How do you decide that I am the right expert to help you?
My aim has always been to bring out the best in people. I’ve had a long and varied career working with individuals and businesses, giving me a range of experience in studying, researching and training the human mind and behaviour. I have a particular interest in helping people reduce anxiety.
As a researcher at the Universities of York and Hull, I developed ways of assessing potential in people who wanted to further their own education and skills. I enjoy passing on knowledge about what makes us think, feel and behave the way we do, and for a while I was a lecturer, sharing my enthusiasm with Psychology students.
Understanding people was an asset in my work for Government watchdogs, representing the needs of ordinary people to big organisations like the Post Office and Rail Companies. I’ve always been curious about the individual differences in people so took an opportunity to advise on psychometric assessment for UK and European projects, and for a few years I trained business professionals for the world leading company in psychological testing.
I’m interested in really getting to know people, guiding their personal and professional development, so in 2011 I set up my own company to do this and MindMakeover Personal Development was created based on practical, positive psychology. I work with clients here in York and across the UK. Some people travel across the country to work with me, and when this isn’t possible I can sometimes work via a secure online platform. I also supervise other therapists in the UK and Worldwide.

I’m a Chartered Psychologist and Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society. Chartered status is the benchmark of professional recognition for psychologists. It is the gold standard, reflecting the highest standards of psychological knowledge, expertise, experience, competence and reputation. Chartered status requires high levels of academic attainment, supervised practice, applied experience and a commitment to lifelong learning.
As a Chartered Psychologist I successfully completed 2 degrees in Psychology – a BSc with First Class Honours and then an MSc followed by 3 years supervised work. Having completed approved specialist training in Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing, I am pleased to be able to offer EMDR here in York.
After several years training to an Advanced level in BWRT®, I am now also the Senior Examiner and Supervisor for BWRT® Practitioners. I was invited to become a founder member of the British Brainworking Research Society BBRS where I am on the management board.
I trained extensively in Hypnotherapy and gained the Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma along with Diplomas in Hypnotherapy, NLP and Coaching. I’m a Senior Practitioner on the General Hypnotherapy Register and hold the gold standard General Qualification in Hypnotherapy Practice. As an accredited Hypnotherapy Supervisor, I support the work of many UK based hypnotherapists. I’m registered for the discipline of hypnotherapy with the UK regulator, the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council, which enhances public protection.
