About me

My journey began around 12 years ago, after a serious accident left me dependent upon strong painkillers and feeling very low. I discovered the healing power of breath and began a journey to train as a breathwork coach. This led to training in sound therapy, yoga nidra and meditation. After a forced career break I had the opportunity to re-evaluate what my true purpose was and retrained as a clinical hypnotherapist, deciding to leave my previous career behind and have a new goal, to help people. 

I regularly attend seminars, conferences and further training courses to ensure my therapy is always up to date and lead by clinical and scientific research. My work is very much based around a holistic approach utilising practices for the mind and body, bringing the whole individual back to a natural state of balance and happiness. I believe key to this is allowing you to have an understanding of the science behind why you might be experiencing life in the way in which you are. We are not broken and do not need to be “fixed”, I will lead you on a journey to be the best version of you that you can possibly be. A happier, healthier you.

I am a therapist, clinical hypnotherapist and wellness coach, using a variety of techniques to help a varied client base with challenges they may be facing, including smoking cessation, phobias etc. I also am a lecturer for a national training organisation, training other therapists on the treatment of stress, anxiety and trauma, including PTSD and complex trauma. I offer a free, no obligation initial telephone consultation, so please get in touch and we can discuss how I might be able to help you.

CNHC

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.

GHR

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

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).

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.
