Accredited Certified Advanced EFT Practitioner
I am a counsellor and an Accredited Certified Advanced EFT practitioner based in Newcastle upon Tyne. I help people who have anxiety, have suffered trauma or are struggling with a sense of self and self-esteem. I do this by helping them to explore themselves, to process and cope with their past and present and to develop strategies and understanding for the future.
I do not believe in a one-size fits all approach and find that different people get the most benefit from different approaches at different points in their life. Each person is an individual with a unique perspective on their experiences. This means creating a safe and warm environment to explore issues and find ways through is paramount to my way of working.
I have an interesting eclectic background which helps to inform the way I work! Originally, I worked as a dentist (particularly enjoying working alongside patients with phobias, mental health difficulties and low self-esteem). (I cannot diagnose medical/dental problems as I am no longer a dentist). I went back to university to study psychology and then again to study counselling. Having been a dentist and training in psychology/counselling I have a good understanding of medical and psychological models and how they interact.
I was introduced to EFT in 2012. I have to admit to initially being skeptical, however, I was quickly convinced of the powerful and effective tool that EFT is. Hence I continued to train to Advanced Practitioner level. I love EFT. I love that I can teach someone the basic recipe in a few minutes and then do deeper work with them in session. I love that they take the basic recipe away and use it between sessions voluntarily!
I am passionate about what I do. I love that I am able to combine my knowledge of medical, psychological and energy models to help my clients find their best way to help themselves. I love that there is always something else to learn.
If you feel that I could help you, please get in touch. (I'm quite friendly!).
