About me

I am a Solution Focused Clinical Hypnotherapist working in East Lancashire, specifically my therapy room in Burnley. Solution Focused Hypnotherapy differs from other forms of hypnotherapy by identifying the problem and then working positively together to achieve the changes required. The techniques I use are backed by the latest neuroscience alongside hypnosis to give the desired results as quickly as possible.

I offer a 50 minute initial consultation at better than half the normal price to let you decide whether I am the right therapist for you, during this I will take a brief health history before explaining how the brain works in simple terms. The sessions are conducted professionally and confidentially in a relaxed setting, you will be free to ask questions and will leave with a relaxation CD/ Download that helps with confidence and aids sleep. It is important that the client listens to this between sessions in order to enhance the therapy.

I use Solution Focused Hypnotherapy to help people with anxiety, depression, panic attacks and OCD. Weight management and smoking cessation are other areas that can be addressed and can offer positive results.

I am a member of the Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH), the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) and the National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH).
