Accredited Certified EFT Practitioner
Hello and welcome to my Bio.
I am a certified EFT and NLP practitioner, and I adapt elements from both modalities in order to provide my clients with a tailor-made approach to working on their specific issues.
As a qualified secondary school teacher here in the UK, and with a previous career within the financial sector, I have gained years of experience working with and supporting others, ultimately leading me towards becoming a therapist.
The growing number of people suffering from anxiety or struggling with the long-term effects of trauma became startlingly clear when I became a Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCo) in the secondary school I taught at. I saw first hand the positive and lasting impact counselling and other forms of support could have on a person's life and emotional well-being. I found myself wanting to be able to provide that support, not just to secondary school students, but to anyone experiencing difficulties or problems that they just can't seem to overcome.
As luck - or fate - would have it, a few years ago, while living in Colorado and taking a break from teaching, I came across a number of approaches to emotional health and well-being that intrigued me and changed my own life for the better. Using EFT in particular, I was able to work on my own anxiety, fears and blocks, uncovering the root causes and clearing them. I also undertook training in Reiki (Levels I and II), learning to use it for relaxation, emotional balance and grounding, as well as for easing physical issues including pain.
Amazed by the results, I began to use my knowledge and skills to help friends and family with their problems, with very positive results. I realised I had found my way to support others.
And so, despite having loved teaching for many many years, upon returning to the UK I decided to retrain as a therapist. In addition to becoming a certified EFT and NLP practitioner. I have also gained a diploma in Integrated Energy Techniques (IET) at The EFT Centre in London and I am currently working towards certification as a hypnotherapist.
We all face difficulties at some point in our lives. We could all use some help and support at times. Whether your problems seem large or small, whether your health issues are chronic or intermittent, I offer friendly, relaxed and highly personalised support and I would love to be able help you live an easier life.
