I have decided that we need more support and help to behave like the social animals we were, I believe, destined to be.

Instead of the insular and selfish beings a lot of people have become over the past few years.

Now is a time of crisis and I want to use some of the skills I have developed over the past 40 years to support, help and counsel folk who are struggling with the weirdness that 2020 has brought to our daily, ordered and ordinary lives.

That is, I want to help people by offering support in ways that push anxiety, fear and helplessness to the background and bring a more coping frame to the fore.

I know that there are a lot of people offering all kinds of help to all folk who are struggling to manage their feelings, people who feel lost, lonely and challenged in ways they could never have thought would challenge them.

I am a qualified and UK registered hypnotherapist – through the Complementary and Natural Health Council (CNHC). A Solution Focus and Brief Therapy counsellor and coach, registered  through the UKASFP. My MA is in how to meet the educational needs of children special educational needs.  I am also a Fellow of the Royal Society of the Arts; and a Fellow of the Royal Society of  Public Health.

I am, like many reading this, in total lockdown having underlying health issues, so I use technology to work remotely with clients.

And, whilst we are in the current situation we’re ALL in, I’m happy to offer to work with you,  without a fee; if you want to make a contribution because there are costs to this service, that’s fine, if you need to use the service without a charge, that is also fine, I promise that the quality of input does not vary according to whether you can pay, or otherwise.

I also carry third party liability insurance and have a current CRB / DBS check for working with vulnerable adults and children.
