About me

I work as a hypnotherapist with a background working as a nurse. I have worked as a hypnotherapist for the last 13 yrs. I work with a wide range of conditions including weight loss, smoking and a hypnotherapist I love working with people that feel that they have lost their way in life or have lost parts of themselves that they want to reconnect with or develop further. As a therapist I feel it's very important to help people reconnect with their passions and make sense out of their life. I have a large interest in helping clients develop their intuition, using meditation and also the use of dreams in therapy.

I have a large interest in working with mental health conditions such a anxiety,depression and ptsd. I also enjoy working with stress related conditions and phobias.  I also have a particular interest in dissociative disorders as well.

I have a very large interest in working with trauma cases and working with people that has had difficult upbringings such as emotional, physical and sexual abuse. I find this area very rewarding and love helping people reconnect with aspects of themselves and come to terms with things that have happened in the past and help them to become their authentic selves, not bogged down by the ghosts of the past.

I have a large interest in the areas of parapsychology and transpersonal psychology and I am studying this as a MSc level with Middlesex university and the Alef trust.
