Training, qualifications & experience
My approach is non-judgemental, constructive and absolutely committed to helping you achieve the positive changes you wish to make.
I became interested in hypnotherapy after speaking to friends who had successfully used it to overcome a phobia and quit smoking. I was impressed by their results and how it changed their lives for the better. This led me to training at the Clifton Practice, a recognised leader and centre of excellence for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy.
I worked as a nurse for over twenty years in many areas including operating theatres and the community. I have gained my nursing experience in major centres of teaching including Guy's and St Thomas' Hospital, Chelsea and Westminster Hospital and Sydney Hospital/Sydney Eye Hospital. I have experienced people at their most vulnerable times. I am used to working with people who are stressed, in pain and sometimes in fear.
I hope to impart my enthusiasm and my belief that hypnotherapy really does work, and that simple changes can make dramatic positive results to people’s lives.
I like my sessions to be informal, thought provoking and everyone to leave with a smile.

Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy
The Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH) was set up to provide information about a modern form of Hypnotherapy and its associated benefits to members of the public. The main aim of the AfSFH is to spread awareness of the benefits of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy. Its secondary aim is to support Hypnotherapists in their businesses by encouraging good practice and self-care.

In order to be admitted to the register a practitioner must have studied to the National Occupational Standards for that profession/discipline, or have reached the equivalent of the National Occupational Standards through other relevant training or at least three years of experience and been assessed by their peers.
A practitioner must also have professional insurance and agree to abide by the CNHC Code of Conduct, Performance and Ethics.

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.
Initial Consultation: Free - A preliminary and informal discussion including a detailed explanation on how the brain works and how hypnotherapy can help you.
Individual Sessions (50 minutes per session) £65 per session - The number of sessions required varies and it is dependent on the client's needs. On average we will need 8 to 12 sessions. Specific phobias can be treated in just 3 sessions. This will be assessed during the initial consultation.
Stop Smoking : £130 - This is a one-off longer session for helping you to quit smoking. Around two hours and includes a motivational CD/digital recording. (50% non-refundable deposit is required on booking.)
The prices shown include CD/digital recording support and are payable at the end of each session by Cash or cheque.
How to get started…

Here I can find out more about the problem, what you’d like to gain from hypnotherapy and answer any questions you may have. No therapy takes place at this meeting and there is no obligation to continue.
