My initial background was medical, working for many years as a EMT Medic for Welsh Ambulance working in a very stressful enviroment, attending medical emergency's. I was unfortunately involved in an RTC one day which not only affected me physically at the time but also took its toll on my Mental Health which meant I could not return to work as an EMT. I suffered for many months with stress and anxiety which eventually restricted the size of my world to just my home and not being able to leave my house at all. I was very lucky to have a wonderful understanding and supportive family, good friends and colleagues one of which was a Mental Health Phycologist and Hypnotherapist, who after a mix of therapies, Hypnotherapy, CBT, DBT and Mindfulness helped me get back to normal life (well normal for me anyway). As I had now left the Welsh Ambulance it was time to find a new Job and because of my own Mental Health problems I discovered that I had fantastic insight into this area, and started working in Mental Health first on the acute Wards, then later after re-training in the Community working in primary care delivering therapies, in both Groups and 1 to 1 based on current DBT, CBT, Mindfulness techniques I have gleamed working in Primary Care Mental Health .
During this time I was also trained and passed my Professional Hypnotherapy Diploma. I was also taking extra other training courses in and achieved the following diploma's Professional Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) Diploma and a diploma as a Nuero Linguistic Programming (NLP) practitioner.I still work for Community Mental Health several days a week as I have a real passion in this area and it helps me keep up with any advances within mental health, which helps me be a better Therapist
