My name is Jonathan and I work as an accredited Neuro Linguistic Psychotherapist. I am registered with The United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and I am bound by their operating practices and code of ethics. I am also a qualified Hypnotherapist, a master practitioner of Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) and a practitioner of Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) and trained in Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR). Consequently, I provide clients with a proven, regulated and trustworthy service; built upon many years of study and clinical practice.
As well as managing my own private practice, I am also the Director of Therapy in a group of children's homes in Staffordshire; where we care for children who have suffered the effects of trauma and abuse. I have undertaken extensive further training in the areas of attachment, trauma and Dissociation. I regularly make clinical assessments and design therapy programmes for the treatment of children with dissociative disorders. I am amongst only a handful of therapists working in the UK, who are trained in Dr Bruce Perry’s Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics and can offer this in-depth assessment. My interest in this field has led to my research of how trauma and its resulting effects can impact upon brain function and personal development. This led me to deliver a presentation to the International Society for the Study of Trauma and Dissociation, in Montreal during 2011.
As well as being registered with UKCP I am an accredited member of the Neuro Linguistic Psychotherapy and Councelling Association (NLPtCA) and a full member of The Hypnotherapy Association and a member of The Association for the Advancement of Meridian Energy Techniques (AAMET).
I live in Staffordshire, follow football, have a keen interest in music and enjoy travel, food and wine. I have been involved in therapy of all kinds for 15 years, during which time I have enhanced my potential both academically and practically, so that I now have the full confidence to help people overcome a wide range of personal issues.
I am also a published author. My book "Coping with Kids" is a simple and straight forward guide for anyone who looks after children for any length of time.
