About me

Hello, my name is Michele and I am a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist and psychotherapist living and working in the beautiful Forest of Dean. I am also a Registered Nurse with many years of experience working in NHS hospitals and hospice care.

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a form of hypnotherapy which blends a modern psychotherapeutic approach, known as Solution Focused Psychotherapy, with the application of Clinical Hypnosis, and I use it to help people feel better and to achieve their goals.

I practise Solution Focused Hypnotherapy because I believe it is suitable for everybody. It can help with emotional and psychological difficulties and, through that route, offers support with many physical complaints, too. It alleviates suffering and promotes mental well-being and this makes it a truly person-centred, wholesome and holistic modality, which is what I love about it.

I work with both children and adults, from primary school-age children to the most senior citizens and everyone in-between – everybody receives a warm welcome at my Lydbrook practice.

Areas of hypnotherapy I deal with

        * If you have been diagnosed or suspect you may have one of the medical conditions starred above, you should consult your GP for advice, diagnosis and treatment and always inform your health professional before starting any alternative or additional therapies or treatments.


        I offer a free initial consultation where we meet, assess your needs and discuss what you want to achieve, how hypnotherapy can help you and how many sessions you are likely to need.


        • Initial Consultation (approx. 1 hour)            FREE
        • Hypnotherapy sessions (approx. 1 hour)      £60 each
        • Anti-smoking session (1.5 to 2 hours)         £150 complete (no separate consultation)

        Further information

        In Solution Focused Psychotherapy we look forwards rather than backwards, focusing on solutions for the future rather than dwelling on problems of the past. We don’t analyse the problem or why you have it but instead we help you find the solutions.

        This is the crucial component of this forward-facing approach, because we don’t expect you to constantly relive the things that have brought you to this point; on the contrary, reliving, retelling and re-experiencing painful or traumatic memories can be very unhelpful to bringing about positive change and is therefore not part of our practice.

        The hypnosis is relaxing and calming, but it doesn’t make you sleepy or groggy so it is perfectly alright to drive or go back to work immediately afterwards. People who see me in their lunch break have appreciated the stress-relieving benefits of a hypnosis session and the serenity it brings, and have found the experience restorative and even invigorating which they feel sets them up perfectly for the return to work.
