Helping you to make the changes that you need and want in your life
In today's world most people face pressures and challenges everyday. Whilst we all need some pressure in our lives and we can indeed thrive under pressure sometimes the balance becomes out of sync leading to problems such as:-
- anxiety/stress/low mood
- panic attacks
- digestion problems
- eating disorders
I also help people to maximise their personal performance e.g. increase confidence in themselves, making effective presentations, overcoming exam nerves, sports performance etc..
Below is some information on hypnotherapy - my website contains further information should you wish to find out more (the link to my website is in the personal details box above).
How can hypnotherapy help and how does it work?
Hypnotherapy is now recognised as one of the most effective ways to make positive changes that you need in your life. The NHS recognises it as a complementary therapy and the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has recently recognised hypnotherapy as a treatment for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) in those who haven't responded to other treatments.
It works quite simply by you relaxing sufficiently to allow the hypnotherapist to make suggestions, which you have agreed with, to your subconscious mind which is far more powerful than your conscious mind. You are in control at all times and will be fully aware of everything that is said to you and of your surroundings.
Other approaches which may also be used in addition to hypnotherapy includes:-
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) which is a talking treatment that focuses on how your thoughts, beliefs and attitudes affect your feelings and behaviour and teaches you coping skills for dealing with different problems.
Thought Field Therapy (TFT - also known as Tapping) which is an ancient healing technique, used for the relief and removal of trauma, phobias, grief, anger, pain etc.. It involves the client tapping certain parts of their body to ensure any blockages in the body's energy flow (based on Chinese medicine's meridian points) are removed.
Spiritual Healing which is a natural energy therapy that complements conventional medicine by treating the whole person – mind, body and spirit. Healers act as a conduit for transferring healing ‘universal’ energy to the person who needs it and the benefits can be felt on many levels – physical, mental and emotional. No faith is required and it is suitable for most people including children and animals.
How many sessions are required
With the exception of smoking cessation which normally requires only two sessions (most clients give up on the first session but some prefer to cut down in week one and give up in week two) the number of hypnotherapy treatment sessions required will vary dependent upon each client's needs. At the first session, based on the assessment made, I will provide you with an indication of the length of the treatment anticipated.

I first experienced hypnotherapy over 20 years ago to help me deal with a traumatic life event and I have used it since both personally and professionally to help me overcome subsequent challenging issues and achieve my desired goals. Having spent over 20 years in financial management and lecturing roles I decided that I wanted to change direction and help people to overcome their issues and achieve their goals just as I had been helped many years before.
I trained on a one to one basis with Dr Lyn Bateman, who has over 38 years experience of treating patients using hypnotherapy. I qualified as an Advanced Hypnotherapy Practitioner and subsequently completed a Postgraduate Diploma in Clinical and Medical Hypnosis. Additionally I completed a Postgraduate Certificate in Counselling Skills at the University of South Wales and most recently I have studied Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) at Cardiff University.
