As a university and college lecturer in marketing and business studies, I became increasingly interested in specializing in psychology through teaching the application of theorists in psychoanalysis and behaviorism within a marketing and business perspective. This led me to embark on the study of counselling and psychotherapy and I became a qualified clinical Hypnotherapist, Counsellor and Psychotherapist, accredited by the Open University.
I am a Member of the National Hypnotherapy Society as well as Associate Member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists and a Member of the National Counselling Society. I am committed to continuous professional development and regularly attend workshops in the varying areas of treatment.
I regularly attend workshops and master classes and I have a Diploma as an Alcohol Control Therapist. I have also attended courses at Brighton University dealing with phobias. I have attended Master classes in London dealing with Insomnia, Pain Management and helping cancer sufferers. I am also a specialist in Smoking Cessation, whether it be tobaccos or other addictive substances, through the London College of Clinical Hypnotherapy and have expertise in dealing with Depression and Anxiety having attended a master-class at the National Hypnotherapy Society. I have also studied regression techniques in order to help individuals solve the problems that may stem from their past.
I have always been interested in helping people and understanding human behaviour. Hypnotherapy is a wonderfully powerful healing tool through relaxation techniques that help in the relief of stresses and tensions of everyday life. Depression, traumas, habits and phobias can be manifested from these stresses. I will work with clients through hypnotherapy and counseling to build a meaningful and interactive relationship and develop a tailored treatment especially to suit my client’s needs.
I have been a Voluntary Home Care visitor for Hospice in the Weald in Pembury, Kent, visiting patients who do not wish to end their days in the Hospice, at their homes or in care homes.
I have helped many individuals cope with and eliminate depression and anxiety as well as finding solutions to their relationship problems, whatever form the relationship is based on.
I am also Leader (Chair) of the Kent Branch of “Women in Rural Enterprise” (WIRE), which is a national networking organization devoted to helping and supporting women in small businesses.
I am currently researching and working on a book that investigates the many facets and geography of the soul in reaching our perception of life’s purpose.
