About me

Hi, I'm Nicky,

Thank you for viewing my profile. I understand that sometimes asking for help can be a big step, so here are a couple of things that are really important for you to know about me:


We will have a balanced relationship. I am not here to judge or look down on your challenges. You will be listened to and understood and I will always be empathic as we work positively together to overcome whatever those difficulties may be. 

Collaborative process 

You are a very big part of your progress, I'm simply maximising on your inner resources and abilities - please trust me, they are there! You'll find that key insight into what is stopping you from moving forward and experience that 'Oh Yeah' moment. Once that happens,  you can progress in a new way.


I put my clients at ease, people have even been surprised at how relaxed our sessions have been. There is never any need to feel self-conscious or awkward in our meetings.

Knowledgeable and Experienced

I'm a fully qualified and experienced Solution-Focused Hypnotherapist, always keeping abreast of the latest research in neuroscience. I'm currently working towards the Advanced Hypnotherapy Diploma which is the highest level of hypnotherapy training in the UK. I’m also a counsellor-in-training. So you can be assured that the methods I use are proven and up to date.  And I see amazing results!

A hypnotherapist's voice is a key part of working together, please feel free to try the track below to get a flavour of our sessions:

Here are some lovely reviews that I've received from recent clients:

"Nicky is so kind and really put me at ease. The hypnotherapy sessions helped me greatly and Nicky speaks passionately and knowledgeably about what she is doing and why; I felt safe in her company and would highly, highly recommend her to anyone."

"Nicky is a warm-hearted dedicated professional I would have no trouble in wholeheartedly recommending. She is easy to talk to and focuses on what you want to achieve, whatever that may be. The mind is a complex place and for me just one session a week has made an enormous difference in positivity, performance and coping with life's rich tapestry of constant change and adaptation. Thank you Nicky!"

"Had beautiful, calm and most importantly effective sessions with Nicky. Her approach is sensitive, gentle, accepting and she recognises the uniqueness of the individual. Not at all how I imagined Hypnotherapy to be, more like peaceful relaxation combined with Clinical /Neuro-scientific techniques. Highly recommended." 

I work with clients of all ages who come to me with a variety of problems, from depression and anxiety to phobias and alcohol issues.

My therapy is gentle and effective, together we work on your self-belief and self-achievement. 

Based on the latest research in neuroscience, and always with your goals in mind, my sessions are relaxing, uplifting, and most importantly positive!

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.
