As a very experienced hypnotherapist my passion is to help you change your life in whatever way is appropriate for you. I love the work that I do - from helping clients to gain confidence, improve their natural fertility, fight anxiety and lose weight to stop smoking and getting rid of phobias.
The most common issues I work with are helping people to stop smoking, lose weight and to gain confidence and self-esteem. I often help people to tackle fears and phobias - for example worries about flying, taking a driving test, visiting the dentist and so on.
Many clients come for help with sleep problems, stress and depression and I can offer help in all of these areas of concern.
Working with people suffering infertility is a specialism that I also enjoy but it is the wide variety of the work that appeals to me most - from the little girl who conquered her fear of buttons in just one session to the pensioner who overcame his dread of crossing bridges.
I have helped mums-to-be who were terrified of giving birth, solicitors who were handicapped by blushing, a soldier who had no problems facing the Taliban but couldn't stand up in front of a room full of fellow officers and many more.

Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with
I am a registered Fertile Body Method practitioner and work on fertility issues with clients of both sexes. This includes treatment related to sexual performance and impotence as well as working alongside IVF and other conventional medical interventions. My partner Barbara Scott of Seren Natural Fertility is one of the world's leading experts on the treatment of infertility using natural therapies and is the Chairwoman of the Association of Reproductive Reflexologists, the ARR.
In enjoy working with children aged between 7 and 16. For parents' peace of mind I am CRB checked and either work with a responsible adult in the room or close by depending on the age and confidence levels of the youngster undergoing treatment. Parents are always consulted at every stage of treatment. The process is explained and a consent form is signed before treatment begins. In my experience children respond well to hypnotherapy and in most cases need only one or two sessions to achieve the changes they want.
I particularly enjoy helping smokers to kick the habit and specialise in this area. As a former heavy smoker myself I know just how difficult it can be to quit by using will-power alone. Hypnotherapy really can help make the difference for the cost of just two to three-days worth of tobacco for most smokers.
A free initial consultation is available to help you decide if hypnotherapy is the right treatment for you.
I work very closely with my wife Barbara Scott, acknowledged as Europe's leading expert on the use of reflexology to treat infertility, in helping couples experiencing problems with their fertility. Our website www.serennaturalfertility.co.uk gives more details.
