About me

I work as a Clinical Hypnotherapist seeing adults and children in London, Hemel Hempstead and Chesham. I am a medically qualified doctor and worked as an NHS GP in Buckinghamshire for 17 years followed by several years in the private sector. After several years of balancing General Practice and Hypnotherapy, I am now taking a break from General Practice to focus on Hypnotherapy. I find the combination of medical knowledge with the extensive experience of seeing and talking to patients over the years is invaluable in my hypnotherapy practice in helping to get to the root of the issue or problem to be addressed.

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.

Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with

Hypnotherapy in children including
Habits - nail biting, thumbsucking, hair pulling (trichotillomania)
Confidence and low self esteem
Exam nerves
Sleep problems

Key details

Wheelchair user access
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.
