About me

I am a Clinical Transpersonal Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist and I work in private practice in a quiet location in South Benfleet with good links to A13 and mainline stations.

Hypnotherapy for:

  • treatment for panic and anxiety
  • stress
  • smoking cessation
  • weight management
  • pain management
  • exploring the past
  • looking for direction

I am also an experienced, fully qualified and accredited counselling psychotherapist for both adults and children.

I am an accredited member of the National Counselling Society, a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and a member of the BABCP (British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies) and adopt their frameworks of good practice and ethical principles.

I have experience with helping people with a wide variety of emotional issues and believe that I can help you move forward with your life in a way that fits and suits you. In addition to this, I also offer relationship counselling and have a good deal of knowledge in this field to help you both move forward and communicate effectively and honestly.

I have a particular specialist area working with children and adults with learning disabilities, behavioural problems and autistic spectrum disorders. I can help you as the parent of a child come to terms with diagnosis and help you develop strategies to cope with being the carer as well as being the parent. If you have recently been diagnosed with autism or learning disability, this can be a particularly difficult time. I can help you, as an individual, cope with diagnosis, deal with emotions and develop strategies to help you lead a more fulfilling life.

Another area of my work involves helping people with weight loss using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy techniques and working through the emotional issues surrounding it. Counselling can be a very effective additional tool with a weight loss programme. However, before undertaking any sudden changes to your diet, it is important to discuss this with your GP first.

I work in an integrative way, using Hypnotherapy, Transactional Analysis, Person Centred Therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.



If you are suffering from anxiety or having panic attacks, I can help you learn to identify your triggers and learn how to make the necessary changes in order to help you get back to being you. I use hypnosis relaxation techniques (with positive suggestion) to help you learn to control your anxieties and also incorporate, outside of the relaxation technique, the right therapeutic approach for you to help you move forward with your life.


If you are struggling deciding on direction or focusing on which path to follow hypnosis can help you move forward and focus on these decisions. Being in a calm and relaxed state allows you to make decisions more freely.


This is a deep relaxation technique to help battle everyday stress, work related stress or emotional stress. If this is you and at times you can't see the "wood for the trees" relaxation hypnosis techniques can help you process all that information floating around allowing you to clear the path.


Are you struggling to lose weight? This hypnosis program can help support and motivate you to make the necessary changes that you want to your lifestyle. During the weight management program I can help you address your self-esteem, body image and issues both emotional and psychological around food. If you would like further information regarding the amount of sessions and the costs for this package, please contact me via email or telephone.
