About me

I offer professional expertise in a warm and relaxed setting, matching a range of psychotherapy and hypnotherapy techniques and approaches to you, your background, your personality, your needs.  This means that your therapy is always tailored to you and is therefore much more likely to bring you the results you seek.

I specialise in helping people to overcome unwanted anxiety and phobias, so that they can live life free from irrational fears. Working with you, my aim is to help you understand how these fears have developed and how you can use the power of hypnosis and self hypnosis to literally "CHANGE YOUR MIND", change the way you think and change your life for the better.

I also offer hypnotherapy combined with counselling and coaching techniques to help with

  • Career development
  • Change and loss
  • Habits and addiction
  • Pain management
  • Performance enhancement
  • Personal growth
  • Relationship issues
  • Sleep problems
  • Stopping smoking
  • Weight management

No list is ever complete – please contact me if your particular need is not listed here and you would like to discuss how I could help.

Appointments times can be arranged to suit you.

        Further information

        Both hypnotherapy and psychotherapy have long traditions of helping people overcome issues and take control of their lives. Yet, both also have their limitations. A common criticism for psychotherapy is that it falls into “paralysis by analysis”, where years of expensive therapy result in slow progress.

        Hypnotherapy on the other hand has often brought impressive changes in very short time, but the generic “scripts” used constitute an “one-size-fits-all” solution. I believe that, through the use of bespoke, personalised hypno-psychotherapy, I can offer the best of both worlds.

        Quite literally, hypno-psychotherapy can allow you to “change your mind” so that you can change habits and behaviours that trouble you, reduce stress and anxiety and become the person that you truly want to be.
