About me

Hi, I'm a solution focused hypnotherapist, I work with Adults and Children who are suffering with adversity in their life, whether it's through stress, anxiety, loss, trauma, life changing diagnosis and life changing injuries.

My role is to help each person navigate their way through the adversity using a combination of Solution Brief therapy, NLP and Hypnosis with a view to finding the best possible outcome that's right for them, so they can move forward with their life.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained with CPHT and qualified as a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist.

I  also trained with Bristol NLP and qualified as an NLP Master Practitioner

Along side my practice, I professionally speak at conferences and on podcasts for businesses and organisations, host my own podcasts, am a co-host on a Sunday morning breakfast radio show and I work part time for a charity as a peer support development officer, supporting adults with a Learning disability and/or Autism to have a voice. 

I have also worked within a Waldorf Special educational needs school, working with children with challenging behaviour.

Member organisations

The CNHC encompasses many types of alternative therapy, including hypnotherapy.

In order to be admitted to the register a practitioner must have studied to the National Occupational Standards for that profession/discipline, or have reached the equivalent of the National Occupational Standards through other relevant training or at least three years of experience and been assessed by their peers.

A practitioner must also have professional insurance and agree to abide by the CNHC Code of Conduct, Performance and Ethics.

National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH)

The National Council for Hypnotherapy holds one of the largest registers of independent Hypnotherapists in the United Kingdom and strives to maintain the highest standards among its members.

There is an agreed Code of Conduct, an established Complaints & Disciplinary Procedure and all members are obliged to maintain comprehensive Public Liability & Professional Indemnity Insurance, maintain regular CPD (continuing professional development) hours, and attend Supervision when needed.

Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH)

The Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH) was set up to provide information about a modern form of Hypnotherapy and its associated benefits to members of the public. The main aim of the AfSFH is to spread awareness of the benefits of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy. Its secondary aim is to support Hypnotherapists in their businesses by encouraging good practice and self-care.

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Hypnotherapist's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Hypnotherapist to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
