About me

Practicing clinical hypnosis since 1999, I specialise in stress management (e.g. reducing anxiety and panic attacks), anger management, smoking cessation, phobis (e.g. fear of flying) relationship issues, women's mental health (issues related to polycystic ovary syndrome) and men's mental health.

Treatment is conducted in a safe, friendly and confidential environment. After your free initial consultation, in which we talk about how best to help with your issue, you can decide whether to go ahead with the treatment plan, usually only one or a few sessions on a weekly basis are required to achieve lasting successful results.

I am a member of the British Psychological Society and the British Society of Clinical & Academic Hypnosis. Besides my clinical work I am also an honorary lecturer in Psychology at University College London (UCL).

I have a PhD in Psychology, am a Chartered Psychologist, an Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society, and have published around 60 papers in peer-reviewed scientific journals on topics in psychology (mostly clinical psychology and health psychology).

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.

Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with

Specialist knowledge of men's mental health.
