About me

Solution Focused Clinical Hypnotherapy - Life Can Be Better!

As a Solution Focused Clinical Hypnotherapist, I have worked for many years in helping people overcome their difficulties and achieve their goals. I especially work with anxiety related issues, specifically anxiety,  fears, phobias, panic attacks, insomnia, low mood, self-esteem and IBS. I also offer Hypnotherapy for the Menopause. 

I provide sessions in Frome and Shaftesbury. I enjoy working with this positive, empowering therapy, which can be extremely effective in helping people make powerful and lasting change. Over the years I have enjoyed seeing how this can really support and enhance people’s lives.

I trained at the Clifton Practice in Bristol, one of the leading schools for Hypnotherapy in the UK and holds a nationally accredited Hypnotherapy Practitioners Diploma. Hypnotherapy combines psychotherapy,  Solution Focused Techniques and NLP techniques with hypnosis. This combination focuses on finding solutions to problems, setting and achieving goals and changing your life to how you want it to be.

I have a client base helping people with:-

  • anxiety/stress and panic attacks
  • low confidence/self-esteem                  
  • phobias, including social phobias
  • exams and driving tests
  • insomnia
  • Irritable bowel Syndrome     
  • public speaking/presentations
  • Hypnobirthing
  • Menopause and much more!

Further training includes Lifting Depression, Mindfulness, Counselling, Reflexology, Hypnobirthing and Menopause.

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.

Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with

Working with women with Fertility, Pregnancy Reflexology, with Hypnobirthing and the Menopause.

Additional information

Initial Consultation

I offer a 50 minute consultation which focuses on what you would like to achieve. This also allows me to explain more about Solution Focused Hypnotherapy and time to explain the neuroscience of the brain, an understanding of which is pivotal to achieving success. During this time I can also give you a better assessment of how many weekly sessions you are likely to need.

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is very much a collaborative process and it is important to understand that change takes effort and commitment. The consultation also gives us both the opportunity to assess if we feel comfortable and have enough rapport to enable us to work together effectively

Subsequent Sessions

This will involve talking about the progress has you have made and what is going well. We will look at any helpful tools or techniques to enable you to achieve your goals and spend time on focusing your thoughts in positive and effective ways. We concentrate on finding solutions to problems and focus on creating and achieving small steps in order to achieve goals. During the session the client in most cases, is guided into a relaxed state of hypnosis or other visualisation techniques are used. Sessions last between 50 -60 minutes.


Initial Consultation    £50.00

Subsequent sessions £55.00
