About me

I am a fully qualified experienced psychotherapist and CNHC registered Hypnotherapist and Hypno-Psychotherapist helping people with a wide range of issues from anxiety and depression, to weight problems, panic including panic attacks, fears and phobias

I work as a psychotherapist, using hypnotherapy when it is helpful and appropriate in terms of the individual and their presenting issue(s)

NHS experience:

Having been with the NHS for 17 years (Head of Department 2001-2010), working with people with hearing loss, tinnitus and balance (vestibular) problems, primarily with those who have additional mental health issues that exacerbate the negative effects of tinnitus, I took early retirement from the NHS in May 2010 in order to set up my own practice in Clitheroe

Where we are:

The Clitheroe Therapies Clinic is easily accessible by bus, train and car with parking at the rear of the building in Lowergate car park. The entrance is opposite Clitheroe Castle gates, between Elan boutique and Honeywell estate agents

Areas of hypnotherapy I deal with

* If you have been diagnosed or suspect you may have one of the medical conditions starred above, you should consult your GP for advice, diagnosis and treatment and always inform your health professional before starting any alternative or additional therapies or treatments.

Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with

Tinnitus Management:

Hypnotherapy is not an evidence-based standalone treatment for tinnitus; however, tinnitus distress is driven by the Autonomic Nervous System therefore, hypnotherapy can contribute as part of a treatment plan for tinnitus
