About me

Click website link above for much more information.

Are you struggling with unwanted thoughts or emotions?  Have you developed bad habits you want to break?  Are you eating too much or for the wrong reasons?  Are you fearful or anxious?  Are you finding it difficult to sleep at night?  Are you failing to achieve the happiness or success in life you'd like?

We live in enormously challenging times.  Anxiety levels are at an all time high.  It can be hard to switch off.  It can be hard to see the wood for the trees, let alone find the path out.

Hypnotherapy can help.

Call me for a free no obligation chat.  I love to see people overcome limiting beliefs and behaviours and start moving forward and enjoying their lives.

Cost of living crisis - I charge on a session by session basis, so you don't have to sign up for several sessions.  If I can help you to feel better in one or two sessions I will!  In addition I am developing a range of online courses which offer a less expensive option to traditional one-to-one sessions.

Weight loss - 'After 2 sessions with Lucy the weight I have struggled to lose for years is just falling off me! She has enabled me to eat when I'm hungry, stop when I'm full and not be interested in sugary snacks. I can't recommend her enough!'  Emma H (two sessions face-to-face)

Insomnia  - 'Great experience with Lucy who has helped with my insomnia. Very impressed and would thoroughly recommend her.'  Beverley H (one session face-to-face)

Insomnia - 'If you are struggling with sleeping, I really couldn't recommend it any more!' Lizzie G (online Sleep Well course, £35 see details on website)

Anxiety - '... helped me compartmentalise and gave me tools to cope when I’m feeling overwhelmed. The change I’ve felt has been huge, I can’t thank you enough.'  Rhiannon B (one session online)

Anxiety/confidence - '... I now feel ready to take a different approach, to be calm and I feel more confident that I can do and achieve what I want to.  My adventure is just beginning.' - Tracy P (two sessions face-to-face)

Anxiety - '... help with my anxiety at work presentations and in interviews. She was really kind and calm... I've got renewed confidence in these situations and have just started a great new job, with a hefty pay rise!'  Rob S (one session face-to-face)

Vaping - 'Thank you Lucy! Without your help I'm sure my Vaping addiction would still have its hold over me.'  Josh C (one session face-to-face)

Confidence -'Lucy helped me to gain the strength to face a very difficult family issue, she is kind, friendly, professional but most of all is very good at what she does... a remarkable experience.' Debbie F (two sessions face-to-face)

Emotional eating - '... with Lucy’s help I adapted my way of thinking and my relationship with food and I am seeing results on scales and within myself .  I have tried fad diets, other therapists and even hypnosis before I haven't ever come across anyone who has helped me this much.'  Amy F (after two sessions face-to-face)

Training, qualifications & experience

I was awarded a Distinction in my Practitioner Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy. This qualification is accredited by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council and the British Psychological Society.

I am registered with the General Hypnotherapy Register and the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council. I am fully insured.

I hold a Diploma in Neuro-Linguistic Programming and have completed specialist training in the use of Hypnotherapy in both smoking cessation and weight management.  I also underwent extensive training in nutrition and weight control when I worked for Weight Watchers.

I have lots of O-levels and A-levels and an Honours degree in English Literature, but those are all from a very long time ago and didn't equip me for a great deal in life.

Member organisations


Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC)

The CNHC encompasses many types of alternative therapy, including hypnotherapy.

In order to be admitted to the register a practitioner must have studied to the National Occupational Standards for that profession/discipline, or have reached the equivalent of the National Occupational Standards through other relevant training or at least three years of experience and been assessed by their peers.

A practitioner must also have professional insurance and agree to abide by the CNHC Code of Conduct, Performance and Ethics.


The General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR)

Hypnotherapists may become members of the General Hypnotherapy Register if they satisfy certain criteria with regard to both training and ongoing requirements as determined from time to time by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC).

Members are either registered at Practitioner status (which confirms that the GHR acknowledges their qualification to practice), or Affiliate status. Although Affiliate level registrants will have completed a sufficient number of training hours to equip them to commence seeing clients on a limited basis, the GHR does not acknowledge them to have yet been trained to full practitioner level.

All GHR Registered Practitioners are required to accept the published Code of Ethics and Complaints & Disciplinary Procedure.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

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.
