Therapy for well being
Sometimes we all need a little help and support. I’m an experienced Psychotherapist and massage therapist. Having worked in clinical practice for 15 years, I offer a wide range of therapeutic interventions each providing a unique approach with benefits. Some focus on psychological wellbeing and others on physical wellbeing and relaxation. You simply choose what you feel you most need.
I am a practicing member of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and the National Register of Hypnotherapists and Psychotherapists (NRHP) and as such I am bound and accountable to the codes of ethics and practice laid down by these professional bodies.
I practice a number of therapeutic interventions designed to address a variety of mental and emotional needs. My aim is to enhance your psychological wellbeing and in turn your quality of life. I offer both short and long term therapy. The amount of sessions will depend on the condition(s) you present and the time you are able to devote to the therapeutic process. During our consultation we will discuss the issues that you are experiencing, what it is that you most want to achieve and any therapeutic preferences you may have. The interventions I offer include:
We can work with any number of these disciplines. Which and how many will depend on your needs and preferences. I will encourage you to take an active role in the therapeutic process and where appropriate teach you helpful therapeutic tools and techniques. This approach maximises the benefits of intervention and allows you to develop your well being competently and independently outside of the sessions.

Mind and body are inseparable and our physical health is very important for our overall sense of wellbeing. Massage can bring both immediate relief and long term protection from many of the symptoms of distress. Reduction of these symptoms has been demonstrated to reduce overall stress levels and increase wellbeing. Treatments include:
Swedish massage is a gentle technique and is used for pure relaxation although it has the ability to aid a range of conditions, such as headaches, insomnia and fatigue. Deep tissue massage works on the soft tissues of the body to help relieve muscular tension that can develop through physical and emotional stress. Various degrees of pressure and stretching movements are applied to areas of muscular tension and spasm to help alleviate discomfort and promote healing. Aromatherapy massage uses individually chosen and blended essential oils in combination with massage. It is a safe way to improve a variety of stress related conditions such as psoriasis, indigestion and migraine.
