About me

As a Clinical Hypnotherapist I take my work with peoples mental, emotional, psychological and physical problems very seriously. I have a dynamic and adaptable style rather than a 'one size fits all' approach. My versatile approach means I don't have to explore the past for the problem, we can simply focus on how you are now and how you want to be. Of course, if exploration is needed, then that's what we will do!

I've trained with the best in the UK and America and use modern advanced techniques to help people like you overcome blocks in their life, physical trauma from accidents, mental trauma, weight loss, anxiety and so much more.

I'm a specialist in the treatment of clients with childhood issues such as trauma from physical, mental and sexual abuse. Some of the symptoms from this type of trauma include anxiety, weight problems, lack of self-esteem and relationship difficulties. I have great success in this area and it is a pleasure to watch lives transform and people find their inner strength.

Having helped literally hundreds of people lose weight I've noticed a running theme that the connection between the mind and stomach is either lost or habitual behaviours/survival mechanisms prevent achieving a healthy relationship with food. The results my clients achieve and the comments are incredible as they deal with negative behaviours, cravings, mind reprogramming and so much more!

I am proud to say that I also practice the EMDR technique. Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a therapeutic method that now receives worldwide recognition, particularly in the field of, but not limited to trauma. It uses eye movements and other stimuli to facilitate rapid processing of traumatic memories.

I am also committed to showing people that they don't have to suffer from anxiety. Anxiety and anxiety based disorders such as Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Phobias, Panic Attacks, Social Anxiety Disorder and Generalised Anxiety Disorder all come from your unique life experiences that haven't been fully released.

I am excited to introduce a groundbreaking new service: Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP). This innovative treatment is designed for individuals facing treatment-resistant conditions, offering a new ray of hope where traditional methods may have fallen short. KAP combines the use of low-dose ketamine, a medication with unique and rapid-acting therapeutic effects, with the supportive guidance of psychotherapy. This combination has shown remarkable results in treating a range of challenging mental health issues, including severe depression, chronic anxiety, and PTSD. In this safe and controlled setting, ketamine acts as a catalyst, often providing profound insights and a shift in perspective, enabling a deeper and more effective therapeutic process. If you've been struggling to find relief with conventional therapies, KAP could be the transformative experience you've been seeking. It's not just about symptom relief; it's about embarking on a journey towards profound personal growth and healing. Reach out to explore how Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy can illuminate your path to recovery and well-being.

I'm deeply committed to getting my clients living the life they want to lead.

People come to see me for relief of many other problems as well so if you don't see what you're looking for then please get in touch, I'll tell you if I'm in a position to help or refer you to someone more appropriate.

I will give you and your issue the respect it deserves. I take great pride in the speed at which I work and helping you to resolve your issues so you can get on with your new life and new set of beliefs!

Member organisations

The General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR)

Hypnotherapists may become members of the General Hypnotherapy Register if they satisfy certain criteria with regard to both training and ongoing requirements as determined from time to time by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC).

Members are either registered at Practitioner status (which confirms that the GHR acknowledges their qualification to practice), or Affiliate status. Although Affiliate level registrants will have completed a sufficient number of training hours to equip them to commence seeing clients on a limited basis, the GHR does not acknowledge them to have yet been trained to full practitioner level.

All GHR Registered Practitioners are required to accept the published Code of Ethics and Complaints & Disciplinary Procedure.
