How we can help you

Counselling & Psychotherapy

We all experience times in our lives when we feel stuck. Things just don’t feel right and we are not quite sure where to turn. Life can throw you challenges - leaving feelings of uncertainty, unhappiness and an inability to think clearly.


There may be difficult and distressing events in your life, such as a bereavement, divorce, health issues or job concerns. Or you may have a more general underlying feeling of anxiety or a dissatisfaction with life.

Counselling provides you with the space to learn more about yourself, to work through your feelings and sometimes to make life changing decisions. Our passion is to help you be just who you want to be.​

CBT 30

CBT stands for Cognitive Behaviour Therapy.  I created the CBT 30, at North Oak, for a wide variety of conditions such as anxiety or depression. CBT focuses on how your thoughts, beliefs and attitudes affect your feelings and behaviour.

For example, if you interpret a situation negatively then you might experience negative emotions as a result, and those bad feelings might then lead you to behave in a certain way.​

CBT 30 was created by North Oak and is designed to help clients, with a variety of conditions. The 30 minute CBT therapy gives you tasks between each session. These tasks are designed specifically for you to use in your life to help you to make positive changes to the way you behave by challenging negative thinking patterns.

For more information see our 'CBT 30' page.


Hypnosis is a state of deep relaxation in which the subconscious mind is made more accessible. You are not asleep merely both physically and mentally relaxed. Although hypnosis is often seen as a means of entertainment, it is a powerful tool for change. 

We have found it extremely successful for treating a variety of conditions such as stopping smoking, sports psychology, phobias, confidence building, anxiety and stress, depression, weight loss and many more.

Hypnosis is totally natural and safe – you already experience trance regularly, such as when you become ‘lost’ in a book, whilst driving (were those traffic lights actually green?) or when concentrating intensely and loosing track of time. You are always in control and  remain aware of yourself and your surroundings and you can voluntarily terminate the trance at any point.

For more information see our 'Hypnotherapy' page.

Life & Career Coaching

We also offer Life Coaching. Our aim is to enable our clients to have the tools that can bring about success and good health in their lives. We do this by ensuring our clients have access to a wide variety of techniques they can use daily.
