Welcome to Quantum Leap Therapy
Professional, Compassionate & Confidential Therapy in Reading Berkshire
I offer Hypnotherapy, Counselling and Psychotherapy in Reading, Berkshire and surrounding areas. We all experience stresses and pressures in the course of our day to day lives, and most of the time we tend to find ways to cope and get through our difficulties on our own. However, there are times when personal crisis strikes, when troubles become too overwhelming, or fears and anxieties become paralysing. These are times when life and emotions become too difficult to deal with alone, but sharing worries and fears with friends and family become equally impossible. At such times talking to a professionaly trained therapist can be most supportive and beneficial.
If you are feeling distressed, depressed, anxious, afraid or simply unhappy with your life, then I provide a safe, non-judgemental, and private space for you to talk through your problems, without being judged, allowing you to explore your thoughts, feelings, relationships, and patterns of behaviour. The care of my clients is of paramount importance to me and I offer a warm, gentle and yet powerful approach to therapy in a comfortable, caring and confidential environment.
Together we can work on uncovering the barriers to accomplishing what you really want and how you want to be. When you become aware of how your patterns of thoughts, behaviours and emotions are keeping you stuck in your life, you become increasingly aware of how to change them and discover the best way to move forward. Together we can explore and identify the real underlying cause of your current issues or difficulties so that you can release and let go of your negative thoughts, emotions and behaviours.
My Therapeutic Approach
I offer a professional, compassionate & confidential therapy using an integrative, client centered, and holistic approach which focuses equally on mind and body. As a Counselor & Practitioner I believe that good health and wellbeing– physical, emotional, and psychological – depends on the mind and body working together in harmony; so I offer help not only for physical symptoms but also for any underlying emotional causes. I work one-to-one with adults over the age of 18 and combine counseling and hypnotherapy wherever possible.
Therapists differ in their training, orientation and approach. My training is integrative, which means that I work predominantly with a person-centred (working with the here and now) and psychodynamic (working with issues from the past) approaches to counselling and hypnotherapy. I also work with a solution focused approach and brief therapy using CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), NLP (Neuro-LInguistic Programming) and Coaching (goal setting and achievement).

However, research shows that the most important element in effective therapy is the relationship between therapist and client. Therefore, I offer you a warm, safe, compassionate and non-judgemental environment which allows you to gain trust in me as your therapist and the therapeutic process. I work closely with you offering you my empathy, understanding, and acceptance which in turn create the conditions for personal growth. At times, in the safety of the therapy room, I may also present you with challenging questions so that you can explore, identify and release any emotional ties that may be linked to your past which may be holding you back. I respect your autnomy at all times and work at your own pace. I would never give you advice or lead you where you don’t want to go. You set the agenda and my role is to facilitate the changes that you want to make.
Therapy sessions are tailored specifically for your individual needs and are conducted in a highly professional & ethical manner. You will receive the support you need to help you work through any emotional or psychological difficulties you may be experiencing.

What problems or issues we might work with and what I offer

In therapy I only work with what my clients bring into the room.

Please see ‘Help With…’ for a full list of treatments and if you’d like to discuss any particular concern, that isn’t listed there, then please feel free to contact me to discuss your individual needs.
