normal activities.

Special Interests

Like all UKCP registered psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors I can work with a wide range of issues, but here are some areas in which I have a special interest or additional experience.

Anxiety is increasingly common, particularly in these turbulent times; immediate worries about our health and employment or wider concerns like the state of the planet. Living with anxiety is exhausting and takes away our ability to see the bigger picture and problem solve. By understanding more about how our brains process anxiety and by developing some simple strategies, we can do a lot to manage stress and worry, to feel better straight away.
Depression and anxiety often go hand in hand. Depression can arrive because we can't solve a problem, such as losing our job, a relationship or our sense of meaning and purpose. When we get really anxious we stop sleeping, which further weakens our ability to problem solve and deepens depression. This is a difficult cycle it can feel hard to step out of. In fact there are many highly effective ways to move depression on and which don't require medication. This may well include help to resolve the problem that made you anxious in the first place.
Trauma can come in many forms. It can come from one, possibly life threatening event or build up through multiple smaller experiences. If trauma remains active and unprocessed it can get in the way of our ability to navigate our way through life in general. There are safe and gentle ways to defuse trauma, without having to relive the experiences in any direct way, or even tell the therapist what these are. Through careful guided meditations, many traumas can be significantly defused in as little as one or two sessions.
