About me

I am an experienced, registered clinical Hypnotherapist and I offer a professional and discreet service from my established practices in Woodford Green, Essex as well as London City and London EC1.

I am a member of the UK General Hypnotherapy Register, The National Council of Hypnotherapy and I am also registered with the National Guild of Hypnotists, which is recognised worldwide with membership in over 70 countries. I adhere to the codes of ethics and conduct of these organisations.

It is essential for the clinical hypnotherapist to utilise the most effective and advanced tools available today. I have been trained in these techniques by some of the UK's and U.S's leading exponents.

I am a certified professional in 5-PATH Hypnosis and Rewind Technique (PTSD).

Unlike many hypnotherapists who use only suggestion hypnosis to help their clients overcome their problems or achieve their goals, I also use advanced analytical hypnotherapy, encompassing Age Regression Techniques with Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) techniques, where appropriate.

This combination achieves greater success in a shorter period. Analytical hypnotherapy techniques enable us get to the root cause of the problem so you can let go of any unhelpful underlying emotions and feelings. NLP techniques are used to help motivate and to change negative feelings into positive ones. Where there is an unwanted, negative habit or behaviour, I will help you break the behaviour and replace it with something better for you.

You are unique; the approach I take is tailored to the individual in order to achieve the desired result. My goal is to always work within a framework of honesty, genuine care, confidentiality and support.

I treat all age groups living in East London and Essex including Chigwell, Woodford Green, South Woodford, Loughton, Barking, Romford, Havering, Epping, Ilford, Wanstead, Leytonstone, Leyton, Chingford, Highams Park, Harlow,and Buckhurst Hill.

Member organisations


Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council

The CNHC encompasses many types of alternative therapy, including hypnotherapy.

In order to be admitted to the register a practitioner must have studied to the National Occupational Standards for that profession/discipline, or have reached the equivalent of the National Occupational Standards through other relevant training or at least three years of experience and been assessed by their peers.

A practitioner must also have professional insurance and agree to abide by the CNHC Code of Conduct, Performance and Ethics.


The General Hypnotherapy Register

Hypnotherapists may become members of the General Hypnotherapy Register if they satisfy certain criteria with regard to both training and ongoing requirements as determined from time to time by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC).

Members are either registered at Practitioner status (which confirms that the GHR acknowledges their qualification to practice), or Affiliate status. Although Affiliate level registrants will have completed a sufficient number of training hours to equip them to commence seeing clients on a limited basis, the GHR does not acknowledge them to have yet been trained to full practitioner level.

All GHR Registered Practitioners are required to accept the published Code of Ethics and Complaints & Disciplinary Procedure.


National Council for Hypnotherapy

The National Council for Hypnotherapy holds one of the largest registers of independent Hypnotherapists in the United Kingdom and strives to maintain the highest standards among its members.

There is an agreed Code of Conduct, an established Complaints & Disciplinary Procedure and all members are obliged to maintain comprehensive Public Liability & Professional Indemnity Insurance, maintain regular CPD (continuing professional development) hours, and attend Supervision when needed.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a hypnotherapist's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the hypnotherapist to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
