About me

About me and the way I work:
I am an experienced therapist working from my private practice in Leicester. I draw on my knowledge of several different therapeutic disciplines, of which hypnotherapy plays a major part, to blend a unique approach for each individual.  Through working together I help them to move towards what they wish to achieve; gaining greater understanding of themselves and what has been holding them back.

Prior to starting any therapy work I like to have a brief chat with new clients, either over the phone, or in person, just to find out what they are looking for in therapy. I will then make some suggestions as to how I think their particular issue can be approached and together, we create a positive way forward.
Experience has taught me that for many clients a session of EFT (emotional Freedom Technique) is a powerful way to begin, as it helps to create greater clarity of the problem. Clients also learn a new tool that they can use to help themselves; a powerful tool that they will always have access to. This can then be followed by a more targeted session of hypnotherapy that really gets to the root of any issues, putting new, positive ideas in place. Some clients, however are very clear about their issues and where they have arisen from and so hypnotherapy on its own is the best way forward for them. Whatever the issue, the benefit of having a range of different therapies that I can effectively work with is that, each time I work with a client, I offer an individual fit for what they need rather than trying to fit them into the therapy
