Training, qualifications & experience
My experience as a Hypnotherapist, as a Life Coach and in life generally, has shown me time and time again how very easy it can be to hugely change our lives for the better by taking just small steps towards achieving what we want to achieve.

This training lead to a full diploma qualification (DHP) and the Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma (HPD) (considered the gold standard of hypnotherapy qualifications and also externally accredited by the NCFE (Level IV). I have undertaken further training in hypnotherapy for easier childbirth, OCD, eating disorders, psychoneuroimmunology , NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) and Solution Focused Brief Therapy. I am also qualified to supervise other hypnotherapists.
