About me

I am a professional Clinical Hypnotherapist & Senior Accredited Counsellor with over 15 years of experience working in the healthcare sector. I am also a clinical supervisor working with counsellors, students and specialist nurses.

My core values are compassion, ethical and professional practice and a real desire to help people reach their potential.

Many of the people who come to me for help struggle with personal worries and concerns that stop them from living happy & fulfilled lives. Anxiety and depression are common problems and can massively affect self-confidence and self-esteem, which in turn affects relationships, work and happiness. Fears and phobias can be crippling and impact on health.

I am trained in several approaches -

Hypnotherapy - helps with a wide range of issues - weight loss, giving up smoking, anxiety, stress, trauma, pain, fears & phobias e.g dentists, flying, exam nerves and public speaking. (fees for hypnotherapy are from £60).

  • Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) - helps with reframing old patterns of thinking and behaviour, it's particularly helpful for trauma, confidence and fears.
  • CBT - this approach looks at how your thoughts affect your feeling and how this then affects your behaviour. (This approach is recommended by NICE guidelines for depression).
  • Person Centred - this therapy help you to get in touch with your feelings and can be powerful in helping with self-development and understanding yourself; working through your issues.
  • our first session will be an assessment and together we will agree a personally tailored plan, perhaps using a combination of interventions. Effective therapy usually takes several sessions and the willingness for you to engage.
  • Therapy is confidential unless there is a safeguarding concern.
  • Parking is off road and totally private.
