About me

After qualifying in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy I have set up my private practice and regularly attend courses for continued professional development. I also use NLP techniques and tools in my practice resulting in fast and permanent results in my clients.

This to me this is the best job in the world, clients arrive with all sorts of  problems from depression, allergies, lack of self belief, to fears and phobias in fact anything that is holding them back. We get started right from the first visit where working together we carry out the initial consultation and your very first session after a short amount of sessions (usually around five) they are happy relaxed and already looking forward to their future.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy with the Clifton practice and qualified in October 2020, during my training i helped many volunteers all people with various problems obviously with no charge, many of whom were from the NHS as at that time we had lockdown and nurses and doctors were under stress.

Currently i am training with James Banfield at Liberated mind in NLP which is teaching me and others an amazing array of tools to help people quickly, also of course with a solution focused mix. 

Also reading many books on differing aspects of hypnotherapy.
