About me

Helping you help yourself:

Clinical Solution-Focused Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy can help with many issues. By using different techniques within the therapy it can help people gain insights into the core issue/s, and can help them find ways to cope more effectively with life, which in turn can enable them to manage situations in a more productive and effective way. It could provide the helping hand you need to make those changes.

I offer NLP and self-hypnosis tools and techniques to help you in your every day life.

BWRT®’ stands for ‘BrainWorking Recursive Therapy®’, a model of psychology and psychotherapy created by UK professional therapist, Terence Watts, MCGI. Like many other modern therapies, it allows a ‘core of privacy’ so that you do not have to divulge anything you would rather not talk about – in fact, the practitioner only needs to know how you feel and how you would prefer to feel instead. BWRT® is a completely new and different therapy based on the latest discoveries about the way the brain works and how it affects our moods, behaviour and emotions. Only Certified Practitioners have been trained to deliver BWRT® and all have to adhere to a strict ethical code. Find out more at http://www.bwrt.org

BWRT® can often resolve difficulties in just a single session, where many therapies can take a lot longer. So whether you have a problem with stress, anxiety, fears, managing your weight, or something else entirely, arrange a free consultation to see how you can be helped.

My specialisms are helping and supporting with:

Anxiety and stress,
Weight issues
Quit smoking,
Self-esteem, self-worth
Pain management
Life Coaching

- Notwithstanding the above I can help with many more issues, so please ask.

Are you 'sick and tired of being sick and tired' of those old habits, self-sabotaging patterns of behaviour and limiting beliefs you hold about yourself? If so, then now is as good a time as any to start making a change.


Before becoming a Healthcare Professional and qualifying as a Clinical Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist my background was as an Educationalist, holding lecturing and management positions in further and higher education. With a Master’s Degree in Education and Training I mentored and trained staff and students and learned a great deal about the complexity of people and their needs.
Many people, I found, struggled with various levels of stress and anxiety, both on a personal and professional level.

These experiences, plus my personal experience of dealing with grief, stress, depression and illness, and finding Clinical Hypnotherapy beneficial in helping and supporting me get back in control of my life and emotions, influenced my decision to take that leap of faith and change career.

Since then I have had the privilege of helping many people to achieve their goals and aspirations and make the changes to their lives that they wanted to make and who, like me, just needed that extra bit of help. We can all acknowledge the fact that it takes courage to ask for help, but I found it very worthwhile personally and have seen the changes in people professionally as well.

Some Testimonials:

To be able to help people by providing the right therapy to enable change for the better is both rewarding and inspiring:-

"I came slightly apprehensive but I was met with such a friendly approach. Coming here has released me from a straightjacket; realising that I had potential, which is something I hadn't felt before, but I definitely do now. I would most certainly recommend this therapy to anyone who needs a helping hand in their life so that they can enjoy it to the full!"


"Made me a different person. After 8 weeks it has totally changed me. I am so much calmer, and friends and husband have noticed the physical change in me."


“I don’t know what you did to me but it worked! I flew without drugs – cool! Many thanks.”


“Many thanks for your help…I feel so much more relaxed about things than I have before.”

-Ms S

“I can’t thank you enough for the help you gave me to overcome my fear of public speaking.”


"My husband asked me what I wanted for Christmas and I asked for these sessions and they have been the best Christmas present I have ever had." (Weight loss)

-Mrs MT

"...I am in a much better place now thanks to you..."


"I came to see you about 18 months ago to help me with weight loss and it was fabulous."

Care and commitment:

We all, at some time or another, have stressors in our lives or behaviours we would like to change: some examples could include concerns or issues around work stress, social anxiety, public speaking, relationship stressors, self-confidence, fears, phobias, addictions or smoking, weight management, wanting to achieve a healthier lifestyle, to stop binge-eating or drinking too much etc. I find it motivating to be a part of a solution that can help people to make those changes.

Everyone is different and that is why the differing therapies I provide enable me to tailor therapy to your specific needs, because you are unique. All therapy is shaped to achieve, as quickly as possible, the goals and intent of the client and what they want to achieve. Therapy is about offering you, the client, the opportunity to empower yourself by getting control of who or how you want to be.

I offer a high standard of professional care and confidential service at Clinics in Monmouth and Newport, where you can make an appointment for a complimentary, no obligation, 30- minute consultation. Ring 07585 552462 or email monmouthclinic@yahoo.co.uk.

NB - When making an appointment please state the Clinic location you require.


About Therapy:                                                 

Each session is solution-focused and as such is based on or incorporates elements or a blend of techniques from:

*Solution-Focused Brief Therapy,

*Consciousness Therapies.

Also as an Advanced Practitioner BrainWorking Recursive Therapy® I can offer:
                            an advanced model of psychology and psychotherapy created by
                            UK Professional Therapist, Terence Watts MCGI.
                            It is a totally confidential method that doesn't require you
                            to reveal your private information or personal secrets to
                            the therapist and is carried out in a completely conscious state.

I can offer Brainworking Recursive Therapy® Coaching for individuals and organisations. Please ask for details.


Objectives of initial consultation and therapy sessions:

Having that initial consultation to discuss what you want and to evaluate how best to support that is a fundamental first step.

Thereafter, sessions will be tailored to your needs and work towards the most effective and efficient way forward for you, and as you are an individual with your own needs, challenges, aims and goals, these sessions can vary in time-scale, depending on your own specific issues and needs that you wish to address.


  • Sessions are blended to fit your personality, preference, and requirements.
  • Therapy is reviewed, evaluated and re-aligned on an on-going basis to continually                             meet your presenting or changing needs.


Taking that first step to finding out if this is the right therapy for you:

Email or telephone to make your initial consultation and take this opportunity to learn more about Clinical Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy and how it could help you.

If you want to make a change then you have to do something different, because as Walt Disney said:

                                                      'The best way to get started is to
                                                      stop talking and begin doing.'

Further information

Do you:

  • Suffer with anxiety or stress - whether work-related, relationship issue, social issue, personal development issue, in iinterviews or in public speaking engagements?        
  • Want to lose weight, stop binge eating/comfort eating or binge drinking?
  • Want to give up a habit or addiction?
  • Want to quit the smoking habit?
  • Have a fear of flying?
  • Find there is a recurring pattern in your life you want to change?
  • Lack confidence?
  • Suffer with panic attacks?
  • Social phobias?
  • Need personal or professional coaching/mentoring?
  • Want to find the real you again?
  • If your desire is to make changes, to stop undermining yourself, to create a greater balance in your life, to find solutions to issues you are struggling with and if your wish is to achieve a sense of overall wellbeing, then Clinical Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy could be the support you need: helping you make those positive changes you dream of making, but cannot quite get there on your own and need some help and support. Investing in yourself for a change and making you and your health and wellbeing a priority.
  • If you would prefer a non-hypnosis mode of help then consider BrainWorking Recursive Therapy to help and support you make those changes.

By focusing on what you do want rather than what you don't want can make a fundamental difference to you and the way you want to think, interact and behave, whether socially, in work, or with family and friends: as Einstein said 'We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking that created them'.

Taking the first step can be the most difficult, and I understand that from both a personal and professional standpoint. However, there is no better time than the present to choose to start making the changes you want to make. An investment in yourself today could be one of the most important and rewarding steps you take to change your tomorrows.

If you are still wondering whether Clinical Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy or BrainWorking Recursive Therapy (BWRT®) is the right path for you then please telephone me on 07585 552462 or email me at monmouthclinic@yahoo.co.uk to make that FREE 30-minute appointment.
