I am a fully qualified Cognitive Hypnotherapist and NLP Master Practitioner who gets enormous joy and satisfaction from my practice.
Cognitive Hypnotherapy has a modern and scientific approach, using techniques which have been cherry-picked from a number of other validated theories such as Neuroscience, NLP, Positive Psychology, Evolutionary Psychology, EFT and EMI. They are superbly adaptable for the individual.
No one person is the same as any other. No limitation or difficulty stems from exactly the same circumstances for any two people. So you, as my client, receive bespoke therapy designed around your unique needs and the way you experience your world.
My background in yoga teaching before studying Cognitive Hypnotherapy gave me a good understanding of the profound interlinking of mind, body and emotion and the response each has to change in the other.
I guide my clients towards their goals and help them empower themselves to continue without me once therapy is complete. The number of sessions for each client is kept as low as possible and generally ranges from 2 to 6 sessions. Many layered issues may require longer.
I truly hope we meet and I have the opportunity to get to know you and help you become as you would like to be.
Face to face online therapy via Skype or Facetime means getting help for problem issues is available to everyone.
If you are unable to travel to my premises, for whatever reason, it is a real option for us to work together online.
Over the previous 18 months I have been treating more and more clients online. Liaising and sharing information and feedback with other trusted hypnotherapists who use this medium has helped to refine techniques and approach for best results.

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
Fear of e.g. driving, illness, telephones, dentists, doctors etc etc
I offer a free half hour consultation and Q & A session for you to decide if mine is the right approach for you. This can lead directly into a therapy session if you wish, or to your decision to make a later appointment for therapy.
Each weekday therapy session lasts 60 to 120 minutes and costs £85
Saturday and Sunday sessions last 60 to 120 minutes and cost £100
Generally between 2 and 6 sessions are required, though many layered issues may require longer.
Payment can be made as cash, cheque or bank transfer.
10.00 am to 9.00 pm Monday to Friday. Appointments at weekends by mutual agreement.
As Cognitive Hypnotherapy most frequently deals with the source of the limitation or problem as well as its manifestation in behaviour almost every behavioural, emotional or thought limitation can be addressed.
I offer LIFE COACHING with a difference - where you find you are not able to move forward or achieve your goals, we ascertain what is blocking you, and work together to remove these limitations.
