You can be assured of a professional and confidential service at all times.
I am a member of the Association of Profession Hypnosis and Psychotherapy (APHP) which has some of the UK strictest membership requirements.
Continual Professional Development - In the same way as Health Care professionals, I am required to undertake continual professional development ensuring my skills and knowledge are always up to date. This requires me to attend accredited educational events and courses to keep my knowledge up to date and further expand my knowledge.
Annual Supervision - In a similar way to counsellors and other talking therapist professionals, a further requirement and safeguard is that I undergo face to face supervision with an APHP accredited supervisor who ensures I continue to meet the membership criteria and fit to practice Hypnotherapy.
Client protection and safety
Further more in the unlikely event of an issue with your therapy you can approach the APHP to mediate and take appropriate action on any issues. Clients also have the protection from professional indemnity insurance if any compensation is appropriate.
Therapy is ALWAYS conducted in the strictest of confidence which is essential for effective therapy.
Clinics and Venues
My main clinic is based at home in Jarrow, which is friendly, professional and has comfortable surroundings. Home visits are available for certain conditions and can be arranged.
A Clinic-Therapy centre appointment can be booked locally (list of local clinics) if a client is more comfortable with this arrangement, however this will incur extra charges which will be discussed at your free consultation.
