About me

Are you living with anxiety, depression, stress overwhelm?  Do you have problems managing your weight, or want to quit smoking?

Hypnotherapy can help with all these and more!  It has a good track record for helping people cope better and build resilience in their lives - after all, stress happens. 

Are you ready to make long lasting, positive changes for your future health and well being - for a happier you?  Contact me for a free 20 minute no obligation telephone consultation.

Hypnotherapy works equally well in a face-to-face setting, and using technology such as Zoom or Skype so distance need not be an issue.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained with the Clifton Practice Hypnotherapy Training, a highly regarded hypnotherapy training school at the forefront of modern hypnotherapy delivery. I have a Diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (DSFH), and have also attained the Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma (HPD), considered to be the 'gold standard' in hypnotherapy.

I regularly attended continued professional development sessions to continue my training and expand on my interests in the field of neuroscience and hypnosis, as well as reading extensively around the subject.

I have developed my own programmes in weight management (a 6 week kick start to changing your habits for long term results) and hypnobirthing, helping prospective parents have the best birth experience they can to welcome their new baby into the world - and I also teach other hypnotherapy practitioners about it.

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.

Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with

I have my own 6 week kick start Weight Management Programme, developed through my own interest in the area - I lost 3 stone and have maintained my weight for nearly 4 years which is testament to the power of changing your mind set!

Further information

I am a firm believer in giving people knowledge and strategies to prevent stress overload, so they can lead happier lives.
