And because I do it well, I get you to do it well....as well!
I gained my BSc Degree in Psychology, became certified as a master hypnotist and examiner, clinical hypnotherapist, NLP practitioner and TimeLine therapist. I am a graduate member of The British Psychological Society, member of the Division of Counselling Psychology, the General Hypnotherapy Register and the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council.
Ive always been fascinated by psychology and the way the mind works. After graduation I worked a while at a secure therapy unit for children. I loved working with the kids, devising and implementing therapy programmes that addressed their behavioural and emotional issues, and seeing them progress and grow into more rounded and capable young men and women.
I got bitten by the hypnosis bug around about 2000 when I went to see a hypnotherapist myself for sciatic pain. Having been exposed to all sorts of psychotherapeutic approaches working within secure walls and outside of them in the community, hypnosis was a kind of revelation.
It worked for me....quickly.....in a matter of hours rather than weeks and months, I was fascinated and thought 'well thats the job for me!'
So that's what I did, I began training and haven't stopped learning and delivering the same kind of quick and effective therapy to my clients ever since.
