About me

If you are looking for a hypnotherapist (Award winning!) that can help you address the symptoms, causes and impact of Anxiety, Stress, Chronic pain  and illness - including Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Parkinson's Disease, M.S. Endometriosis, back injuries and other painful conditions then please read on or contact me to talk further.

Having spent over a decade working as a Hypnotherapist, Coach, Counsellor, IEMT practitioner and Mindfulness teacher and more recently the Director of the Healthful Mind Clinic in Wimborne Dorset, (voted Hypnotherapy Practice of the Year 2021 in the Southern Enterprise Awards!) I have a considerable amount of knowledge and experience of helping people over come their emotional health barriers, and improve their physical health through mind based therapies.

I recently opened the clinic after a year working solely online made me realise how much people needed to be able to be part of a positive community, that not just offered them solutions to problems but would provide a space where they could increase the health and happiness they already had and receive ongoing classes and support to maintain their wellbeing.

My specialist area lies in using hypnotherapy alongside other coaching and mind-based techniques to address the many aspects of chronic pain, chronic illness, anxiety, stress and emotional trauma and the effects it can have on a persons body and life, and on those around them. It was these methods that 12 years ago gave me back my life from decades of anxiety, pain and illness.

I am passionate about learning about the many ways we can influence and therefore take back control of our emotional and physical health.

My aim to empower others to understand how work with their bodies and minds own processes so they can be the best of themselves, whatever health challenges they have. 

This is why one of the first things we do when working together is to teach you how to harness your solution state, as this is having a healthful mind, one that thinks how you want to think, feel how you want to feel and enables you to feel confident enough to do the things you want to do. 

Having tried everything myself I understand how hard it can be to put your trust in yet another promised solution. This is why I offer a free introductory consultation and why you can view a number of videos and masterclasses on this site, so you have a real understanding of whether working together is right for you.

I work with clients individually online or in clinic as well as running group programmes and classes including a 4 week intensive pain management programme and IBS relief courses. All our work together is supported by downloadable recordings.

The clinic offers a variety of other services that can support you on your healing journey so feel free to take a look before booking your introductory consultation.

Hypnotherapists may become members of the General Hypnotherapy Register if they satisfy certain criteria with regard to both training and ongoing requirements as determined from time to time by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC).

Members are either registered at Practitioner status (which confirms that the GHR acknowledges their qualification to practice), or Affiliate status. Although Affiliate level registrants will have completed a sufficient number of training hours to equip them to commence seeing clients on a limited basis, the GHR does not acknowledge them to have yet been trained to full practitioner level.

All GHR Registered Practitioners are required to accept the published Code of Ethics and Complaints & Disciplinary Procedure.

Areas of hypnotherapy I deal with

Information about health conditions (*)

Hypnotherapy can enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice. If you have been diagnosed with - or suspect you may have - any of these conditions, please speak to your doctor before starting hypnotherapy.

Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with

As an IEMT (integral eye movement technique) practitioner,  Mindfulness teacher, coach and counsellor, working with me will give you the ability to not just resolve your issues but skills that will support you for any future challenges that life brings.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a hypnotherapist's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the hypnotherapist to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

The clinic is open on an appointment only basis but we have a virtual reception team that can deal with your enquiry and pass you on to the appropriate therapist for you.
