About me


Do you feel …..

Stuck with patterns of thinking and behaviour that don’t work for you anymore?

Different parts of you want different things?

Stuck with a bad habit you want to change but can’t?

Your emotions sometimes overwhelm you or get the better of you?

In conflict with yourself?

Like one person one minute and someone else the next?

Frustrated with not being able to change?

Will power doesn’t work for you?

Patterns in the brain…..

Our brains are made up of many millions of individual patterns, circuits or modules.  Some of these patterns we are born with – we don’t have to learn how to feel hungry we just do. Other patterns are imprinted early in our life, such as the language we speak. Still others we have to learn by application and repetition, such as how to play a musical instrument.

It’s these patterns that produce our ‘behaviours’, the different aspects of our overall personality, and our instinctive reactions.  All these patterns, to an extent, act as ‘mini brains’ and do their own thing.  There’s no one central control post - they kind of talk among themselves and make some kind of agreement about what’s going on in the world and what we should do next. But sometimes they don’t and that can cause us problems – why you sometimes do ‘dumb’ things or seem like you’re two or more different people. Sometimes we can become ‘locked’ into unhelpful patterns  like anxiety, depression or anger. Also these patterns don’t just run on logic or words or we would all be masters of our ‘will power’.

Patterns can be hidden …..

The workings and purpose of many of these patterns is mainly outside of our conscious awareness – they are hidden in our unconscious. They are activated by triggers in our internal and external environment, kick in very fast so we respond automatically before we consciously realise or can control our responses. Which is why we sometimes do the wrong thing even when we know what we should do. Or why being highly motivated and wanting to do the right thing isn’t enough to make us do it.

Re-pattern for success

I offer Hypno-psychotherapy which combines two powerful approaches, solution focused psychotherapy and hypnosis. These are the tools we use to gain insight into the patterns which drive us, to access the patterning brain states with which we can work most effectively and to re-pattern to gain relief from those which are damaging or painful.

The focus is on accessing and creating new patterns and ways of being which develop your own individual strengths and resources.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.


The General Hypnotherapy Register

Hypnotherapists may become members of the General Hypnotherapy Register if they satisfy certain criteria with regard to both training and ongoing requirements as determined from time to time by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC).

Members are either registered at Practitioner status (which confirms that the GHR acknowledges their qualification to practice), or Affiliate status. Although Affiliate level registrants will have completed a sufficient number of training hours to equip them to commence seeing clients on a limited basis, the GHR does not acknowledge them to have yet been trained to full practitioner level.

All GHR Registered Practitioners are required to accept the published Code of Ethics and Complaints & Disciplinary Procedure.


Hypnotherapy Association

The Hypnotherapy Association is a leading independent professional body in Britain representing approved hypnotherapists in active practice. All members agree to follow a code of ethics.

There are a number of different membership categories, e.g. Associate Member, Licentiate Member, and Full member, with the different categories standing for different levels of training and experience.

Hypnotherapy Association is a Registered Member of UKCHO (an umbrella body for the hypnotherapy profession in the United Kingdom).

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. 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.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Wheelchair user access Unspecified
