About me

...and more importantly!  About you:

Is your mind going around in circles?  Do you worry endlessly about things? Are you feeling pain from events or treatment by others that was beyond your control or even within your control?  Do you react to things in ways you're not happy with?  Maybe you just have an irrational phobia?

Relax, you're human.

You're the product of the pain and the traumas of your past. These get buried in your subconscious and try to protect you but often just hinder and hold you back.

These subconscious reactions can be released or reprogrammed.

How would you like to be, think and feel?  Now ask yourself: what is stopping you?

Hypnotherapy is amazing.  Not only does anxiety lift, and confidence return, but you may find yourself becoming generally calmer, and even more compassionate!  This seems to be a curious side-effect.

It also feels amazing: "Wow, that's the most relaxed I've ever felt" - is a common comment. I've also heard "It feels as if a weight has lifted off me".

I am a qualified Hypnotherapist, also trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) who can help you with a range of issues.
It is a privilege to help people overcome the hurdles that they meet in life.

What I can help with?

  • Helping you find what is really important to you and honing in on your potential.
  • Setting you on the path of finding inner peace.
  • Helping you realise that you are an amazing soul and that life's challenges and pain have been strengthening you.

"Even a Lotus flower needs muck to grow" (Thich Nhat Hanh)

I can also help with:

  • Anxiety
  • Bereavement pain
  • Emotional Issues
  • Exams
  • IBS
  • Job Interview nerves
  • Panic Attacks
  • Phobias
  • Public Speaking
  • Relaxation
  • Self Esteem
  • Self-Defeating Behaviours
  • Shyness
  • Sleep
  • Smoking cessation
  • Stress.

Hypnotherapy also teaches you how to meditate.   Neuroscientist Sara Lazar's research into meditation shows how it can actually change the size of the amygdala and hypnothalamus regions in our brain thereby making us physically less capable of stress and physically more capable of focussed attention.

..and with hypnosis you don't have to be an experienced meditator to achieve similar levels of deep relaxation.

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


Therapies offered

  • Hypnoanalysis/Analytical hypnotherapy
  • Past life regression

Additional information

Free Initial 30 minute consultation
Please ask about treatment plans:
Smoking Cessation: £120 for a 2 hour session.

Like meditation, hypnotherapy is cumulative, so I prefer to just offer treatment plans of 4 or 6 sessions.  These work out at £50 a session.

You may come due to a phobia,  or anxiety,  but it is common to gain so much more through inner peace and self esteem.


During the lock-down, face to face appointments are still available as are on-line appointments  via Zoom or Skype.  Please just contact me to arrange.
