I'm a Professional Psychotherapist, Counsellor and Clinical Hypnotherapist and I'm glad you've found your way here.
Are you experiencing anxiety? Too much stress? Difficult sleep patterns? You may be suffering from depression, a phobia, past trauma or unwanted anxiety. Perhaps you're comfort eating - which means that self-esteem is absolutely rock bottom. Heck! Things need to change.
Hypnotherapy can certainly help with all the issues mentioned above, but just in case your problem is not listed above, there's also Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), addiction (yes, lots of those), compulsion, smoking, unwanted eating patterns & craving, fear of heights, and old ingrained fears, to add to the list. Hypnotherapy can even help with pain management.
How's it going?
For some things, we need a little help. With professional Therapy and support life can be so much better, and that includes knowing you have freedom to go into the future with a new sense of well-being. confidence and trusting in yourself. This is how life should be.
Your Initial Consultation is free, when we have the opportunity to discuss issues and worries, and to look at the best Therapy for you.

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.

Driving Disorientation (and related driving issues)
- Vertigo, loss of confidence on motorways, confusion in traffic flow or rain, fear of driving in the dark – all are far more common that we imagine. You’re a qualified driver, fit & well, eyes checked regularly, and yet these inhibitions have become an inate fear, limiting driving confidence.
In Therapy we discuss in confidence your own responses to road situations, and look at any issues which concern you, then using modern hypnotherapy methods we begin to dispel those anxieties, moving on to improve all aspects of cognitive behavior (that’s your perception and judgment in driving terms). Re-gain belief in yourself and your driving skill, making driving responsive, inter-active and pleasurable.
In our brain the Autonomic Nervous system is responsible for controlling involuntary body functions. Hypnotherapy can help the whole system to deal with pain - calming heart rate, soothing thee body, and healing and strengthening the immune system.' Use Hypnotherapy to manage pain, boost the healing process and generate a feeling of wellness. Accelerate your recovery. ...GET WELL SOON!

When do we use Hypnotherapy?
Since ancient times, people have been using hypnosis for a whole host of issues including pain management. In this modern World, Hypnotherapy proves to be equally useful, allowing us to cope with the stresses of our fast paced life, as well as dealing with classical issues such as pain management and phobias. More than ever. Hypnotherapy is still necessary, and very effective
You may have a troubling habit which needs to change for the benefit of your health and well- being, or perhaps a recent issue has turned up out of the blue and for some reason it has become a serious worry, preventing you from living a normal and happy existence.
Professional Clinical Hypnotherapy will help you to overcome these inhibiting issues. Hypnotherapy is useful for dealing with stress, anxiety, phobia, PTSD, insomnia, vertigo, addiction and old ingrained fears. Hypnotherapy can also play an important part in the healing process for post-operative care, calming the heart rate, aiding digestion and healing and strengthening the immune system.
Prepare to bring back a feeling of well-being. Create the strength and surety that you can in fact be happy, and live life to the full.
