About me

Hi! I am a qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist, NLP Master Practitioner and Health Coach with a background in General Practice and Lifestyle Medicine. I specialise in supporting people with ongoing physical and mental health issues in understanding their experience and finding tools and resources to take back control of their health.

I have spent the last 25 years exploring how I can best support people to make the most of their health. I have studied conventional, integrative and lifestyle medicine, mindfulness teaching, clinical hypnotherapy and NLP, as well as coaching, behaviour change and habit formation. 

I believe that our bodies have an innate ability to heal, and much of my focus is on supporting my clients to tap into this by creating a healthy, healing environment for themselves through their lifestyle choices and habits (physical and mental). Most people I meet know what to do, the issue is in actually doing it... and this is where coaching and hypnotherapy comes in. There are so many tools and techniques we can use to help you move forward, overcome, grow and thrive!

I am used to treating a wide variety of health, wellbeing and lifestyle issues and am happy to discuss how I may help on a free 20-minute discovery call. ​My areas of particular interest, and where there is good evidence for my approach are:

  • Stress and overwhelm
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Insomnia
  • Chronic pain and fibromyalgia
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Irritable bowel syndrome

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.
