I specialise in reminding people of their capacity to heal using twenty six years of experience within the mental health and wellbeing spaces.  I use a mixture of Western & Eastern Psychology, I am a trauma-informed therapist, Inner Child Therapist and counsellor along with using MBSR (Mindfulness Stress Based Reduction), Meditation, Buddhism, Qi gong to help people heal.  I also use Bach Flower Remedies, Crystal Therapy and Holistic Therapies where necessary and  I am a qualified Teacher, Assessor, IQA and Reiki Master Teacher. 

As a therapist I am always keen to learn and I am currently studying towards a Masters Degree in Interdisciplinary Psychology at Leeds Beckett University, specialising in Trauma Therapies.

About My Work

 

I work within fields of Interdisciplinary and Transpersonal Psychology and have an interest in anxiety and trauma. I am passionate about reminding people of their own capacity to heal and whilst I have the academic qualifications I also have the life experience.

I have written two mental health and wellness books – “The Gateway” and “The Gateway – Junior Edition” series are an introduction and modified version of my work with a choice for anyone to continue their journey. Both books are available on the ‘shop’ page.

ing  My Approaches

My approaches support and empower clients through Western Psychological approaches such as counselling, Psychoanalysis techniques, Inner Child Therapy, MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction), PTSD therapies (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) blended with Eastern philosophies and ancient time honoured techniques such as mindfulness, meditation, touch therapies and energy medicine. I have personally dealt with trauma, anxiety, panic and depression so my approach is from two perspectives, one as a survivor and two as a trained practitioner. I can support clients to “treat” their symptoms and also take therapy a step further to discover the roots causes of emotional pain in a safe and professional environment.

We have ancient minds living in a super modern, fast and ever changing society. Reading my books, having therapy,  studying a course will shed some light on why anxiety is the illness of our time. I consider energy balance, your personal power, my own healing journey, Western and Eastern Psychology, mindfulness, understanding the body and brain, meditation, Qi Gong, Reiki, the chakras, the auric field, improving sleep, energy, yoga, Ayuverda, self-honouring, ego, anxiety, hormones, technology, gratitude and happiness.
