I am a fully qualified counsellor (Dip.C.) and a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (M.B.A.C.P.) and, as such, I am bound by its ethical framework for good practice. As a member of the B.A.C.P. my work is reviewed monthly by another qualified counsellor. This review is designed to ensure that your needs are being met and it provides you with further peace of mind that you are being treated ethically. To view the B.A.C.P. ethical framework please
I am also an advanced hypnotherapist (Dip.A.Hyp) and a member of the Corporation of Advanced Hypnotherapy (M.C.A.Hyp.) and as such, I abide by their constitution and code of ethics. To view the Standards for Hypnotherapy please
In addition to the above, I am a licenced practitioner of Integral Eye Movement Therapy (I.E.M.T.), a technique that has been found to generate rapid change in the areas of undesired emotional and identity imprints. I.E.M.T. is particularly effective with regards to intrusive imagery and flashback phenomena and, as such, it has been used to great effect in the treatment of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. To find out more about this therapy, please
In order to provide the best possible service to my clients I am continually updating my skills and I have trained to Master Practitioner level in Neuro Linguistic Programming (N.L.P.) and hold a diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (C.B.T.). This understanding of different therapy models enables me to offer integrative counselling, allowing me to ensure that individual needs are met.
My private practice is based in Sabden but I also work as a volunteer counsellor and serve on the board of trustees at the Open Door drop-in centre in Colne, I have worked as an outreach therapist for a well known daytime television programme and I am an associate therapist with Lancashire Constabulary. In addition to this I carry out E.A.P (Employee Assistance Programme) work for occupational health agencies and have provided on-site trauma counselling for industrial accidents. These roles have given me a broad experience of working with people of all ages and with differing life experiences and needs, either acute or chronic, on both a short-term and a long-term basis.
Before I came to counselling, I had a wealth of experience working in many different settings, from the N.H.S. to the private sector and, latterly, to working in education. In my younger (and more energetic!) years, I spent a lot of time travelling and working in such places as Greece, Israel and Spain. All of my jobs and travels have involved working and meeting with people from all different walks of life and many nationalities giving me a greater understanding of how our experiences impact our perceptions and behaviours.
I was born in London and my family moved to Essex when I was very young but, as a result of my parents' divorce, I also lived in Hertfordshire and Norfolk before moving to Barnsley, Yorkshire, where I went to school and spent my teenage years. I am now happily settled in Lancashire with my husband and I have 4 children. Two children from a previous marriage - a 26 year old son and a 24 year old daughter who has Asperger's Syndrome (high functioning autism) and A.D.H.D. and is currently living at home - as well as 20 year old twin daughters who are both at university.
All of my life experiences - travel, divorce, raising children (including a spell as a single parent), a diverse career path and latterly, being a cancer survivor - have given me an added insight which enhances my naturally empathic and non-judgmental nature. Both of these are vital in order to offer effective counselling and hypnotherapy, and genuinely understand what it is like to walk in someone else's shoes.
