I have developed a client centred approach over the years based upon my varied training and background. I have a professional nursing qualification SRN/ RGN, and many years in the pharmaceutical industry as a coach, trainer and regional manager, and over 11 years as a fully qualified clinical hypnotherapist, and have won several national awards for client management in hypnotherapy. I have several professional qualifications including the Advanced Cognitive Behavioural Clinical Hypnotherapy Diploma, NLP, EFT, TFT, Inner Child, Advance Coaching, Weight and Gastro Band Hypnotherapy, Conversational Decoding, teaching and a Diploma in Mindfulness. Also I am a registered supervisor of hypnotherapists and business mentor. I have experience training in the corporate world in motivation and wellbeing, including stress recognition and prevention for management teams. I see clients from all types of backgrounds, but I am particularly interested in stress of all types, phobias, confidence issues, public speaking, assertiveness and Weight Management and have seen thousands of clients with weight, stress, and other problems. The service is completely confidential and private. Most of my clients leave a consultation or training session saying that they feel 'uplifted', and happier and found the sessions of great personal benefit. Hypnotherapy does not work for everybody, but most people even those 'resistant' according to recent studies can by hypnotised with training. I do provide Mp3's on my website, but these do not always suit clients, I prefer to tailor individual therapy to each client as I believe that every client is unique, although generic recordings can be helpful,

Everybody is unique and service is designed to suit the client. I try to use evidence based practices but love the way I can offer a creative service tailored to my clients individual needs.
I can give talks or workshops for organisations, subject to time and availability, on stress management, Relationships at work, change management, weight, confidence, Interview preparation etc.
Fees vary depending upon whether individual work or corporate, and subject to a person's individual circumstances. On going coaching and relaxation as little as £45 a session, initial sessions £75 or £120 for double session, and Gastro Band £100 per session. Training costs by arrangement. Number of sessions required can vary from just one with long term on going support for some of my clients, for example I see disabled clients, clients with pain, locked in syndrome, M.S, alcohol problems, visually impaired, etc etc, including home visits of course for the disabled. Smoking cessation usually only one visit is required. I believe it is impossible to compare costs as the measure of the outcome is, success or no success.
Corporate work includes, Training in Stress management for organisations and staff support. Coaching and motivational measures. Workshops about conflict at work and developing confidence, Motivation, Sales techniqurd, Help with presentations, public speaking, Exhibition Coaching,
I have many years experience as a trainer, coach, more than ten years experience helping people through the trauma of divorce, separation and bereavement as social secretary in my spare time. Also have worked with work related stress, and understand this from both the employee point of view and the preventative and legal aspects for employers. I have seen hundreds of people with weight problems and continue to receive many private referrals as a result. Group talks on self hypnosis can be arranged with a free therapy session for the organisor. Call me to discuss your requirements.
I am passionate about Weight, Stress and General Well-being.
