About me

Hello, I help people put things right in their lives; I offer a safe place to work through issues using an experienced yet straight forward approach. We will agree on what you want to achieve from your sessions and we achieve it! Kids, teenagers and adults.

I see most clients face to face The remaining sessions are via Zoom, skype or other calls work just as well, obviously not as personable, but the job still gets done!

My sessions are relaxing and a safe place to off load and work through problems. With over 15 years experience there is very little I haven't dealt with. Being a CBT psychotherapist gives me more understanding than I would have had if I were just a hypnotherapist. Whether its straight forward quitting smoking or more serious issues from depression to addictions, weight loss to self esteem building, I can help people learn to overcome their issues.

I work a lot with anxiety, trauma 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 ...for weight loss, including emotional eating, quitting smoking to other addictions such as alcohol dependency, confidence to insomnia....

Key details

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.
