If you are distressed, depressed, unhappy or afraid, perhaps I can help.
We all experience stresses and strains in the course of everyday living, and most of the time, one way or another, we cope. But there are times when troubles seem overwhelming, and at such times talking to a professional therapist can be the best solution. I offer the following services:
For those who have hit a tricky patch in an otherwise satisfying life, counselling focuses primarily on current difficulties and the strengths and strategies we have to overcome them.
For others, whose problems are more deep-seated, complex or enduring, psychotherapy offers longer term support and typically involves looking into childhood and personal history, exploring the unconscious using methods such as active imagination, dreamwork and focusing.
Hypnotherapy brings about swift beneficial changes using suggestions that are tailor-made to individual need and employing the latest hypnotic techniques.
Transpersonal psychotherapy recognises the spiritual dimension of our lives and is concerned not only with the ‘breakdown and repair’ of ordinary functioning but with our potential for transcendence.
I can help with such difficulties as:
|Anxiety and depression||Fears and phobias||Abuse and assault|
|Insomnia, nightmares and other sleep difficulties||Relationship and intimacy difficulties||Addictive and habitual behaviour patterns|
|Low self-confidence and low self-esteem||Grief and bereavement issues||Obsessions and compulsions|
|Post-natal depression||Adoption||Mood swings|
|Work related issues||Panic disorder||Suicidal thoughts|
|Trauma and PTSD||Gender issues||Lack of confidence|
If you are not sure and you would like to discuss whether I can help with your particular difficulties you are welcome to contact me.
I have thirty years’ experience of working with the psychological therapies and currently run private practices in Newbury and Devizes.
In the past I have worked in schools and youth agencies, in primary and secondary care drugs and alcohol rehabilitation, and until recently taught on the Diploma Course in Psychotherapy and Counselling for Bridge Pastoral Foundation at Douai Abbey near Reading.
If you would like to ask about any aspect of counselling, psychotherapy or hypnotherapy enquiries are always welcome. Clients who may be nervous, anxious or fearful, or who have already ‘tried everything’ are particularly welcomed.
