I am a fully qualified Hypnotherapist and member of the Hypnotherapy Society, using both Suggestive Hypnotherapy and Hypnoanalysis. I work from home in my private practise, working full time from an allocated room. My clients feel safe and at ease and are given complete confidentiality at all times, with no disturbance.
I specialise in:
- sexual/physical abuse
- weight loss
- quitting smoking
- drug and alcohol abuse
- and much more.
My aim will be to assist you, to overcome whatever your issue may be.
Stress and Anxiety play a major role in our lives, bringing negative thoughts, which then effect us greatly. Hypnotherapy changes the negative thought process, so you are then able to live more freely, with nothing holding you back.
You may want to lose weight and feel the person you used to be, but need help to accomplish your goal and gaining control of your eating habits.
You may be tired of trying other methods available on the market to help you to Quit Smoking.
Or you may be feeling, the time has come for you to overcome your addiction to alcohol or drugs, and want to release the hold and set yourself free from the control the substances have over you.
Whatever your issue may be, you will find me caring, supportive, emphatic, and non judgemental. I will help you reach your personal goals, that you search to achieve.
Here are a few testimonies that past clients have kindly wrote. I have retained client identity, as I believe in complete confidentiality.

How Hypnotherapy can help?
A therapeutic use of hypnosis, is an entirely natural state of relaxation of the mind and body. During the hypnotic state, I will guide you, using suggestions from the information you have given me concerning your issue, which assist in altering the psychological thought process connected to your issue.
Hypnotherapy is nothing like the stage shows. You will not reveal your secrets or become any farmyard animal. You will feel pleasantly relaxed and in full control of the process.
Hypnotherapy is a perfectly normal and safe alternative state of consciousness.
Some people are concerned about making a change to their life, but as this is the one thing humans fear most, it's very normal to feel this way. By making the changes, you allow your life to move forward.
Hypnotherapy will bring about that change you are searching for. The journey can be a very enjoyable one, and it is possible, you will wonder why you didn't take the step years ago.
