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).

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
