I am married with two grown up children and three grand children
I have a previous Military (Army), Police and Legal background.
I am qualified in law by way of a Law Degree from the University of Wales in 1997 and a distinction in the New York Bar examination gained in 2014
As well as being a proud Ambassador (recently accepted) into the Maggie Oliver Foundation I am a Private Investigator ad part time Law Lecturer preparing students for the New York Bar examinations
My interests / hobbies are in the field of Martial Arts and Alternative Therapies.
The therapies which I am qualified in include:
I gained a qualification In April 2005when I qualified as a Certified Hypnotherapist under Terence Watts of the Essex Institute of Clinical Hypnotherapy this was after completion of a
2 year Professional Practitioners course.
My reason for pursuing the course was to be able, after qualifying to help clients with their everyday problems like anxiety, stress and various phobias
as part of the above course I was also trained to use
Briefly, Hypnoanalysis uses various techniques to allow the subconscious mind to reveal the original cause of the problem so that, working together, the client and therapist can understand and resolve the origin of the problem rather than just treat the symptom.
In 2006 I trained under a local Usui Reiki Master Jenifer Thomas (Pontardulais) for my Reiki level 1 and 2, then in 2007 I travelled up to Llandudno where I completed my Reiki Master level (Practitioner / Teacher) qualifications under Padma O’Gara.
As a Reiki Practitioner my aim was to offer the Reiki healing treatment to as wide an audience as possible, hence, I occasionally arrange to give talks to local groups and organizations to ‘spread the word’ as it were also outline the benefits of receiving this awesome treatment.
I also hold qualifications as a Master Hypnotist Practitioner which I gained through the Joseph Clough Training Academy in Cambridge and as a Certified Hypnotist through the National Guild of Hypnotists who are based in Merrimack, New Hampshire. USA both of which were gained by way of training and practical examination in 2007, and both of which are appropriate in conjunction with my Hypnoanalysis therapy
Furthermore I am also privileged through examination and practical experience to hold Membership of the European Institute of Forensic Hypnosis which I am attempting to promote to the legal profession for use in both Criminal and Civil Trials.
The use of Forensic Hypnosis is already widely used in both Europe and America to assist in defendant and witness evidence recall.
I have experience in handling and dealing with clients / patients with physical and mental injuries, along with PTSD.
More importantly, I am an abuse survivor and as a result have also received counselling and help for PTSD after my time within the Armed Forces, I therefore fully appreciate what the Survivors referred to The Maggie Oliver Foundation have been going through.
I feel that this experience holds me in good stead to be able to offer practical skills and experience in my role as one of the Ambassadors with The Foundation
