About me

I'm a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist practicing in both Bristol and Taunton.

I help people with problems arising from Anxiety, fear, anger and depression. I can help you to understand the stresses of your life from a different angle, and gain some clarity around your struggles.  With new perspectives come opportunities to be less reactive and more responsive.

Working together in therapy we'll find strategies to leave behind problems of the past and focus on growing into the real you.

Our work will include understanding your brain and thought patterns more clearly, examining what your better life looks like, and using the power of Hypnosis to create positive change.


I have worked in senior roles in the corporate world and as a creative in the music industry. I have a passion for writing and so have always been extremely interested in the creative process. As such I have always been active in following the latest research into the workings of the mind.

I have been practicing mindfulness, and other meditation techniques, for several years and I enjoy bringing these ideas and beneficial practices into the therapy room. I volunteer with a charity, the Mindful Life, that offers mindfulness training for Carers.

I have first hand experience of neurodiversity and caring, being a father to two wonderful children with ASC and ADHD.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am fortunate to have been trained by David Newton of Clifton Practice Hypnotherapy Training, a recognised Centre of Excellence for Hypnotherapy which was awarded Gold Standard in 2006. It was here that I gained my Diploma in Solution Focussed Hypnotherapy (DSFH) in 2015.

I am also a trained mindfulness practitioner.

I have extended CRB check status to enable me to work with children and teenagers.

I continue to study, attend lectures and regular supervision to keep up-to-date of any advancements in the field.
