About me

Do you want to annihilate anxiety, defeat a fear or phobia, wave that weight gain goodbye? If so, I can help.

Struggling with anxiety, stress, weight management issues, phobias or fears can feel as though you are fighting with yourself a lot of the time. I can help you build your confidence and your inner self commitment to make the changes you want to make.

The good news is help is at hand!

We all need  that outside help and support sometimes to keep us focused on what we want to do and stay focused to work through issues, to re-focus when we start to make excuses along the way. There are so many differing anxieties, worries, stressors that then create binge eating, over-eating, or being out-of-control generally to food or alcohol intake. Or it may be that you have just lost motivation or confidence at present and need that boost to get you back on track again and feeling more yourself.

Sometimes it is difficult to define how you feel and why you seem to be unable to feel better or behave in a different way in interactions with people or even with your own emotions. When we feel mentally, physically or emotionally drained or overwhelmed it can have an effect on how we feel and react in so many situations. It can take control of our lives and create habits, limiting beliefs, self-sabotage or simply stop us from doing the things we would like to do.  In fact it can limit our potential.

Therapy is tailored to your needs, whether that is a combination of therapies or using the stand-alone therapy of *BWRT(R) Psychotherapy.

All therapy or where appropriate a combination of therapies are chosen with your needs uppermost and in agreement and liaison with you and how you want to work. Examples are:

Clinical Solution-Focused Hypnotherapy

CBT techniques

NLP techniques

EFT Therapy

BodyTalk  WholeHealthCare  Therapy


Vagus Nerve/Vagal Tone Therapy



I offer a number of differing methods to help and support weight loss if being over-weight, binge-eating or if body issues are something you would like help with.  For instance:

As an experienced and qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist, HypnoBand(R) Gastric Band Practitioner, Advanced BWRT(R) Psychotherapist and Master Weight Loss Coach and Master BWRT(R) Transformation Coach, I can help you to feel better about yourself, helping you make constructive changes to your thoughts, feelings and actions.



"...I made an appointment with Michele at the Monmouth clinic and enrolled for a
course (5) of "Treatment" for the claustrophobia. I only had four sessions
and apart from Flying(which I haven't tried yet, but sure I would be ok) I
am able to do many things I was unable to do, go in a lift, alone or with
other people, I went through channel tunnel no probs, I can shut the door in
a room etc."

- AL

"Saw Michele for my phobia of spiders. I can now say the word and be in the same room as them. She also gave me a lot more confidence in myself I am more positive, relaxed and happy. Would recommend going to see her, she made me a better person. Thanks again,"

- CR

"Thought about changing things so many times but I couldn't have done it without this."


"I can't thank you enough for all you have done for me over the last few weeks. I feel like a new me, positive, relaxed and happy.  I will keep up all the new techniques you have shown me. Thanks again."


"Many thanks for all your care and for giving me back my confidence."

- SA

"I came slightly apprehensive but I was met with such a friendly approach. Coming here has released me from a straight-jacket; realising that I had potential, which is something I hadn't felt before, but I definitely do now. I would most certainly recommend this therapy to anyone who needs a helping hand in their life so that they can enjoy it to the full!".


"Made me a different person. After 8 weeks it has totally changed me. I am so much calmer, and friends and husband have noticed the physical change in me."


“I don’t know what you did to me but it worked! I flew without drugs – cool! Many thanks.”


"My husband asked me what I wanted for Christmas and I asked for these sessions and they have been the best Christmas present I have ever had."


"I came to see you about 18 months ago to help me with weight loss and it was fabulous."


'My treatment by Michele has been invaluable. She is delightful to work with and I have found the sessions most enjoyable.'


"I asked if they do anything regarding weight loss to which I was advised about Hypnoband and given information to read, in January 2019 I booked for a course (5) of treatment: at this time my weight was in excess of 21 stone. After the third session( 3 weeks)...I had during this time lost weight.

In all this time I was not hungry as I had previously felt and started
making homemade chicken soups, homemade low fat cottage pie, eating plenty
of fruit and veg, stopped eating bread and still don't eat bread, no fast
food, still have alcohol but much more reduced.
Today I weigh 16 stone and 4 lbs and all feelings remain
unaltered I am still not hungry and listen to the listening aids supplied to
me but again not every day as when I started.
I am so lucky to have met and been treated by Michele as I believe I would
still be at least the 21 plus stone that I was. And she will forever have my thanks
