As a university and college lecturer I became interested in specialising in hypnotherapy and counselling and I have been practising for two years.
Hypnotherapy allows you to have a break from everyday activity in order to take a moment of reflection and wonder to search for the soul-utions we need to our everyday problems. I deal with anxiety, stress and depression, weight loss, smoking and alcohol cessation as well as loss and bereavement, phobias and counsel on partnership issues.
What is Hypnotherapy?
In the hypnotic state, no matter how absorbing or compelling the images filling the awareness, we remain alert to the outside world and it is possible to extract oneself instantly from the hypnotic experience. I ask clients to imagine they are relaxing and drifting off on the beach by the sea - this is what it feels like. You and not the therapist are in control of what happens and you will remember all that happens while int he trance sate and the usefulness of the trance depends on your willingness to participate and continue to maintain the process.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold a Diploma in Hypnotherapy and Counselling and an Advanced Diploma in Counselling and Pscyhotherapy. I have been practising for seven years and am currently researching for a PhD the link between hypnotherapeutic treatments, and spirituality as a precursor to success in the treatment of addiction, particularly for alcohol and drugs. I have successful treated many clients suffering with anxiety, stress, fear and depression related to a wide variety to causes that may eventually result in physical illness. I work with younger clients exposed to abuse and bullying during earlier educational years helping to rebuild confident, self esteem and strengthen meaningful two-way relationships. I am also a part time lecturer at university level with an MA and am an experienced speaker recently giving talks on addiction and anxiety at the Global Women Economic Forum 2016 and 2017 in Delhi, India, as well as in London on anxiety and fear. I am also a regular speaker at business breakfasts in Kent.

Areas of hypnotherapy I deal with
Information about health conditions (*)
Hypnotherapy can enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice. If you have been diagnosed with - or suspect you may have - any of these conditions, please speak to your doctor before starting hypnotherapy.
Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with
Stress and anxiety in the workplace resulting in binge eating, alcohol abuse and relationship problems.
