About me

I am a fully qualified and accredited clinical and cognitive behavioural hypnotherapist, with many years experience of working with difficult and challenging cases. If you are genuinely committed to changing your unwanted habits or unhealthy and limiting behaviour I can help you change permanently, and for the better. My methods are simple, explainable, solution focused and evidence based.
I will listen to you respectfully, positively and with absolute confidentiality. I offer safe, targeted, powerful psychotherapeutic and hypnotic techniques, allowing you to reach your goals and regain personal control of your life.
Most people can achieve significant and long-lasting results with hypnotherapy after four to six sessions. However, some specialist treatments, (such as the NHS acknowledged treatment for irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and protocols for smoking cessation or weight control) can take fewer or more sessions.
Because every patient is different every treatment I give is uniquely appropriate to that person.
I might use traditional and waking hypnosis, Neuro-Lingusitic Programming, (NLP), Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy, (CBH) and Eye Movement Desensitisation and Re-processing, (EMDR).

My qualifications and problems I regularly treat.

I was one of the first graduates to gain an MSc. in Clinical Hypnotherapy and Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy at:

  • The University of West London
  • The London College of Clinical Hypnosis

I am also a member, registered with and approved by the following industry standard regulatory bodies:

  • The British Society of Clinical Hypnosis, (BSCH)
  • The Complimentary Natural Healthcare Council, (CNHC) register member.
  • The Royal Society of Medicine, (RSM), Senior Affiliate Member.
  • Anxiety UK, approved therapist.

As a general practice clinical hypnotherapist I am experienced at helping people with a wide variety of psychological and physical problems. These include:

  • Generalised anxiety (including panic attacks)
  • Phobias (fear of flying etc.)
  • Weight control/weight loss (including gastric band hypnotherapy, treatment for 'food addiction', binge eating etc.)
  • Low self confidence (sometimes called low self-esteem)
  • Relationship issues
  • Stress and the immune system disturbance, sometimes called psycho-neuro immunology (PNI)
  • Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Anger management
  • Insomnia and sleep disorders
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), (adhering to the latest NHS guidelines for this hypnotherapy treatment, now accepted by the National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE).
  • Addictions obsessions and compulsive behaviour (including gambling addictions, alcohol abuse, drug abuse, internet addiction)
  • Smoking cessation (quit smoking)
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)
  • Performance management (including sports performance, public speaking, exam nerves)
  • Childbirth and pregnancy
  • Pain management
  • Hypnotherapy for cancer patients
  • Hypnotherapy for sexual problems (including sex addiction and sexual dysfunction)
  • Blushing
  • Bruxism (grinding of teeth)
  • Tinnitus

To maintain my therapeutic skills at the cutting edge of modern theory and good practice I keep abreast of the latest published and ongoing research in my field. I also regularly attend continuous professional development courses, master classes and national seminars relating to my core subjects of treatment.

If you have any queries about clinical hypnotherapy, how it works and how it can help you, by all means give me a call or email me, and I will be happy to discuss your case without obligation.

Areas of hypnotherapy I deal with


* If you have been diagnosed or suspect you may have one of the medical conditions starred above, you should consult your GP for advice, diagnosis and treatment and always inform your health professional before starting any alternative or additional therapies or treatments.

Fees

My standard charges and block booking fees.

Block booking fees are charged at £95 per session
(When a minimum of four sessions are booked in advance).

For single sessions I charge £105.
(Each session usually lasts about 60 minutes to 75 minutes. An initial assessment may take up to 90 minutes with the fee remaining the same).

Specialist protocols such as smoking cessation, treatment for irritable bowel syndrome, (IBS) and weight control may be priced separately. This can be clarified at initial contact or case assessment.

Late cancellation of appointments:

In accordance with the booking practices of the clinic if a patient does not attend a pre-booked session, without 48 hours notice, half of the fee for that session is usually payable. If less than 24 hours notice is given of a cancellation the full session fee is normally charged.

You are reminded that your commitment to change should be matched, where possible, by your attendance of booked sessions. If you miss sessions,  the value of your treatment may be affected.
