About me

Your Basingstoke Hypnotherapist

As an experienced Clinical Hypnotherapist and Hypno NLP practitioner, I am trained in both clinical and client centred hypnotherapy, offering the best possible service to my clients. I am based in Basingstoke and serve the North Hampshire area.

I have been studying Positive Psychology and the field of individual personal development for over 25 years. Positive Psychology is the field of Psychology that helps develop personal well-being and happiness. I believe a combination of clinical and client centred Hypnotherapy treatments can greatly enhance your personal well-being using tried and tested scientifically proven principles.

I specialise in weight loss and have had terrific success helping my clients take control of their eating habits with the hypno gastric band or sometimes described as Gastric band Hypnotherapy.

There are so many conditions that can be overcome by the application of hypnosis techniques, so I look forward to us meeting and discussing your personal challenges in complete confidence of coarse.

What you can expect from me:

  • A safe and friendly environment to get to know each other.
  • To discover the underlying cause of your issue in a pleasurably manner.
  • To help you resolve your issue in a way that is acceptable to you.
  • A professional and discrete service.

The whole process is quite straightforward and you will be provided with free Hypnotic recordings enhancing your therapy and aiding positive change.

I fully appreciate many people tend to use Hypnotherapy as a last resort to affect personal change such as weight loss, quitting smoking or anxiety.
I understand there are many misconceptions regarding Hypnosis and realise you will have many questions. It is important to me you feel open, relaxed and safe so we can discuss any reservations you may have.

Hypnotherapy is such a powerful tool the quicker we discuss your issues, the quicker you can live the life you know you deserve, NOW.  Contact me now to arrange a no obligation chat, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

Training, qualifications & experience

My in depth training in both clinical and client based hypnotherapy has equipped me to provide an individual approach to my client's needs. Utilising techniques such as Inner child, Gestalt and various NLP tools such as six step re-frame and timeline will mean positive change can be achieved more rapidly than many other psychological methods.

I am a registered practitioner on the General Hypnotherapy Register and a fully accredited practitioner with the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council. I also hold a fully accredited Diploma from the Hampshire School of Hypnotherapy.

I hold Diplomas in foundation and advanced Hypnotherapy/Psychotherapy and stop smoking. I am also a qualified weight loss Hypno Gastric band practitioner.

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
