Welcome to 'Peace of Mind'
I am an Emotional Health Consultant with over 19 years of experience of working with children, adolescents and adults who have experienced emotional and/or mental health issues. I have collaborated with various agencies, ranging from local authorities to voluntary and charitable organisations, the NHS and within educational settings.
I offer my service across the whole of the North West and will consider other areas subsequent to further discussion. I undertake therapy either in my consultation room or within your home environment, wherever you feel more comfortable.
At a clinical level, I am able to support children and adults where there are issues around loss & grief, self-harm, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder. My specialism is within the field of adoption where I have extensive experience with children, adolescents and adults.
Since qualifying as a child and family Social Worker in 2000 I have continued to develop my knowledge, experience and skills in the field of emotional health with children and their families, my specialism being within the field of adoption.
I have current registration with the Health Care Professionals Council and have a valid DBS certificate. In 2003 I qualified as a person centred counsellor and combine this therapy with NLP and CBT techniques where I can utilise an integrated approach.
In 2013 I obtained my Hypnotherapy Diploma and now practice as a clinical Hypnotherapist and have registration with the General Hypnotherapy Register and have worked with both children and adults with positive outcomes.
Furthermore, I hold an adult teaching qualification (City and Guilds 730/7) that I have utilised in the delivery & facilitation of numerous training courses to varied groups across the region. I have also facilitated therapeutic parenting programmes and workshops around various topics.
