About me

I am a qualified and experienced Integrative Therapist covering Stansted, Bishop's Stortford and surrounding area.  My aim is to ensure that you feel understood and supported in a safe environment, enabling you to understand the present, explore and resolve the past and make positive changes for the future. 

I run a full time practice from Forest Hall Therapy Centre, which is situated in a secluded courtyard in a semi-rural location just outside Stansted in Essex.  There is plenty of free parking. 

I am also a qualified Supervisor and hold one to one and group sessions for qualified and trainee Hypnotherapists.

At the centre we also run Peer Support Group sessions on a monthly basis, again for trainee and qualified Hypnotherapists.  This includes inviting guest speakers from time to time to run workshops on specific topics.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a Diploma in Hypnotherapy & Counselling Skills (Dip Hyp CS) and an Integrated Advanced Professional Diploma in Counselling & Psychotherapy (Ad.Dip CP), both of which are accredited by The Royal College of Nursing.

I am a member of the General Hypnotherapy Register, the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) and the National Counselling Society.  I work within the Code of Ethics and professional standards of these bodies.  I am in regular supervision and hold professional civil liability insurance.

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 also work with grief and loss

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.
