About me


Have you heard about hypnotherapy and been curious about it but never given it a try?  Then hesitate no more because I offer a friendly, relaxed and professional service that will alleviate any fears or misconceptions you have and help you with whatever it is you want to change in your life for now and the future.  Based from clinics in Wishaw and Hamilton, I offer Hypnotherapy to make positive change, Havening for trauma and freeing yourself from the past and Reiki for stress-busting and relaxation.

I can help in a number of different areas which include: Stop Smoking, Anxiety/ Stress Management, Overcoming Phobias, Weight Loss, Virtual Gastric Band, Sports Performance, IBS and Chronic Pain Elimination - to name a few!  I am very passionate about what I do and enjoy making a real positive difference in peoples' lives and equipping them with the necessary tools to continue to enjoy the changes when they return to their everyday lives.

I also work with children and have found hypnosis to be a highly effective modality for young minds and can help with a variety of issues such as: sleep problems, anxiety, bullying and self-esteem.

Please contact me for a free consultation and I can give you further information and have an informal chat.  Skype sessions are also available on request.

Further information


"Andi is amazing. My 10yr old daughter suffered badly with sleep anxiety for over 3 years. She had went to CAMHS team but it didn’t help. My daughter is like a changed wee girl she said she felt like a weight has lifted from her and is smiling all the time. I wish I had brought her to Andi at the start of her issues. Would recommend Andi to anyone feeling stressed or anxious."

"I made an appointment to see Andi after reading her excellent reviews. I had a long-standing issue around food, dating back to my teenage years. I was replacing most of my meals with packets of crisps, sometimes up to 5 bags a day. I was quite ashamed about this, however Andi was so understanding, non-judgemental and keen to help. She made me feel at ease instantly. After my first session, my whole thought process around food changed entirely. I haven't ate a single bag of crisps since and have been craving healthy and nutritious foods. There are no urges and I feel like a healthier and happier me! I have so much more energy and see lots of changes in my moods too. Wish I'd done it a long time ago. Would absolutely recommend to anyone."

"Andi was recommended to me by a friend and I'm so glad she was!! She has been brilliant with me from the minute I met her and then chatted on the phone to discuss ways she could help me. I suffer from anxiety and depression and have tried endless therapies and techniques up until now to try and help me live with it. When I went to Andi initially I felt like completely giving up and had lost faith in everything. Havening and hypnotherapy with Andi though has been a game changer. I am feeling probably the best I have felt in a very long time. I have a much more positive outlook now and have really started to accept myself and start to live in the here and now, something I could never get to grips with before. Learning to haven myself has taught me a skill that I can really keep going as I move forward in life now, which I'm so appreciative of. Andi is so warm, friendly and welcoming. She's so easy to chat to and open up to and I know I can turn to her anytime for help and advice. Honestly can't recommend her enough!! Thank you so much!!

"I had recent hypnosis sessions with Andi and found the whole process very positive. I lost weight and changed lifestyle eating habits and benefit hugely from this which I have never managed to achieve before. Andi puts you at ease and achieves results, would highly recommend."

"Love what Andi has taught me. Been through a particularly tough 18 months which left me at rock bottom but after working with Andi I feel equipped to take on the world again."

"I was very sceptical about trying hypnotherapy for my chocolate addiction. As it turns out it was one of the best decisions I ever made.  I haven't eaten any chocolate for 4 weeks and feel a lot more positive in my outlook."

"Andi helped me to self-hypnotize and relax during flights. I am especially terrified of take-off and landing. The last 2 flights I have been on... I didn't even know when the plane had landed as I was so relaxed and in my own space. Amazing, thanks Andi!"

"What fantastic work you do I could not believe the difference it made to me personally.  Hypnosis also worked wonders for my son who was so frightened to go to bed on his own or even go up into his room. He now has no trouble going upstairs on his own or going to sleep and has had no more nightmares. Big thanks to you."
