About me

Hello - it is great to help so many clients back on track with their lives so quickly,  with long-lasting results. We don’t focus on past issues – although I am not problem phobic -  I work with my clients collaboratively to ensure their emotional needs are met and to relieve the symptoms of stress and anxiety.

Using clinical hypnosis and psychotherapy I work with clients who are committed to change, It can help with many areas, including, body image, anxiety, disordered eating, ARFID (avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder) reducing stress, reducing pressure, acrophobia, mysophobia,  claustrophobia, Long Covid, IBS, menopause symptoms, ritualistic behaviour, helping with sleep disorders, depression, FND, chronic pain, smoking cessation.  It is fantastic for clients wanting to lose weight. I am also a trauma therapist dealing with PTSD, trained by Prof David Muss on the IARTT rewind. I work with CBTi for insomnia, I have an enhanced DBS certificate for my work with children, teens and vulnerable adults and am fully insured. My diversity training and clinical medical hypnotherapy Diploma, have all help me become a well-rounded practitioner.

Generally, clients feel more positive after the first session, a greater understanding of what is happening when our emotional and physical needs are out of balance – and what our brain does to compensate really helps the process.

If you feel you are struggling, feeling under pressure, overwhelmed, ‘a bit stuck’ or would like to make changes to become the best version of you then just give me a call to discuss.

These practical and science-based therapies help me treat stress, anxiety, depression, anger management, exam anxiety, sleep issues, confidence, OCD, low self-esteem, weight-loss, Covid anxiety, fears/phobias, addictions such as smoking and alcohol, my current clients’ range in age from 12-80 – so if you want change I can help.

Most clients experience positive results in a relatively short space of time. Ultimately it is down to the client to engage in the therapeutic process, demonstrate willingness to change and commit to regular appointments. Results cannot be guaranteed.

Please see below a few recent client testimonials on how effective this therapy is:

"Angela is an extremely supportive, non judgmental and caring person who I am so grateful to have had sessions with. Nine months ago I reached out to Angela again to help me cope with a recent loss of a good friend. I have never been so grateful to speak to her. Angela helped me cope through grief and understand what was going on. We then focused on my mood especially around anxiety and body image. Over the months Angela has given me a whole host of tools and a complete perspective change on how to view myself and the world around me. I now feel confident and happy in myself, and of course still have bad days but Angela has helped me understand those negative feelings and how I can work on them even when I am not seeing her. I could not recommend Angela enough – she has changed my life style and my mood day to day and am so thankful for it. I know I will use the resources she provided me with through out my whole lifetime.'  Sept 23

'I just want to say a huge huge thank you to you for looking after me in my time of need - I know that sounds dramatic but from the first time we met I knew you would be there for me.

Diagnosed with Chronic Insomnia is not an easy thing to digest & being left alone to cope with it was absolutely shattering for me .  I just didn’t know where to turn ..until someone I work with mentioned your name .

From that very first email I sent you , I knew from your reply you were going to do everything in your power to help me. Your positivity was just what I needed to drag me back up to somewhere I wanted to be.

We went through ups & downs together but you always believed I’d come back to me being me again.

Each session with you was incredible, you were my life line & I took in & did everything you told me however  tired & exhausted I was I listened … Now after 8 sessions with you  I am nearly back to my old self.

It will take a little while to recover from so many months without sleep but I now have the tools to help myself when I feel a bit wobbly & knowing you are at the other end of an email or a txt means the absolute world to me.

Thank you so much for being there for me.'  August 23

'I have done 6/7 weeks of sessions with Angela and she has helped me feel positive, motivated and back to my normal self. After hitting some personal problems with sleep, eating and relationships I felt like I fell down a rabbit hole and couldn’t see the light. 

I was a bit tentative with the hypnotherapy at first but the impact has been amazing. It provides the opportunity to take a step back from life and simply relax.

Angela has given me fantastic techniques that I can apply to many situations and aspects that may arise in my life. These techniques enable me to feel controlled and confident in my actions and let me take a step back to evaluate thoughts and situations without becoming anxious or overwhelmed. I would really recommend reaching out to Angela no matter how big or small your problem may seem because I know she will be able to be an incredible help! ' June 23

"I approached Angela to help me with my general anxiety which manifested itself as nausea and dizziness, making day-to-day life somewhat difficult and draining. 

Before I started working with her, I couldn’t imagine a time when I would be able to pop to the shops without feeling anxious about the prospect, let alone be able to confidently walk down the aisle at my wedding without feeling nauseous or dizzy. Only a few sessions in, I was able to walk into a crowded restaurant without panicking, do my entire weekly shop without feeling sick and even attend a medical appointment without getting lightheaded. 

I have been battling my personal form of anxiety for almost 20 years and never thought I would reach this point. I was even able to actually enjoy walking down the aisle at my recent wedding, as none of my usual anxiety symptoms even made an appearance - something which I would not have been able to achieve without Angela’s sessions!

If any of the above sounds familiar, I would highly recommend booking in some hypnotherapy sessions with her!"   May 2023

'My 12 year old son had a very limited diet, and not exactly healthy one. He was afraid of trying any unknown food for him for a long time. I was really worried about his poor diet and  none of the encouragement I offered to get him to try eat new textures would work. I was looking for some help with it, and I found Angela, after few appointments with her he started trying everything I gave him and now he makes his decision whether he likes it or not. He has since found few new tastes that he likes and that has encouraged him to keep trying. Angela is very knowledgeable and knows how to help different people in different situations. She is very focused, positive and encouraging in her therapy sessions and takes time to get to know you. '

'I turned to Angela after needing help to shift my negative thought patterns. Moving in and out of feelings of anxiety and low mood,  I felt there were past issues that needed to be dealt with and I was ready to try hypnotherapy.

Angela suggested using a particular technique called REWIND . After a couple of sessions I found my mood lifting. Generally I felt increasingly grounded , becoming more aware and grateful for simple pleasures.

Angela has useful tips to use on a daily basis to live  a happier and more positive life. I would really recommend anyone who  is struggling with a negative mindset / past trauma to contact Angela and discuss how the therapy could help you' Oct 22

'We returned from Lisbon on Wednesday and I'm delighted to tell you that your treatment worked! I had a few gulp moments on the morning of each flight but nothing unusual, really, and I replayed your words in my head and those feelings vanished. I am so relieved and can't thank you enough. ' October 2022

'Thank you so much Angela, after suffering multiple panic attacks each day, I managed the trip to Italy, including having the flight cancelled at Heathrow when we arrived and having to drive to Gatwick, and a week in horrendous heat - always a trigger - with NO panic attacks, I cannot thank you enough' Sept 2022

'You are a life saver. I passed everything, I could not have done anywhere near as good without your help and support. I have the skills to take me on to college, I am now no longer afraid - I am excited - I realise everyone will be feeling exactly the same as me - thank you!'  August 22

"I wouldn’t be where I am without Angela - she has saved me from a very dark and difficult place and I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone considering psychotherapy/hypnotherapy. I can honestly say she has changed my life and I feel more myself than ever before. Angela has an incredibly kind-hearted, non-judgemental and professional approach to her work and the results are fantastic. Everything about me has changed, from my outlook on life to even my posture! My confidence has returned and Angela has equipped me with the tools I need going forward. I learnt something new in every session and have benefitted greatly overall. I am so thankful to Angela and couldn’t recommend her more!"  June 22

"I had been experiencing quite bad anxiety, especially around work, for many years on and off. Having another bad episode that was really affecting my life, on the recommendation of a friend, I thought I would see if Angela and hypnotherapy could help.  It absolutely has.  I am far less anxious and stressed and feel much more grounded, settled and more ‘me’ than I have been for many years.  I would absolutely recommend Angela to anyone suffering from anxiety and stress." June 22

" I found Angela by chance when I was in a very sorry state, with depression, anxiety, and panic attacks several times a day.  Bit by bit she has given me the tools to put myself back together again and at last I feel like myself. I cannot thank her enough" Jan 2022

"When I confided in a friend about my anxiety she recommended Angela to me, after experiencing wonderful results from the hypnotherapy treatment herself. I stepped into the process with the mindset that my anxiety was a relatively small issue in my life and almost as a bit of a “can’t hurt to try it” experiment, I got in contact with Angela and our journey began.

Angela is wonderful and makes you feel so comfortable, listened to and valued as a person. I felt I could be so open and honest with her from the first session. Week after week I would really look forward to being able to set aside time to do something for myself that felt increasingly worth while and ultimately life changing to my well-being. It’s really hard to explain but after each session I would feel fuzzy and sleepy, then reset and fresh. As the weeks passed I started to notice such huge improvements in my day to day life and a renewal in confidence that somewhere along the way in life I had lost. It felt like fate that I had chosen to see Angela when I had as several really challenging and unexpected events happened in our family life in the weeks I was having sessions and I know I would not have been able to have handled them in the calm and composed manner I was able to, had it not been for her help. 

I could feel myself growing as a person week after week and a huge sense of pride that I was able to manage these challenges in my life without feeling overcome with anxiety. I felt level minded and happy and this helped so many areas of my home and work life. 

Seeing these vast improvements made me realise what a detrimental effect my worries and subsequent lack of confidence had been having on all aspects of my life. I felt like a new version of myself that was all the best parts of an old version of myself; I felt like me again. 

I’m just so grateful that I was able to meet her and know I have her to return to if I ever feel I need support or help again. I would highly recommend her to anybody, it’s one of the best things I’ve ever done. "  January 2022

"Although I only had a handful of solution-focussed therapy sessions with Angela - I can't really explain how they seemed to help me 'get to grips' with the anxiety I was feeling- and so quickly.  Angela explained the science of our brains so well and what happens as we 're-train' our brain pathways that I had total faith that this was what was happening 

If I feel this overwhelming and overloaded feeling in the future I will have no hesitation to return to Angela's sessions to 'recalibrate' my brain!   I had no idea of this more clinical /scientific side behind it all. I wasn't concerned about the hypnotherapy part as I had 'read up' about what happens beforehand- but I would describe it as a deep relaxation state.  Not in any way out of control.  It was a safe space." Dec 2021

"I am so incredibly grateful to Angela for giving me my freedom back. From anxiety about getting a panic attack when simply just going to a shop to partying in London with hundreds of people within a couple of months.

Angela took the time to get to know me and always remained positive and encouraging when my impatience was getting the better of me. Her energy and positivity is incredible.

I was always looking forward to our weekly sessions, they would leave me charged up and ready to take on the world. I absolutely love the tingling feeling after hypnotherapy. I followed Angela’s guidance and advice, put the work in my end and the results crept in without me even noticing.

Angela has not only given me my freedom back, I’m now able to deal with stressful situations with a much clearer head and have much more confidence.

Thank you Angela, the work you do is incredible.' Nov 2021

'Angela has worked wonders for my teenage son who used to dread bedtime as he could never sleep. Now he falls asleep easily and is far more positive about going to bed. And of course more sleep has made him a much happier person. I highly recommend Angela who is also very easy to chat to and immediately made my son feel at ease. Thank you." Oct 2021

'I have looked forward to and enjoyed every one of my sessions with Angela. They provided a moment of calm contemplation during the week and always left me feeling positive and confident. The sessions and the audio file have really helped me to fall asleep quickly at night and to have a restful night's sleep, it makes such a difference. I would highly recommend hypnotherapy with Angela and am already excited for you to feel the benefits!' Oct 2021

“I was recommended Angela through a family friend, and since meeting and working with her, my whole life has transformed. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is thinking of doing it - you will surprise yourself!

The process is simple,  starting with a phone call, and a few questions. We can book you in to attend your initial consultation at the clinic or online. Clients make progress quickly - each client is individual and presents a different set of issues to work through. We establish what you would like to achieve, then my tailor-made sessions ensure you will reach and be able to maintain your goals, giving you the tools for your toolbox to move on.

Therapy will allow you to take back control and move on with your life in a positive way.

I look forward to speaking to you.

Training, qualifications & experience

Fully trained Clinical Hypnotherapist & Psychotherapist I am really passionate about the work I do - having experienced it first hand through my daughter who was terrified of needles and spiders - she recovered so quickly after so many years of angst.  Sometimes clients don't even realise what is happening - they are scared but not sure why, it can be overwhelming  - it can make you irrational and exhausted. So it wonderful to be able to help clients quickly with long lasting results.

I have also trained in Clinical Medical Hypnotherapy (long term, pain management and clients with and recovering from cancer) and Solution Focused Brief therapy.  Trained by David Muss in the IARTT rewind for PTSD, CBTi for insomnia, and Working with Children and Teenagers. I have regular supervision and CPDs to expand my knowledge and keep me up to date on the latest techniques.

I also volunteer as a resident hypnotherapist for a local care home. With enhanced DBS check and I am fully insured.
