Welcome to New Beginnings Clinical Hypnotherapy
I believe that the ability to change our lives lies within each and every one of us and by accessing our own subconscious mind and understanding why we think, feel and act as we do, we are able to make positive changes. It is amazing to see the powerful changes that hypnotherapy can bring about in us all for a wide range of issues.
- Would you like to feel in control and stop worrying?
- Do you want to relax and sleep better at night?
- Do you want to view life with a more positive attitude?
- Perhaps you have a phobia that you would like to get under control?
It is natural for some clients to feel apprehensive before they have a hypnotherapy session and perhaps you may feel that you would not be fully in control. This really isn’t the case! Hypnosis is a deeply relaxed state where you are fully conscious of everything that is being said and fully in control of yourself.
The initial consultation starts with a discussion of your medical, emotional and life history so that I can fully understand the problem and discuss any worries that you may have. Everything that we discuss is in the strictest confidence. At this consultation we will discuss the issues that you wish to resolve and how I can help you.
Should you decide to go ahead with the session, I will use cutting edge techniques to find solutions and pave the way to positive change in your life. Each session will end with a positive trance experience that will help anchor the process of change and each session lasts for about an hour.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained at the Innervisions School of Clinical Hypnosis and I am a fully qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist registered with the General Hypnotherapy Council and the Complimentary and Natural Healthcare Council, both of which govern standards of excellence in the industry.
I have had extensive additional training with regards to stress and anxiety management and can offer a programme of help which incorporates both traditional hypnotherapy along side aspects of CBT and life coaching.
I am a Licensed Authoritarian and Motivational Weight Loss specialist, one of the first six to be Licensed in this country. This Programme has been running with amazing success rates by its founder, Steve Miller, TV presenter and weight loss expert, for some years now. It takes a very firm approach to weight loss and is comprised of 6 sessions of hypnotherapy as well a strong coaching support between sessions.
I also offer a four week weight reduction programme based on the Hypnoslimmer Programme, which aims to reprogramme the brain so that food is only eaten when a person is genuinely hungry and no longer used as an emotional comfort blanket.
I have also received additional training on working with children and have achieved some remarkable results regarding anxiety and phobias in this area.
I am a smoking cessation specialist and have an extremely high success rate in this area.
Weight control hypnotherapy is a passion of mine and I feel very strongly about wanting to help people lose the excess pounds. I make myself available on line and on my phone before and after hypnotherapy to encourage and motivate people to reach their ideal weight.
I have had a lot of experience of using hypnotherapy for children's issues and have received several positive results. Hypnotherapy can be very effective for children from the age of 5 upwards.
I have also received extra training relating to smoking cessation and have enabled several people to become non smokers.
i am now a Licensed Rapid Pain Elimination Therapist (RPET) a remarkably effective technique for reducing or removing chronic pain. It is currently being trialled by the NHS and is being used increasingly all over the world.
I am an EFT (emotional freedom technique) Practitioner which enables people to divert their attention from stressful situations or manage cravings, and works in a similar fashion to acupuncture using a tapping system as opposed to needles.
Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council
The CNHC encompasses many types of alternative therapy, including hypnotherapy.
In order to be admitted to the register a practitioner must have studied to the National Occupational Standards for that profession/discipline, or have reached the equivalent of the National Occupational Standards through other relevant training or at least three years of experience and been assessed by their peers.
A practitioner must also have professional insurance and agree to abide by the CNHC Code of Conduct, Performance and Ethics.
The General Hypnotherapy Register
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

I am available for appointments in the daytime, evenings and some weekends.
I offer a free, no obligation consultation in order to clearly explain the process of hypnotherapy and for you to decide whether or not you feel you could benefit from it. This also helps to clear up all the myths and misconceptions surrounding hypnosis and hypnotherapy.
