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

- Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT / tapping)
- Mindfulness - Relaxation and Meditation
- Past Life Regression
- Between Lives Regression

As a former 20 plus a day smoker and someone who has previously lost over 40 lbs (nearly 3 stone) in weight I am more than qualified to help you give up smoking or vaping, or to get you progressing to your weight loss goal.
