About me

I am an Advanced Hypnotherapist and NLP Practitioner, Advanced BLAST® Technique Practitioner trained in EMDR. I can help you with Anxiety, PTSD and Trauma, Panic Attacks, Stress, Quit Smoking, Sleep Problems, insomnia, Weight Management, Improve Performance, Confidence, remove Phobias and Fears, in a relaxing environment, finding lasting effective solutions.

I have been actively involved in personal development since 2007, and am enthusiastic about learning more about human nature to enable me to help others and likewise, this helps me to grow as a human being. I am passionate and determined to help others overcome obstacles and problems, guiding them to discover their true inner potential, breaking free of self-limiting beliefs and making successful lasting changes. Together we can turn poison into medicine!

My experience of life's ups and down's and continuous self-improvement, have given me the ability to successfully help dozens of people to overcome their problems. Please see my website for testimonials.

Hypnotherapy is not a 'one size fits all' approach. I treat each client as an individual. We all perceive problems and situations subjectively, and respond differently. No two people are the same. I offer a bespoke session tailored to your unique needs.

What to expect at your first session

The first part of the session is getting to know each other in a relaxing environment where we can discuss what it is that you would like to change or improve, and your desired outcome. And in addition, ask me any questions. (You only share what you are willing to share). The second half of the session is a soothing, relaxing session of Hypnotherapy.

The second session and subsequent sessions (if required) are 1 hour long. We evaluate your progress and adapt each session accordingly.

How many sessions will I need?

This varies from person to person and we discuss this at the end of the session. If more than one session is required, this would normally be made approximately 1 or 2 weeks after the first session.

Stop /Quit smoking is usually achieved in one session.

What does hypnotherapy feel like and how does it work?

Going into trance is like daydreaming in a completely relaxed way, with nobody wanting or needing anything from you. This is time for yourself, in complete control. The session is based uniquely around your beliefs and goals and desired outcome. I often hear people tell me that it is the most relaxed they have ever been.

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

The General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR)

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.

Areas of hypnotherapy I deal with

Information about health conditions (*)

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.
