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

I also work with Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and a variety of issues which have yet to get formal recognition within the Diagnostic and statisical manual (DSM). If you have an issue that doesn't fit any of the standard boxes get in touch and we can discuss it.
