My Mission:

My mission is to make a difference in people’s lives, especially for those who already face so many challenges dealing with routines and daily tasks. The tools I am able to teach people to learn will help minimise the challenges they face and help them to cope better in everyday life. I find this approach works best when everyone involved in a persons life, works together to help implement change and I help to facilitate this to happen by liaising and communicating with everyone.

My goal is to give children/ adults and families the right strategies and tools to make living in our complicated world a bit easier to understand and deal with.


Hypnotherapy is a therapeutic tool that can be used to treat a variety of problems affecting your mental and physical health. These can include phobias, pain, discomfort, depression, anxiety, sensory overloads, self-esteem issues, self-limiting beliefs, Smoking cessation, weight loss, and many more. It is very different from the hypnosis you might have heard about. 


Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)

EFT (AKA Tapping) is releasing trapped emotions (energy) in your body, by tapping using our fingertips on the ACUPRESSURE Meridian point, that are situated just beneath the surface of the skin. The treatment is non-invasive and works on the ethos of making change as simple and as pain free as possible. It’s like ACUPUNTURE WITHOUT using any NEEDLES. Tapping on the Meridian Points helps to stimulate the blockage which helps resolve the problem quickly and effectively. I have seen this on myself and other clients of how IMPRESSIVE EFT is to resolve PHYSICAL and EMOTIONAL problems.

EFT draws its power from Eastern Discoveries from 5000 years ago. EFT focuses on the Emotional Aspect and helps CHANGE and RELEASE it. Acupuncture is mainly for the physical alignment.

I understand it looks really strange TAPPING on your face and body but believe me , it is really effective and gives amazing results.


Behaviour Support

Behaviour Support is about UNDERSTANDING what the behaviour is telling you and what is TRIGGERING it. All behaviour is a form of COMMUNICATION and will always have a TRIGGER, whether it is KNOWN or UNKNOWN. The reason a behaviour can occur is when someone CANNOT express themselves to someone or too themselves and it has gone out of control. .

Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP)

NLP is about how the brain works, how we speak, think, feel and programme information into our brains.  NLP works with our SUBCONSIOUS mind which control 90% of our behaviour and emotions.

Neuro is how we INDIVIDUALLY absorb information through our SENSES, to make sense of them, INTERNALLY and EXTERNALLY, with sounds, images, internal sensations, touch, taste and smell.

Linguistic is how we SPEAK and make a personalised MEANING to the information that is given to us from the world OUTSIDE by assigning language to the INTERNAL images, sounds and feelings, tastes and smells, thus forming everyday CONCIOUS awareness.

Programming is the BEHAVIOURAL response that occurs as a result of neurological FILTERING processes and the meaning we have put into things due to the linguistic map.

NLP is aimed to ENHANCE the healing process. This happens by CHANGING the conscious and subconscious BELIEFS of the person about themselves and the situation or problem. This is all part of their LIMITED BELIEFS that has been programmed. NLP will “RE-PROGRAMME”  Self-limited beliefs by using different techniques and tools.


What people say

Hi I’m Charlie and I have recently taken part in a workshop called ‘a taster of Neuro-Linguistic Programming and Emotional Freedom Techniques’. The workshop was very engaging, active, and enjoyable. I found it very interested and relevant to the children with special needs that I work with. It has also widened my knowledge into what other factors contribute to challenging behaviour and the fun engaging activities were really beneficial making it easy to learn.
Form starting the workshop with no prior knowledge or experience of NLP and EFT, I have definitely gained an insight into both techniques and would recommend the workshop to any who are interested in this field and/or are involved with children and families with learning disabilities.

Case Study: Success with Picture Tapping

Client A’ came to me with a phobia about yoghurt. The thought or sight of it, or even hearing somebody say the word, sent his stress levels spiralling, and he refused outright to say the word himself. Previous therapy for this phobia had been unsuccessful.

After carrying out my initial assessment, I decided Picture Tapping would be the right approach for this client. Picture Tapping uses metaphors and symbols which often allow access to aspects, thoughts and memories that may be difficult to express either verbally or by using other modalities; it helps to break the pattern match.

To avoid using the word ‘yoghurt’, we adopted the name ‘diary product’ throughout our session.
It’s crucially important that my clients feel comfortable and safe before we start any session and so I constantly reassured Client A that there would be no ‘diary product’ in the room while we were working together, unless he was happy to introduce it.

There are lots of different ways to tap with pictures, but my way was to first ask Client A what makes him happy and to draw that picture (images 1 and 2).

These drawings stayed in front of Client A throughout our session so he could look at them whenever he needed to. I then asked him how ‘diary product’ made him feel and to draw that (image 3).

I asked him if he was happy to talk about how it made him feel while he was drawing, and then I tapped on him whilst repeating his words: ‘I feel disgusted, angry, cross, annoyed.’ He became increasingly distressed, but after reassuring him that we could stop the session at any time if he needed to look at his calm happy picture, he drew another picture of how ‘diary product’ made him feel (image 4) whilst I tapped and gently spoke to him.

We stopped and spoke about the emotions that had come up during the tapping and after a short break, Client A began to feel more relaxed. I asked him again how ‘dairy product’ made him feel and to draw this (image 5). All the while I’m tapping on him and repeating his words and talking about what I see.

After another short break, we repeated the process (image 6) but Client A said something wasn’t right so drew another picture (image 7). Whilst he was drawing, Client A said, ‘It’s OK, I don’t have to eat it, the yoghurt’s in the fridge.’ As before, I was tapping on him, repeating his words and offering reassurance.

After he’d finished drawing his final picture, we continued to tap on his happy picture and talk about the things he liked and that made him happy – superman, jazz music – before rounding off the session with 7/11 breathing.

This was an intense 2-hour session but the results were incredible – just look at the difference between images 3 and 7. In the short video below, you can hear Client A talk about the transformation in himself.

As a therapist, my approach is always client-centric and the different techniques I use are based on my assessment of individual client needs and situations. I offer a totally bespoke service, taking the time to listen to and understand my clients – I don’t believe in ‘one size fits all’.

If you need support with phobias or challenging behaviour, please book a call so we can discuss a solution that’s right for you.
