Mates in Mind

My sessions are focused on you, my client, and it is very important for you to trust and respect your Therapist so I thought I would share my background as to why I trained to become a Therapist. I have worked in the public sector for many years and I decided to train as a Counsellor and Hypnotherapist because, over time, I noticed I had become frustrated with the corporate business and felt drawn to wanting to help people at a much deeper level. So I have trained and met some wonderful people along my journey.
