About me

I will work with you on achieving your goals and on making positive changes to your life, in a supportive, compassionate, safe, caring, and private environment.  I will listen to you with sensitivity and empathy and without making judgments.  What would you like your life to be like?  I can help you take steps to achieve this.  I have helped people overcome difficulties and challenges, and take strides towards having a much better and more fulfilling life.  I will guide you to overcome negative, limiting beliefs and to flourish and be the person you want to be.

Before becoming a hypnotherapist, I had 18+ years experience as a teacher. During that time, I supported many children, parents, and carers experiencing emotional and mental health issues. I did this with compassion and care. I saw how healthy and unhealthy habits can start in childhood and how we carry these with us into our adulthood. I became more and more interested in the mind and how it works. I started to understand how negative thought and behaviour patterns are embedded at a young age. This is when I became interested in hypnotherapy. I was interested in finding out if it can help with stress and anxiety. I tried hypnotherapy myself and found it helpful and calming and my negative thought patterns started to change. I developed more positive and healthy thought and behaviour patterns. I then decided to study hypnotherapy myself. I love using hypnotherapy to help people improve their lives.

I have helped people from different backgrounds and with a range of issues to make positive shifts and improve their lives and achieve their goals. I have helped people with anxiety, stress, panic attacks, low self-esteem, sleep problems, weight loss, phobias, quitting smoking and pain control.  My passion is to empower my clients and to guide them to achieve their goals and find their solutions.

Currently, I am conducting my sessions online. I provide a safe, compassionate, and positive environment, where my clients feel supported and comfortable. My approach is effective; I use clinical hypnotherapy combined with mindfulness techniques and EFT.

What is hypnotherapy?

During the first session, we talk about your problems, we discuss your goals, and then we create a plan on how we would work on this. With hypnotherapy, the course of therapy is tailor made to each client’s needs. Normally the therapy takes 4-6 sessions. In some cases, it takes 12 sessions. It all depends on the situation and type of approach we agree to take. Hypnosis itself is a lovely state of relaxation where I, the hypnotherapist, can talk to the subconscious, asking it to alter negative thought and behaviour patterns. I need to stress that during this time, YOU are in control. They hypnotherapist does not control you. Your subconscious is alert and knows what is good for you and knows how to protect you.

Next step:

You can call me for a 20-minute free introductory consultation, where we can have a chat about what you would like to achieve and ask any questions. It is a chance for you to decide if I am the right therapist for you.
