I am Graham. I am a Helping Practitioner, and I want to help you!
I am all about helping you get to where you want to be or at least heading in the direction of your choice. I use many different modalities from NLP, EFT, Hypnotherapy and Talking and listening therapy. I have been a Mental health worker with children and young people aged 8-18 for 5 years now in my substantial post as a Pupil Support Worker within the local school Cluster, and I have also been a foster carer for nearly 10 years. This experience as well as my own lived mental health experiences have been instrumental in Brave Journeys being created and developed.
Because I have lived experience, I can be truly empathic to the needs of my clients – knowing that they do not want to be fixed, but rather supported to a place where they can find solutions themselves. I am also aware that whilst I do not change people I aspire to be a conduit of change, encouraging, supportive, congruent, honest and above all real.
I use hypnotherapy, EFT, NLP and good old fashioned Talking and listening therapy as my main modalities. I am also a Strategic Life coach supporting clients move quickly to where they want to be in thier lives.
I am also a Scottish Mental Health First Aid Instructor and a Seasons for Growth Trainer and Companion.
