Many of life's demands such as work, money, relationships can cause stress. And when you feel stressed, it can get in the way of sorting out these demands, or they can quite simply seem to effect everything you do.
We also create our own health, not just by what we eat or how often we exercise, but also by how we think and respond to everyday situations.
With the help of hypnotherapy, NLP techniques, EFT and simple life coaching I can help you become better equipped at handling stress, anxiety, self limiting beliefs or fears and phobias that can be holding you back from living life to the full.
We all go into trance regularly and naturally, when engrossed in a book, driving a familiar route or daydreaming, in fact we are in a trance most of the day!
With Solution Focused Hypnotherapy I use the latest neuroscience research and practical strategies to help people make significant, positive changes in their lives in a relatively short period of time.
Together we will look at where you are now, focus on what you would like to be doing and help you to move forward.
What I love about what I do, is seeing people come along looking dubious and unsure but with an issue that needs resolving, and leaving lighter, brighter and totally changed, with renewed energy and positivity. To be able to change someone’s view of his or her world is a fantastic feeling.

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.
