About me

Hi and welcome to my profile.

As an Integrative Hypnotherapist I use a range of therapeutic approaches and techniques depending on you and what you would like hypnotherapy for.  Hypnotherapy, psychotherapy, NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) and CBT.

We will take a look at what is causing you concern and establish your desired outcome. We can then move forward and work on this.

I am friendly, approachable and empathetic and work in a way that is entirely client focussed. I am happy to answer any questions you may have.


Hypnotherapy works by guiding the individual into a deeply relaxed state. During this time the mind is more open to suggestion and change. When in a relaxed state suggestions are made to help you make the changes you wish to make.

Hypnotherapy is safe, you are conscious and in control at all times and you can voluntarily leave the state of hypnosis at any time.

I work with Clients who are experiencing: Anxiety and Panic Attacks, Stress, Lack of Confidence, Low Self-Esteem, Phobias, Fears, want to improve Public Speaking, going through Bereavement, Smoking Cessation and Weight Management.


For many people experiencing anxiety hypnotherapy brings about positive change. Hypnotherapy for anxiety can help boost feelings of calmness while reducing feelings of fear and intense worry and overwhelm.

Hypnotherapy is very relaxing and whilst in hypnosis suggestions are used to help to promote positive changes.


Having a poor sense of self-esteem can have a huge impact. It can make it difficult to recognise our strengths and what we’re good at. This can then hold us back in both our personal and professional life.

Hypnotherapy can be a powerful tool in helping to increase self-esteem. When in a state of hypnosis - a deeply relaxed state - our subconscious mind is more open to suggestion. Working together we can look at the root cause of low self-esteem and work on changing negative thoughts about yourself to more positive and empowering ones.

**Smoking Cessation**

Hypnotherapy is fast becoming one of the most popular forms of treatment for smoking cessation.

Hypnotherapy works by guiding the individual into a deeply, relaxed state. During this time the mind is more open to suggestion and change. When this happens the Hypnotherapist will make suggestions which will help you in changing your thought patterns and behaviours associated with smoking.

**Weight Management**

Hypnotherapy can be an effective tool for weight management. Helping with motivation and working towards your weight management goals.

If you are interested in hypnotherapy and would like to know more I offer a 30 minute no-obligation telephone consultation so that you can ask any questions you may have.

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.

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.
