I have long believed that every person is a unique result of genetics and environmental influence, neither of which we can significantly control, and so are deserving of equal respect whatever our background or problems. I believe that everyone wants to be well, and that any dysfunctional emotions or behaviours are simply attempts to take care of ourselves in the only way we know is available at the time. I think everyone can be given access to the resources required to overcome their problems. I have an innate ability to see, and to help people see, their strengths and possibilities for growth, as well as an innate desire to care and help.
A brief history
I was born in Edinburgh in '68. I came to Sheffield to study and research at Sheffield University (BSc and PhD '87-'93).
I trained on the NCH approved Acadamy of Advanced Changework course for hypnotherapists under Psychology Doctor/ex-Sheffield Hallam University lecturers Paul Peace and Karen Bartle.
This was one of the most comprehensive and highly regarded courses in the country. I am trained to treat all issues mentioned on this website.
I am a Sheffield based hypnotherapist and NLP practitioner. I am also an assistant instructor in Tai Chi and Secretary of the board of 'VDT', a contemporary dance company in Sheffield.
