Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
The General Hypnotherapy Register
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.
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
- Generalised anxiety disorder
- Social anxiety
- Sexual trauma and abuse
- Domestic abuse
- Migraines and headaches
I have undertaken specialist training in working with clients who have experienced child abuse and sexual violence. I understand how difficult it can be to make the first contact with a therapist and begin therapy, and will do my utmost to be as sensitive as possible.
Appointment times are flexible, and are available in the evenings and weekends. Session fees are listed below.
- Initial assessment session: £40
This is an opportunity for us to meet and find out how we can work together. I can tell you more about the types of therapies that I offer and we can discuss how many sessions you may need. There is no obligation to book any further sessions. All clients are given a relaxation CD.
ALL OTHER SESSIONS
All sessions last up to an hour and are for an individual.
- Session fees: £40 (payable at first session or beforehand by bank transfer)
- Six sessions: £200 (payable at first session or beforehand by bank transfer)

Sessions take place at the Health Dispensary, Neath, which has safe, secure and private rooms for us to use. I also offer sessions by telephone and online, and, where appropriate, home visits.
Home visits can be arranged where suitable and necessary. Please contact me to discuss.
