Hello. I am your qualified Solution Focused Hypnotherapist, working with you to feel better and achieve your goals.I have practice rooms in Stockport & Cheadle. I also do home visits and Skype sessions on request.
Having a background of over 25 years in management,training and human resources, I have gained much experience in helping teams and individuals develop and show personal and professional growth. I have also trained in Mindfulness and Meditation as well as NLP. (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) and I enjoy facilitating holistic & well- being self help groups in the Stockport area.
Having used hypnotherapy myself and seen its results on friends and family, I felt it was time to invest in myself and qualify as a Soution Focused Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist with the prestigious Clifton Practice. I have not looked back as I get to work with clients over a 6 - 8 week period on average until they feel calm, motivated, confident and happy again. I also work with children and teenagers as well as adults. I combine hypnosis with elements of CBT, NLP and focus on how the brain works for an effective and fun way to your positive future.
I have two children, one at school and one at University and I live locally with them and Kipper the Springer !
Having experienced times of anxiety, stress and post-partum depression in the past as well as coping with times of immense grief and loss, divorce, redundancy & children's illness, I feel it is hugely important to have support and coping strategies.
I lost a man I loved deeply in my life suddenly & which affected me greatly and encouraged me more to re-train in this area.Infact my business name "Riverdale" is actually in memory of him.Solution Focused Hypnotherapy has been a tremendous support in my own personal journey and I can see how a fun and positive life is attainable with this approach everyday.
In my spare time I run a holistic group and lead meditation and mindfulness sessions. I am also training in Emotional Freedom Techniques & as a Reiki practitioner to compliment this support group.
As levels of Anxiety and Depression, Insomnia, OCD and stress related illnesses including IBS and Fibromyalgia are ever increasing in our world, and medication is only ever part of the solution, I am passionate about being the very best therapist for my clients.
I am fully insured and hold my enhanced DBS certificate. I am an accredited member of AfSFH and CNHC. I maintain a thorough Continual Professional Development plan, studying weekly to maintain my knowledge up to date to offer my clients the best sessions. (yes I love the brain science !)
I look forward to working towards your goal with you.
