A little about me
I have spent the last 21 years working in the television broadcast sector as a Production Manager. For anyone that has any insight into my industry you will know, you have to be fully committed, go the extra mile, work long hours and be able to multi task in a high paced demanding environment. It has been a very rewarding career that has seen me travel, work with an array of companies, meet many fantastic colleagues and talents. Whilst I have enjoyed working in TV I also enjoy being able to help others help themselves.
My curiosity in therapy led me to attend lectures in NLP with David Shephard in my early 20’s and since then I have reached out to therapy many times to help me navigate complications and find my way both personally and professionally.
More importantly I gained tools to help myself succeed and move away from doubt and this is what I hope to achieve with you.
Of course, everything hasn’t always been plain sailing for me, from a young age the younger me, had to navigate Dyslexia at a time when Dyslexia was not widely recognised. I had no support in my early years which lead to a low confidence. Luckily, later on in higher education, I had assistance from some of the very best therapists and tutors which gave me confidence and determination to get ahead and do well for myself.
My career has been varied and exciting but full of highs and lows. The pressure we place upon ourselves and our performance in the work place tasked with the expectations of the employer can lead to a sense of overwhelm as we juggle personal and family life. In most cases this may lead to stress and ‘burnout’.
This is something I experienced first-hand and without even realising it I had placed myself under pressure I had to step away from my job, I couldn’t function properly and I lost my voice for a period of six months. The good news is, that, with reflection and some therapy I found a new way of working and haven’t looked back since. You can only eat an elephant one bite size at a time.
More recently, I decided to change things up and train to become a Cognitive Hypnotherapist with the prestigious Quest Institute, Regents college London. The brain is fascinating and the stories we tell ourselves are even more fascinating. The good news is that each day we have the ability to re-write our story we don’t have to be bound to the shackles of the past. From today, should you choose it, you can be whoever you want to be and free from your problem.

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.
