I’m a fully qualified Hypnotherapist (Dip. Hyp), NLP Coach & Life Coach who works in Portsmouth, Hampshire. Every client is different, so I offer a fully integrative approach where I use a blend of techniques that are concentrated on the needs & goals of the client. This enables me to help with a wide range of issues effectively. Examples of these techniques include: Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT); Parts Therapy; and Regression therapy.
I have always helped people and, in the end, becoming a therapist felt like the natural step to take. I chose to specialize in Hypnotherapy, NLP & Coaching as I have seen, first hand, how it can help people to make powerful and long lasting changes. It can remove limiting beliefs and unwanted habits and help you to grasp your goals and free your potential.
It’s natural to have questions or want to know more about hypnotherapy and NLP so I am always happy to provide answers to your questions.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.
What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnosis can be described as a focusing of thoughts while in a relaxed state. Clients often say that being hypnotized feels like a day dream, and in some ways it is. Whilst you’re in a state of gentle relaxation, the hypnotherapist will act as a guide and encourage you to imagine scenes, sounds or feelings. This process is very effective at getting past your conscious mind and talking directly with your subconscious.
A Hypnotherapist, is someone who is trained to guide you through hypnosis and help you unlock your inner resources. They will use different (but similar) techniques to help you do this. These resources are inside everyone and they can help you make the change you desire.
How can Hypnotherapy help me?
Whether you want to rid yourself of a phobia, quit a habit or release a traumatic memory, hypnotherapy can help.
Day to day we use our conscious mind to think about our lives and make decisions based on our thoughts. However your conscious mind takes cues from your subconscious mind, where all of your beliefs, values, memories and emotions are stored; including fears, traumas and habits. It stores everything there, even if the thoughts and memories its stores are not appropriate anymore. Sometimes a subconscious thought can be less than helpful; causing a fear of heights for instance could be an annoyance and something you may wish to overcome. A hypnotherapist can encourage your subconscious to re-learn and in the process, remove any un-useful or unwanted thoughts, behaviors or beliefs. Changing these thoughts at a subconscious level is incredibly powerful and the uses for hypnotherapy are wide and varied because of this.
I use hypnotherapy in a combination of approaches over a number of sessions, usually between 4-6 sessions, to help you achieve your desired goal. By using the approaches that suit you, the results will be more successful, powerful and long-lasting.
What is NLP Coaching?
NLP stands for ‘Neuro Linguistic Programming’; it is a specialist technique that is goal-orientated and practical. People use NLP coaching for many reasons including: coping with stress/stress management, anger management, anxiety, improving performance and time management to name a few.
NLP coaching can help you make the changes you want happen.
NLP coaching explores future possibilities and solutions in order to help clients achieve their goals.
Coaches specializing in NLP are trained to use a variety of methods and models to help improve your own awareness of the situation you are in. By uncovering their clients unique view of the world, a coach can identify any self-imposed restrictions and then help to challenge them. Challenging those beliefs, and harnessing the power of language, will help to transform them; adding choices and widening perceptions.
NLP coaching can assist with:
- Stress management
- Time management
- Work life balance
- Project planning
- Goal achievement
- Problem solving
- Study planning
- Personal growth
Coaches are often used in industry to help their top staff reach their full potential. Executive coaching like this is also part of what an NLP coach does. I am happy to talk to executives and entrepreneurs about achieving their desired success.
So what’s holding you back? Let your coach help you to create a tool kit for your mind; learn to identify what’s holding you back, challenge that block, and break it down without the need to dig up the past.
What happens as a result of a session is in your hands. NLP techniques are used to set you on a path towards achieving your goals. As well as noticing change in yourself, those around you in personal or professional capacities will notice changes too.
