About me

I'm Simon,

I'm an experienced Clinical hypnotherapist and  well-being coach who is passionate about working with Adults, teenagers and young children. I believe in investing time and energy into children now so they don't need further help in the future.

Working with children

I have over 20 years experience working with children and young people   different life experiences, challenges and backgrounds. 

Each client is an individual and I will adapt my therapeutic approach depending on their age, personality and challenges. I am able to draw on different modalities and my professional expertise so they have a rewarding, positive experience and outcome.

Each child is different but some of the initial issues parents mention are:

  • low confidence
  • anxiety
  • anger
  • difficulty within school
  • self-harm
  • low energy/motivation
  • Behaviours that challenge

Through therapy my hope is your child will come away with

  • a feeling of empowerment
  • increased resilience
  • increased self-esteem/confidence
  • an understanding of their choices
  • positive coping strategies
  • effective strategies for self-regulating feelings/emotions

Why consider hypnotherapy

Children are naturally receptive to hypnotherapy, they are used to absorbing stories and using their imagination.

It can be helpful for children who may have experienced traumatic events as they don't need to revisit these, hypnotherapy can help them focus on and connect with a positive future.

Working with younger children is very relaxed involving play and fun.

Each session is adapted to the child and where they are at.

I see the potential in each child or teen I work with and adapt each session to their specific needs. I will be looking for your child's strengths and helping them build on those.


You may be focused on your child's immediate wellbeing but may also be in need of support yourself. You may feel lonely, overwhelmed and frustrated at the lack of mental health support for your child.

Working with parents and families is an important element of this work. I want you to feel empowered, positive and hopeful too so I'm happy to offer coaching or hypnotherapy for yourself and the extended family if needed.

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.

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.

Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with

As part of my work, I can help with health and well-being, grief & loss, and Menopause.
