I am a Registered General Nurse and have worked in the NHS for 20 years. I also work as a Clinical Hypnotherapist in Wedmore Surgery and ST Beauty in Wells. I have achieved my Diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy from the Clifton Practice of Hypnotherapy Training (CPHT) in Bristol. As a fully trained Clinical Hypnotherapist I can help people by empowering them to realise their full potential and rediscover their inner strength.
Clinical Hypnotherapy is safe and a perfect way to help you cope with anxiety, depression and phobias as well as sleep problems, panic attacks, blushing and exam stress. It can help with low confidence and lack of motivation by encouraging a shift in perspective. It works by changing negative thoughts into positive actions. I help people to feel more relaxed and better able to cope with stressful situations.
Becoming a nurse came from a desire to help and care for people in their times of need. I became interested in hypnotherapy when I wanted a way to help people to live a better life and to conquer their emotional problems as I believe that good mental health is a way to encourage healthy choices which can lead to a full and happy life. It is hugely rewarding to see someone progress from feeling anxious and nervous to becoming confident and better able to cope with stressful situations.
