I am a Senior Hypnotherapist, Psychotherapist and Counsellor, specialised in anxiety, obsessional states and emotional/psychological problems. I have a very good success rate in helping these conditions, details of which can be viewed on our website.
Hypnotherapy to stop smoking can be accomplished within 2 hours (following a free initial session). I also help couples or individuals with relationship problems.
I have two special interests. The first is in anxiety disorders, obsessional states. OCD and depression, and stems partly from personal experience. I have over 20 years of combined study and work with mental health patients and therapy clients.
My second area of interest is in the field of relationships and attachment. This encompasses the majority of distressing emotional states, as well as psychosexual problems.
Therapies include: hypnoanaysis, regression, solution-focused therapy, CBT, suggestion threrapy, NLP, attachment focused counselling, couple counselling, as well as general counselling and advice. All treatments are based on proper research, or a good track record of success over the past century of hypnotherapy.
I work either online or from professional premises near the Outlet Village in Swindon, within easy reach by bus or train, with free parking available.

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
Initial FREE Assessment Consultation
All new clients are initially offered a free 30-60 minute appointment to assess how I will be able to help (with no obligation to go ahead).
Hypnotherapy, Psychotherapy, Counselling, Therapist Supervision
£70 per 60 minute session
£100 per 90+ minute session
Pain by cash, card or transfer when the session is booked.
Please let me know if you cannot afford the regular price. There are a limited number of concessions available for people on a low income. I don't want you to remain unwell simply because you cannot afford the regular price.
Stop Smoking Therapy
Initially I offer the same FREE 30-60 minute appointment. If you decide to proceed to the second (2-hour) session the cost is £180 payable when the session is booked. Anyone who feels the need to see me again within one month of the second session will be offered a free follow up.
It is important to let us know if you need to rearrange or cancel an appointment. I need you to let me know at least 48 hours before the time of your appointment.
A charge of half the amount paid is usually payable for cancellations with less than 48 hours notice. The full amount is only payable in the event of a 'no show' or less than an hour's notice. Money not payable for the cancelled appointment can be carried forward and go towards your next appointment.

£70 per 60 minute session payable in advance (by card or transfer). There is no call charge since I phone you.
