Hello and welcome to my site.
I'm a Professional Counsellor, qualified Life Coach, Hypnotherapist and an intuitive / Reiki Healer based in Preston.
However, I'm also a spiritual adventurer who prefers to have my mind opened by wonder than closed by belief. To this end I've been down many roads, which is why I introduce different tools into my practice. Please browse my pages, where I'm sure that you'll find something that appeals to you and takes you out of your comfort zone and into the realms of enlightenment and growth.
Discover the real you ... the person you are meant to be!
I work differently from other Therapists, in-so-much as I combine all of the specialties that I am trained in when working with my clients.
Whilst person-centred counselling is very much "walking along-side" a client, it very quickly became apparent that my clients wanted something more from me. As well as helping them emotionally, they also wanted guidance on how they can best move forward by pin-pointing a specific area in their lives that they wanted to change or something that they wanted to achieve.
Sometimes the client may benefit from taking action and focusing on some goals. Maybe you'd like to:
Counselling can help you find out what it is that's sabotaging your life, whilst Life Coaching can help you focus on what it is that you want and how to go about getting it.
If you are having problems releasing something that is stopping you from progressing then we can talk about hypnotherapy. A hypnotherapy session usually lasts about an hour. I will use various relaxation techniques to guide you into a hypnotic state. In this state, you are still conscious and aware. Your body becomes more relaxed and the mind more responsive to suggestions .
The therapist’s suggestions will depend on the condition or behavior you are trying to treat. Hypnotherapy can help target unwanted or unhealthy habits and possibly replace them with healthier behaviors. Examples include being able to better control pain or anxiety or adjusting negative thought patterns that could be worsening depression symptoms.
If at times this all feels too overwhelming then I am also a reiki healer. Reiki sessions allow you to just "be". It's basically a deep relaxation session where you can stop the "chatter" and escape from reality for a while. It will leave you feeling replenished and ready to continue on your path of self-discovery.
By adopting this holistic approach I feel confident that I am looking after my clients in the best way possible.
I'm a registered member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) and am fully insured (with Holistic Services). My portfolio of registrations, memberships, insurance policies, qualifications and certifications are available for perusal at any time during our sessions.
Home visits, including those for reiki, will be considered on a client-by-client basis, but will incur additional travelling expenses.
As always I continue to welcome the chance to work with people of different genders, origins, ages, abilities, sexualities and faiths.
The success of my services is dependent upon the relationship between the client and the practitioner. It requires a commitment from both parties, as in any other relationship. There are no quick fixes, I'm not a magician, but I know from experience that it can be a magical and empowering experience!
I trust that my site has provided you with some basic information about myself and the services that I provide. Please feel free to contact me should you have any specific questions, or any suggestions as to how to improve my web site for clients.
Thank you for dropping by and I wish you success in finding the answers that you are seeking.
