About me

I am here to help you to make change in your life. My approach is simple, friendly and confidential.

I am highly qualified with many years experience, and I have registration with CNHC, GHR, and GQHP. It gives me great pleasure to see the fantastic results that my clients achieve using the knowledge I have acquired, including new cutting edge techniques.

The majority of my clients come to see me as a recommendation from my many satisfied clients.

I help you make the changes you desire in as few sessions as possible. Often, only 1-3 sessions are required.

Do you want to change your life so you can have a happier and healthier life? Do you want more success in your life? I can help you.


Anxiety, stress, and panic

I have received many wonderful testimonials from clients I have helped overcome these problems. You will receive a recording to use at home on your first session.

Weight management

Many clients who come to me for weight loss now choose to have 'the virtual gastric band'. I use the Hypno-Band gastric band system. This system is tried and tested and is used by practitioners all over the world. You will receive three recordings for use at home. As a Hypno-Band practitioner, I am fully are licensed.

Sugar addiction

If you crave sweet things and are unable to resist them, it is possible that you are addicted to sugar. I offer a three-session program and a recording for home use to help you overcome your sugar habit.

Cut down alcohol

I also offer a three-session program and a recording for home use to help you cut down on your alcohol intake, and understand your mind programming on your alcohol consumption.

I also use Hypno-Slim very successfully for clients who wish to lose weight but do not wish to have the virtual gastric band.

Quit smoking in 90 minutes

Normally, only one session is required for you to become a happy non-smoker.
I receive many testimonials from happy ex-smoking clients, and I am often told that "I never wanted another cigarette".

Do you have a fear of flying?

I have helped many people to overcome this fear, and I can help you travel to places you would never have visited before.

Confidence and public speaking.

Hypnotherapy can help you to become the confident person you have always wanted to be.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • Diploma in advanced hypnotherapy
  • NLP master practitioner
  • Cognitive behaviour therapist
  • IBS certificate
  • NSCI practitioner
  • Smoking cessation specialist
  • GHR GQHP CNHC registered
  • Certified weight-management coach
  • Licensed hypno-band practitioner
  • Educational performance practitioner
  • Past life therapist
  • Motivation coach
  • Life coach.

I attend many training sessions that do not give a qualification, but all of them add considerably to the therapy that I offer. This helps me keep ahead of my field and ensures that my clients get a first class service.

Before qualifying as a hypnotherapist, I worked for many years as a driving instructor, and on many occasions I used positive visualisations and calming, relaxing hypnotic techniques with my clients in order to help them overcome test and driving nerves. I found this very successful, leading to an extremely high pass rate. This success led me to study hypnotherapy and alternative therapies. I have now been working as a therapist since 2004, and in that time I have helped many clients to make the change that they desired. This has resulted in receiving many testimonials and referrals from my clients - you can read some of these here.
