About me

My approach is very client centred, that is to say, I believe I am simply a guide through the hypnosis journey.  My aim is to lead you, the client, to find to your answers, make decisions and affect changes very naturally and very much in your own personal way.  I like to teach self-hypnosis and encourage its use.  Self-hypnosis encourages  independence, and when practiced regularly at home, it has been shown to enhance the guided therapy sessions when used in conjunction with them.

I am very interested in working with anxiety and changing negative emotions around limiting self beliefs.  I find that underlying almost all anxiety is a profound lack of confidence and lack of self-esteem.  This creates a fear of setting goals, lack of motivation, the adoption of unwanted habits, thus further damaging self esteem, and so it goes on.

I believe if a person can feel good about themselves, really feel they are their own best friend and have a solid foundation of confidence self worth, then they can achieve anything they genuinely, and ethically, want. I aim to let people feel and understand the qualities they already have and give them the power they need to make the right choices, feel better about themselves and change their lives so that they can become the person they want to be. Sports psychology is of great interest, but of course you don't have to be a sportsperson to suffer from performance anxiety: this affects anyone who is simply having to put themselves out there in front of an audience, this could be as small as an audience of one during a job interview, giving a presentation at work, pre-wedding or exam nerves.

Training, qualifications & experience

Following a degree in philosophy and psychology, and with a keen interest in the human condition, I have attained full training and post graduate certificate awarded by the London College of Clinical Hypnosis.  Continued professional development (CPD) courses and the regular attendance of conferences and seminars run by the Open University Psychological Society ensure the best possible levels of updated knowledge and training.

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.

Therapies offered

  • Cognitive hypnotherapy
  • Ericksonian hypnosis
  • Hypno-psychotherapy
  • Solution focused hypnotherapy
  • Suggestion hypnotherapy


£50 per hour session with hypnosis lasting around 25/40 minutes depending on your needs. The first session will be one and a half hours with the first half hour free of charge. This is so that we may get to know each other and you have the choice to decide whether hypnosis is right for you.

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a hypnotherapist's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the hypnotherapist to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
