About me

I offer online hypnotherapy to help with many issues including anxiety, depression, panic attacks, stress, fears, phobias, and weight loss, as well as with childbirth, addictions and habits.

It means I can work with people all over the English speaking world which is amazing.

It is important to have confidence that the hypnotherapist you choose is both well qualified and experienced. So here is some information and please do visit my website for more details and for testimonials from past clients.

I always offer a free initial consultation either oneline or by telephone so that I can take a full history, not just about why you are seeking help, but a broader history. There are two different approaches I can take according to need; Clinical or Analytical Hypnotherapy.

Clinical Hypnotherapy treats symptoms, habits and all kinds of fears. Analytical Hypnotherapy treats the root cause of these issues. Sometimes, a problem is just too deep rooted for Clinical Hypnotherapy and Pure Hypno-Analysis (a very special kind of Analytical Hypnotherapy) is wonderful at resolving them.

The initial consultation allows me to recommend the right approach for you. Please be assured, there is never any pressure to make a decision then and there; you can take time to have a think about it and make an informed choice. It also gives you a chance to meet me online with no obligation and to find out how/why Hypnotherapy works so well.

I have successfully worked with clients all over the UK and beyond for many years, helping them to change their lives in ways they often thought would not be possible – or as easy!

I regularly receive referrals from the medical profession; GP’s, Specialists and Consultants who have seen the positive changes hypnotherapy has created in their patients. I also get many referrals from past clients. It is fantastic to see these positive changes and makes being a hypnotherapist so worthwhile!

Clients have told me that they find me friendly, professional and very empathetic.

Contact me for a free initial consultation online or by telephone.

The initial consultation is very informal. Or you may have some questions you would like to ask first?

Please do call or drop me an email to arrange for your free initial consultation.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Diploma in Hypnotherapy & Hypno-Analysis – gained through continuous study and training with the Hypnotherapy Control Board (Europe’s largest Hypnotherapy school), and I am also a Member of the International Association of pure Hypno Analysts (MIAPH), which was established in 1981, and is probably the largest group of Analytical Hypnotherapists in existence.

The Hypnotherapy Control board is the only school which teaches Pure Hypno Analysis. I am also a Clinical Hypnotherapist, a licensed NLP Practitioner (Neuro Linguistic Programming) and hold counselling, teaching and coaching qualifications.

I am also qualified to administer the Myers Briggs Type Index (MBTI) - a powerful psychological personality type profile used for personal development and growth - and I am registered with the Oxford Psychology Group.

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

Along with my successful weight loss programme and smoking cessation sessions, one of my main areas of expertise is on treating underlying or deep rooted anxiety and all it's related symptoms, whether it be fears and phobias, addictions or habits, depression or panic attacks, or sexual dysfunction, low self-esteem etc.

HYPNOBIRTHING (Hypnosis for Childbirth)

I have also published a Hypnosis for Childbirth programme which consists of 4 recordings's, a video and a booklet. This is available to purchase as an electronic download from my website. Feedback has been wonderful! We are working on an App as you read this.

Please contact me to find out more either by phone or online.

Photos & videos


These are dependent on the type of hypnotherapy required. Once we have had your initial consultation and I have recommended the type and number of sessions, I will be able to give you this information for you to think about.

Further information

WEIGHT LOSS - I don't offer Gastric Band Hypnotherapy as I believe that to sustain weight loss it is important to change your eating habits to sustainable healthy one - changing what you eat, how much you eat it, and when you eat it.

My Clinical Hypnotherapy personalised, weight loss programme, like my other hypnotherapy sessions, utilises the power of your subconscious mind to make it incredibly easy to make these changes, to completely re-educate you to get back in touch with your body and to eat the right foods, to eat only as much as you need to, and only when you need to! No need for unsustainable drastic under-eating which is only likely to result in the weight piling back. 

I also give you a link to a weight loss recording to listen to both during the programme and afterwards until you reach your desired weight or size - it is always there for the future, should any bad habits begin to creep back in - you just listen to it again and keep on track!

Occasionally, for some people, where weight has been a life long challenge, Pure Hypno Analysis is more suitable to get to, and eliminate, the root cause of their damaging relationship with food.

Contact me to arrange a free initial consultation online or by telephone to find out more.

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a hypnotherapist's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.
