About me

Are you looking for professional, safe, effective hypnotherapy with a highly experienced Hypnotherapist who is also a qualified medical doctor?

Non-judgemental, warm, friendly and totally down to earth, I will approach you as a unique individual recognising that you are the expert on you.

Rather than focusing only on medical labels, my unique set of skills allows me to take a uniquely broad, holistic view of your current issues, looking at physical, psychological, emotional, social and lifestyle factors that may be having an impact on your current health and well being..

My therapeutic approach is entirely client-focused. All personal one to one sessions are uniquely tailored to your particular individual needs. Confidentiality and ethical practice are at the for front of how I work at all times.

My aim is always to help you achieve genuine, lasting positive change safely in the fastest time possible for you.
