I am a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist, NLP Master Practitioner and mBIT (Multiple Brain Integration Technique) Certified Coach.
I know that sometimes life can get tough, and even the most proficient and capable people can feel overwhelmed and lost amongst the noise. We lose direction, forget what it feels like to be fulfilled, in control, or on the right track.
In my previous career as a company director, I developed training, coaching, and mentoring skills through extensive training and practical experience. This ultimately led me to discover hypnotherapy as a positive therapeutic, and personal development tool.
Anxiety and PTSD were frequent features in my life until I discovered Solution-Focused Therapies and NLP. No other therapy or self-help strategy produced lasting change for me. I had tried a lot of different approaches, with one therapist referring to me as a 'Professional Client'!
So I aquired a set of tools that I could apply to all areas of my life, and the skills to share them with others. It was groundbreaking! It was so refreshing to find a therapeutic modality based in positive resourcefulness, which was so empowering and efficient! This was something I really wanted to share!
So now, I combine coaching skills, including NLP Master Practitioner, Multiple Brain Integration Technique (mBIT) ICF Certified Coach with Solution Focused Hypnotherapy and Trauma Therapy (IARTT). I keep up regular supervision and Continued Professional Development (see below for specific areas of development).
In addition to my role as a Solution-Focused Hypnotherapist and Coach, I am also a mother of two, a home renovator, and a smallholder in the beautiful Stroud Valleys in the Cotswolds, UK.
I'm a crystal, reiki, and energy healer and am highly motivated by spiritual growth. Feel free to any questions about this if you're interested in advancing your own spiritual growth or awareness.
My training in Hypnotherapy is regulated by the CNHC and is Government approved by the Professional Standards Authority. I am fully affiliated and insured and follow the code of conduct of those governing bodies and hold an advanced DBS check.
I trained in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy at the Clifton Practice Hypnotherapy Training, a leading teaching college and gained a Solution Focused Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma (DSFH) and the advanced Hypnotherapy Practitioners Diploma (HPD).
I am a member of, and follow the code of conduct of the Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AFSFH), the National Council of Hypnotherapists (NCH), and the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC).
