I have been working therapeutically for almost 30 years , starting as an hypnotherapist .
I then trained in mental health nursing and worked within NHS as well as private health service organizations working with stress , anxiety , depression , bi-polar , schizophrenia , all the way through to complex personality disorders .
I also trained and went on to specialise in working with addictions for many years .
Since graduating to diploma level counselling and establishing my private practice I have also gone to specialise in working with adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse , through a contract with
Survivors (Hull & East Riding ) based in Hull but covering the whole of the East Riding of Yorkshire . This work involves a knowledge of psychological trauma , PTSD , dissociative disorders , rape , domestic violence , attachment disorders etc. I have logged up approaching 1,000 hours in this specialism . I WORK WITH MALE , AS WELL AS FEMALE SURVIVORS .
I also offer hypnotherapy and EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) as alternative approaches to therapy .
I am experienced in both , short-term , solution focussed therapies and longer term psychotherapeutic work .
BROUGH is easily accessible from Hull , only 10 miles down A63 (dual-carriageway) thus avoiding Hull city centre traffic and parking .
Most of the East Riding towns and villages are within easy reach of BROUGH - Ferriby , Swanland , Hessle , Willerby , Kirkella , Cottingham , Beverley , Market Weighton , Pocklington , Goole , Howden etc
BROUGH is also close by the Humber Bridge allowing close proximity to North Lincolnshire areas- Barton , Scunthorpe , Immingham etc.
