About me

I believe anyone can make a difference in their own lives and achieve any change they want for themselves. I am committed to helping people improve their wellbeing and achieve the goals that have eluded them in the past.

I like to work in a solution-focused way in order to facilitate the changes you want in your life.

The mind-body link and holistic approach is well evidenced and researched. As a wellbeing practitioner, I steer away from the ‘one-size-fits-all therapy’ and instead, prefer to work by integrating different therapeutic approaches to create a personalised treatment plan that helps you to achieve your goals and find your way to wellbeing.

I draw predominantly upon counselling techniques, hypnotherapy, NLP and psychotherapeutic approaches, one of these being Brain Working Recursive Therapy (BWRT).

I can help you overcome many issues but my areas of specialism are:

  • Anxiety/stress/depression
  • Fears and phobias
  • Lack of confidence and low self-esteem
  • Weight reduction
  • Habits

Training, qualifications & experience

  • BA (Hons) Applied Social Studies & CQSW
  • Diploma in Hypnotherapy
  • Licensed NLP Practitioner
  • RSA Certified Counselling Skills and Theory
  • BWRT practitioner -Level 1
  • Ongoing Continued Professional Development in therapeutic approaches

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.

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.
