About Me


About me


I started studying hypnosis and psychotherapy in 1997 after 32 years in the Army and 6 years in the computer industry. Having achieved my Diploma with the National College, I spent the following 2 years achieving the Diploma of Human Givens Therapy. I have also studied Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), and Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT).

My combined military and commercial background offers a strong blend of experience with which to support my skills as a counsellor and therapist. My decision to study and practise therapy was triggered by events in my private life. I would like to help others to overcome, and preferably identify and prevent,difficultiesin their own lives.


I am a member of the Human Givens Institute, having gained a Post Graduate Diploma from MindFields College and registered as a Human Givens Therapeutic Practitioner (HG.Dip.P). MindFields College is accredited by the Human Givens Institute, founded in 1992 as a multi-disciplinary body set up to study, research, and inform the public on what constitutes effective counselling and psychotherapy. Human Givens therapy is highly effective because it draws on the findings from psychology and neurobiology about how people really function, and international research studies that have established which counselling techniques are most effective.

The National College is the only institution of its kind externally accredited by the British Accreditation Council for Independent Further and Higher Education. Such accreditation has been acknowledged by the Secretary of State for Education as the only public guarantee of standards in independent institutions of further and higher education in the UK.
