About me

Can you imagine,what a difference it would make in your life if you could deal with that one thing that you're unhappy about with yourself, but outside of your control?

Maybe you have tried to make changes before, but for whatever reason have been unable to find a lasting solution to your problem. You are not alone. I have been working with clients like you who are feeling like they don't recognise their lives or themselves any more, or who feel that they have run out of choices, to take back control of their life.

Whether you want to quit smoking with Hypnosis; end your weight struggle and learn to love your body with Weight Coaching or Weight loss by Hypnosis; improve personal relationships; overcome fears, phobias, anxiety and reduce stress; or enhance all areas of your life, I offer a combination of Professional Advanced Hypnosis, Cognitive Behavioural Life Coaching, Working with Children and Weight Management Programs that help you to overcome and resolve unwanted issues, so you can achieve the changes you previously thought were impossible.

So, whether you want to deal with an unwanted habit or behaviour, to gain relief from a specific emotional issue, or to simply have more self-confidence to make those all important changes you’ve been longing to make, we really can help achieve your goals!

Training, qualifications & experience

My history and qualifications as a CLinical psychotherapist : I have a BSc (Hons) Degree in Clinical Advanced Hypnosis, and I have completed the first ever scientifically-controlled study in Hypnotic Gastric-Band which is in the process of being published.

Completed 3 years training at Farnborough & Guildford College in Counselling and have studied Psychology & Body Language. Also a graduate of Oxford university with a Masters in cognitive behaviour therapy

After finishing my degree I wanted to offer a safe professional place to see my clients and opened the Therapy Lounge in Fleet High Street; as it has grown, so have my areas of work.

It's always important to continue learning in the field of any therapy that we practise in, and for myself doing advanced studies in counselling & Psychotherapy at Reading university.   Then completing a Masters at Oxbridge in cognitive behaviour therapy where they are a known centre of excellence (world wide) and leading in published research within this Therapy area. All of this training and experience and allow me as a clinical Psychotherapist to combine different therapies if necessary to achieve the best outcome for my patients.

I have years of experience and can therefore offer a vast range of skills, techniques and important life experience that provides an outstanding quality of personal service that each client deserves. The quality of any therapy is very important to me and I follow a strict code of ethics set by the GHR & CPCAB.
