I use a number of therapies to help my clients, just like you, make the changes they want to make.
I first trained as a life and business coach, having come across coaching when I was studying for my MBA with the Open University. I take a coaching approach when working with all my clients, as it focuses on you and the resources you have within you, even if sometimes you don't know you have them - Yet!

I also 'discovered' NLP around the same time. And after completing my coaching training went on to learn more about NLP and, depending on your issues, may well use some of the techniques that come from NLP. These include the Rewind technique, Parts Therapy, and the use of metaphor to explore your issues. Click here to find out more about NLP. NLP and coaching work well together.
When studying NLP I met someone who had trained in Clinical Hypnotherapy with the London College of Clinical Hypnosis. After a bit of research I decided to delve deeper into hypnosis and how to use it to help people change their lives. I studied Clinical Hypnotherapy, (click here to read more) which included EMDR, and then Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy (CBH), find out more here. I use CBH with many clients as it teaches you how to think differently about situations.
As you know, not every therapy works for every person so, like many therapists, I keep an eye out for new developments. In 2016 I came across BWRT®, BrainWorking Recursive Therapy, developed by Terence Watts. It draws upon neuroscience and theories of how the brain works to allow us to change your unwanted thoughts, habits or fears in a straight forward way. Find out more here.
I may add more tools! However, the therapies I use at present enable me to help most clients change how they think and feel about the past, present or future. Having a number of different tools allows me to tailor my sessions to suit your, individual, needs.
I work online with clients using either Zoom or What'sApp and we can have sessions over the phone too. This means no travelling for you and you can work with me from your home or office, wherever you are in the world.
I work with clients from as far afield as Australia, USA and Europe as well as here in the UK.
Locally, clients come from Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Jesmond, Gosforth, North Tyneside, North Shields, Whitley Bay, Tynemouth, Cullercoats and surrounding areas into Northumberland and South Tyneside. I see them virtually too.
