About me

I'm a qualified coach and hypnotherapist, and I am passionate about the difference that person centred care can make in our lives. Having first trained and worked as a nurse, I’ve spent many years working at senior levels in the healthcare system, in both Australia and the UK. Through my career I have come to see that an increased focus on wellness, rather than illness, is vital to the way we need to manage our health as individuals and communities.

Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday Sunday

I work with many clients in Australia and other parts of the world and I'm happy to  arrange appointments outside these core hours. 

Further information

I work with clients who want to take control of their mental and physical health through changing unwanted behaviors and outdated core belief systems.

I tailor my approach for each individual client and use a combination of hypnotherapy, coaching, positive psychology and mindfulness techniques.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

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.

You can contact the hypnotherapist to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
