About me

I am an integrated therapist specialising in Cognitive Behaviourial Hypnotherapy, that is solution focussed and tailored to each client I see.

I specialise in helping clients overcome their fears around a range of issues such as:

  • Fear of judgement that can lead to social anxiety of performance anxiety
  • Fear failure that can lead to behaviours such as perfectionism or imposter syndrome
  • Fear of  an object, place, situation, feeling or animal, commonly known as phobias. 
  • Fear of future events that lead to excessive worry or catastrophising.

I also deal with behaviours that relate to having these fears, such as insomnia or illnesses that are exacerbated by stress such as migraines, or IBS.

My practice ensures that every person is treated individually and all sessions are tailored to to you and your specific needs.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy and a diploma in Stress Management and Resillience Building.  I am registered with Complimentary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNCH) and the General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR).

Member organisations


Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC)

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 (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.

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.
