About me

Are you struggling to lose weight or quit smoking?  Maybe you have confidence issues or are suffering from stress, anxiety or insomnia? Perhaps you have a phobia you would like to overcome or some other form of unhealthy habit such as nail biting.

Hypnotherapy can be a relatively quick and effective way to bring about long lasting changes in your life. It targets those unhealthy learnt behaviours at their source, deep in your subconscious mind. By helping you to relax into a hypnotic state, those old, unwanted behaviours can be changed into something new, positive and healthy, allowing you to live the life you desire.

Just as everyone is capable of dreaming (even if you don't remember your dreams), everyone can be put into a hypnotic state if they wish to. Your experience in hypnosis will be very similar to dreaming in that you will retain some level of awareness of where you are and what is happening, however, at the same time, your mind is elsewhere, experiencing a variety of thoughts, images and sensations.

We begin your treatment with a consultation which lasts up to 50 minutes. This allows us to find out more about what you're struggling with, what you are hoping to achieve from the treatment and whether hypnotherapy is the best route forward for you. It's also a great opportunity to explain more about how hypnosis works and answer any questions you may have. After the consultation, if you choose to go ahead with the treatment, we will book you in for the main sessions. If for any reason you decide that hypnotherapy is not the way forward for you, then that is perfectly fine.

My specialities are Stop Smoking Hypnosis and Weight Loss Hypnotherapy, particularly the hypnotic gastric band, all of which we have an approximate 90% success rate with. I am also able to see clients for a wide variety of other issues including insomnia, phobias, confidence building, nail biting, drinking issues and other unhealthy habits. So for a no obligation consultation, please contact me today. 

I offer a flexible appointment schedule and can usually see clients from 8am up until 8pm on weekdays and from 8am to 4pm on Saturdays.

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.
