About me

With over 20 years' experience as a therapist, I offer full range of Analytical and Cognitive Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy services that are designed to bring about change.  If you are "stuck" and need help to move forwards, change attitudes, habits and old patterns of behaviour, to release emotional pain, and remove barriers to success, then we can work together to make that happen.

Using a wide range of core skills, including:

- NLP techniques
- analytical hypnotherapy
- cognitive hypnotherapy and counselling
- regression (age rather than past life)

My aim is to provide therapy in a safe, supportive environment in a large, dedicated treatment room in a quiet location to enable you to change beliefs, habits, old patterns and limiting behaviours which are currently preventing you from maximising your potential.  You already have all the skills and resources you need, and my aim is to enable you to use those skills and resources to change the way you think and behave, so that you can be the person you really want to be.

My own personal experience of this safe and effective blend of different techniques, adapted to each client's individual needs, means that I fully understand how old thought patterns and behaviours prevent us from being who we truly can be. Each client is treated as a unique individual and each consultation is designed to ensure change occurs during that session, with each client leaving in a more positive emotional state than they arrived, with key exercises, and home practice designed to maximise the effectiveness of the consultation. I can record the hypnotherapy aspect of the session into CD for further reinforcement at home if desired.

I also use a unique biological hypnotherapy which combines my extensive understanding of anatomy and physiology to effect change at a cellular level, by encouraging the body to, for example, speed up the division and multiplication of cells to enhance the healing process.  This is particularly useful in the fields of fertility and pregnancy, sports injuries and sports performance enhancement, memory and exam success, to name a few.

My main areas of work include:

- Weight management, including gastric band therapy
- Substance addiction and abuse
- Smoking cessation and other habits (nail biting, etc)
- SAD, stress management and depression
- Phobias
- Repeating patterns of behaviour
- Hypno-birthing
- Childhood concerns (bed wetting, bruxism, bullying)

I work with children, adults, older adults, individuals, couples, groups and corporate clients and can offer a proven track record.
