About me

"You can get there from here"

Supporting you on your journey from mood and motivation issues, to overcoming habits and barriers, and leading you to higher performance, purpose and meaning. 

Evidence-based hypnotherapy, mindfulness-based approaches, cognitive behavioural therapies and stress management. A science-based approach without the woo-woo.

I have a passion for helping people overcome those mood and motivation issues, and habits that are stopping them from leading the life they truly want.

I hope to bring down some of the barriers to participation in therapy and coaching and therefore encourage people, who might not usually come to therapy to make the changes they need. Mine is a collaborative and open approach, focussing on building a strong therapeutic alliance and teamwork to get you where you need to be.

I draw heavily on values-based goal setting, problem solving therapy, stress inoculation, and behavioural and mindfulness-based approaches alongside hypnosis.

In addition to supporting my clients with mental health, life and work issues, I also work extensively with athletes to help them optimise their performance.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

The General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR)

Hypnotherapists may become members of the General Hypnotherapy Register if they satisfy certain criteria with regard to both training and ongoing requirements as determined from time to time by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC).

Members are either registered at Practitioner status (which confirms that the GHR acknowledges their qualification to practice), or Affiliate status. Although Affiliate level registrants will have completed a sufficient number of training hours to equip them to commence seeing clients on a limited basis, the GHR does not acknowledge them to have yet been trained to full practitioner level.

All GHR Registered Practitioners are required to accept the published Code of Ethics and Complaints & Disciplinary Procedure.

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

  • Men's mental health.
  • Life transitions and changes.
  • Work, life and athletic performance.
  • Mid-life malaise.
  • Lack of joy, purpose and meaning in life.
  • Motivation.
  • Overcoming habits.
  • Resilience building.
  • Enhancing psychological flexibility.
