About Me

Steph Miller BA (Hons), PG Dip Psychology, DSFH

For as long as I can remember I have been interested in psychology, self-development and complementary therapies.  And when I experienced, and successfully overcame, a period of crippling anxiety in my early 20’s (which I genuinely believed for a time I would have to live with forever) I became more interested in the power of the mind and importance of adopting a holistic approach to well-being.  There were so many things which contributed to my heightened stress and subsequent anxiety which I can see so clearly now.

I went on to study for a Postgraduate Diploma in Psychology and gained experience working in a Psychology Service delivering Cognitive Behavioural Therapy self help courses, unsure exactly what I wanted to do, but confident that if I followed my passion it would lead me in the right direction.

It was at this point I became more interested in the role of the subconscious and natural healthcare on well-being and I experienced first hand how positive and empowering hypnotherapy and kinesiology can be when you are committed to change.  I decided to study for a Diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy and a Foundation Certificate in Kinesiology to further my knowledge in these areas and apply everything I had learnt, both personally and professionally, to help others overcome hurdles to their emotional and physical health (which are linked in so many ways).

I am passionate about both science based psycho-therapeutic techniques and natural healthcare approaches and am always learning, not only from Continuing Professional Development courses and regular supervision with experienced therapists, but also from my clients who have chosen to work with me.
