    How I can help you

    I use a mix of counselling, cognitive behavioural therapy and coaching to help you understand and overcome the issues that are effecting you. The people I help are the sort of people who are feeling the pressure and stress of modern life. I help mums and dads cope with postnatal depression, a lot of my work over the last year has come from people who are feeling overwhelmed at work.

    I provide a stress management course that will help you take charge of stress in your life and enable you to free yourself from the negative physical and psychological side effects caused by too much stress.

    I also provide a course that combines CBT and self hypnosis which helps people un-do the mental addiction to nicotine, this course takes you from smoker to non smoker in 7 to 10 days.

    What to expect

    My goal is to support you on a journey.

    A journey of self development from where you are now to where you want to be. If you are suffering the effects of stress such as sleepless nights, back or neck aches, lack or focus or irritably. Maybe your relationships with people are suffering because you are just not the same person you used to be .

    I can help you eliminate those effects. I will help you build up your tress resistance and show you how to bring balance to your hormones in a natural way. I will show you how to understand and change the thinks you are doing that are causing you to feel these negative emotions.
