After qualifying as a social worker in South African in 2002, I moved over to the UK. I worked in London for six months before moving up to Glasgow, Scotland. My main experience as a social worker is in Children and Families settings, including fostering work. I am also a qualified social work Practice Teacher and have worked with many social work students over the years. Since 2016 I have been working in strategic services, supporting policy and practice within Children’s Services.

I qualified as an NLP Coach and Practitioner in 2021 have been working with clients on confidence, ‘Imposter Syndrome’ and generally helping them to achieve their goals.

5. Where are you based?

I am based in Renfrewshire, however work with clients all over the world through video conferencing.

6. How much do you charge, how long is a session and how many sessions will I need?

My fees are as follows:
– Individual Sessions (only £85 per session)
– Bespoke Packages tailored to your individual requirements:
Silver Package (5 sessions – only £375) – saving over 10%!
Gold Package (10 sessions – only £715) – saving over 15%!
– Signature Programmes (see individual programme for fee)

Sessions typically last around one hour.

It is hard to say exactly how many sessions you will need. It very much depends on what your goals are and how deep rooted your negative emotions and limiting beliefs etc. are. Before we proceed I will tell you how many sessions I think will be necessary. Unlike most traditional therapies that may keep you in sessions for a prolonged period focussing on the past, with NLP Coaching and time techniques, I can help you set your goals as well remove any negative emotions, anxiety and limiting beliefs that are holding you back. I will help you develop your own internal resources to move forward without needing my ongoing support!
