About me

As a therapist, my primary goal is to provide you with support as you embark on a journey towards gaining insights into your emotions and thought patterns. Together, we create a secure and non-judgmental space where you can freely express your thoughts, knowing that you will be heard and understood.

Within the realm of our subconscious mind lies the root of many psychological challenges we face. It governs a vast majority of our thoughts, emotions and behaviours. Utilising the powerful tool of hypnotherapy, we aim to induce a state of deep relaxation, enabling your subconscious mind to become receptive to positive suggestions. By doing so, we open the door to transformative change, allowing you to reshape your thinking patterns, emotions, and behaviours in a profound and positive way.

I offer online sessions and I can help you with the following: 

  • Sadness & depression
  • Stress & anxiety
  • Burnout
  • Self-esteem
  • Weight management
  • Sleep issues
  • Addictions
  • Fears & Phobias
  • Trauma, PTSD & C-PTSD

Training, qualifications & experience

I'm a certified Hypnotherapist and a member of the National Hypnotherapy Society. I hold a BSc in Psychology from the University of East London and an MSc in Business Psychology. I've also received training in various areas like Psychotherapy, Group Dynamics, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Systemic Therapy, Family Constellation,  Positive Psychology, and Mind-Body-Spirit Healing and I am currently a trainee Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counsellor. I'm also certified as a Mindfulness teacher, which is approved by the British Psychological Society (BPS), and I'm a registered member of Mindfulness Now.

My approach combines elements from Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT). I believe in a holistic approach that blends traditional talking therapy with innovative techniques like hypnosis, mindfulness, breath work, meditation, and family constellation. It's all about finding the right path for your well-being and personal growth.
