My approach

In the Initial Consultation, we discuss any issues, challenges and life goals and create a bespoke programme tailored to your specific needs. This is not a one cap fits all approach! It becomes a highly-personalised toolkit that you can harness today, tomorrow and at any time in your life and then practise to help with current challenges, historic issues, and anything that may come your way in the future. Whatever has been going on, you can move forward positively from the very first session! We identify the source of any challenges and recognise how they may have affected life to date. Then we quickly move forward positively and we keep going forward until the issues have been resolved or are dissipated. We do so by learning how to manage the challenges with simple, practical techniques based on the latest Neuroscience research and theory and only ones that are proven to work in the clinic.
