I am a Hypnobirthing teacher, a mother of two daughters and a grandmother. I studied with KG Hypnobirthing and hold a diploma which is accredited by the Royal College of Midwives. I offer Hypnobirthing classes for individuals, couples or groups.
I offer.treatment for a wide range of issues including smoking cessation, weight reduction, fears and phobias, cravings and addictions, physical conditions such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome, skin conditions, migraines, anxiety and stress, panic attacks, pain management, infertility, insomnia and lack of confidence.
Hypnotherapy is a form of complementary therapy that uses the power of positive suggestion to facilitate unconscious change to our problematic thoughts, feelings and behaviour. As a clinical hypnotherapist, I use a variety of techniques, including hypnosis and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) to relax the conscious mind, and at the same time stimulate and focus the unconscious mind in order to allow helpful suggestions to be made.
Whatever problem you come to see me with, I will put you at your ease and provide you with an individualised therapy plan for you, based on your own needs.
My practice is located at my home in Upper Poppleton, a village located approximately 4 miles outside York, just off the A59, within minutes of the York ring road. There is easy, free on-street parking. I am also a 5-minute walk from the Poppleton Bar Park & Ride and a 2-minute walk from Poppleton railway station. I offer daytime or evening sessions by appointment.
If you would like to discuss things with me before booking a session, you may like to come for a free 30-minute initial consultation. This would give you the chance to ask any questions you may have and to discover how hypnotherapy could help you.
If you are ready to make positive changes in your life, please get in touch. I would love to hear from you.
