After 10 long months of learning, practice with actual real people and running my business as a student practitioner i got 'my stripes'.
My training was practical from day one in September 2022 and i have been seeing clients with real issues from the get go. I have been vigorously tested and examined on the rigorous and science based approach of solution focused hypnotherapy throughout.
Ive been examined in neurology and also had professional supervision and support throughout and this will continue now I'm fully trained.
As a seasoned therapist in the NHS of over 20 years I was astounded that my training and continuing professional development did not cover the ability to teach our clients how their own minds and brains actually work.
Throughout my student clinical practice my clients have all stated that the first session being taught that all these issues they are facing are perfectly normal and they are perfectly normal was a revelation and being given the power to manage their own minds and brains in such a pleasurable way was life changing.

BSc (Hons) Psychology 2003
BSc (hons) Occupational Therapy 2005
Certificate in Counselling 2002
