About me

I offer Solution focused hypnotherapy which is a brain-based therapy and is different to traditional approaches. What makes it special is the fact that it is based on neuroscience and utilises clinically proven, powerful techniques to help you to make significant and long-lasting changes to the way you think and feel, so you can achieve your goals effortlessly.

Whether you want to be more confident, feel motivated or take control of your behaviour or fears, I can help.   

Having completely overcome my own experience of acute anxiety, I know that it is entirely possible to make BIG changes to the way your brain naturally works.  You absolutely CAN be the best version of you, living a life that is happy and fulfilling.  My clients tell me that they find it reassuring to work with a therapist who really understands what they are experiencing.

I can help with many issues such as;

  • general anxiety
  • Obsessive Compulsion Disorder
  • phobias
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • self-confidence, self-esteem etc. 
  • depression
  • weight control/eating habits
  • pain management
  • quitting smoking

If you are struggling with anything that is not on the list, please do get in touch to find out if hypnotherapy can help you.

My calm and private therapy room is situated in Drayton Village, near Abingdon, with easy parking and facilities.

If you would like to work with someone who is kind, caring and empathic, who understands what you are going through and can motivate you to make the changes you want to make to your thoughts, feelings or behaviour – I might be the right fit for you.  My aim is for all clients to leave each session feeling lighter and happier, calm and ready to achieve significant changes in their lives.  

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Bsc (Hons) degree in Psychology and many years of providing emotional support to young people and their families. 

I also hold a Hypnotherapy Practitioners Diploma awarded by the NCFE, which is the gold standard in Hypnotherapy training, as well as a Diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy from Clifton Practice Hypnotherapy Training.

I am a registered member of the Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH) and the National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH), so you can have confidence that I am fully insured and follow a code of professional conduct and ethics.

Additionally I am a fully qualified mindfulness teacher, aspects of which I often draw from during my work with clients.

I am also an “AnxietyUK Approved” therapist.

Further information


Quitting smoking - Ben

"Having smoked 30 or more cigarettes every day for the last 35 years, and having tried unsuccessfully to give up several times over that period, I didn’t really expect to manage this time.

However, Esme was amazing, very calm and empathetic and I haven’t had a smoke since my session. The CD she gave me was immensely helpful, too, allowing me to reach back to the session whenever I needed. I cannot thank her enough."

Phobia treatment - Natalie   

"I have had a phobia of deep water and fish since I was a small child (I am now 45!). I have tried many times to overcome this but have never been successful… until I tried Hypnotherapy with Esme.

Esme worked wonders by helping me understand how my brain works and used hypnotherapy techniques to overcome this deep fear and phobia – it has worked! This is life changing!

Esme is calm, logical and sensitive. I would recommend her without hesitation- she has changed my life for the better."

Self-confidence - Jackie

"Hypnotherapy has been life changing for me. I can’t believe how much I got from it. Esme is very calming and you feel safe and at ease with her.

It has taught me ways to believe in myself, and to try new things that I would not of had the confidence to do before."
