About me

Hypnotherapy changed my life many years ago after suffering from panic attacks. I decided to train in order to help others overcome many debilitating issues.

Life is difficult and sometimes it throws us a curve ball whatever the issue is Hypnotherapy can help.

Because everyone is different there isn't a "one size fits all" hypnotherapy.  We are all unique so when we meet I take time to consider your needs and put together a specific plan for you.  I understand that some issues are difficult to talk about so please be re-assured that every clients needs are treated as confidential and having worked with the hearing and visually impaired, the homeless and after volunteering on a crisis line I have a very open mind.

I'm the BAThH Secretary - BAThH is the British Association of Therapeutic Hypnotists and NLP Practitioners - please see our website for videos about Hypnotherapy and how it could help you.

For an honest, open and friendly approach please either call or email me - I would love to hear from you.

Training, qualifications & experience

Hyp. Dip, HDipCT

I went through training over a year, it is extremely important that you visit a qualified Hypnotherapist who also continues with CPD (Continued Professional Development).

Throughout my Hypnotherapy career I have worked with clients with alcohol abuse, anxiety, eating problems and eating disorders, food addiction, gastric band hypnosis, phobias, quitting smoking, cannabis and other drug abuse, solution focused hypnotherapy (helping you reach your potential) and weight loss.  I also have experience of dealing with victims of abuse and relationship issues.

I've also helped sports people enhance their game and University students with exam anxieties.

Hypnotherapy can help with so many issues helping you to live the life that you want to lead.

I also train Hypnotherapists with Zetta Thomelin at HeadTogether in Deal.

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

I have worked alongside many people who have suffered abuse and the consequences of abuse, self-harm, eating disorders, anxiety etc., etc.  Please contact me if you'd like to know more about how Hypnotherapy can really help.

Key details

DBS check

Wheelchair user access
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.

My room is in a quiet village hall in Barham with access and parking.
