MY PROFESSIONAL BACKGROUND:
I practised for 25 years as
a mental health social worker. I have considerable experience across a range of mental health issues, lifestyle challenges, and
illnesses. Ongoing 'professional development' throughout my career has seen me add qualifications and skills to my
practice. I have excellent skills in assessing the needs of my clients which enables me to offer suitable and clinically indicated
therapies such counselling, behavioural strategies, hypnotherapy. I describe myself as a 'Wellbeing Coach'.
In terms of your safety and confidence I hold qualifications and registrations that are both academically and government
recognised as showing my expertise and ethical practice:
I have a Degree in Applied Social Studies and am a Qualified
I am a 'Central Council for the Education and Training in Social Work' Approved Practice
I am a Member of The Northern Association of Professional Clinical Hypnotherapists.
I am an approved Consultant

I am registered with the General Social Care Council which is a body monitoring training
levels and members good practice.
I have a clean Criminal Records Bureau 'Enhanced Disclosure' (CRB) which all
persons working in this area should have...but many dont!
RELEVANT PERSONAL BACKGROUND:
I have a lifelong
passion for health and fitness. I am extremely competent and capable in a fitness/gym enviroment and offer 'gym buddy'
sessions which are about supporting people new to such an enviroment. I also as a youngster had my own weight issues so I
can empathise with clients struggling to achieve a healthy 'feel good' weight. I can also show and mentor you
to success in that regard! More recently I had a cancer journey during which I used self hypnosis and NLP which I am certain
enhanced my fight and which ultimately led me to healing. I believe in the power of the mind!
