About me

Do you want to change your life for the better? I am an Accredited Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist, Trainer and Thrive Consultant. Come and see me for a free initial chat and together we can work out the way forward for you.

I can offer something for everyone including Suggestion Therapy or Clinical Hypnosis (to help achieve your short term goals), Cognitive Processing and Integrating (a talking therapy designed for you to re-visit some past experiences which may not have been processed adequately before and could be holding you back) Stopping Smoking with the Rob Kelly Thrive method, Treating Children and teenagers, The Thrive Programme (teaching you about yourself and helping you to develop self confidence, increase your self esteem and lower your social anxiety and to become more resilient, empowered and self reliant) I am also a licensed Hypno-Band practitioner (the virtual gastric band weight management method). Also I offer a Relaxed Childbirth programme.

A selection of symptoms that I can help you to overcome would be weight management, comfort eating, anxiety, stress, physical problems, pain management, chronic illnesses, sports performance, pregnancy and childbirth relaxation, shyness, compulsions and obsessions, smoking, drinking, sleep issues and so much more.

I have been in practice now since 2004. During my career I always worked face to face with clients and had a natural curiosity to find out more about what makes people tick. Why, for example when siblings have been brought up in virtually the same way they would display different traits and have differing abilities or problems? My training in both Thrive and
Hypnotherapy/Psychotherapy developed my insight into why people get into difficulties in life and provided a way for me to help them help themselves.

My commitment to my clients is paramount and I keep up with and add to my skills and knowledge on a regular basis, attending many training or refresher courses each year. That is not hard because I love what I do and embrace change.

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

Hypnotension - relaxation and techniques to help you de-stress and have a positive effect on your blood pressure
