I am a retired teacher, hypnotherapist, Certified BrainWorking Recursive Therapy (BWRT) Advanced Practitioner, Master Coach and Psychosexual Dysfunction Specialist. I also offer psychotherapy for anxiety and other issues through Anxiety UK.
For the last 4 years I have been involved in local politics as a local politician, county councillor and hold the cabinet position for Corporate Services, I Chair various boards and sit on others. Despite all my success, it has not come easy. I always said to my students that you can achieve whatever you want to as long as you believe you can, and I am proof of that.
My proudest achievement are my daughters who have grown into very beautiful and successful young women. My youngest daughter has just graduated with honours from a leading London university, despite having suffered from anxiety, stress and depression at a young age. My elder daughter has a successful career but has decided to change direction.
I believe that in order to help people with their issues and be a successful psychotherapist you have to have experienced such things personally and this is vital if you are too see the full picture, empathise and understand the extent to which some people can experience their issues and how that experience can if you let it rule your life. Very often you end up living the life you think you should live and not the live you want to live. That is the life someone else had planned for you and not your true calling.
