About me

Solution Focused Clinical Hypnotherapy - Life Can Be Better!

I am an qualified Solution Focused Hypnotherapist, Counsellor and Complementary Therapist.

I have a private practice in Shaftesbury, Dorset, where I offer Clinical Hypnotherapy and Complementary Therapies. I find this work very rewarding and worthwhile, as it can make such a difference to peoples lives. I also provide complementary therapy treatments and relaxation sessions for people in rehabilitation for drug/alcohol addiction at Clouds House.

I wanted to find a therapy which was short-term, successful and empowering, which was why I decided to develop my career further and train in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy at the Clifton Practice in Bristol, one of the leading schools for Hypnotherapy in the UK.

Clinical Hypnotherapy combines psychotherapy and Solution Focused Techniques with hypnosis. These techniques help to move you forwards and focus 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 where I work with people who are experiencing difficulties with

  • anxiety/stress
  • low confidence/self-esteem
  • phobias, including social phobias
  • exams and driving tests
  • irritable bowel syndrome
  • insomnia
  • public speaking/presentations
  • Pregnancy
  • Fertility and much more!

I also have completed further training in Hypnotherapy for fertility, pregnancy and for working specifically with children.

I feel it is a privilege to work with people who want to change their lives and it is wonderful to have found a therapy which is so positive and helps to promote lasting change.

Working with Fertility and Pregnancy.


Initial Consultation

I offer a one hour consultation which allows you to discuss any difficulties you have, how you would like hypnotherapy to help you and what you want 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.


Initial Consultation     £30

Subsequent sessions £45
