Using the power of hypnosis with hypnotherapy and Integral Eye Movement Therapy (IEMT), my aim is to help my clients gain their full potential and realise their goals to bring about positive changes to their thoughts, feelings and behaviour in a safe, relaxing and comfortable environment.
I specialise in helping people with a wide range of issues including:
- Stress Management
- Low self esteem
- All manner of fears and phobias
- panic attacks
- public speaking
- Sports performance
- Smoking Cessation
- Weight Management
- and many more.
When you are thinking about visiting a hypnotherapy or IEMT Practitioner, it is important to know a little about them. Make sure you are happy they are the right person for you and take your time to find out about their background and training.
I am a qualified Registered Hypnotherapy and IEMT Practitioner DPH, DNLP, GHR Reg, GHSC, GQHP, CNHC Reg, Cert.Hyp CS and a member of the National Hypnotherapy Society (NHS).
As a member of the GHR, GHSC, NHS, I and the IEMT Association. I adhere to their ethical standards for the delivery of a safe, confidential and professional level of service that is in the best interest of my clients.
I have worked as a senior manager in the National Health Service (NHS) for over 30 years and the experience I gained here assists me in my work with clients to help them achieve what they really desire. My personal experiences of hypnosis and hypnotherapy led me to develop my career, train as a therapist and develop my practice. My practice is in Chesterfield and is a relaxed, comfortable room with plenty of parking.
If you are looking for an uncomplicated, confidential, practical approach to help you manage a problem that is getting in the way of your life I look forward to helping you.

The General Hypnotherapy Register
Hypnotherapists may become members of the General Hypnotherapy Register if they satisfy certain criteria with regard to both training and ongoing requirements as determined from time to time by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC).
Members are either registered at Practitioner status (which confirms that the GHR acknowledges their qualification to practice), or Affiliate status. Although Affiliate level registrants will have completed a sufficient number of training hours to equip them to commence seeing clients on a limited basis, the GHR does not acknowledge them to have yet been trained to full practitioner level.
All GHR Registered Practitioners are required to accept the published Code of Ethics and Complaints & Disciplinary Procedure.
National Hypnotherapy Society
The National Hypnotherapy Society is a Learned Society whose primary purpose is the advancement of the knowledge of hypnotherapy and the fostering of professional hypnotherapy expertise through training, accreditation and continued professional development of their members. The Society seeks to contribute to public wellbeing both through the use of hypnotherapy and by ensuring that hypnotherapists are safe, competent and ethical in practice.

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.
