Areas of hypnotherapy I deal with

        * If you have been diagnosed or suspect you may have one of the medical conditions starred above, you should consult your GP for advice, diagnosis and treatment and always inform your health professional before starting any alternative or additional therapies or treatments.

        Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with

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


        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    £45

        Subsequent sessions £50
