About me

Hi, I am a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist / Psychotherapist, I help clients find their happy, confident, calm  self, after they have not felt that way for a while.  I am  based in Carlisle, but I see most of my clients online, which is great when they live all over the Country. I do also offer in person appointments too.

To book a free consultation, where we chat about how I can help you, please feel free to text, leave a voicemail or e mail me and I will get back to you within 24 hours .

So here is a little explanation of what Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is and what issues it can help with.

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (SFH) is a type of Psychological talk therapy with some fun relaxing Hypnosis included. (The fun bit is what my clients call it). It differs slightly from other types of Hypnosis as we do not dig up past traumas or go into detail about past hurtful events. instead we chat and find the steps you need to take to get to your preferred future and be your best self. And it works quickly and equally well for 5 year olds to 105 year olds.

It helps and heals many mental and sometimes physical problems, as a lot of physical pain can be aggregated by being stressed.

Some of the things I have helped clients with are:

  • Anxiety
  • Stress
  • Sleep Disorders
  • Sports Performance
  • Weight Management
  • Phobias Addictions
  • Self Harm
  • OCD
  • ADHD
  • Confidence Issues

To name a few.
