I have always been fascinated about how different we all are, especially when coping and reacting to difficult situations. One person may not be able to cope or spirals into a depression; yet another person sees it as a challenge and becomes stronger and grows!
I previously worked in Sales and Management, however this never truly allowed me to be my authentic self. I have always been someone that naturally helps other people. I found that colleagues, family and friends came to me for help and working together they became more fulfilled and reached their potential. Keen for more information and knowledge I studied Psychology to degree level, which gave me an amazing insight into how we think, act and behave.
I wanted to go into a new direction that really helped people and had long-term beneficial results. Therefore I studied a professional course in Hypnotherapy, which gave me the tools and knowledge to really make a difference to people that had a real desire for change in their lives.
I have been a full time hypnotherapist and personal coach for over 12 years and run a successful practice. Desire for Change is based in Thatcham, which is perfect for people living in the Thatcham area and really convenient if you are travelling from Reading or Newbury. However, I offer sessions via Zoom, which my clients worldwide find very convenient. I am also a trainer for Weller Associates Hypnotherapy Training.
My approach to therapy is client centred and I aim to educate and empower my clients to enable them to make positive choices and changes in their lives. I am a member of the General Hypnotherapy Register and am bound by their strict code of ethics, ensuring a professional, caring and confidential approach. I am also a Graduate member of The British Psychological Society and am fully covered by professional indemnity insurance.
