Solution Focussed Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist, Licensed Sanomentologist, Master Practitioner in Eating Disorders, Level 3 Advanced Counselling Skills, BTEC Dip Weight Management.
My journey into counselling and life coaching began seventeen years ago when I was desperate, yet again, to lose weight and to find out why I still overate even though I wanted to be slim.
It is so infuriating when we constantly make destructive choices knowing that we are sabotaging our efforts to achieve our goals.
Initially I stayed in the arena of weight loss, running groups and using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Transactional Analysis to raise the personal awareness of my clients. What I saw was not just weight loss, but exponential changes being made in my clients' lives and in those of their families as their understanding of their own behaviour and the behaviour of those around them grew.
It is this experience that brought me to the point of training with the Coaching Academy and learning the Life Coaching skills I needed to help clients who want to learn how to make the most of their lives.
The next step in my journey was the discovery of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy. Leaving the need to dissect the past behind but focusing on the future means that the clients have a positive experience and see results much more quickly than traditional talking therapies.
Finally, my journey of learning and self discovery has led me to studying and qualifying as a Sanomentologist. Going through the training brought astonishing benefit to me personally as I experienced my chronic pain levels from osteoarthritis reduce from severe to almost none. I am excited to be able to add Sanomentology to my toolkit.
