Is your usual way of coping no longer working? Are you tired of going through the motions, putting on a brave face? I know it takes courage to reach out and ask for help! You don't have to struggle alone. Let me help you go easier on yourself!
I work collaboratively with clients to help them reconnect with their natural ability to change and grow. Often, we are our own worse critics, beating ourselves up with self-blame and feelings of worthlessness leaving us spiralling into depression or frozen with fear and anxiety.
What would your life be like without those feelings holding you back?
Together we can explore what is really going on for you, and help you connect with your resilience, confidence, self-worth, self-esteem and personal power.
Whether you want to improve your relationship with your children, wife or husband, change your relationship with food, drugs, alcohol, work through the pain of grief or move on from a traumatic experience in your past, Hypnotherapy with a safe and compassionate therapist, can really help.
I am an Advanced Hypnotherapist with a Diploma in Solution-Focused Hypnotherapy. I am also currently working towards UKCP Accreditation with the National College of Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy. I have an MA in Clinical Counselling from the University of Chester and I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

The CNHC encompasses many types of alternative therapy, including hypnotherapy.
In order to be admitted to the register a practitioner must have studied to the National Occupational Standards for that profession/discipline, or have reached the equivalent of the National Occupational Standards through other relevant training or at least three years of experience and been assessed by their peers.
A practitioner must also have professional insurance and agree to abide by the CNHC Code of Conduct, Performance and Ethics.
National Council for Hypnotherapy
The National Council for Hypnotherapy holds one of the largest registers of independent Hypnotherapists in the United Kingdom and strives to maintain the highest standards among its members.
There is an agreed Code of Conduct, an established Complaints & Disciplinary Procedure and all members are obliged to maintain comprehensive Public Liability & Professional Indemnity Insurance, maintain regular CPD (continuing professional development) hours, and attend Supervision when needed.

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.
Thursday to Saturday various dates and times.
