About me

I practice Cognitive Behavioural Therapy combined with hypnotherapy. Hypnotherapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy are each proven effective psychotherapeutic approaches in their own right. When used together, treatment has been shown to be even more effective and long-lasting than either individual method. My specialist area is anxiety and I have helped many clients to reach an anxiety free life. My approach is:

Future focused, so we don’t spend much time looking back into the past (unless there is a clear reason to do so). We focus on the beliefs, feelings and thoughts which are hindering you in the present. These are hard to identify by yourself as over the years they will have become automatic. Together, we can identify these thoughts, remove them and replace them with something far more positive. This enables change for the better across many areas of your life.

To ensure that you have the skills, the resilience and the tools to change the way that you respond in the future. I want to help you improve your life as quickly as possible, so I ensure that you have helpful work between sessions, such as recordings that you can listen to.

I offer a FREE 15 minute phone consultation where I can get to know more about your issue and let you know how I would work with you to help your specific issue should you choose to go forward and work with me.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy, accredited by the National Council for Hypnotherapy, the General Hypnotherapy Register, the Register for Evidence-Based Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy and approved by the British Psychological Society.

I have a degree in Psychology as well as a counseling  and life coaching qualification.

Member organisations


The General Hypnotherapy Register

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.

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

CBT, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy,

Therapies offered

  • Cognitive hypnotherapy

Sessions are £75 per hour.

Further information

All hypnotherapy is not the same! I recommend ensuring you choose a hypnotherapist trained in cognitive behavioural techniques if you want to maximise the benefit of your session. While hypnotherapy is very powerful, it can provide a temporary fix if the underlying issues are not fully dealt with, which is where the CBT comes in.

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.

Wheelchair user access


I work on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays, and also offer evening and weekend sessions.
