''Getting help doesn't mean that you are weak - It means that you're strong enough to admit that you are tired of struggling'' - Manpreet Kaur
Are you tired of struggling with anxiety, depression, grief, fears, phobias or trauma? Are those feelings at the point where they significantly impact your enjoyment of life and all the potential it has to offer?
I am a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist and a former Residential Social Worker, Nurse and Lecturer in Early Years Education, Health and Social Care.
I have over 35 years experience working within the Health, Social Care and Education sectors in hospitals, children's homes, prisons and colleges across the U.K. As a result, I am privileged to have worked and supported people from all walks of life and of various ages.
Solution Focused Therapy is a goal orientated, future focused therapy that combines hypnotherapy with psychotherapy (‘talking therapy’).
Using gentle and relaxing hypnotherapy, I can help you discover and utilise your existing inner strengths and resources and guide you toward setting positive goals which will create positive changes in your life.
Together we will focus on and work toward what you want to achieve rather than dwell unduly on past traumas in order to find a solution to what is troubling you.
Solution Focused Therapy is typically fast and effective, with most clients being where they want to be within relatively few sessions. So if you are tired of struggling and ready to take that next step, contact me and arrange an initial consultation.
Your initial consultation is free with no obligation to commit to further sessions. It is a friendly and informal chat which gives you and I an opportunity to discuss the issue for which you are seeking help and for you to ask any questions you might have about Soloution Focused Therapy.
My services are now fully delivered online via Zoom or FaceTime meaning you can access the help you need from anywhere without the fuss and expense of travelling.
I also offer private HypnoBirthing sessions for expectant individuals and couples. Sessions can be delivered in your home (for those in the Lincolnshire area) or via Zoom.

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.
