About me

Delivering online Hypnotherapy sessions, throughout the UK and in person at one of York's long established clinics for Integrated Healthcare.

Why choose me?

I'm allowed to call myself an Advanced Practitioner and around 1% of UK hypnotherapists have successfully completed their studies to this level. Even more importantly, I run a very busy practice, which means I'm constantly being presented with challenging cases and this has helped me to become more of a specialist than a generalist. I've helped a great many people with a great many issues and my results speak for themselves (see below).

Interested in what others have to say about me and my work?


It is easy to book an appointment through my online booking system.


Or, you may instead choose to arrange a complimentary telephone consultation to discuss your requirements and gain confidence in the positive results that I deliver.


Why I believe I can help you.

I have a range of skills to help my clients and I've invested thousands of pounds in my professional development. When I meet a client, together we choose what will work best for them, rather than adopting a 'one size' fits all approach, after all, we are all unique.

At my disposal, I have Clinical Hypnotherapy, Neuro-linguistic Programming, and my skills as a Motivation Therapist and Coach. I'm qualified at an Advanced Level for Hypnotherapy (NQF 6) within my professional body of the General Hypnotherapy Register. I combine the skills I've developed as a Clinical Hypnotherapists and those gained as a Master Practitioner of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) to help my clients.

Often people come and see me after struggling with issues for years, having found my profile it would be great if you became one of the growing numbers that say "I wished I had found your help sooner".

What will you say, after we resolve whatever has led you to read my profile?

Where I can help.

I aim to become one of the UK's most trusted and recommended Clinical Hypnotherapists, and this can only be achieved by delivering great results, with care, compassion, and understanding.

Here is a list of the areas where more commonly hypnosis can resolve both short and long-term issues:
Anxiety, Stress, Depression, Post Traumatic Stress (PTSD), Habits, Weight Management, Fears & Phobias, Jealousy, Confidence, Anger Management, Sleep, Self-esteem, Eating, and Addiction.

This is not an exhaustive list and please get in touch to explore how I can help you.

What to expect from the first session.

An initial session lasts for 75 minutes. I always offer my clients a cup of tea or coffee, and there is also always plenty of filtered water available.

There will be a step by step explanation of what to expect at each stage and we will work at a speed to suit you.

Your comfort and safety are paramount, I'm confident you will be pleasantly surprised by just how relaxing Hypnotherapy can be and just how effective it will be in helping deliver the positive lasting change you wish for.

Whilst in this deeply relaxed state, you will be aware of your surroundings, be able to hear the sound of my voice and I will play some music that helps enhance the experience.

Many times in your life you will have been in an eyes-open state of hypnosis, whilst watching a film or when driving and arriving at your destination without quite remembering the journey. There are many myths and misconceptions about hypnosis and I will dispel any that you might have.

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

I have worked very successfully with hundreds of people who wanted to lose weight, and I myself have lost over six stones in weight. As such I have a real passion and understanding for those with weight issues.

Hypnosis and hypnotherapy are highly effective in helping those looking to lose weight.

In addition to my skills as a Clinical Hypnotherapist, Master Practitioner in NLP and Motivation Therapist, I also trained with the UK's leading Slimming organisation as a consultant.

Another area where my skills are especially effective is with those suffering from low self-esteem, anxiety or panic attacks. Through the use of motivation therapy, hypnosis, NLP and my knowledge and expertise as I coach, I can provide positive lasting change.

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.

Wheelchair access is only available at my office in Heworth on a Monday.
