About me

Since 1996 I have been offering caring & confidential solution focussed hypnotherapy and stress management. Please phone me for a complementary and obligation free telephone consultation on 07825634405 to discuss your needs. Effective hypnotherapy requires feeling at ease and confident with your therapist and this free phone consultation will offer the opportunity for this to be established and also provide the opportunity for me to answer any questions or concerns you may have.

Following a 20 year career in personal development training, weight loss, nutrition and fitness and having seen my husband use hypnotherapy to manage and ovecome a life threatening condition, and using it myself to overcome a crippling phobia of public speaking and also Irritable Bowel Syndrome, I felt compelled 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 helped 1000’s of clients to enhance their lives and make positive changes in so many areas:-

- Anxiety, Stress, Fears & Phobias - needles, dental and other medical, flying, lifts, animals, birds and all other phobias
- Stopping smoking, Alcohol cessation or moderation & help with other habits/addictions
- Weight Loss & Management including the Virtual Gastric Band
- Confidence Enhancement for Exams, Public Speaking, Driving, Sports & more
- Study motivation, enhance Memory, Retention & Recall 
- Insomnia, IBS, Migraines, Menopause, Hypnobirthing, Fertility

Combining  Hypnotherapy, CBT and NLP techniques I provide mainly solution focussed hypnotherapy to help my clients "draw a line on the past, stop worrying about the future and live in the present" to enable them to achieve their goals.  All my clients receive audio recordings of their therapy as repetition is proven to enhance results 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  Greater Manchester and a member of the British Society for Clinical Hypnotherapy and registered with the CNHC and engage in 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 experience and knowledge with hypnotherapy to create individual weight loss programmes to help my clients to lose weight and maintain their weight loss.  I am also trained in the Virtual Gastric Band and have developed specific hypnotherapy for overcoming addictions & cravings for chocolate, sweet foods and alcohol.

Many of my clients are referred from medical and dental professionals and I work from my private practice which is just 3 minutes off the M60 and the Trafford Centre and less than 15 minutes from the City Centre.  I also offer online therapy in the comfort of your own home or office by Zoom.

Daytime and Evening appointments are available.
