To have Counselling for Anxiety and Depression - Who am I ? (Opens up a new page)
Hypno-psychotherapy and CBT is more than just a quick fix. It's about giving you the tools to live a healthier, and happier life and to help bring about lasting and positive changes. At the beginning of therapy, an assessment is made and we will talk about what your therapy needs are any worries or concerns you have and then we create a plan and a and a way forward together. 
I understand that asking for help can be difficult sometimes and believe me I have asked for help myself. I know that therapy helped me when I was struggling in my life and as part of my training I have also had more personal therapy. 
Because of my life experiences I understand how much work this can be but because of this I also know that there are solutions and that by recognising, owning and experiencing our emotions we move through them to success.  Sometime we can't see what is blocking our progress and therapy can help you identify what these might be 
My aim is to provide a therapy that is informed and able to work in an integrated way by combining the different theories and techniques of CBT, Psychotherapy, and Hypnotherapy that is based on the individual needs of anyone who comes to me for therapy.
Among other things I am able to offer CBT therapy for trauma, depression and for anxiety disorders, (such as OCD, Social anxiety, other specific phobias, (a fear of heights, lifts, needles etc.)
Do you find that you worry about everything, this might be something called Generalized Anxiety disorder (GAD)- Hypnosis is excellent for helping you to develops skills in relaxation. CBT can help with those difficult emotional and physical feelings that can take control of your life. By identifying the negative thoughts based on the Cognitive Behavioural Therapy you can begin to enjoy today and not worry so much about tomorrow that you restrict your life or feel powerless  
CBT is for Emetophobia (a fear of being sick) is based on behavioural techniques such as exposure response therapy.  In this way I have also experience of providing CBT for ticks and Tourette’s syndrome,
If you are having thoughts or are self-harming I can provide therapy for you. However in some cases of self-harm or thoughts of suicide therapy may involve working with your GP or other services that support you, to keep you safe  
My experience covers working with people who have a diagnosis of Autistic spectrum disorder (ASD) or have a learning difficulty and the anxiety of living with this.  Often behaviours and routines can accompany ASD as well as some OCD behaviours because doing these can help reduce your anxiety.
But this means the anxiety remains and this can be difficult to overcome.  But understanding the thoughts and feelings behind these is the first step in being able to change or challenge those existing ways of doing things and develop new ways that can help you to reduce your anxiety in a more helpful way.
Having ASD can make it difficult to react with others in social situations and CBT is a very effective therapy for helping you work through your social anxiety.
I also offer on-line therapy and home visits
On-line therapy is the delivery of mental health counselling via the Internet. People also know it as e-therapy, distance therapy, Internet therapy and web therapy. Therapists and online therapy networks use a variety of mediums such as apps for texting, video chatting, voice messaging and audio messaging. Studies have proven the efficacy of therapy via the Internet to the point where it has become a viable alternative and supplement to in-office therapy.

What is Hypno-psychotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is a state of very deep relaxation that is extremely powerful. Hypnotherapy may be used on its own, as simple relaxation therapy, or it may be integrated with any of the great schools of psychological thought. This integrative approach of Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy has very wide therapeutic applications.
Hypnosis with Psychotherapy can help you with so much. By combining different therapies your therapist can help you work towards success - From a way of finding relaxation and to help reducing stress, to increasing your confidence and reducing your anxiety. Hypnosis Together with Psychotherapy and the help of your therapist you can achieve positive & lasting results.
What is Cognitive behavioural therapy or CBT?
Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a talking therapy that can help you manage your problems by developing new ways of thinking and behaviours that enhance your life. It can help you identify what needs to change.
It's most commonly used to treat anxiety and depression, but can be useful for other mental and physical health problems. CBT is a helpful therapy that is structured and can help those unhelpful thoughts which can result in circular thinking and which make it difficult for you to see things in a positive way.  By working together we can identify these and the reasons behind them and what might be that is stopping you from moving forward with your life
