Welcome to Peace of Mind

I am an Emotional Health Consultant with over 23 years experience of working with children, adolescents and adults who have experienced emotional and/or mental health issues.  I have collaborated and worked within various agencies, ranging from local authorities, voluntary and charitable organisations, the NHS and within educational settings.  

I offer my service across the whole of the North West and I undertake therapy in my consultation room in the Prestwich area/Bury area.  When working with children the home environment maybe more appropriate and this can be discussed during consultation.  

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.   

Experience

 

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 looked after children.  

 

I have current registration with BACP as an individual member and have a valid DBS certificate.  In 2003 I qualified as a person centred counsellor and combine this therapy with NLP and EMDR techniques where I 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.

I trained for 4 years as a TA Psychotherapist and have many hours experience of working with clients who have presented with a

diagnosis of Bi-polar, Borderline Personality Disorder, Paranoia and who have experienced significant episodes of psychosis.

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.
