Counselling, Life Coaching Cambridge

With over 20 years of experience in the NHS, addiction services and university
counselling/ life coaching, I’m committed to empowering people to build upon their
inner resources to achieve the life they want.

I offer “guided imagery” sessions (like hypnotherapy) – a powerful way to practice
turning your imagination to your advantage. I have helped many people to overcome
addictions (gambling, gaming, sex and/ or pornography, drugs and alcohol) and build
a new and more meaningful life. Whether it’s personal, professional, or academic
success that you are looking for, I am keen to offer my behaviour change expertise
and experience. Sessions are pragmatic and not “all-talk”.

If it’s trauma that you’re dealing with, then I have the skills and experience to aid you.
If you find yourself “over-thinking things” or having trouble sleeping, I can guide you
to escape this cycle and find a more peaceful way of being. We can work side by
side and you will no longer struggle alone.

Join me in a non-judgemental and confidential listening space to discover
imaginative and innovative ways to live life. I use solution-oriented, skills-focused
approaches to support professionals, students, and other clients in reaching realistic
targets, often in just a few sessions.

My approaches include Human Needs Therapy, and other Solution-focussed Brief
Therapy, Life Coaching, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Motivational
Interviewing (M.I), and “guided imagery” (like hypnotherapy).
