About me

I am a hypnotherapist with many years experience based in Earley, Reading where I see clients in my spacious, private therapy room. Whether you need help with anxiety, lack of confidence, fears, phobias, panic attacks, sleep, chronic pain or want to reduce the amount you drink, eat, smoke or vape I can help.

I see clients for a wide range of issues, so if you’re looking for help for something I haven’t mentioned above then please do still get in touch.

Getting Started

To get started all you need to do is to contact me to arrange your initial complimentary phone or video consultation. This consultation will give us time to talk about the changes you'd like to make, how I can help you and you can of course also ask any questions you have about hypnotherapy in general or the approaches I use.

Please get in touch even if you are just researching the possibility of hypnotherapy right now, I am always happy to talk.

I look forward to speaking with you.



Here’s a couple of testimonials previous clients have kindly left me, there are some more on my website if you’d like to take a look.

"Despite not knowing what to expect Debbie put me at ease from the first time I spoke with her. I felt she really had my interests at heart as she talked through options for treatment. I went with no expectations having received various treatment for anxiety in the past but she helped me to unblock my mind and I can honestly say I have come away more confident and less fearful. Thanks so much Debbie." (google review)

"I recently met with Debbie for 4x sessions of Hypnotherapy for Anxiety. Debbie has helped me so much facing my demons and everything that comes with having heightened anxiety. 

Debbie is professional yet down to earth and really makes you feel at ease from the moment you meet her. She shows kindness and empathy for what you are talking about.

I cannot thank you enough and will be looking forward to seeing you again for a refresher in the coming months." (google review)

Training, qualifications & experience

Since qualifying I undertaken specialist training in helping clients with Trauma.

I am subject to Anxiety UK’s regular monitoring of my professional qualifications, supervision, continual professional development, insurance and professional body membership in addition to complying with the ethical framework and professional standards set down by the BSCH.

Hypnotherapy can enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice.
