About me

I believe that everyone should be able to be their authentic self (who they really are). Do you want to feel more confident, calm, happy in control of your life and destiny, making decisions based on what you desire not what you fear. My approach is totally focussed on what matters to you supporting you to set and achieve your goals through listening, planning and using therapy to support change. I use a range of methods and tools depending on your specific needs which include Hypnotherapy, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), Emotion Freedom Technique (EFT), Core Transformation, Past Regression, Future Pacing, Counselling and Coaching.

I am an experienced therapist who retired after 40 years as a Registered Nurse and 35 years as a Registered Midwife in 2021 to focus on helping others through therapy. One of my specialist areas is the support of couples and families who have a fear of birth either due to a traumatic experience or an unknown reason. An important part of this is listening and validating how you are feeling, clarifying what happened, supporting healing and change through therapy, planning for future experiences. 

Traumatised parents have shared with me that they feel they have lost confidence in who they are, what they are able to do and achieve, who they are, suffer relationship issues, are unable to enjoy their child some unable to celebrate their child’s birthday.  Having the number of children you would like is an important decision and shouldn’t be driven only by fear. Staff who have been involved in the care of someone who has an emergency or a poor outcome are another group who I have supported and helped through therapy to enable them to heal and return to their professional role of healthcare feeling confident and able. 

Another expertise of mine is with animals. I know personally how you can lose your confidence especially following an incident or accident where as an owner you are left traumatised, anxious and fearful of it happening again. Emotionally healing through therapy can break that vicious cycle of the animals picking up on their owners stress causing them to react.    

If you are not sure if therapy is for you don't worry contact me for a free 30 minute consultation for a chat to find out more and you decide.

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.
