Welcome to Quantum Leap Therapy
I offer Professional, Compassionate & Confidential Hypnotherapy, Psychotherapy & Counselling in Reading Berkshire. I’m also a Master Practitioner in Eating Disorders & Obesity and specialise in Weight Management, Anorexia, Bulimia, & Binge Eating Disorder. I work one-to-one with adults over the age of 18 and combine Hypnotherapy with Counselling wherever possible.
Although I specialise in Weight Management & Eating Disorders, I’m also experienced in treating a wide range of issues including anxiety and panic attacks, stress related issues, low self esteem and confidence, depression, fears and phobias, grief/loss and bereavement, trauma and abuse.
Why choose Hypnotherapy, Counselling and Psychotherapy?
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.

Counselling for Eating Disorders offers you support for anorexia, bulimia, binge eating. Counselling allows you to work through your eating distress & body image issues including , chronic dieting or restrictive eating, food cravings, obsessions, emotional and compulsive eating. The primary purpose of Eating Disorders Counselling is to facilitate positive change & recovery from emotional, habitual, and chaotic eating patterns, and most importantly to restore a healthy attitude to food.
My Therapeutic 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).
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 autonomy 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 physical, emotional or mental difficulties you may be experiencing.
How can we work together?
I believe it’s important for you to feel comfortable and safe working with me as your therapist. For this reason, I offer a 30 minutes FREE consultation for you to get to know me before you make a decision whether you want to work with me. The initial consultation gives us the opportunity to discuss your current difficulties and goals for therapy, to raise any questions you may have, and to see whether we can work together. There will be no pressure for you to make a commitment at this point, unless it feels right for you to do so.
What’s the Next Step?
If you wish to have an informal discussion about your current difficulties or to explore how Hypnotherapy and Counselling can help you, then please contact me and I will be more than happy to discuss how I may support you or to answer any questions you might have.
