265 Upper Street
I'm an Oxbridge-educated hypnotherapist and mindfulness coach who specialises in clients with any kind of confidence, anxiety, insomnia, self-esteem or self-control issues.
I have a Master's degree from the University of Oxford in Psychology, Philosophy and Physiology and a Certificate in Hypno-Psychotherapy from the National College of Hypnosis and Psychotherapy. I'm a registered member of the National Society of Hypnosis, Psychotherapy and Mindfulness. I am also a registered yoga teacher (Yoga Alliance).
I tailor my approach to suit you rather than trying to fit you to a standard hypnotherapy script and I use only evidence-based techniques. My academic background included neurophysiology and the study of neuroplasticity which underlies all my techniques and approaches.
A typical session with me will be half spent talking about your week or your feelings, and then the other half in a deep relaxation session, during which we can walk through situations you find tricky, as well as learn to be more relaxed in body and mind. The relaxed state is also excellent for developing focus and directing your energies on areas of your life that you feel would benefit from that.
Hypnosis can also be used to unlock thoughts or memories from the past that are relevant to how you feel now, so that you can be free to find a more healthy way forward.
You will remain fully conscious and in control during hypnosis, and will not, under any circumstances, be made to cluck like a chicken! You may find, however, that change is surprisingly easy once your subconscious is involved in the process.
My fees are £50 per hour if you come to my clinic on Thursdays evenings between 5-9pm Canonbury Natural Health Centre, Room 3, First floor, 265 Upper Street, London N1 2UQ (between Angel and Highbury & Islington tube stations) or £150 if you would like me to come to your London office at any other time.
My available hours are:
Mon: 8am – 9pm
Tues: 8am – 6pm
Wed: 8am – 9pm
Thurs: 8am – 4pm, clinic 5-9pm
Fri: 8am – 7pm
The length and frequency of therapy is up to you. Some clients find that a handful of weekly or fortnightly sessions is all they need, sometimes therapy can be longer-term over several months or years, it depends entirely on the value you are getting from it. I never put pressure on clients to invest more time or money than they choose to.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like to talk on the phone before committing to an appointment.
