About me

I am a hypnotherapist providing therapy in Harrogate or online.

I believe in non-judgmental and empathetic listening.  I work with the concept that the client is the centre of our work.

I believe that people start to heal the moment they feel heard, understood and valued.  

Hypnotherapy is a dynamic way to reduce stress, anxiety, low moods, depression. 

The winner is the person who wins over themselves: their fears; their anxieties; their low self-esteem.  We are only restricted by the walls we build ourselves. 

Magic is believing in yourself.

My sessions are designed to explore and understand my client’s issues in a client-led approach to achieve the goals of my clients.

I support my clients to find the answers they always had hidden inside.  This results in improved self-awareness and confidence.  I believe that knowing your self-worth is the key to contentment.

My goal is to see my clients thriving in life and achieving their goals.

I also strongly believe that trauma is not a life sentence.  Trauma creates changes we don’t choose.  Healing creates changes we do choose. We repeat what we don’t repair. It’s time to repair.

Training, qualifications & experience

BA (Hons); Diploma in Professional Hypnotherapy; Certificate in NLP Skills; Certificate in Hypno-Coaching.

Hypnotherapy can enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice.
