About me

Who am I and who do I work with?

I’m an experienced Clinical Hypnotherapist who gives you the tools to live an inspired, happy life no matter what it throws at you. 


You’re feeling overwhelmed at the thought of an upcoming event or perhaps finding that everyday life is getting you down

You could do with some help to stay focused and in control – to keep those nerves in check, stop you from overwhelm and focused on that calm, bright future ahead

You’d like a fully trained, experienced therapist who loves to work with motivated clients looking to take control and embrace all that life has to offer…

You’re in the right place

Qualifications and Experience

A fully qualified hypnotherapist and member of the International Hypnotherapy Association, I trained with the South West School of Clinical Hypnotherapy and gained both a Certificate in Hypnotherapy and a Diploma (DipHyp) in Clinical Hypnotherapy. I hold qualifications in Mental Health First Aid, Suicide First Aid and Counselling Skills as well as being on a framework to take referrals from mental health charities both online and in person.

What makes me good at what I do?

Firstly, I know how daunting it can be to choose a therapist and how many different choices there are. I don't just work with anyone and I won't tell you I can 'fix' you but testimonials from my clients speak for themselves. I'm a full-time hypnotherapist with a vast range of experience thanks to working within the mental health charity sector.

On a more personal level...

I’m often told that people tell me things they’ve never told anyone. I have a great interest in people and life – what makes you tick? What do you love? Opening people up, finding out what’s deeper, and seeing the magic in them brings me joy.  Seeing a client live life to their full potential is an honour I don't take for granted. 

Appointments - How do they work and how to book in?

I offer online appointments and have limited availability in my therapy room near Saltash, Cornwall.

After an initial chat during which we'll talk about what you'd like to get out of hypnotherapy and ask any questions you may have, if we're a good fit and you're happy to continue we'll set up your first session. Sessions are held on a weekly/fortnightly basis and I can advise on how many you're likely to need during our initial call. 

First Steps - Why not book a free chat to see if we’re a good fit? Just send me a message and I'll send you my scheduler so you can save your spot in my diary. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained with the Southwest School of Clinical Hypnotherapy, a leading and inspiring school with whom I was awarded both a certificate and a diploma in hypnotherapy. After my own experiences of therapy for PTSD and pain management, my priority was finding an in-person course with the best training available.  I have 12 years of experience helping a wide variety of clients and over time have developed a name for being a specialist in pain management, phobias, and anxiety.

I am also a Hypnobirthing Practitioner and provide The Empowered Birth Experience classes for individuals and groups. Having previously taught in Further Education this helps me to ensure the classes are tailored to each couple and delivered to a high standard.

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.
