About me

I am a passionate therapist and have worked in therapeutic settings for over 8 years. My hypnotherapy journey began when I experienced sessions for myself for relationship based anxiety, and discovered just how life changing this form of therapy really is. 

The Solution Focused therapeutic approach really resonated with me, and lead to me training to become a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist at CPHT, Bristol, undertaking additional training of The Mind Reboot programme, focusing on processing emotions and reprograming responses from past trauma, clearing anxious/depressive states, emotional triggers and limiting beliefs

I work with adults with a variety of presenting problems from anxiety and depression, to IBS and fears and phobias (click here for comprehensive list).

I offer a kind, non-judgmental approach, taking the time to fully engage with, and understand those whom I work with, in order to offer the best support possible.

I also work with children and teenagers; I have a wealth of experience of working with a trauma informed approach in specialised roles for children with Neurodiversity and other additional social and emotional needs, as well as in hypnotherapy.

In hypnotherapy sessions I support children and young people in a nurturing and understanding way, taking the time to understand them and their individual needs, and allowing them to discover new ways of looking at life.

I also work with individuals who are looking to reconnect with who they really are and what is important to them.

I have always placed huge value on communicating with and understanding people, which stems from my experiences of growing up in France; and I pride myself on an empathetic and kind therapeutic approach, taking the time to understand clients in a holistic way, yet aiding clients to understand themselves and their behaviour, and supporting them in stepping into their own power.

​I am also a trained Yoga teacher and Reiki practitioner, with elements of Eastern philosophy being at the core of my hypnotherapy sessions: supporting you in aligning mind, body and soul, to uncover and live in accordance with your highest potential.

Additionally, before my therapeutic work I trained as a musical theatre performer, and enjoy extending my experience and knowledge to clients I work with now who wish to focus on performance based anixiety, public speaking/singing and confident expression.
