I am always looking to learn more at a deep personal level, stretching myself and increasing my experience, knowledge and skills for the benefit of my clients. I have a Masters degree in Counselling awarded by the University of East Anglia and I have a BSc (Hons) degree in Integrative Counselling taught by Matrix College and awarded by Middlesex University. I also gained a post-graduate diploma in ‘Thinking at the Edge’ (Focusing Oriented Psychotherapy) with the University of East Anglia, taught by Dr Campbell Purton.
A Passion for Life & Learning
My passion and purpose in life is to challenge my own mind, my beliefs, my thoughts, my emotions and behaviours. I also feel passionate about passing that knowledge and experience on and helping you to do the same and ultimately feel able to handle anything that happens in life. It’s not possible to know everything, but I know I constantly learn things, particularly from everyone around me whatever is happening, and I remain open to that. I was certainly challenged in 2002 when I was seriously injured in a road accident. I sustained severe leg injuries and developed Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and subsequent anxiety problems. My confidence was shattered. However, because of my previous life experiences including childhood, and my training and knowledge, I faced the challenges presented to me. I gradually conquered the PTSD and this helped me accept and deal with the physical problems. In October 2006 after having made an empowered choice to do so, I had my left leg amputated. I also elected to have this done without General Anaesthetic. Instead, I had a nerve blocker in the leg. I trusted myself and knew I could take charge of as much of the whole process as I could, consequently feeling and being in charge of my own recovery and healing process. I trusted in the power and potential of my own mind. I would like to offer you the opportunity to find out more and develop these sort of skills and more, and take up the challenge to see what your own mind is capable of.
Hypnotherapy & NLP
Hypnotherapy and NLP are faster ways to help you feel better and not only help with feelings and symptoms you may be experiencing, but also provide you with new strategies and tools to help you in your life generally.
Psychotherapeutic Counselling is available if you wish to engage in a more ‘talking’ therapy. It is often useful to talk things through, unravelling problems, understanding things from a new perspective and just to have someone genuinely listening to you and letting you feel what you feel without judgement.
Relief from Anxiety
I believe the best person to understand and help deal with anxiety is someone who has experienced it. I have personally experienced anxiety in my own life. At the time no-one seemed to understand or even want to know. I was drawn to Hypnotherapy and NLP and was delighted with a completely fresh approach to therapy that was immediately effective at dealing with specific symptoms such as anxiety.
There is no need to tell you about the health issues with smoking, as you already know these and with my approach we only focus on the positive reasons you smoke. ( Yes, they are there! ) I offer a very comprehensive package to those wishing to be free from the habit of smoking.
I went to see Mike around 2006/7 for about a year, I was in a real mess and couldn’t see any way forward with my thoughts which were making me feel almost paralysed, Mike taught me how to understand myself and gave me a “self awareness” that I have since developed and still use to this day, but whatever your state of mind I would say that awareness is the key to knowing and improving yourself no matter what level of problems you have, minor or major. These days I am a manager in charge of a team of professional people living and working abroad in Spain, I’m proud of what I’ve achieved and learned from Mike.

PSYCHOTHERAPEUTIC COUNSELLING & CBT
As humans we have the ability to think and we have each developed our own unique ways and patterns of thinking, ways of dealing with the world around us. However, thinking effects how we feel; think negatively and we feel negative; think positively and we feel positive. CBT helps us identify how we’ve done this and understand that there were good reasons. It provides us with new thought strategies/techniques, whilst challenging old ones. We then feel able to respond to things and feel more empowered. This is even more useful when combined with hypnotic techniques. TA may help to understand how we relate and engage with everyone around us, how this may have caused us problems; e.g. our perception of others, how we feel about ourselves and friends, family, associates, colleagues, etc. We may learn how this causes communication and interaction difficulties and how to change this. Imagine feeling confident that you can express yourself well in all relationships and social, public and working environments. Combined with Hypnotherapy this may help to deal with issues at their root. Counselling is available if you wish to engage in a more ‘talking’ therapy. It may be useful to talk things through, unravelling problems, understanding things from a new perspective and just to have someone genuinely listening to you without offering advice or a fix and letting you feel what you feel without judgement. Counselling involves a more in depth exploration of issues such as discovering the root cause of a problem, revealing how it affects things today. This helps us to become more aware and understand causes, triggers etc, and our subsequent behaviours and feelings. We may then move on to discovering how to deal with past issues and deal with the present. In this way we may become more aware, with a deeper understanding and acceptance of ourselves, and feeling we are able to respond and engage with others and life around us.

RELIEF FROM ANXIETY
I believe the best person to understand and help deal with anxiety is someone who has experienced it. I have personally experienced anxiety in my own life. At the time no-one seemed to understand or even want to know. Doctors just wanted to medicate and I tried that approach out of desperation. All approaches I tried, including counselling help, seemed to make things worse. I was drawn to Hypnotherapy and NLP and was delighted with a completely fresh approach to therapy that was immediately effective at dealing with specific symptoms such as anxiety. Anxiety can be a limiting and uncomfortable feeling at best, disabling and frightening at worse. Yet it is a natural feeling designed to prevent us getting hurt. You may experience immediate relief from anxiety once you understand and deal with the causes and learn and use very effective techniques from Hypnotherapy, NLP (see NLP) and Self-Hypnosis. I have 20 years of knowledge, study, practice, and 54 years of life experience to draw on, and I may help you resolve anxiety issues and experience genuine and liberating relief from anxiety.

To succeed in dealing with smoking, I believe it requires commitment and effort but also plenty of support and back up. You will need to learn some new and very useful skills, which can also have a positive effect in other areas of your life too. The first step is to have a phone conversation with me and agree to a 30 minute appointment. At this stage there is no charge, no obligation to proceed, the choice is all yours. This gives me a chance of assessing if this approach is going to be a successful one for you and for you to do the same. Next is a 2 hour appointment and this is where all the work is done. The techniques of Neuro-Linguistic Programming, language skills and a powerful hypnotic session are employed. We also look very closely at what you need to do to help yourself in the following days to ensure success. Payment is made at this time, the cost for the full package is currently £247. We then meet for a third time for an hour to see how things are progressing and to make sure you are supported and to boost the hypnotic effect.

SUPERVISION FOR COUNSELLORS, HYPNOTHERAPISTS AND OTHER PROFESSIONALS
As you know regular Supervision is a requirement of most of our professional bodies, e.g BACP, UKCP and others. Whether it’s a requirement or not, I believe it is essential for our development as a therapist and for our own personal growth, and consequently how successful our practice is. Most of all, it’s absolutely essential for the safety of our clients, our own safety, and for successful outcomes with our clients. As well as my own established private therapy practice, I am able to provide a Clinical Supervision service for professionals. I work with supervisees in an Integrative way. This means that whatever your own philosophical or theoretical approach, we find the commonalities of approaches and work with those, rather than the differences. You are an integral part of your work with your client and there are many issues that can manifest, which is perfectly normal in any relationship, including the therapist-client one. I can only see or have a sense of your client (confidentially of course) through you and what you describe. It’s my job to ensure I have as accurate a picture as I can get in order to support you effectively. The most important part of Supervision is the quality of support I can give you. Therefore the quality of our Supervisor-Supervisee relationship is vital for the process. I personally prefer to regard our relationship as equal and colleague to colleague, whatever your experience may.

Hi all. It's been a while since my last post here. I thought I'd share with you something that happened to me very recently. One day last week, while I had a bit of time to myself, I went to the Waterfront here, a very popular local spot, with lots of...
