I pride myself in my absolute commitment to each individual client with each problem they present with. I am eager to strive to help everyone with their individual needs.
I can help you achieve all of your goals! Whether its life limiting thought patterns, weight loss, confidence boosting, dealing with a childhood event that has shaped your adult life, stopping smoking, anxiety issues, self worth, phobias and fears (spiders, flying etc) and i can work with you through your amazing Trans Gender journey. Whatever the real issue is i can help with hypnotherapy techniques.
Hypnotherapy is a completely safe way to change habits and behaviors helping you to move from where you are now to where you really want to be in life! I can give you tools and techniques to take with you from the comfort of my therapy room and as part of therapy, make sure you have all of the coping strategies you will need for the future in living a fullfilled life.

Members are either registered at Practitioner status (which confirms that the GHR acknowledges their qualification to practice), or Affiliate status. Although Affiliate level registrants will have completed a sufficient number of training hours to equip them to commence seeing clients on a limited basis, the GHR does not acknowledge them to have yet been trained to full practitioner level.
All GHR Registered Practitioners are required to accept the published Code of Ethics and Complaints & Disciplinary Procedure.
