About me

As a certified Clinical Hypnotherapist, NLP Practitioner and Coach, I am passionate about using my skills to support you to make the positive changes that you want to make in your life.

I discovered hypnotherapy by chance some years ago when I was struggling with stress and anxiety. The positive impact of those sessions has stayed with me to this day – they even inspired me to train and become a hypnotherapist. I've since added the powerful skills of NLP to my toolbox.

My focus is on supporting people to improve their well-being by using hypnotherapy and coaching techniques to empower them to overcome the challenges they are facing and achieve their goals, boost their positivity, confidence and self-esteem.

I can help with most issues that may be affecting a person's sense of well-being, particularly stress, anxiety , low mood, confidence and weight-loss. I specialise in supporting women through infertility, childbirth, early parenthood and menopause.

As well as offering individual sessions I run group workshops for individuals and organisations and I'm also developing a range of self-study courses. You can also sign up to my wellbeing newsletter to receive information, ideas and support by e-mail. I work both in person and on-line.

I chose the name Aurora, meaning dawn, as the name for my practice as hypnotherapy can mean a fresh new start for anyone who wants to make a positive change in their lives.

My practice is positive, caring and empowering and puts you its at its heart. Take the first step today and get in touch to find out more.

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


Hypnotherapy is one of the most effective ways to reduce stress and increase feelings of calmness and relaxation which can aid natural conception. it can also help to restore confidence in yourself and your body.

Post Natal support

Helping you to adjust to your new lives as mum or dad. Hypnotherapy can help you to become ‘good enough’ parents, rather than striving for perfection. I can assist you to resist the temptation to criticise what you do and what what don’t do, to relax into your new role as a parent, whilst also keeping the juggling balls in the air of your individual needs, your needs as a couple as well as the needs of your new baby.

Additional information

If you'd like to have a chat about hypnotherapy and how it may help you, please just get in touch and we can have a chat on the phone or on-line. There's no charge for this.

At our first session we'll have a detailed chat about what you'd like to achieve, how hypnosis can help and how I work as well as a hypnotherapy relaxation exercise. You'll also get a relaxation recording to use at home.

All sessions are tailored to meet your individual needs and last up to 1 hour. The number of hypnotherapy sessions needed varies from person to person depending on your needs and the goal you'd like to achieve.

Sessions take place in a private, comfortable environment either at the Nurture Centre in Carmarthen or the Ark in Haverfordwest. I also offer hypnotherapy sessions online so you can relax in the comfort of your own home.

I can take payment by cash, cheque or bank transfer.
