About me

I am a Cognitive Hypnotherapist and Motivational Coach, specialising in building confidence, weight issues, dealing with physical & emotional pain, smoking and phobias. My aim is to enable you to develop the skills you need to live the life you want.

Hypnotherapy: Hypnosis (trance) is the natural state when we are relaxed or on 'auto pilot'. The deeply relaxed client is receptive to new ideas on how to deal with past difficulties and make changes that will ensure a different future. You remain in control at all times

Coaching: Provides an opportunity to receive expert help on challenges you face in order to see things more clearly, set up realistic plans  and goals that will create significant changes

Hypnotherapy & Coaching
, separately, or together, can help with any difficulty

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

Coping with illness, anxiety and pain from the moment of diagnosis, through your treatment and how you regroup your resources afterwards, so that you can live again!


Additional information

I charge £80 for a 60 minutes session, with concessions for older people, students and those receiving benefits.

When I work

Weekend days 7.30 - 7.30

Further information

Clients receive my relaxation CD at their first session and a personal download that addresses their particular issues in hypnotic language to play between sessions

Everyone is different so it is difficult to say how many sessions your issue would need until I meet you.
Something like smoking (if you REALLY want to give up!) can take 1 or 2 sessions; deep-rooted anxiety due to past causes can take longer. However, neither hypnotherapy or coaching are intended to be a long-term practice. They are designed to give you empowering skills and techniques that address your individual needs that will always be yours to use.

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.
