About me

I have been practising hypnotherapy for over 20 years, fully qualified, a member of the National Council for Hypnotherapy, and a member of the General Hypnotherapy Register with a senior qualification. My main approach is hypnotherapy, I also use counselling psychotherapy and NLP techniques.

Hypnotherapy is an incredibly effective and versatile way of dealing with a wide range of issues and ailments, from anxiety and depression to stress and phobias. I have been working for all types of addictions including smoking, and have successfully treated them with hypnotherapy and it can also be used for weight control, offering lifelong health and well-being benefits to the people in Plymouth. I also work with the many problems that children face and I enjoys a great report with children 10+.

Hypnotherapy for anxiety is a very common request in my clinic in Plymouth, Devon. Prolonged anxiety can disrupt work, relationships sleep and your general happiness.  There are many different types - anxiety and panic attacks, fears and phobias, negative thoughts, generalised anxiety, dentists, social anxiety, leaving home and many more. By using hypnotherapy we can help you bring these beliefs more in line with your conscious thinking and in doing so make the beliefs more appropriate for you and the way you want to be, living life to the full again, and freeing you from the debilitating effects of anxiety once and for all.

I also offer specialised courses:

  • for the NEW Hypno-Band weight loss system
  • normal weight loss
  • natural and Hypno-Birthing for mums to be
  • I.B.S. (irritable bowel)
  • anxiety and panic attacks
  • and of course one session stop smoking (if I do not succeed you will have a second session for half price).

At the Clinic of Hypnosis & Stress Management, I will help you work towards your goals in a safe and comfortable environment.

One of my primary aims in a hypnotherapy session is to help you understand the problem, and feel relaxed and comfortable as you work towards your goal.

I offer services to Clients in and around Plymouth, Devon and Cornwall.

I feel so positive about it that I seem to tell everyone I meet about it .... thank you". ABBY

"I would like to thank you for the superb service I have received from you and congratulate you on the amazing life changing results we have achieved...

Your caring professionalism and expertise have simply transformed my life and for that I will be eternally grateful" J.
