I am a hypnotherapist and counsellor. I work with adults experiencing a wide range of issues including: anxiety, depression, stress, bullying, loss and bereavement, separation and divorce, redundancy and relationship issues, low self esteem and confidence.
Clients have found hypnotherapy useful for problems such as: weight management, stopping smoking, pain management, unwanted habits and phobias.

British Society of Clinical Hypnosis
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.

Areas of hypnotherapy I deal with
Information about health conditions (*)
Nutritional therapy can help 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 nutritional therapy or making any major changes to your diet or lifestyle.
Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with
Please call me to discuss any other issues that I might be able to help with.
My charges are £50 per hour. There is a range of fees for employers and organisations available on request.
The first session allows us to make an assessment of your problems or issues. Hypnotherapy is often short taking between three and six sessions.
I also work as a Transactional Analysis counsellor and can offer counselling where that is appropriate.
