QUALIFICATIONS

I work within the Human Givens Institute's Ethical Framework.  My diploma is an accredited and exam based course, is constructed from evidence and research based on findings into neurophysiology and human psychology and behaviour ....  the Human Givens.

 

About the Human Givens

This approach is widely adopted by many doctors and health professionals as one of the most effective forms of therapy for depression, anxiety, stress, phobias, post-traumatic stress disorder and many other emotional and physical difficulties.  You may have one area of your life with which you need help, or your difficulties may have multiple causes   Using the human givens framework helps clarify the situation and allows me to use whichever combination of a wealth of proven, psychotherapeutic skills is appropriate. It can empower you to regain control, get your needs met in healthy ways, develop your resources and move you on in your life as quickly as possible.  This approach is truly holistic, scientific and practical.

 

Before training in the Human Givens approach, I had a long and successful business career, as well as bringing up a family.  I have therefore, a good understanding of the pressures and stress that people experience through work, relationships, family and life in general.

 

From my experience, the Human Givens practical, solution focused approach is the fastest and most effective therapy for a wide range of difficulties.  I do not dwell unduly on the past and together, we find solutions to your situation.  I help you to relax and find new empowering ways to move on.

 

As well as my own private practice, I have  for the last four years, worked for the charity, MIND. I have also worked in the NHS for four years, two years with homeless clients and four years for an alcohol abuse charity and I work in conjunction with The Red Poppy Company (stress at work) and PTSD Resolution (Counselling forces personnel).

 

I keep up-to-date with regular training and I read widely to familiarise myself with the latest research and scientific developments.  I am supervised on a regular basis and work within the ethical standards of the Human Givens ethical guidelines.

 

I have a CRB disclosure
