About me

Experienced, friendly, professional and confidential help available for matters relating to the mind.

In 2013 I moved back to the North East after 25 years in London.  I'd had a full-time Hypnotherapy practice in Covent Garden since September 2011.

I find that I get a lot of clients seeking help with weight loss.  I have struggled with my own weight since my late teens and became a hypnotherapist after receiving hypnotherapy for weight loss myself.  The change was remarkable.  My whole approach to food and how I felt about myself changed. I still have some weight I'd like to lose, but my experiences mean that I am non-judgemental and I DO UNDERSTAND.

If you have ever struggled to shift the weight, knowing what you SHOULD be doing, but somehow just can't seem to do it, or need to prevent yourself self-sabotaging or emotional eating, get in touch.

I offer a blend of hypnotherapy, psychotherapy and coaching - and together we can work out the best program for you.

NEW - I am pleased to announce that I have qualified as a Grief and Bereavement Counselor with Stonebridge College, passing with Distinction.
I also specialise in treating pet grief and anxiety.

Training, qualifications & experience

I gained my Hypnotherapy Diploma at the Essex Institute of Clinical Hypnosis.
I have had additional training for Sports Hypnotherapy, Hypnotherapy for Children and Hypno-Club Group Hypnosis. (Based on 7 Paths Hypnosis.)
I specialise in treating Anxiety.

My professional associations are The Association for Professional Hypnosis and Psychotherapy and I am listed on The National Register of Psychotherapists and Counsellors. 

I am a BWRT (Brain Working Recursive Therapy) Practitioner. BWRT is an amazing form of psychotherapy that requires NO TRANCE.
The client doesn't need to reveal their private thoughts - as long as they can explain what they want to change. Many issues can be sorted out in one or two sessions.

I am a founder member of the British BrainWorking Research Society,

I am a registered Hypno-Band Practitioner.  This is the original virtual gastric band therapy, as used in TV's Embarrassing Bodies program.  It can be difficult to become a Hypno-Band Practitioner, as the therapist must be registered with The Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council and only a few licenses are granted each year.

I am one of the first Placebo Diet Coaches in the United Kingdom.  This is a program that you can do online with personal coaching sessions from me via Skype or similar, or you can attend one of my workshops or taster sessions.  It has all the latest nutritional advice, as well as videos that explain how to collapse a craving and overcome old habits, self-sabotaging and emotional eating. 

I am an OldPain2Go Practitioner.  OldPain2Go is a unique way to help clients that have pain that has been diagnosed by a medical practitioner as pain that is no longer serving a purpose (for instance, all that can be done for them is to be prescribed pain killers).  For more information and video testimonials:  https://oldpain2go.com/client-testimonials

My CNHC Registration Number is 000099-H11.
The Complimentary and Natural Healthcare Council was set up with government support to protect the public and make sure that the highest standards are maintained.
This is not just another register that therapists can pay to be on. Rigorous checks are made to see that training is up to date and of a high standard, that the therapists are insured and comply with the Data Protection Act.

If you look on my Facebook page, Saltburn Hypnotherapy, you can see photos of some of my client's successes and read about their experiences.

I have appeared on BBC Radio Tees and Zetland FM on programs discussing fears and phobias, anxiety and weight loss.

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

Please note, sleep disorders, pain management and some other issues require written permission from your Doctor before therapy can commence.

Any clients who are under 16 years old must be accompanied by a parent or guardian, or if working remotely have them in the the room with you.

I help many young people with stress, exam nerves and school issues, and probably an equal number of teachers with their own stress and anxiety problems.
Over the last year I have seen several young gymnasts and tumblers with mental blocks that had been holding them back. Word has spread and I see many young people who have needed help to improve their performance in lots of different areas.

My latest specialism is helping clients with Pet Grief. Sometimes it presents as a different issue such as anxiety, over eating or drinking, or guilt.  If you need to say your most Loving Goodbye to a pet, no matter when they died, get in touch.

A have helped a golfer, who is now part of the England team, go from being fairly successful at a local level to playing amongst the golfing elite.
When he first came to see me, a many golf seasons ago, his ambition was to get into the top 10 of the Waterford Trophy Competition. 
He came first.
The following year he won the the Kent Amateur Championship at Bearsted Golf Club.

A client came to me for a Hypno-Band Therapy.  After losing several stone she reinvented herself completely and joined a Burlesque dancing club in her spare time.  She has performed at Madam Jo Jo's in London's Soho and has sent me several other clients.  She has also given me permission to share her success.  You can find photos of her on my Face Book page as well.

I have helped over 150 clients with their weight by using Hypno-Band therapy.

The Smoking Cessation sessions last and hour and a half.  If you are ready and committed to stop one easy session is all it will take.  There are lots of feedback comments from my Ex-Smoker Clients on the Saltburn Hypnotherapy Facebook page.

I am a certified practitioner of the new Brain Working Recursive Therapy - a new therapy that can provide quick results for many issues. 
I have been personally trained by the founder, Terence Watts.

This time next year don't look back and wish you had done something now.
