As a professional Cognitive Hypnotherapist, Acupuncturist and Coach, I am able to help with a wide range of body-mind issues and enable people to live a positive more fulfilled life. I've been working one-to-one for over fifteen years and recently published a book - Smiling The Moon - with Hay House the world's leading personal growth publishers.
Cognitive Hypnotherapy works by changing the root of your problem and is designed to get life-long results in just a few sessions. I will give you a tailor-made CD or Mp3 audio file to listen to that is completely unique to you and this, along with techniques used in our sessions together, enables you to change your problem at a rapid and safe rate for you.

What can Cognitive Hypnotherapy (Cog Hyp) help with? If you are motivated to change your life, I've found over the years that Cog Hyp can help with a wide variety of issues - from anxiety to negative emotions, phobias to depression, addictions to stress. I also work with post trauma stress resolution, weight loss and sports performance. And also less defined aspects of life such as ‘life purpose’ and motivation. Please feel free to contact me to find out more about how I can help you, call 07887 682291.
How does it work? Underpinning any habit or aspect of your psychonomy that you’d like to change, are patterns of thinking that are beneath your conscious rational mind. It is in this subconscious where your mind’s ‘programming’ takes place and from where your behaviour manifests. Cognitive Hypnotherapy works in this area of mind to change negative or unhelpful behaviours into positive or neutral ways of being, to bring you the life you want.
A bit about me. For years I’ve been successfully helping people get the most out their lives and overcoming problems that they once thought permanent. And having studied oriental medicine, I have an eastern clinical background that provides an interesting philosophical foundation to build on my ‘western’ psychotherapeutic training and understanding. I have a very simple and down to earth approach which enables me to work successfully with all kinds of problems.
I began my career in London and moved to Edinburgh relatively recently, and I'm very happy to work on Skype. I trained with Trevor Silvester, the founder of Cognitive Hypnotherapy at the Quest Institute, Regent’s College in London. The Quest training is extensive and includes leading-edge trauma resolution techniques such as EMI (Eye Movement Integration), EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), and Project You coaching.
