About me

Anxiety isn’t permanent – it’s simply a pattern of thinking, a habit that the brain has latched on to and you're struggling to break out of its grip. 

The good news is that the solution is relatively simple, but it can’t be done by will power alone. By using hypnotherapy, I can reboot your settings, reassure your brain that everything is ok, that you can relax and let go of constant worrying and anxiety.

These anxious patterns of behaviour only make things worse as the more you focus on the fear, or the more you accept the negative voices that hold you back, the stronger the grip becomes.

Therefore, the sooner we change the messages the better.

We will start each session with a discussion about what it is that you want, and I will reinforce this message in the hypnotherapy. This will create rapid and positive changes in the way you think, feel, and respond. As my work is only created for you it will be specific to your needs directly targeting your motivation and triggers. It will always be positive and empowering.

All my work is led by you and is personal to you so whether you struggle with generalised anxiety, specific issues such as health, food, work, relationship or from fears or phobias, low motivation or poor self-confidence, together we will overcome them.

I offer a free initial consultation when you can ask me questions and I will explain how I can help you. It is free and there’s no obligation to move forwards with me so if you are interested  why not email me or have a look at my website where there is also a contact page there.

What to expect from the hypnotherapy

Our sessions will last about an hour and the hypnotherapy is a relaxing 20 minutes or so when you feel deeply comfortable, your mind will switch off and I will talk to you gently (in my normal voice) and reassure your subconscious that it can let go of whatever is holding you back. You will be awake but soothed and calm and there is no responsibility for you to do anything other than to just sit comfortably and let me do the rest. Afterwards you will feel deeply calm and ready for anything.

I will give you a free audio recording to reinforce the hypnotherapy between sessions and it will be yours to keep forever to keep the momentum going long after our sessions are done.


I have 2 clinics - one in Hove and the other is in Steyning ,West Sussex. Both are lovely with easy access parking. I also see many clients on line as zoom allows you to be in the comfort of your own home and to relax for as long as you like after the hypnotherapy.

Both work equally well and its a matter of your personal preference.

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

I am an anxiety specialist and within that will fall any number of worries, anxieties, fear and concerns . So whatever is troubling you please contact me and we can talk it though.

 I am also a specialist in sleep disorders and weight loss.

I look forward to receiving your message,
Best wishes
