About me

Freedomthroughypnosis was set up to help everyday people like YOU, overcome everyday problems. I can help YOU succeed when nothing else has worked. Hypnotherapy is one of the fastest-growing fields of human achievement.

As a hypnotherapist, I work with people who are frustrated because nothing else has helped them achieve their goals. They have tried every other avenue they can think of without success.

I became interested in Hypnotherapy from quite a young age, trying to understand the power of the mind, and realising that everything we do in life affects our future. I practiced meditation every day, looking inwards and finding that I could use this to help me in every day situations. Being a peoples' person I really wanted to help others, and that is where my love for Hypnotherapy grew. Like everybody I had seen stage Hypnosis and wondered why people acted the way they did, and realised this could be put to good use and not for entertainment purposes - THIS IS NOT WHAT HYPNOTHERAPY IS FOR! Within my meditation group this is where I met a now life-long friend of mine, Ray Jenkinson, who for years told me Hypnotherapy was for me. After many years deliberating I took the leap to make my change - the best thing I have ever done.

Watching a client come through my doors, who was unable to walk through crowded areas, now a public speaker; a 40-a-day smoker who now no longer smokes; a child that has a massive fear of needles now travelling to India because they had all their shots...this is what Hypnotherapy is all about and I won't hide the fact that I love it. Hypnotherapy helps all kinds of people in all kinds of ways; let it HELP YOU.

So, if you are wondering if Hypnotherapy is for you; don't stop here, YOU have come this far! Please give me a call and we can talk about how we can help, but also how YOU CAN HELP YOURSELF, as all hypnosis is SELF HYPNOSIS.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained with The Northern College Of Creative Hypnotherapy at Tameside General Hospital, where I gained My Advance diploma in Creative Hypnotherapy.

I am now a registered member of GHR, GHSC, CNHC


Member organisations

Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC)

The CNHC encompasses many types of alternative therapy, including hypnotherapy.

In order to be admitted to the register a practitioner must have studied to the National Occupational Standards for that profession/discipline, or have reached the equivalent of the National Occupational Standards through other relevant training or at least three years of experience and been assessed by their peers.

A practitioner must also have professional insurance and agree to abide by the CNHC Code of Conduct, Performance and Ethics.

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.

Accredited register membership

Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

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.
