After 32 years in financial services, I felt unfulfilled and needed a better work/life balance. I have always been interested in psychology and how people’s minds work, so I decided to train as a Clinical Hypnotherapist, which included a wide range of techniques from other talking therapies. I realised many years ago, that people seemed to naturally seek me out to talk through various life challenges and were motivated afterwards to make positive life changes. It therefore, seemed to be the natural way forward for me and I haven’t looked back since.
As a Reiki Master, I adopt an holistic and Spiritual (not linked to any religion) approach to my work. I very much believe in living in the NOW, which releases us from the anger/sadness/guilt of the past and the anxiety/fear about the future. My inspiration over the last few years has been Dr. Wayne W Dyer and I use a lot of his Spiritual teachings in my work.
I am passionate about motivating, supporting and empowering people to achieve their full potential, and find it very rewarding when clients use their inner resources to make positive changes and resolve their life issues. I will use a range of different techniques to suit each individual, which helps you to explore your inner resources, allowing you to recognise and break down the barriers that are preventing you from living the life you want.
Although I decided to specialise in Weight Management through the Worcestershire Weight Management Clinic, most of my work, regardless of the presenting issue, involves exploring core beliefs and understanding how these are creating issues for my clients. Our negative thoughts hold us back – we become what we think – and by choosing more supportive thoughts and beliefs, clients are able to make positive life changes. I believe that everyone has the capacity within to overcome their challenges, make positive changes and, experience success and happiness in all areas of their life.
