I am a qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor and hypnotherapist and offer a caring, supportive non-judgemental approach to helping clients to work through any issues or worries in a confidential safe environment. I have experience of working in private practice and at Mind and Women’s Aid and have worked with clients with a number of issues, including anxiety and stress, depression, trauma, grief and loss, low self-esteem, fears and phobias, weight management (including virtual gastric band) and smoking cessation.
I am trained in an integrative approach to therapy which enables me to use different models of therapy as appropriate for you.
The integrative approach includes the following models:
• Person-Centred Counselling
• Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
• Psychodynamic Therapy
• Transactional Analysis
Having gained many years of experience in business I have developed a good understanding of the stress associated with the modern day workplace and the effects this can have on your mental health and will be able to help you deal with the challenges you face at work.
I have a deep belief in the benefits of hypnotherapy which instils a deep sense of relaxation and enables me to use the power of positive suggestion to help you make changes to your behaviour, thoughts and feelings.
I am an accredited member of the National Counselling Society and I am registered with the National Hypnotherapy Society and as such abide by their Code of Ethics. I am a Registered Hypnotherapist with the General Hypnotherapy Register. I receive regular supervision and take my continuous professional development very seriously.

The General Hypnotherapy Register
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.
National Hypnotherapy Society
The National Hypnotherapy Society is a Learned Society whose primary purpose is the advancement of the knowledge of hypnotherapy and the fostering of professional hypnotherapy expertise through training, accreditation and continued professional development of their members. The Society seeks to contribute to public wellbeing both through the use of hypnotherapy and by ensuring that hypnotherapists are safe, competent and ethical in practice.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

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.
Individual Sessions £45.00 (60 minutes)
Extended Sessions £60.00 (90 minutes)
Smoking cessation £150 (3-hour session). A £75 deposit will be required in advance of the session and paid at the time of booking. A free one hour booster is offered if required within 3 months of first session.
