About me

I founded Merryfield Hypnotherapy in March 2014 and gained my Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma in December 2014.

In February 2015 I suffered a Stroke, causing me to put the business on hold whilst I underwent recovery. The next 18 months became a steep learning curve on the condition, dealing with the frustrations of my limitations and finding solutions to my situation. Combined with the death of my father in the same year to Motor Neurone disease and the decline of my mother with Dementia following a stroke 12 months later I have learnt a lot about the emotional issues that come with these horrible diseases as well as the mental and physical demands expected of the person affected and the carers who provide the help and support.

I view my experience as an opportunity to help others who are also going through difficult times with their mental health and you can be assured of my complete support should you come to me for help in coping with any mental health condition.
