About me

Working with general problems, stress, anxiety, fears, and phobias but specialising in emotional support for cancer patients and their families, from diagnosis to wellness and beyond.

Since I started to practice therapies in 1998, I have gained a great deal of experience helping clients to resolve the emotional fall-out from a wide range of physical and emotional conditions, including:

  • Anxiety
  • Cancer
  • Terminal illnesses
  • Bereavement
  • Other chronic conditions
  • Fears & phobias
  • Stress

I am passionate about providing emotional support if you’ve been diagnosed with cancer, and fully understand how distressing it can be to have hospital treatment then to be discharged without any access to emotional support. I have worked in cancer care for a long time and have witnessed the emotional issues that you may have experienced including:

  • Identity issues for women post mastectomy
  • Self-hatred and disgust following a mastectomy/stoma
  • Loss of self-esteem and libido
  • Needle phobia
  • Claustrophobia

Cancer charities are facing constant cutbacks – you may have had to wait months for emotional support, or there may be lack of availability depending on where you live. The provision of post treatment emotional support often leaves a lot to be desired.

My aim is to provide rapid relief from fears, worries and anxieties by offering a caring and positive treatment approach. You don’t need to suffer unnecessarily. Modern day therapies are able to bring fast, long-lasting relief from issues that arise from cancer treatment.

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.

Daytime, evening and weekend appointments are available. Although the practice is based in Essex, appointments are available online worldwide via Skype and Facetime.
