About me

As a Clinical Hypnotherapist and Therapeutic Life Coach, I help you transform your wellbeing and confidence. I work in an integrative way, which means I use a range of approaches tailored to your needs. These include: Hypnotherapy, NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming), EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), CBT and Life coaching as well as Old Pain 2 Go.

I specialise in the following areas:

  •  Anxiety, Panic, PTSD
  • Stress, Overwhelm and Burn-out
  • Low Mood & Depression
  • Pain Management and Reduction
  • Confidence and Self-esteem
  • Fears and Phobias
  • Relaxation and general well-being
  • Helping you to get ‘unstuck’ and move forward with confidence and positivity!

I am a firm believer that, if our wellbeing and confidence are out of kilter, then we stop thriving in our personal and professional lives. We can get stuck in negative thought patterns; feel overwhelmed and de-motivated and lose the enjoyment in day-to-day activities. I support you to move past these thoughts and behaviours to really move forward in a positive, calm and confident way.

Therapy & Coaching sessions 

I offer therapy and coaching sessions both face-to-face and online via Zoom. Sessions generally last 60 mins unless otherwise agreed.

Clinics I work from are:

  • We Are Wellness, North Hill Road, Leeds LS6 2EN
  • The Tower Clinic, Tinshill Lane, Leeds LS16 7AP

It’s important that before starting therapy or coaching, we have an initial call to allow you to find out more about how I can help and how I work. The number of sessions required may vary depending on the issue you are seeking support with. We can discuss this in more detail during our initial conversation.

Initial Consultation

I offer a free, no obligation initial call of 20mins so that you can find out more about hypnotherapy and coaching. This is an opportunity for us to discuss in more detail the issue you need support with and how I can help. It is important that we are happy to work together, so that you can experience positive results!

Member organisations

GHR
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.
