About me

With over nineteen years experience as a therapist, I’ve been helping people with many life issues such as feeling unhappy, anxious, in pain, unmotivated, tied to a habit, trapped by a phobia, sleep-deprived, suffering at work or school and many other concerns.

Extraordinarily powerful and effective, hypnotherapy can provide positive and lasting
solutions for a range of psychological, emotional and habit-related issues experienced at home, work, school, college or elsewhere.

I accept referrals from individuals, parents/guardians on behalf of children and teens, employers, Counsellors, GPs, Social Workers, Human Resource Managers, Self-Help groups and other interested organisations.

Visit my website for more information about the way that I work.  Email or give me a call if you have any queries or would like to book an appointment.
