About me

As a qualified, experienced hypnotherapist I have helped many clients with a range of issues, working with them to feel happier, calmer and more in control of their emotions and behaviours. I believe we all have the ability to move past our difficulties and thrive, we just need the right support and encouragement. What better time than now to make positive changes for a better life?

I am a warm and open minded person who understands the importance of the therapeutic relationship. I will do my best to make sure you feel heard and understood as well as gathering as much information as I can about the issue that’s troubling you, how it affects your day to day life and how you would like things to be going forward. We will then set a plan in place with the focus on increasing your self- worth, identifying your strengths and improving your decision making so you can make the changes necessary to restore inner peace and enjoy life again.

Hypnotherapy is a pleasant and healing experience where the client leaves feeling relaxed and inspired with an enhanced sense of wellbeing - the perfect foundation for positive change.

If you would like to find out more about how I may be able to help you please call or email anytime for further information or for a friendly, no obligation chat.

"Before I first saw Fan I was very sceptical about hypnotherapy, but I can truly say it has helped me more than I could have ever imagined. It has taught me how to truly relax and has helped me overcome certain factors in my life which were affecting me in a seriously negative way. Sessions are made much, much easier by the welcoming and comforting environment Fan provides from the very first minute of meeting her. I can't thank her enough for what she did and continues to do for me and I will continue seeing her for the foreseeable future" BP, Herts

“ Meeting Fan was the best thing I have ever done!
After my 18 year Marriage came to an end I was broken. Fan has made me believe in myself again and has given me the confidence I lost many years ago due to a toxic relationship, she’s helped me to build self love and gain feelings of being excited about starting my new life!
Fan is a kind, gentle and very knowledgeable lady and I really look forward to my session each week “ WK, Royston

“I am thrilled to be a client of Fan’s. She makes you feel completely safe and supported. With her help, I am very confident of achieving my aims.” RC, Hitchin

”My emotions were stopping me enjoying life and I couldn’t find a way forward. Right from the very first appointment Fan’s gentle, non judgemental attitude put me at ease and her skilled approach has given me back my purpose and I look forward to the future again I cannot thank her enough” SL, Cambs

”I didn’t think I would ever get on top of my problems with food, but after a few sessions with Fan I was able to change the way I looked at my life and realise I had a choice in everything I do. I left every session feeling calm and ready to do things differently! With Fan’s support and encouragement I have overcome so much more than I ever thought possible” JJ, Cambridge
