About me

I specialise in helping people identify and achieve their personal goals by coping with the issues that are causing them anxiety, and stress. I take great pride in the progress and the individual success of my clients.

I have many years’ experience in helping people working with charities and individuals and I am a person you can trust and feel safe with. I have a great personable character which is key to building a professional environment where you, as a client, can relax and be yourself.

My priority is my clients and I have a wealth of personal experience, qualifications and professional training to enable me to provide my clients with the therapy they need. I work within the guidelines of the National Hypnotherapy Society, an accredited organisation, of which I am a member.

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.

I charge £50.00 per session, which lasts 50 minutes. The initial session includes the consultation, which will require more time and will be charged accordingly. The amount of sessions needed will vary with each case.

Stopping smoking is usually one or two sessions of one and a half hours (1hr 30mins) to two hours (2hr) and is charged individually. Please call or email for further details.
