Hello and thank you for reading my profile! I really enjoy helping people to help themselves through the power of the subconscious mind. I work from home and offer therapy times to suit - during daytime and certain evenings. Most of my work is done via Zoom these days which means that I can work with you from the comfort of your own home. Zoom really does work perfectly well and is just as good as a face to face appointment - provided that you have a laptop/desktop/phone and a quiet comfortable place to sit or lie down.
I work intuitively and holistically with each one of my clients and, depending on specific issues, most prefer to have more than one session.
My career as a Clinical Hypnotherapist began in 2001. As a therapist, I have worked with clients between the ages of 14-78 years old, with a wide range of conditions from anxiety to phobias, to stopping smoking and losing weight. Enabling my clients to gain control over distressing aspects of their lives is a uniquely rewarding experience and I feel privileged to play my part in their recovery process.
I am originally from Aberdeen where I was involved in marketing businesses. I have two grown up daughters and two grandsons. For more than ten years, I worked with young people with Aspergers Syndrome and ASD and extensively with children in the care system.
Training, qualifications & experience
In 2001, I gained a Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy from Chrysalis Counseling in Wells, Somerset. In addition to over 20 years experience I have done a wide range of training in mental health conditions.
I am also an accredited HypnoBand Practitioner (virtual gastric band) and have successfully helped people to permanently improve their relationships with food.
My main areas of expertise are in reducing anxiety and stress, helping people to recover from trauma and to re-establish healing connections between body and mind.

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.
