About me

I am a qualified and experienced Clinical Hypnotherapist and I work with clients both in person and online, as this gives the flexibility to work with people anywhere in the UK and internationally.

You are probably reading this page because you are looking for help to improve your life, or looking for help for someone you care about.

Therapy is an opportunity for you to be heard and really listened to. Some people are going through a time of low mood or life issues when they search for help, and others just feel they need space for them to work through their feelings and emotions. Mental and physical health are hand in hand, and you may be noticing the feelings in your physical body when you are experiencing different emotions.

Many physical issues are a result of unresolved emotional issues from the past or due to unhealthy emotions about yourself; so I believe the inner work is so very important to have the best life possible. Remember, nothing is permanent, and you do not have to hang on to anything you do not wish to. I am talking here about anxiety, childhood traumas, past events, phobias, unhelpful habits, long term stress...and the list goes on. We were not born with any of the above, and anything that can be learnt, can also be unlearnt. It is never too late to make a change.

Often my clients have been feeling anxious, low, unhappy, fearful or out of control for a long time, until they discover that they hold the power to change their lives with a little help from me to support, listen and guide them. I am an Integrative therapist using clinical hypnotherapy, solution focused hypnotherapy and talking therapy/psychotherapy approaches to help you in your journey. I have a friendly informal approach and many of my clients say they feel like they have known me for ages (even after just 1 session). I believe that through being our true authentic selves, we are able to connect, build a therapeutic rapport and work together in your journey.

I run a welcoming and confidential service, and I really enjoy helping my clients make the changes that they want to achieve. It was within my previous career of being a Registered Nurse that led me into further studying to help people further with their feelings and emotions. The way you feel about yourself and the confidence you have in yourself, directly impacts each area of your life. Think about it now, are there things you want to explore in your life but you feel held back in some way? Is there a new career or business change you are thinking about, but your confidence and fears are getting in the way? Are you living your life to the way you want it, or someone else's expectations of you? Is there a time in your life that is holding you back in living how you want to live now, in the here and today?

In our first session together we can get to know one another, and you can share with me what it is you want to achieve. Often after just the first session clients tell me they begin to feel lighter and feel more in control of their life. Change is not always as quick as you would like, but by taking the first step you will have already started on your journey. Remember, this inner work is a true investment in yourself and your future.

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

Children's Therapy- phobias, social anxiety and habits.

Wedding Anxiety- nervous brides/grooms/wedding speeches.

Fertility- Your mind can have a very powerful influence on the whole process of conception.
