I trained with the internationally renowned celebrity hypnotherapist Marisa Peer (whose client list includes international superstars, CEO’s, royalty and Olympic athletes) I am one of a select few therapists worldwide who’ve been highly trained and licensed by Marisa to successfully deliver her unique and highly successful method Rapid Transformational Therapy which has been described as ‘life-changing’. I am also an RTT Trainer and qualified 'One of Many' coach.
I enable clients to free themselves from the issues that are holding them back and preventing them from living life to their full potential.
Before I trained as a hypnotherapist I was very successful observational documentary filmmaker. I spent my days filming people who were in pain for many different reasons – some physical and others mental. At the end of each day, my heart ached but I thought I was helpless to do anything. When I met my husband and started trying for a family I suddenly had to face a challenge of my own – I just couldn’t get pregnant. It was then that I discovered hypnotherapy. The positive suggestions I received turned my mindset around and enabled me to become the mother I’d always dreamt of becoming.
After my daughter was born I retrained with Marisa Peer as an RTT Therapist and Hypnotherapist, with 'One of Many' as a coach and with John Dewar in the techniques of EMDR. I’ve been using these tool to enable clients to turn round their lives ever since.
I specialise in fertility, confidence, self-esteem, fulfilment and work/life balance

Hi Andrea, I’ve been meaning to get in touch to let you know that I got the job! The interview went really well and I really feel the sessions have made a massive difference and I honestly can’t thank you enough. I felt calm on the day and actually quite enjoyed the interview itself, something that I never thought I would ever say! My hands were steady! ???? So, thank you so much - I feel like a changed woman!

I had heard about hypnotherapy from friends and have always been curious as to whether it would work for me or not.
I have struggled greatly with my relationship with food since I was an early teen and at the age of 34 I wanted to finally get control over it once and for all.
I contacted Andrea to see if she could help me.
Andrea sent me some questionnaires to fill out in order to give her an overview of my relationship with food and my personal thoughts.
The moment Andrea arrived at my house I felt immediately at ease. It turns out I'm very susceptible to hypnotherapy! I was amazed at how certain trigger words have stayed with me since. One of the main issues I wanted to conquer was sweets! I am a very emotional eater and being a first time Mum to a toddler I am always tired! Sweets are often the first thing I grab for a quick burst of energy. Unfortunately, I never stopped at a few! After speaking with me, Andrea clearly picked up on what trigger words would work for me and I'm surprised and so pleased to say they still work! I have not eaten sweets since November, so approaching 4 months now!!
I truly cannot recommend Andrea enough!!! She has helped me so much! Thank you x

To say I was sceptical is an understatement! Now I am a complete convert. Andrea is calm and reassuring and oh so helpful. She helped me to see what needed to change and that I have the power within myself to make those changes. There were things in my life, as in most peoples, that needed dealing with and that can be scary on your own. Andrea has helped me realise I can do anything, deal with anything and have a very positive future. Thank you, Andrea, for starting me on my new hope-filled loving journey.

There is absolutely nothing scary about hypnotherapy. I was made to feel relaxed, comfortable and when the session had finished I honestly felt like a heavy weight had been lifted off my shoulders. I've got a spring in my step, a new way of thinking and I cannot wait to see how I change as a person as a result of the session. Andrea made me realise that the mind is a powerful thing and a hypnotherapy session is a perfect way to make positive changes and get rid of mental blocks holding you back from achieving your life goal.

I have ridden horses more or less all of my life but found suddenly I was lacking confidence and felt like i was losing my nerve. I have never tried hypnotherapy in the past so I wasn't sure what to expect but decided I would try it.
From the start, Andrea was warm, friendly and professional and immediately put me at ease. She answered all of my questions and helped me to understand why and how hypnotherapy works. The session itself was very revealing to me personally and afterwards, I felt calm and relaxed. I also slept more soundly than I have in a long time! It's definitely vital to listen to the recording Andrea gives you to use at home afterwards.
Andrea's aftercare and follow up was also considered and caring and I felt I could ask for any additional advice if I needed to.
For me personally, I have felt a big shift in my level of confidence, not only in riding but overall. It's quite hard to pinpoint but I can only say I have a new feeling of inner confidence and calm about myself and what I can achieve. It seems to have crept up on me but I know I wouldn't have come to this turning point without Andrea's help. For that, I am extremely grateful and impressed.
I would highly recommend seeking Andrea's help for anything you are struggling with and would certainly go back to her again if I felt I had other areas in my life that I was finding difficult.

Working with Andrea was such a positive and valuable experience. I had two hypnotherapy sessions with her via a video conference, which were so empowering and even cathartic. One was for helping me to manage my stress caused by my fertility struggle and the other one aimed at helping me to combat my underlying urge for perfectionism and improve my lack of confidence. I had never thought I could be hypnotised, but Andrea provided such a safe and trusting environment that I was able to allow myself to let go of control and go easily with her suggestions. After the sessions I had to listen to the personalised recordings which Andrea made especially for me. Even though I mostly fell asleep after listening to them for a few minutes, the hypnotherapy recordings still had a significant effect on me by affecting my subconscious mind. I have been feeling so much more positive about my fertility journey, as I let go of a lot of my fears and anxieties. I have just started listening to the second recording, but I am confident that it will do me as good as the other recording did. Andrea was very empathetic, kind, caring and compassionate. I cannot recommend her enough.
Isabel – London
My husband and I have been trying to conceive for the past 2.5 years. When we started trying for a child there was joy and excitement but then after a year with no positive pregnancy test, we decided to ask our doctor if she could help. I am sceptical of medications so I don’t jump to doctors without serious consideration. At my first appointment, she diagnosed me with PCOS. All my hormone levels were perfectly normal but my ovaries had cysts. This sent me into a continual downward spiral of depression and hopelessness.
I came across Andrea who was willing to coach me and have me try hypnosis. I was sceptical but willing to try it. After the first session, I felt energized. I was ready to conquer the world. Fast forward to a month later and nearly 30 days of focusing on myself and there is a completely new woman in me. A woman full of strength, hope, determination, and most importantly, love for herself.
The version of myself 30 days ago, compared to who I am today are complete opposites. I didn’t have to turn to medication to learn how to be happy and full of hope. Andrea walked me through each day to see the light. The light that is within myself and all around me, and for that, I am forever grateful.
