I qualified as a Registered General Nurse in 1991. Since then I have worked in a variety of nursing roles including Surgical nursing, Palliative Care at Manorlands Hospice, as a Practice Nurse at two GP Surgeries and most recently as a Specialist Addiction Nurse within the Drug and Alcohol Service in Leeds.
I am passionate about helping people and treating each client as an individual with empathy and compassion.
Through the therapeutic process and working together with my clients I aim to promote self belief and confidence in order to address any issues or self defeating behaviours to improve outcomes and quality of life.
Throughout my career I have had the privilege of working with people from all walks of life, from all nationalities and religions and from all socio-economic backgrounds. Mental health does not discriminate and I aim to help break down the barriers and stigma surrounding mental health issues by implementing my skills as a hypnotherapist, counsellor and NLP practitioner. I am also continuing my studies in Psychotherapy at the current time to further my existing skills.
