I have worked as a holistic therapist for many years , and quickly became aware of the mind / body connection . I realised that for some people , touch therapies triggered deep seated emotions . Sometimes grief , anger , stress, anxiety etc . I used to listen and give advise if I could. Eventually I decided to get some formal training to be more helpful to my clients . I studied NLP, gained a diploma in CBT, attended workshops in mental health first aid for young people , and sand tray therapy .I spent a year studying NCFE levels 1-3 to gain my certificate in listening skills . I am now coming to the end of my studies for a degree in Integrative counselling. I Offer CBT or holistic CBT as talking therapy sessions .
