Anxiety Specialist

About me

Are you smiling but no one notices it doesn’t reach your eyes and you can’t feel that smile in your heart? They don't see the frown lines on your forehead that all your effort is going into the supposedly simple act of lifting the corners of your mouth has created? Are you exhausted trying to pretend so that no one knows that you feel empty inside?  A few years ago that was me. I felt sad that people couldn’t see it but it wasn’t their fault, it was me trying to hide my feelings, I felt this was the role I had to play. Hypnotherapy helped me find my smile again. No more emptiness or pretending. The incredible transformative experience inspired me to retrain as a hypnotherapist so I too could positively help free clients from these feelings

Hypnotherapy can help you be free of anxiety, stress, phobias, weight issues and so much more in a gentle and safe environment achieving real positive change in my beautiful holistic therapy practice.

Anxiety and stress has now become such a hugely toxic part of so many lives. It can subconsciously underpin many other issues too, such as why can’t I lose weight/quit smoking? Why do I feel like something is holding me back? Why aren’t I achieving my goals? I just want to sleep!

I also facilitate Past Life Regressions which are a gentle form of hypnotherapy taking the client back to memories of past lives. This can help you understand why you may be drawn to certain places, people, or vocations.  Seeking karmic resolution as well as uncovering the message you needed to learn in that life that will help you through your issues in this one.

I feel blessed that I can share the peace, healing and change that hypnotherapy brings. We work together to empower you to cut negative ties of old unwanted thoughts and behaviours once and for all, so you can live in the moment and walk positively into the future.

Please contact me for a free, confidential phone consultation or email for more information.

Member organisations


The General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR)

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.

Wheelchair user access

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.
