Key Workers Counselling

I live in Castlethorpe, near Milton Keynes with my wife and family. I graduated from University with a BA Hons degree in Sociology. I then went on to train as a teacher and taught at a variety of different schools for 30 years, before retraining as a Hypnotherapist and Counsellor. Having experienced my own mental health challenges I found a way through these, using hypnotherapy and counselling. The impact of the treatment I received was transformational and inspired me to help other people achieve their goals and peace of mind. I also work with 'Little Miracles', a charity which supports families that have children with additional needs, disabilities and life limiting conditions.
I am committed to helping and understanding each individual client and genuinely care about each person I work with, to ensure that they receive the best possible outcome and treatment available. I do this by providing a professional service and making sure that I am constantly up to date with the latest research into hypnosis and counselling. I look forward to meeting you!
