About me

Hello, I am an experienced, fully registered professional hypnotherapist providing Hypnosis and advanced NLP techniques that can help you improve your life. If now is the time for you to make a positive difference, I am here to help. Issues successfully treated include: weight release, weight management and virtual gastric banding, addictions, stopping smoking, alcohol abuse, drug addiction, phobias, fear of spiders, fear of flying, PTSD, depression, anxiety issues, low self-esteem, confidence issues, panic attacks, insomnia, stress management or any other emotional or psychological problems.

About Therapy

As a clinical hypnotherapist my primary goal is to enable people to make helpful, lasting changes to unconscious thought patterns - out of reach from conscious awareness - resulting in beneficial changes to your habits, behaviours, feelings and thoughts.

I treat each person with the utmost respect and always structure my approach to your specific, personal needs and not the symptom or presenting problem.

Clinical hypnotherapy is a flexible therapy that integrates a mix of modern therapeutic approaches such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), and Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), to help you work through issues and make helpful changes.

Weight Loss and Healthy Eating

  • Comfort Eating - Emotional Responses (loneliness, sadness, depression, hurt, pain, boredom). Hypnosis and NLP can help change how you respond to emotional triggers, meaning you can choose to do things that help you lose weight or maintain a healthy weight.
  • Stress (work, lack of time, relationships, kids, money, health). You learn great strategies for how to deal with the stress so you won't need treats, snacks or binge food for comfort.
  • Eating Disorders, Binge Eating using food for control, comfort, punishment, or as part of an emotional process. Anorexia, Bulemia.
  • Food addiction (sweet sugary treats and fatty foods). If you are struggling to control your desire for a high calorie food or drink we can change how you feel about that food to become something you can easily conrol or even reject.
  • Exercise and fitness. We have ways to give you extra motivation and desire to enjoy working muscles and burning calories.
  • Self Image. With support and hypnosis exercises you learn to "like" and appreciate  yourself more, to see yourself in a better light, and this can allow you to take better care and eat more healthily and keep the weight off in future.

I offer people who want to release weight a safe, private space to help unpack any emotional blocks or issues that may be stopping them from losing weight.

It may be that food became a therapy in itself, a self-soothing response to stress that is now adding to the stress because it's out of control.

There are a number of things we can do that can help you to change the eating response to stress - or other emotions - and to create a new response that can become better for body and mind.

If you are interested in forming a different relationship with food and creating a new way of eating without dieting I provide a simple, flexible, common sense approach and support that works to help you release weight and most importantly, to change unhelpful thoughts.

You can pay on a session by session basis (£70) or choose the treatment plan £180 covering three sessions (5 hours of therapy) and all materials and support.

Hypno-Band - Virtual Gastric Band Hypnotherapy Treatment
I am a licensed Hypno-Band Gastric weight-Loss practitioner for Manchester. This allows me to use a proven and comprehensive Virtual Gastric Banding method producing impressive weight loss results for people who would like the supportive feeling more full from small portions of food.

The Hypno-Band process is a powerful weight management tool to help people from eating too much because, as with a physical gastric band, there is the experience of feeling full even when you only eat a small portion.

This process also covers emotional eating, addictive foods, and body confidence issues.

We are careful to take time on the important issues so that when it is time to have the gastric band fitted you are ready for all of the lifestyle changes that are important to maintain a healthy weight

This four session treatment comes with two Virtual Gastric Banding CD's and an information pack containing everything you need to lose weight safely.

To ensure you are doing well you can receive a personalised healthy eating approach and daily support for the first three weeks.

This comprehensive weight control treatment is priced at £240.

Hypnosis and NLP treatments can help you, or a loved one, to break free from the cycle of addiction. Including many different types of addiction, from drug and chemical addictions such as alcohol abuse, drug addiction (cocaine, cannabis addiction), quitting smoking, to other addictions such as compulsive gambling addiction, porn addiction, sex addiction, internet addiction, shopping addiction etc.

Smoking Cessation
Most people would agree that there is never a bad time to stop smoking, however the truth is it can feel like the worst of times when you try to quit smoking and you're not ready.

If you are struggling to stop by yourself I can help you to get past the problem using an approach that has worked for even the most hard-core smokers.

Booking your Stop smoking Hypnotherapy session lasting up to 2 hours is your first step to becoming smoke free.

During the session we focus on your individual smoking habit to ensure you gain complete control over any thoughts or triggers that are causing you problems.

I will show you how to change your perception of smoking and how to more easily overcome the psychological dependency - the love story -  that so many smokers struggle to beat.

At the end of the session you are given a powerful hypnosis CD containing more support for you to take home.

My Quit Smoking Guarantee - If you require more support following the first session you can book another smoking cessation session for free - this offer is open with no time limits.

Cannabis Cessation . The therapy approach that is successful for cannabis cessation is a combination of hypnosis and NLP techniques that help change any psychological reliance on cannabis as a way to relax or cope and to remove any fear of what life will be like in the future without the drug. Cannabis addiction is often a more complex issue than smoking tobacco (although nicotine addiction is part of the issue) and that means successful treatment may take longer - on average between 3 to 6 sessions.

Alcohol Addiction

Hypnotherapy approaches can help people think differently about alcohol and find resources that enable you to feel stronger and more determined to make better choices.

Alcohol Addiction Hypnotherapy Treatment

The initial treatment plan starts at £80 and each following session is priced at £60.

Stress, Anxiety, Panic Disorders

Whether you need help for a unique situation like exam nerves or a test, or more persistent deep-rooted problems linked to identity and beliefs, hypnotherapy will work to help you regain a healthy balance.


Each person is treated in a way that is personal to them and their model of their world and that means there is often something that can be found within each client that can lead to improvements.

We work together at your pace and speed to allow a gentle progression towards any change that is agreeable.


If you or someone you know suffers with a simple phobia please be aware that you do not need to live in fear with your phobic problem any longer because the hypnotherapy and NLP techniques that can rapidly help you remove the phobic problem altogether.

  • Fear of Flying
  • Fear of dogs
  • Fear of spiders/insects
  • Fear of lifts/small spaces
  • Fear of public speaking
  • Fear of eating in public
  • Fear of thunderstorms

Although each person is unique many phobia issues can be improved within five or less sessions.
