If you are looking at my website the likelihood is that either you or someone you care about is experiencing some mental stress. Most of us at one time or another will experience stress or anxiety or another kind of mental distress.
Perhaps you are going through a time of transition or have suffered a significant loss in your life. Perhaps you feel stuck on an issue and need some help to get some perspective to get through it. Whatever your difficulty I hope that I can help you directly or point you in the right direction.
I help clients with the following issues:

How I work with my clients.
Most clients take advantage of an initial 30-minutes free phone consultation in which they can give an outline of their problem. It might be related to anxiety, depression, phobias, lack of confidence or motivation or also relationship issues. It is an opportunity for both of us, the client and myself to assess whether we can work together, whether I have the area of expertise that they seek. I work only with clients who I am fully confident I can help and who are genuinely willing to take an active part in their treatment. If we are in agreement then we will set the 1st appointment.
During the first appointment, there are some formalities, the most important of which is to explain clearly the issue of confidentiality data protection and the gathering of only the relevant client information. After this, the session starts and I actively listen to their concerns, to the reason that has brought them to ask for counselling or hypnotherapy. Active listening is much more than just hearing, it is about understanding the persons' situation and experience from their point of view and checking regularly that you have understood their meaning, avoiding jumping to conclusions.
Once I have understood the nature of their problem, I explain to them what are the known brain/mind mechanisms that are responsible for their reactions and emotions, so that they start having a better understanding of their own mind functioning and start taking a degree of control over their troublesome emotions.
I explain the different treatment methods that I offer relevant to their issue (which could be Person Cantered Counselling, Hypnotherapy, Hypnotic Regression Therapy, CBT, Emotional Freedom Therapy, Somatic Therapy ) and in agreement we decide on a treatment plan. The length of the plan will be determined by the nature of the problem and the severity of it. Some clients might only need two sessions while others will need 10 or more.
