About me

Hypnotherapy changes lives and will change yours!

Just imagine having the most wonderful relaxing experience, feeling in total control and comfortable with your surroundings. Hypnotherapy will allow you to experience this wonderful inner focus, just like daydreaming, and at the same time make positive change

I have always had a fascination with the power of the mind and how beneficial a positive mindset is within your health. After successfully using Health and Complimentary Therapies on my clients for the last 30 years, specialising on pain management and harmonising the mind/ body connection I undertook an extensive training in Hypnotherapy and Solution Focused Psychotherapy. Since then my practice has thrived and I have been able to successfully help all my clients unnecessary emotional and physical trauma.

As a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist I use practical, modern, and well researched strategies to help people make significant, positive changes in their lives in a relatively short period of time.

With Solution Focused Hypnotherapy, we look at what the client wants to achieve( the solution ) rather than at whatever prompted them to make an appointment( the problem).

My approach focuses on the present and future and not on the past. I will ask my client to consider the preferred future, for instance, what would be better if the problem had improved? What would have changed? This enables the clients possible solutions to become more obvious and will give you a goal to work towards.I have used self hypnosis for the past 30 years personally and work with individuals, couples and groups. I have also worked as a teacher and trainer so you will find me relaxed and easy to talk to being non-judgemental and my wish is to empower you to take back that control through change.

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.

Further information


I have never had such a comfortable flight, felt really calm from beginning to end! Although, I don't want to admit it I enjoyed the experience! ( fear of flying )

Work was getting me so anxious, I started to wake up with palpitations and very stressed about going in to work! I just one session I managed to turn it all around, I couldn't believe how calm I felt and the palpitations stopped!
Ps I quickly realised that the job was not the right one and now have a new job and I am much happier.

Just in one session and I have stopped panicking about my school coursework for my GCSE's. Even my teachers have noticed the difference in me. I am able to concentrate
and focus on my learning without putting myself under pressure to achieve.

I am nearly off my antidepressants- only a half a tablet every other day!! The way you understood and explained why I was so low helped me big time! I feel much more positive now compared to how I felt, renewed energy and getting on with the things I have been wanting to do for ages! Thank you

When Jane suggested to me to have some hypnotherapy to help me recover from my insecurities and sadness through my marriage breakdown, I have to say I was sceptical. In one session I started to feel normal again and my friends began to notice the new me! Since then I have had one more session which again gave me amazing results. I would recommend hypnotherapy to everyone no matter what they are trying to overcome.

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.
