About me

Hello, I help people put things right in their lives; I offer an experienced yet straight forward service, we will agree on what you want to achieve from your sessions and we achieve it!

My sessions are relaxing and a safe place to off load and work through problems. Whether its straight forward quitting smoking or more serious issues from depression to addictions, weight loss to self esteem building.

I work a lot with children and teenagers as well as adults for anxiety, phobias, exam nerves, fear of flying, public speaking. Several phobias I have helped eliminate in 1 hour sessions ( even eating fish phobia!).

An area where I have equal success is weight loss, especially comfort and emotional eating. I have ceased using gastric band hypnosis as in the long term it didnt work. I now do Plan for Life a new protocol based on individual emotional needs and a healthy eating plan for life no more dieting. It includes the odd curry, pizza and mars bar! And it works !

I offer free consultations over the phone and if the issues require longer treatment e.g. panic disorder or depression I offer reduced rates for blocks.

I help people identify how they think so they can change how they feel. We set specific goals and targets so both parties clearly know when therapy is over and roughly how long it will take to overcome a problem. I also teach the psychology behind the techniques so people can become their own therapists.

I like to make my sessions fun, inspiring and relaxing. I also can record the sessions and supply mp3 recordings which I find does speed up the entire therapy process.

For more details of me and Peaceful Minds www.peacefulminds.org.uk ...for weight loss, including comfort hypnotherapy, quitting smoking to other addictions such as alcohol dependency, confidence to insomnia...

Hypnotherapy for anxiety, depression, nerves, confidence self esteem is greatly enhanced by cognitive behavioural work. I use this psychology to work out individual treatment plans. As a hypnotherapist I am also aware that even booking an appoinment can be part of the anxiety ! Please see some of my testimonials and videos to put you at ease.
