About me

Anxiety Specialist.

As your therapist/hypnotherapist, I am here to help you improve your life and deal with any challenges that you may face. Whether it is anxiety, a phobia, severe tinnitus, sports performance or, indeed, any aspect of the mind - therapy and hypnotherapy have been shown to help.

My background in Education, Safeguarding and as an Assistant Headteacher means I have dealt for many years with people suffering from a huge range of challenges. First and foremost among these was Anxiety - often drastically affecting attendance and educational outcomes for the young people involved.
