About me

Are you overcome with life challenges of stress, anxiety, addictions or other emotional issues and want to be rid of these, then I can help using a range of various tried and tested and successful techniques to allow you to feel in control of your life and help you to move forward and enjoy your life taking control of the things that hold you back in life, be it weight issues, bad habits such as drink, drugs or cigarettes, phobias, confidence issues, health or emotional issues. Are you struggling to become pregnant or need help to bring your baby calmly into the world. Is a child or young person in your household needing help.

Being diagnosed with Breast cancer in 2006 changed the world I live in and realising the struggle and anxieties that come with illness I began to focus upon using the mind to aid recovery and honed in on hypnosis and technique systems to build my inner strength, regaining positivity in my life.

My approach

-  Is personalised

-  Varied cutting edge therapy techniques

-  On-going support

-  Lasting positive effects through intensive session structure

-  Individual hypnosis CD/MP3 to support session work.

My regular clinics in North Leeds are 15 mins by car from M1, M62, A1 and Leeds City Centre, (just off the A61 that runs from Leeds to Harrogate) with easy parking. By bus, take the 7A bus to The Avenue, in Alwoodley, which is 5 mins walk from the clinic.

Having a therapy room overlooking Eccup Reservoir in Leeds all adds to the relaxing experience even before therapy begins. Children coming for therapy really look forward to coming as there are many distractions, helping them feel at ease

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.
