About me

Hello, As a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist and Person Centred Counsellor, I use a combination of Hypnosis linked with SFBT - Solution Focused Brief Therapy. I have helped and continue to help people who present with a broad range of issues which include: Work Related Stress, Anxiety, Depression, Panic Attacks, PTSD - Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Quitting Smoking and other Addictions. Plus I can help people manage common fears and phobias, that get in the way of living your life, for example, Flying, Needles, Spiders and Social Situations.

Hypnotherapy for Weight Loss includes using a variety of techniques specifically tailored to individual clients' needs. But my support will always be designed to help restore a healthier mindset towards food, build self-confidence and self-esteem, as well as many of the underlying contributing issues.

My specialist area is working with Anxiety, Stress, Low Mood and Confidence. These areas affect many of us at different times in our lives, for many different reasons. So it feels great to help my clients get back to their old selves, and in some cases better than before.

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is gentle, yet powerful. By helping you understand a little about how the brain works and why we think the way we do, with the added benefit of Hypnosis which helps you to make the changes you want to make and formulate new ways of going forward with your life positively. The majority of clients find the process very relaxing, incredibly helpful and an enjoyable, positive experience.

Training, qualifications & experience

I also hold a Diploma in Counselling, with 20 years post qualification experience. I also trained as an NLP Practitioner. EFT and various other techniques, which I have added to my tool kit.

I decided to expand my knowledge further and train in hypnotherapy, choosing the renowned CPHT in Plymouth. Gaining a full HPD - Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy Diploma.

Since then I have gained a Diploma in Psychosexual Dysfunction. And Advanced
BWRT - Brain Working Recursive Therapy.

For those of you who are as yet, unfamiliar with BWRT-Brain Working Recursive Therapy, which I think is set to change considerably in the coming years, as more therapists become aware and trained in its delivery, here is an outline of how I can best describe it.

BWRT™ is a cutting edge therapy for the twenty-first century. ‘BWRT™’ was created by one of the UK’s leading therapists and trainers. It’s a ‘content-free’ process that doesn’t rely on a therapist saying the right things or discovering private information or personal secrets. In fact, all the therapist needs to know is what the client wants to be able to do, or to be able to stop doing. Personal problems, fears, anxieties, even severe difficulties that have lasted for years can melt away almost as if by magic, and often in just a single session when working with a professionally registered BWRT™Practitioner. The therapy can even be carried out via the internet, so a lack of confidence, feelings of awkwardness or tight schedules need not be an obstacle to improving your life. In a session, the client is guided to use their just their own thoughts - without the therapist even needing to know what those thoughts are - in a special way to create a totally natural change that comes from within the client rather than from something the therapist says or does. All the work is done in a completely ‘awake state’ and doesn’t use hypnosis or any mysterious spiritual or religious ideas of any sort - it’s completely logical, practical and down-to-earth, and all it needs to be successful is for the client to want something in their life to be different.

Only registered Practitioners have been trained to deliver BWRT™ of which I am one, so please call or email me to book an appointment. 07813339295/or/01752 229143 or email

Areas of hypnotherapy I deal with

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.

Additional information

Initial Consultation, Assessment and Treatment Plan
The initial session is an integral part of your therapy, covering several crucial areas. It gives me an opportunity to take notes and for you to let me know what you would like to address in therapy. I also explain how the brain works, the relationship between our conscious and subconscious mind and I provide you with a clear understanding of the origin of our thoughts, habits and behaviours. I also clarify what hypnotherapy is (and is not!).

As I have other tools in in my therapeutic kit bag, and I can also offer Health & Life Coaching, Person Centered Counselling, CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) and BWRT (Brain Working Recursive Therapy) into your treatment paln, if it is appropriate for you.

Just to be clear no hypnosis treatment will take place during the initial consultation. But a lot of information is given and gathered during the initial consultation.
