“If a flower can flourish in the desert,
you can flourish anywhere.”

Matshona Dhliwayo

A friend asked me recently:

“What do you do, exactly?”

I, of course, got ready to list my professional labels: Psychologist, Hypno-analyst, Psychotherapist, BWRT practioner and so on. But I realized suddenly that’s not what I do at all, but rather what my degrees and certificates identify as my qualifications.

“What I do, I replied, is help people whose lives seem to have derailed a little, or a lot, to get back on track and move forward stronger than before, providing the relevant tools to also help them stay on track in the future. Of course, my credentials and relevant memberships matter so that you know that I’m qualified to do what I do and that I keep up to date with current research and thinking, but what I DO is support someone else’s transition to strength.”

If that sounds like something you would like to explore, please get in touch for a chat.

My credentials

I am a therapist/coach, with 25 years international expertise, I will guide and support your growth and transition to strength. Here are my credentials and professional memberships so that you know I can do what I do!


BSc. Hons. Psychology, MSc. Occ. Psychology, Chartered Psychol., NLP Practioner, NLP Master Practioner, Foundation in Art Therapy, Diploma in CBT, Diploma in Hypnotherapy with Psychotherapy and Counselling Skills, Advanced Diploma in Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy, Certified Specialist in Hypnosis and ADD/ADHD, BWRT L1 & L2; specialist training in BWRT for Grief and OCD and with children.


Hypnotherapy is a gentle, non-invasive therapy that involves deep relaxation. In this way, we invite the Conscious Mind to ‘turn down the volume’ of criticism or judgment whilst the Subconscious does the hard work of mind-healing, often through imagery and positive re-inforcement.


BWRT is the latest in the behavioural psychotherapies. Based on neuroscience, it can be effective in treating pretty much anything from an uncomfortable feeling or bad habit to more serious depression, phobias and addictions. 𝗕𝗪𝗥𝗧® has been designed to remove emotive responses from memories that are deeply troubling and create new, adaptive neural pathways that do not have the old undesirable emotional responses.

Other Approaches

You are unique. As each person presents, the approach will depend on your needs, situation and goals. The program of therapy will be tailored just for you often using a combination of respected and well-researched therapeutic interventions.
