I have a clinic in South Liverpool but work nationally and internationally online via Zoom which is secure and easy to use. I love working online and my clients have found it to be a very positive experience,

I use Solution Focused techniques which are based in the latest research in neuroscience and brain research combined with hypnosis to produce fast, long lasting results.

During our first meeting we will get to know each other and the explore what is causing your anxiety and stress. You will have a chance to ask questions and I will give you a free download to listen to at night which will help the process enormously. Many people notice great improvement in how they feel even after this first appointment.

During the following weeks we will have 50 minute appointments which will combine positive psychology, easy exercises to rewire the brain and relaxing trance.  These meetings are usually very enjoyable and relaxing and leave people with a great feeling of calm and well being.  The work we do together looks to the future rather than dwelling on the past.
