Welcome to Horizon
A little about me. Having completed my Diploma in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) recognised by the NHS and GMC (General Medical Council).
CBT is a goal- orientated talking therapy treatment that takes a hands-on approach to problem-solving. CBT aims to understand problems in terms of relationship between thoughts, feelings and behaviour it encourages the development of personal goals and coping strategies that help change unhealthy thinking styles or patterns of behaviour. As a qualified Executive Coach I am able to integrate Neuro -Linguistic Programming (NLP) into our sessions in order to enhance your therapy if required.
Experienced in working with a wide range of individuals with various needs; stress, anxiety, depression, addictions, family problems, self esteem and even career changes as well as many others. I offer a safe, non-judgemental and confidential environment to explore and empower the people I meet. At Horizon we adhere to a strict ethical framework and are all fully insured and DBS checked.
I am passionate about all we do at Horizon and am fortunate to see the positive changes our clients make during their journey in therapy.
Prior to becoming a self-employed therapist, I enjoyed a career working as a business development consultant and account manager. During many years of working in business development I gained an interest in NLP and the powerful techniques used to motivate positive change. Over the last 16 years I have gained experience practicing NLP techniques and went on to study this as part of my Executive Coaching. I have utilised these techniques whilst working with teams of people, motivating and implementing positive strengths within them. Prior to counselling and business I lived and worked in Cost Rica aiding underprivileged children and adults, this has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. I believe these varied life experiences combined with my additional qualifications and training enables me to be a successful counsellor providing a versatile and empathetic therapy service.
