About me

I am a qualified Solution Focused Hypnotherapist and Integrative Counsellor. I worked in mental health services in the NHS for over thirty years and have a wide experience of dealing with people with most forms of mental distress and illness. For many years I worked as a highly specialist nurse in a team treating people with eating disorders. I now specialise in helping anyone with an anxiety related condition - in particular phobias, obsessive compulsive behaviours, low self-esteem/confidence, post-traumatic anxiety and eating/weight concerns.

I provide Continuous Professional Development training at the Clifton Practice in working with people with disordered eating.

I am also focus on providing anxiety management to professionals working in public services as I recognise the pressures involved in these areas.
