About me

I am a full time Clinical Hypnotherapist since qualifying in 1996 and provide caring, professional and personalised therapy. Please phone me for a complementary telephone consultation on 241 0413 to discuss your needs. Effective hypnotherapy requires feeling at ease and confident with your therapist and this free phone consultation will enable this to be established and also provide the opportunity to answer all your questions.

Following a 20 year career in personal development training, nutrition and fitness and having seen my husband use hypnotherapy to overcome and manage a life threatening condition, and myself to overcome a crippling fear of public speaking I decided to become a hypnotherapist and combine my skills to help others achieve their goals. Since qualifying with the LCCH, the leading medical and dental hypnotherapy training authority, I have had the pleasure and immense satisfaction of helping 1000’s of clients to enhance their lives and make positive changes. My areas of speciality are:-

Overcoming Anxiety/Stress including panic attacks and phobias - Weight Loss - Stopping Smoking (generally in just one appointment) - Confidence and Performance Enhancement including exams, sports performance & competitions (including overcoming Yips) & public speaking - Alcohol Moderation and Cessation - Overcoming Insomnia - IBS - Migraines & more.

Combining Clinical Hypnotherapy, CBT and NLP techniques I provide mainly solution focussed therapy to help my clients "draw a line on the past, stop worrying about the future and live in the present".   All my clients receive audio recordings of their personalised therapy for use at home to enhance their therapy and reduce the number of appointments required as well as provide maintenance programmes where necessary.

I am one of the longest established and most experienced clinical hypnotherapists in Trafford and Greater Manchester and a member of the British Society for Clinical Hypnotherapy and registered with the CNHC and regularly attend on-going training to enhance my skills and offer the best therapy to my clients.

Having owned my own weight management centre and gym, I am able to combine my nutritional and fitness background with hypnotherapy to create individual weight loss programmes for clients, both male and female, to help them not just lose weight but, more importantly, maintain their weight loss.  I am also trained in the Virtual Gastric Band and have developed specific hypnotherapy for addictions & cravings for chocolate, sweet foods, alcohol, crisps & more as well as therapy for staying on track with Lipotrim, Literlife, Cambridge and other very low calorie diet programmes.

Many of my clients are referred from medical and dental professionals and I work from my private practice, Quest Therapy, which is just 3 minutes off the M60 and the Trafford Centre and less than 15 minutes from the City Centre.

Daytime and Evening appointments are available.
