I have been in successful practice for over ten years now with experience in helping people with stopping smoking, anxiety issues, weight loss, phobias, depression, low self-esteem, lack of confidence and many more unwanted conditions. My stop-smoking package is, in my experience, 95%-plus successful.
I have always enjoyed working with people and after many and varied jobs, aged 46, I studied homoeopathy at The London College of Classical Homoeopathy for about 18 months. I realised that although I was in the right area - helping people with health problems - that particular approach wasn't quite right for me.
I then saw an ad in a local paper for a course in hypnotherapy, psychotherapy and counselling held at Surrey University (although not one of their courses) and after an hour on the first day I realised that this was what I had been searching for.
I see my role as helping people to help themselves through hypnotherapy or counselling and contact their own inner hidden resources to achieve what they really want for themselves.

After an initial free half-hour consultation my fee is £40 per hour with a 50% discount for benefit or unemployment claimants. The stop-smoking package - a one-and-a-half-hour session with a free back-up session if starting again (very rarely needed) - is £150.
I attend a peer-group meeting with other professionals once a month where a free exchange of views and discussion of current topics are beneficial for all those involved.
My practice is well served by public transport (bus and rail) and parking is ample and free.
Usually 9 AM to 8 PM Mon to Sat with possible Subday.
