About me

I am a Life Coach and Hypnotherapist working in Poole, Dorset and surrounding areas. I can also provide a service via sykpe, telephone and email (the latter two only for life coaching).

I specialise in working with clients who are experiencing difficulties with stress, anxiety, panic attacks, agoraphobia and related symptoms. I am happy to visit clients at home until they feel confident enough to attend appointments at clinic and this is agreed on a case by case basis.

My practice operates from Oakdale and Sandbanks.

Practice Principles

With a background in nursing my approach is professional and kind and you will always feel very safe. I adhere to strict guidelines in relation to confidentiality and will always discuss and explain all treatments fully with you. On occasions clients who are suffering from anxiety are also very nervous about experiencing hypnosis and in those cases we can proceed with life coaching exercises. I am very much solution focused and client led in approach.

How can Hypnotherapy and/or Life Coaching help you?

  • learn to relax
  • stop having panic attacks
  • stop smoking
  • change unwanted habits
  • manage symptoms of disease such as those associated with IBS
  • manage chronic pain
  • identify areas of life that you wish to make changes in, support your motivation and enhance your goal achievement
  • overcome fears and phobias
  • manage insomnia and improve sleep hygiene
  • and much more

Contact me

Please do contact me to discuss any of the above. Hypnotherapy and Life Coaching are supplementary and are not designed to replace appropriate medical intervention. If you are at all worried about your symptoms or whether these interventions are right for you then please discuss with your GP first.

I am passionate about my work and I thoroughly enjoy supporting people to make positive and lasting changes in their life.

If you are ready to make that change then give me a call.

Areas of hypnotherapy I deal with

* If you have been diagnosed or suspect you may have one of the medical conditions starred above, you should consult your GP for advice, diagnosis and treatment and always inform your health professional before starting any alternative or additional therapies or treatments.


£75.00 for initial consultation up to 90 minutes

£45.00 per hour for subsequent appointments

£120.00 for a 'Stop Smoking' which includes a preliminary telephone consultation

£420.00 for a series of 10 life coaching sessions, paid at first meeting in full and to be used within 6 months from first appointment. Applications for this course will only be accepted from those who show an absolute commitment to participate fully in all exercises

If during any preliminary telephone calls I believe that your needs are best met elsewhere I will redirect you to a more suitable place whether that be GP, psychotherapist or a specialist hypnotherapist for that particular area. You can be sure that I will be thorough, realistic and fully honest with you regarding appropriateness of intervention. Due to this I can offer you a guarantee that you will be pleased with your appointment and should this not be the case a partial refund may be offered.

Home visits incur a travel cost of minimum £20.00 for anything up to one hour return travel (including any stationary waits and parking time), after the first hour the usual £45.00 per hour applies

Further information

If you want to have an appointment with me and genuinely cannot afford to do so then please contact me to discuss as on occasion I can offer reduced price consultations.

I love Hypnosis and Life Coaching and I want as many people as possible to experience both of these as the results really can be life changing.

About me

My personal commitment to keep learning and growing ensures that I keep up to date with treatment and coaching practices. I also thoroughly enjoy learning random things for pleasure and so far have trained in garden design, arboriculture, conservation, wood carving, and much more !

I thoroughly enjoy living where I live and make the most of the wonderful beaches and open spaces that Dorset has to offer. When I am not working I can generally be found walking my dog on one of the local beaches and on hot days we even enjoy a dip to cool off. For those who will benefit life coaching sessions are sometimes carried out whilst walking on the beach and this can be surprisingly beneficial - call me now and give it a go.

I look forward to working with you.

"I was a bit wary at first as I find it hard to trust but Lesley has such a great manner, she really made me feel very safe and at ease. I have learnt how to relax and this has had such a big impact on all of my life, I resumed old hobbies and am so much happier than I was before, I am so grateful for the service that I received" N.H
