I create a warm, confidential, friendly and safe environment where you can talk about the reason you have come to hypnotherapy, whilst feeling supported, valued and heard.
I am an experienced Accredited Hypnotherapist/Psychotherapist, recognised with the Royal College of Nursing. I have a busy practice in Wainscott near Rochester and Therapy rooms in Greenhithe, Dartford. Hypnotherapy encourages you to take back control of your life, giving you the tools you need to achieve the changes you desire.
There are no drugs or pain involved. Hypnotherapy is a little like daydreaming. A feeling of being totally relaxed, but totally in control. It is a natural state of relaxation, most of us entering into Hypnosis at least twice a day naturally. Many of us have driven to work and not remembered the journey? This is a form of Hypnotherapy (not recommended)
What can you expect from me?
- Appointments are up to 60 minutes to enable you to be able to talk, relax and feel comfortable.
- If you would like to call me on 01634 713054, leaving your number I will be happy to return your call to talk further, or text me on 01789 120128.
Normally we would start with a free 30 minute (no obligation) introductory session to see if you feel comfortable talking to me (which is really important).
At this time I will explain how Hypnotherapy works. I will take time to listen to you about any worries or fears you may have or would like to discuss with me! This gives you time to decide if I am the right therapist for you.
We will discuss what you would like to change and explore how we can achieve this together.
Hypnotherapy is a very relaxing experience and you will be aware at all times. In no way can Hypnotherapy make you do or act in a way that you would not want or feel uncomfortable with!
I believe we all have the ability to change our negative thoughts and feelings. My goal is to give you the tools to help you achieve yours.
I provide a safe, caring, confidential, environment where you will be able to express your concerns to me freely.
Our Main practice is in Wainscott near Rochester, which is very close to Strood station and on a local bus route. The practice rooms are very quiet and private. There is free parking within a quiet gated area. It is easily accessible from the A2. 228, and Gravesend.
Our other therapy rooms are based at Greenhithe Therapy Centre, near Dartford. This practice is situated opposite the Judo Club in Cotton Lane, Stone. This offers free parking within the Judo Club car park. This is easily accessible from the M25, A2, Dartford and Gravesend. The nearest train station would be Dartford or Greenhithe. It is also on a local bus route.
Both practices are held in a discreet location, providing a safe, warm, non-judgemental, confidential place to express your thoughts and feelings. You will be in control at all times.

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 am a practicing therapist with the Harmony Therapy Trust! They are a registered charity providing Free NHS Approved Complementary Therapy to those coping with Cancers or other serious life altering illnesses in Kent.
I work closely with the local hospitals, having done several talks for DVH hospital and also with the local support cancer groups. I have worked with many patients referred to me by the hospital and am happy to do home visits where patients have trouble accessing our practices.
Hypnotherapy can be helpful with many side effects with regards to your treatment.
Fear of Hospitals
