I am a Clinical Hypnotherapist, EFT Practitioner and Fertility Specialist Practitioner based in Motspur Park, South London. I'm passionate about what I do and really do believe that anything is possible when you believe in yourself.
Many of my clients come to see me needing help with anxiety and stress, which can be crippling, but there are many techniques that may be able to help change the way you think. Changing the way your think, changes the way you behave and ultimately how you feel and this is very much the approach I use.
I am also a qualified hypnobirthing teacher working either on a one to one basis at mum's home or in small group classes and am especially keen to work with women or couples who are 'high risk', over 35, have had previous difficult births or have suffered Post Natal Depression.
I am also a Hypnosis for Fertility specialist, helping couples with unexplained infertility as well as those embarking on IVF.
Why See Me
What drew me to training as a hypnotherapist was my own life long struggle with depression and social anxiety. When I developed crippling health anxiety in 2009, I realised that unless I challenged and took control of my fears, my anxieties would only escalate. Hypnotherapy provided the means for me to learn to take back control of my life and this is why I love passing on these techniques to others. I understand how crippling anxiety, in all its forms, can be and how isolating depression can be, but I truly do believe that when you find the right person to work with, change can happen.
As a solution focused therapist, I use a combination of hypnosis, coaching, NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming), CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) and Havening Techniques to find the best way forward for my clients. Sessions are reinforced with mp3s (or CDs) and clients are encouraged to make use of them to compound suggestions made in the session.
Hypnotherapy is not magic and requires full participation (and consent) from the client, but it is also a unique partnership between therapist and client, which is why I offer a free initial consultation of up to half an hour in order to build a solid foundation to work from.
I am an Anxiety UK Approved Therapist. Anxiety UK is a national registered charity proving support to those affected by anxiety disorders. They not only provide valuable support and information, they also allow members to access discounted therapy including hypnotherapy, CBT and NLP. I am so pleased and proud, to be associated with them.
