Compassionate, professional, and effective hypnotherapy in Hertfordshire.
What’s stopping you from being all that you could be?
Every one of us is a unique and marvellous human being, capable of great achievements and personal happiness. So why do so many people worry, have trouble sleeping, adopt unhealthy habits, feel nervous, and so on?
It’s because every experience we have, right from when we are babies, has an effect on the way our character develops. Some things make us confident, others teach us to be wary. These lessons are important, but sometimes we need to temper them a little to chime with the modern world. For example, fear of flying is very logical, but if it’s stopping you from getting a job promotion, or enjoying a holiday, then it’s out of control. We need to get you back into balance. Hypnotherapy can help you achieve this gently and quickly.
The answers to help you move on are already there, inside you, but for whatever reason, you are not using them as well as you could. We need to change this. It’s quite natural if you feel uncertain about talking to a therapist, but remember that you are in control at all times, and you are free to be as open as you are comfortable being. My role is to gently help you find ways you can release that great potential within you. I do this by taking time to really understand you as a person so that I can select the therapies that will work best for you.

Sessions and fees
I firmly believe that there is no one-size solution. My therapy sessions are tailored to suit your particular needs - so sessions will be different from one client to the next - even if the issue we are working on seems the same at the outset. I combine hypnotherapy with counselling and psychotherapy skills to produce a unique outcome that is right for you.
I work in two locations in Hertfordshire, but can sometimes arrange a home visit for an additional cost.
Sessions last for 60 minutes and cost £60 per session. Extended duration sessions available on request. I offer reduced rates for key workers and people who are unemployed or on low incomes. Please phone me to ask about these.
If you unable to attend an appointment, please give me 48 hours’ notice (St Albans) or 24 hours’ notice (Bushey), otherwise I may still have to charge for the session.
