Since the Outbreak of covid-19 many of us have had our lives completely turned upside down and we are all struggling in our own ways. It has affected people in different ways. For some just having some space to talk through things can make a huge difference to how they cope.

For others, the lockdown has meant that they have spent a lot of time reflecting on what's important in their lives and what's not, and they may as a result want to make some big changes but without knowing where to start. Sometimes it takes a conversation with somebody skilled who can listen to what it is that you're saying and give you the space to explore it in your own way and help you to actually make a pathway forward for yourself.

I think if there is a silver lining in all of this, it's that we are being given the gift of time and the gift of space to think more clearly.

If you'd like to explore any of this stuff and you'd like some extra support then why don't you make contact with me online today and we can hook up by video link and together we can explore everything that you're struggling with and look at all your ideas and aspirations for the future together.

You will find my contact details on the website.
Stay safe!

About me

I am a qualified Person-Centred Counsellor (Dip TC) Solution Focused Hypnotherapist (DSFHT) and EFT, Emotional Freedom Technique Practitioner living and working in North Devon.  

I have worked extensively as a counsellor supporting survivors of domestic abuse, and individuals suffering with anxietydepression or other debilitating mental health conditions; often battling with addictions that impact the quality of their lives.

I believe that counselling offers individuals a way of acknowledging where they have come from and helps them to find their own way forward. I love how powerful these changes can be for people; I’m continually astounded at the resilience and strength of individuals who have experienced the deepest traumas, and honoured to be with them as they reclaim their identity and self-belief.

I decided to retrain as a hypnotherapist because I found that not everyone I worked with felt ready to explore painful moments from their past in order to move forward with their lives. I found this to be particularly true with the the young adults I worked with and who struggled with counselling techniques. Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a light and future-oriented activity, and I like how quickly and effectively this intervention works for people. I think it has given me more flexibility to work with more people.

Hypnotherapy is beneficial for so many ailments and conditions. It can enable clients to reach their full potential, to restore their health and well-being, or help them to reduce harmful habits or addictions that keep them trapped and feeling stuck. It can support individuals within their relationships and help people to build happier, brighter futures for themselves.

More recently my work has seen me supporting individuals with weight loss, smoking cessation and helping individuals suffering with IBS.

EFT felt like the perfect accompaniment to my other qualifications.  I love the hands-on technique and the speed with which this practice unearths trapped emotions that negatively impact people's lives.  Negative emotions triggered in earlier periods of our lives often remain active at a subconscious level.  These emotions feed us (inappropriate) negative messages which undermine and sabotage our attempts to lead fulfilling and productive lives.  The tapping technique which is so easy to learn, enables individuals to free the emotions and thus lift the limiting beliefs they have been operating under, resulting in happier and more fulfilled  lives.

EFT is a technique that can be learnt in minutes and one that clients can continue to experience the benefits of on their own, outside of the therapy room.
