What happens when I make an appointment to come and see you?
After you contact me to book an appointment, I will email confirmation to you and attach my ‘New Client’ form for you to fill out. This form can either be emailed back to me before your appointment or bring with you. This avoids spending time during your first appointment filling out the form and gives us more time together to start you on your road to recovery, whether that is emotionally, physically or both.
How many appointments do I need?
The answer to this question depends upon what you want to resolve. Unfortunately, I don’t have a ‘magic wand’ that I can wave to solve all your problems in one 90-minute session.
I suggest that you commit to a minimum number of three sessions to start with. It is of course up to you as to how many sessions you feel is right for you.
I am really stressed and unhappy with my life, what can you do to help?
Once I have an understanding of your background and what is going on in your life, I will draw from my experience of using a number of different modalities to help you to make the changes that you need to create a more joyful life for yourself. This could include some physical therapy such as CranioSacral Therapy or Access The Bars which help your body and brain to function more efficiently. Or by creating some different strategies for you, i.e. different ways of handling situations. I will teach you self-help techniques; giving you new resources to help you make better choices. I can also help you to discover within yourself what you really want in your life and how to create it.
I have been told I have PTSD and panic attacks.
Can you help me cope with this?
It has been well documented that Emotional Freedom Technique and Access The Bars have been very helpful to many people suffering with PTSD and other related symptoms. Sometimes CranioSacral Therapy is useful to add into the treatment plan too. Why? When the bones of your skull are not moving freely as they should, your brain cannot function properly and can be the cause of your emotional distress.
In short, I use a combination of modalities to give you the best possible results.
My partner and I need some help in resolving issues that are damaging our relationship. Can you help?
I am very happy to help you and your partner. To begin, I would prefer a session with each of you separately before seeing you together as a couple so that I can understand each person’s point of view. However, if a one -on- one session for each of you does not work for you, I am happy for you to come as a couple from day one.
Most of the time relationship problems are caused by a breakdown of communication. When both partners are willing to try something different I can teach new communication skills that can enhance the relationship and get it back on track.
I have had back pain and migraines for a long time. Nothing seems to work.
Can you help me?
I too suffered backpain and migraines having had several bad falls off horses when I was younger. The only modality that enabled my body to heal and let go of the pain was CranioSacral Therapy. CranioSacral Therapy was so beneficial for me that I felt compelled to learn how to be able to use this therapy to help others. Therefore, I would recommend that you give this therapy a try. Depending upon your history, I may add other therapies into your treatment plan to give you the best result possible.
Do you work with children or do you only see adults?
I am happy to work with people of all age groups. Children respond well to the therapies that I use.
Can you help resolve issues between family members or work colleagues?
I can help anyone resolve their issues if they are open to learning some new skills and perspectives.
I have pain because of a car accident. Can you help me?
I have helped many people to recover from pain resulting from injury e.g. car accidents, sporting injury, falls, surgery etc. I will draw from several different modalities to help you gain the best result possible.
How do I know that the therapies you use work?
The therapies that I offer my Clients are the therapies that have been of most help to me in my own healing journey. I will never ask you to experience anything that I have not already experienced myself with excellent results.
