Having spent my working life so far within both small and corporate companies, coupled with my own life experience, I have become increasingly aware of the stresses and challenges facing women today. I have a degree in business and am the proud mum of two young children, I also hold a diploma in Hypnotherapy and love helping to empower women in leading an anxiety free life whilst tackling stressful situations with ease.
I decided to study Hypnotherapy having experienced first hand how life changing it can be and how the skills learnt can be applied to a wide variety of situations. The skill is completely transferable which was something that inspired me to develop and become a hypnotherapist to enable me to pass this ability onto others. Self hypnosis is a skill that anyone can learn and once taught it can be applied independently whenever and wherever the client wishes.
I specialise in anxiety, phobias, childbirth, pain management and weight loss but Hypnotherapy can help in a wide range of areas, for example confidence, public speaking, sports performance and one of my clients solved a life long issue of being unable to get to work on time!
I am professional and passionate about what I do, and like to make the therapy an uplifting process with great back up support. My approach is intuitive but not assuming. I am based near Saltash and see clients both face to face and via Skype which enables clients from all over the world to change their lives for the better.
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. I have 8 years of experience helping a wide variety of clients and over time have developed a name for being a specialist in pain management, phobias, anxiety and weightloss.
I am also a certified HypnoBirthing Practitioner with the Mongan Method and provide classes for individuals and groups.
