My first task is to get you feeling better quickly because I know that this will relieve so much of your hopelessness and fear and it will get us working to getting your life back on track.  And there is so much I can do to help you to feel better.

I am trained in the Human Givens approach and these profound and revolutionary insights are the basis for my work.

If any of the following questions resonate, I am sure I will be able to help you and quickly too.

One: Are you not coping – tired all the time, your head not working properly and full up with ruminations and worries?

I will help you to feel better quickly as you become hopeful of the prospect of change. I will explain why you are feeling so bad and then guide you with tailor made tools and advice you can use right away.  And in that first session, I will do most of the talking.  Go here for much more on the help that is there for you

Two: Are you fearful too much of the time?  Are you vigilant and watchful and sometimes are you overwhelmed with panic and dread?

I will help you to feel better quickly by identifying the source of your anxieties and then clearing them with the use of trance tools and practical advice as necessary.  And again, I will do most of the talking in that first session and be very precise in the questions I ask and the explanations I give.  Go here for much more detail of how I will help you.

Three: Are you drowning in addictions and bad habits that are destroying your capacity to live the life you would wish to and leaving you humiliated and helpless?

 I will help you to be feeling better by explaining how this addictive behaviour has taken over and the steps you need to take to get free and be in control. Go here for much more detail of how I will help you.

This website is a treasure trove for all who are laid low by the mental and emotional problems of our modern life

First off, you can read my straightforward explanations of what causes depression, anxieties of all kinds, angers and addictions. For many of you these explanations will be surprising and liberating. They are based on the profound ideas of the Human Givens approach and my clinical experiences in using these ideas in over ten years of successful private counselling practice.

How I plan to relieve your emotional and mental pain?

  • By a quick injection of hope and mental energy
  • By clearing your head space – of foolish fears, bad memories and damaging habits
  • By shifting your focus to what is good and useful in your life experiences and belief systems
  • By helping you to take the first practical step, which will then lead onto the next … and the next

There is a well established tradition of therapy which leads attention to what works and to your strengths and resources and to the use of the trance language of influence. My Human Givens training and my practice over many years is suffused in this.

Trance/hypnosis is not magic or scary and I hope you will discover just how amazing it can be

Trance will probably play a big part in your recovery – to experience relaxation, remove trauma memories, clear bad habits and rehearse the change you yearn for.   And that’s just for starters. In skillful hands hypnosis can help enormously.

And while we are on the subject of trance, do try out my free audios, which cover a wide range of subjects. Go here. They will get you in the way of how I work and may be all you need.

You need to know what I will NOT be doing in our therapy together

  • No endless talking about your problems
  • No long lists of “health tips” or statements of the “bleeding obvious” that leave you feeling helpless
  • No impossibly difficult advice before you are ready – such as to meditate or begin an exercise programme
  • No focus on those repeating thoughts that you don’t need to be reminded are crazy and foolish.

Finally, a few words about me

I am not your typical counsellor. First off, I am now in my late sixties and am pretty well housebound with an atypical type of Multiple Sclerosis (MS). This affects my mobility but nothing much else as otherwise I am pretty healthy (touch wood).

My record and many testimonials show that I am an excellent therapist.  Why is that? I believe it is because my background in business plus my Human Givens training and having to live with chronic MS gives me authority and flexibility that puts clients at their ease and means they can have confidence in my approach.

Clients come to my new home in St Austell, Cornwall.  I also see clients from all over the world using Zoom or Skype – as well as through the length and breadth of the UK.

This video is now five years old but remains as relevant and true as then.
