Introduction: Confidence & Wellness Specialist, Anxiety & Stress Reduction, Trauma Release and Becoming Your Best Self

I use a variety of methods to help you achieve success.  Together we can discuss what will best suit your needs, what you want and how you can achieve your goals.

Supporting and helping men, women and teenagers who are facing challenges or difficulties and want to change some aspect of their life, including mid-life problems such as purpose, direction and confidence building. 

Based in Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire and working on-line. 

I work with a wide range of issues that people face on a daily basis like stress, anxiety, depression, phobias, trauma, habits, feelings of guilt, emotional problems, trust issues, overthinking, losing weight or stop smoking, and more. I help people to gain inner confidence, connect with their true self and rediscover joy in life, build emotional resilience and develop a positive, optimistic way of thinking.

Awarded the Hypnotherapy Practitioners Diploma (HPD) which is nationally accredited and recognised by the NCFE and the Professional Standards Authority. Registered with the General Hypnotherapy Register.  

Advanced qualification in BrainWorking Recursive Therapy (BWRT). Registered with the Institute of BWRT.

Certified advanced practitioner of WSN Counselling & Coaching, registered with The Essex Institute - helping clients to access their inner resources and discover strengths and abilities to excel in life.  We can examine your personality profile and discover why you perform at your best in certain areas of life and how to harness those resources in order to transfer key skills to other areas of your life too.

EMDR qualification - (Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing) uses eye-movement to detraumatise and reprogram subconscious learning. 

NLP Diploma (Neuro Linguistic Programming) - teaching the model and language of success, the power of words and how they affect the brain.

NVC Certification (Non-Violent Communication) - teaching advanced communication skills helping relationships to thrive.

Counselling qualification -  available for when you want to talk. I offer a non-judgemental listening ear, giving you time to think, formulate plans and work things out for yourself. 

Reiki Master Certification - a form of holistic energy healing that works with the life force that exists in all living things. A Reiki Practitioner channels the reiki energy into the client’s body to activate their own innate healing process. It is a calming, relaxing therapy that tunes into the energy fields in and around the body.   For deep emotional healing, relaxation and the release of energy blockages.  A Reiki Master can teach and attune others into the healing practice.  

Quantum Healing Hypnotherapy Technique (QHHT) and Shamanic Healing Hypnotherapy Qualification -  two models of therapy that explore the hidden world that lies outside the boundaries of physical reality.  QHHT allows people to access a part of themselves that holds all the answers. Some people call this the Higher Self, the Over Soul, the Super Conscious or Higher Mind.  With QHHT, you may achieve a clearer understanding of why things are the way they are, and ultimately create change within yourself.  QHHT works with people who are open to the idea of past life regression and the existence of 'soul'. Shamanic Hypnotherapy opens the door to the hidden world that lies beyond the 'veil.'  

I offer a FREE 30 minute informal chat to see if we are the right fit for working together, and if I am the right person to help you.

Google Review: "Mary is excellent and I cannot recommend enough. I had 3 sessions of hypnotherapy with her as I had developed a fear of needles and bloods being taken, after a traumatic stay in hospital. Following our sessions I have recently had a blood test at hospital which was stress free. I would definitely use Mary again if needed." Amye 

Google Review: "I had been putting on weight and failing to lose it for 7 years until I had the good fortune to meet Mary. Not only is she great at what she does, but her energy is calming, positive and empowering. Besides hypnotherapy, Mary gave me many suggestions and resources that really made a difference and helped me push forward and keep going. Thank you Mary, for everything and looking forward to the next chapter." Nadine

Google Review: "I love what Mary does! I was in a very dark place in my life, was struggling with high stakes exams as I am a medical doctor and I found it quite hard to overcome some of my issues, one of my dear colleagues recommended Mary and I got in touch with her, we did some BWRT sessions and I passed my exams the first time after doing them and then worked with Mary a year later as well for some family issues and found her to be fantastic at that time as well. She has a very calm, empowering demeanor and makes you overcome the limiting beliefs/ obstacles/ blocks in your life. Highly recommend her, she’s very good at what she does." The Inner Work Doctor

Google Review: "Mary is lovely! So warm and kind and a great listener too. Treatment was really interesting as well as being of great help to me. I was provided with lots of helpful resources, useful reading recommendations and tailor made recordings specifically for me to take away and continue working with. I recommend Mary wholeheartedly. Thank you Mary for the help, support and encouragement you have given to me."  Alison

Google Review: "I can not thank Mary enough for the amazing, supportive work she did with me. Mary has a unique ability to empathise with others, her calm nature is infectious and she prepares some amazing visual sessions to suit each individuals specific needs. If you commit to it, you come away feeling so empowered and with a skill set that makes you feel so much lighter and ready to face the world. Mary is a terrific hypnotherapist and a fantastic human being, I highly and wholeheartedly recommend her business. Thank you Mary!" Victoria  

Wife of client: "I can't thank you enough for the work you have done with George, he is in a much better place. It's so good to see him feeling happy and healthy 😊" Jackie

Client. Review:  "I reached out to Mary around anxieties I had about an upcoming driving test, and with the added pressure of the test being rescheduled due to the pandemic I felt I needed more support outside of my driving lessons. Mary helped me to calm those anxieties and worries through hypnotherapy sessions, and without those I honestly believe my anxieties would have overcome me on the day of the driving test. Mary understood and empathised with my situation, and most of all helped me to turn those worries into feelings of excitement. I passed my driving test first time, and have continued to drive confidently since. Thank you Mary for all your brilliant sessions!" Elle

Client Review:  "I just want to say the BIGGEST thank you. You supported me years ago and recently, you have done wonders for me. I feel like a totally different person and that is because of you! But also, you have helped my brother-in-law James who has come on leaps and bounds! He came to my house yesterday and was so lovely to see him back to him!!  So, thank you so much. You have changed our lives. And I talk about you to a lot of people." Natalie

Client Review: "Can't recommend Mary enough. She understood me straight away and made me understand that I Can make changes to improve my wellbeing. And I did. She helped me a lot! Thank you so much." Rasa

Client Review: "Mary initially saw me at a difficult period in my life... through a mix of techniques, Mary helped me to move forward, see more clearly and to change aspects of my life holding me back. She was professional yet personable - I thoroughly recommend Mary’s services!" Ruthie

Client Review: "Hi Mary, Hope you are well. I just wanted to email you to thank you for everything you did to help me overcome my depression and anxiety quite a few months back. I have noticed now that I am a MILLION times better. I am off all of my medication now. I went to see my GP yesterday for something else and he asked how I'm getting on with my mood. I said amazing and he could even see the difference. He asked me what I thought 'fixed' me and I said that I had BWRT with you and it worked so so well. To the point of him now saying he is going to advise his patients of it! I hope you don't mind, but I passed on your name and the treatment that we did.
So, again.. I just wanted to say thank you so so so much for all your hard work and for fixing me. Thanks, Tasha"

Client review: To cut a long story short when I met Mary 10 weeks ago I was 4 stone overweight, up to date I have lost 32 pounds and still progressing at an average of 2 pounds per week. Unbelievably I am not on a diet, I eat and drink what I want when I want but I do carry out portion control to maintain the weight loss. Mary did not physically remove over 2 stone of fat from my body and Mary did not wave a magic wand at me, I did it myself, fat old Andy did it. What Mary did was supply the information and tools required for me to succeed, I do not have enough words to express how grateful I am to this Lady. Mary has my contact phone number and I am more than willing to speak to anybody who wants a reference for Mary. Kind Regards, Andy

Client review: "Mary is a very skilled practitioner who helped me in my journey to overcoming my anxieties and destructive thought processes. Mary facilitated a safe and comfortable environment, which was conducive to making the changes necessary. I was delighted and amazed by the changes in my feelings and behaviour to a more positive state, which now makes my life more enjoyable!" Susan

Client Review: "Performance Anxiety…I started my sessions with terrible performance anxiety, but responded extremely well to the hypnosis, after three sessions I could see a notable difference in the decrease of my anxiety, this showed within my performance! I highly recommend this type of treatment, as I had tried mostly everything to try and lessen my anxiety. I had my doubts as to how effective it would be to start with, but I can confidently say now the original doubts are no longer there....[FOLLOW UP: I just got my results back from the exam I was able to retake, I received an A*! Thank you so much for your sessions, definitely gave me the boost I needed!] Maya

Client Review: No more cravings…“I enjoyed the hypnotherapy, it was very relaxing and I always felt great afterwards. I learnt to take control of my cravings and keep the image of what I wanted to become in my mind which saw me through my weight loss. What is different is that I no longer have cravings for cakes and desserts and do not feel deprived when eating healthy food. Now I enjoy my healthy meals as much as I enjoyed cream cakes before the hypnotherapy. I’ve lost 1.5 stone and can get into clothes I haven’t worn for 10years. I would and have recommended you to others. Chris "

Client Review: I was recommended to Mary by a friend. At the time I was in a very dark place, suffering from anxiety and deep depression. Just after one session with Mary, I could not believe the difference I felt. As the weeks went by with each session I felt more calm, relaxed and positive. I would not hesitate in recommending Mary to anyone that needs help. She has truly been an inspiration and huge help to me.” -Jan 

Client Review:I was very skeptical when I contacted Mary, mainly because I have never really believed that hypnosis would help with my issues. However, Mary immediately made me feel at ease, and did not promise me the she would change my world. However, what she did do was show me a way of coping with my issues on a daily basis using proven techniques and of course the use of hypnosis. I am happy to say, that although I am still a work in progress in a few areas, they are nowhere near as bad as they were. This is thanks to Mary’s easy, relaxed approach, her voice when going into a hypnotic state is very relaxing and easy to listen to. The techniques work if your follow Mary’s guidance. I am happy to recommend Mary, and will continue to use her on an adhoc basis to ensure I stay on top of everything. Mark"
