About me

As one of only a handful of Medical Hypnotherapists in the UK who are experienced NHS Doctors, I provide professional Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy services to individuals looking for natural, effective, lasting solutions to their health issues.

With over 22 years clinical expertise, I have conducted tens of thousands of face to face hours clinical hours, helping people heal, grow and lead happier and healthier lives, whatever difficulties life has brought to them; I’d be so honoured to help you too...

Warm, friendly, non-judgemental, I will approach you as a unique individual, recognising that you are the expert on you.

Rather than focusing on medical labels, I take a much broader, more holistic view of your current issues, and never lose sight of the fact that we are all persons in the process of becoming what we were meant to be — balanced and healthy in mind, body, and spirit...

Using my modern integrative approach to therapy, grounded in the latest psycho-therapeutic theory and brain science, interventions are always tailored to my client's unique needs. As a strategic therapist, my aim is always to help you achieve positive and lasting change in the shortest time possible for you.

Hypnotherapy and Hypno-Psychotherapy are powerful dynamic change therapies that can allow clients to make genuine, positive lasting change, much more easily than often imagined by utilising the resources within their subconscious mind. Often clients are unaware what they are doing differently; they just find themselves thinking, feeling and being better!
