I am an experienced Cognitive Hypnotherapist, EMDR practitioner and executive coach who takes a holistic view of my clients. I believe that focusing on the whole person and not just the presenting problem gives the best opportunity to help my clients achieve what they want from their therapy.
I work with and have had lots of success with a very broad range of issues from anxiety, stress, and PTSD. I’ve helped clients with phobias, fear of public speaking and social anxiety and a variety of other issues.
I find all presenting issues fascinating because I find the person at the centre of it all fascinating. My areas of special interest are, confidence, self-esteem, beliefs, and locus of control, (the extent to which you believe you have control over events in your life).
In addition to my therapy training and experience I am also a qualified and experienced executive coach and a certified Business Psychologist.
I have experience of working with C-suite executives, global heads of department, partner-level employees, entrepreneurs and others from industries including ‘big four’ professional services firms, retail, finance, media, technology, private equity, architecture and others.
Recent assignments have included leadership development (helping leaders to define their leadership style and leadership presence), helping a CFO transition to CEO, coaching a CEO in preparation for sale of a multi-national and helping a team of hospital consultants to rebuild trust and structure in their team after significant breakdowns in relationships within the team.
Whilst coaching, I am able to apply a thorough and rigorous therapeutic understanding to behaviour and to blend it with the latest coaching techniques to help my clients. Together, we examine how you typically think about a problem, what coping mechanisms do you typically call on and whether these things are working for you? If not, I help you find a more effective way to address your immediate and or long-term career objectives.
I would be happy to answer any questions you may have about therapy or coaching and what I can do for you. Please call me to discuss whatever is on your mind.
