Dee Phillips – CBT Counsellor / Psychotherapist
I qualified as a nurse at the East Glamorgan General Hospital in 1988, and went on to work within
different disciplines of nursing throughout my nursing career. In my later nursing career, I was
involved in setting up new clinics and new initiatives for the local health board as a Cognitive
Behavioural Therapist. I never imagined that I would be a counsellor. During my general nurse
training we could make a decision whether we would work with general physical health, or mental
health. Mental health and issues around people’s struggles was always something I was interested
in, but when I went to visit the mental health ward there were people locked up in wards which
absolutely horrified me. I became passionate over the years about people’s struggles, and I found
myself as a nurse often concentrating as much on people’s psychological wellbeing as their physical
wellbeing, and one day a lady who had a mastectomy, and her husband, needed my assistance psychologically,
and she suggested I was a natural counsellor and helper.
In 2000 I decided to do a small introductory course to counselling, and became absolutely invigorated and passionate about this skill, so I continued to do an advanced diploma in therapeutic counselling, and then expanded by knowledge with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Life Coaching, Personal and Performance Coaching, some complimentary therapies, and more latterly, I am currently extending my practice into Transactional Analysis.
I believe that we can all fulfil our potential with the right tools and understanding of how to do this. Sometimes my practice involves looking deeply into the past, but other times clients just need strategies and tools to enable them to function in the here and now. I am accredited with the BACP, a member of UKATA, and Member of the EMDR association.
The services I offer are:
Cognitive behavioural therapy
Integrative Counselling including Transactional Analysis.
Personal and Performance Coaching.
Stress management and relaxation
Any strategy that involves being stuck psychologically in a place where you are unable to fulfil your potential.
If you are in individual needing help, or a representative of a company and you would like to know more about my service please contact me on 07968 069616.

Danuta Nash – Sports and Remedial Massage Therapist, Reflexologist and AiM practitioner
Danuta is VTCT level 3 & 4 qualified and fully insured (I.P.T.I) Reflexologist, Sports and Remedial Massage
therapist with over 8 years of experience working within clinic environment but also at various sports clubs
(Northampton Saints), sporting and charity events such as London Marathon or Rugby world cup.
Over the years Danuta has attended numerous courses and that enables her to combine various
techniques to tailor the treatments for each individual client.
Her biggest passion, however, have always been feet. As strange as this may sound, feet are incredibly important part of our body, not just for movement, but for our general health and wellbeing and through her practice Danuta has realised, that for many of us feet are somewhat a forgotten body part. Through her fascination with feet she had discovered Reflexology. Reflexology is non intrusive complementary health therapy, based on a theory that different points on the feet, lower leg, face and hands correspond with different areas of the body.
Last year Danuta attended a week long course in London learning Anatomy in Motion (AiM). AiM is a system developed by Gary Ward, an expert in human movement and anatomy and author of “what the foot”. The philosophy behind AiM is that the body has the ability to fix itself. And most of the time the “fixing” starts with our feet. This course enabled Danuta to understand the importance of searching for a real cause of her clients problems and to think beyond the textbook treatments.
