About me

As an experienced, energetic and enthusiastic clinical hypnotist and hypnotherapy practitioner with strong hypnotherapy and NLP skills (Master Practitioner), I work with clients using behavioural (habit change), cognitive (restructuring limiting beliefs) and analytical (insight and unconscious change) approaches to develop and support the changes you seek.

I have specialist interests in both pain management and anxiety.  I have advanced qualifications and experience in these fields and work with a wide range of client’s goals including performance enhancement (such as sport, public speaking), change-work (such as disordered eating, addictions, anger, phobias, pain, stress, smoking, PTSD and trauma) and personal development (such as anxiety, confidence).

In addition to my therapy practice, I co-own two hypnotherapy training companies and teach hypnotherapy (www.hypnotc.com and www.hypnosis-courses.com).

Keen to help to develop the hypnotherapy profession, I advise organisations and institutions, such as the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council, on matters relating to hypnotherapy theory, practice and professionalism and am Chair of the British Society of Clinical Hypnosis. I also present at a number of conferences each year, nationally and internationally on relevant hypnotherapy topics.

Finally, I thoroughly enjoying writing books, and my works can be found on Amazon, including -

Member organisations


British Society of Clinical Hypnosis (BSCH)

The British Society of Clinical Hypnosis (BSCH) is a national professional body whose aim is to promote and assure high standards in the practice of hypnotherapy.

There are various types of membership of BSCH, including associate members, full members, diplomats and fellows.

Registration demands good quality training, ethical practice and adherence to a code of conduct.


The General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR)

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.


Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC)

The CNHC encompasses many types of alternative therapy, including hypnotherapy.

In order to be admitted to the register a practitioner must have studied to the National Occupational Standards for that profession/discipline, or have reached the equivalent of the National Occupational Standards through other relevant training or at least three years of experience and been assessed by their peers.

A practitioner must also have professional insurance and agree to abide by the CNHC Code of Conduct, Performance and Ethics.

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.
