I am passionate about my work, it is such a honor to be involved in assisting people to make such profound and amazing changes I have had the privilege of working with numerous people over several years, to help them overcome a wide spectrum of issues and difficulties, (please see the list of areas I work with below), mainly from my private practice at Swans Therapy, in a quiet and leafy area of Queens Park, Bournemouth.

I have a special interest with working with Stress and Anxiety and improving Self Esteem and Confidence issues because sadly stress and anxiety is a huge factor affecting every aspect of our everyday lives, work, relationships and society today. However, by using various hypnotherapy approaches and techniques lives can be transformed!

My Passion for My Work

I do love continually learning and the work I do never ceases to fascinate me. I have a strong desire to keep learning more and more about the complexities of the human mind, spirit and behaviour. I really enjoy continually growing and personally developing myself, my skills and abilities, so I am very passionate about CPD, (Continuing Professional Development), which in turn comes back to the quality service I can then give to you. I attend various further training, conferences and workshops as often as possible, which keeps my professional services fresh and updated and maintained to the highest of professional standards and to ensure my service remains ethically safe and sound, I also attend regular supervision with my both my clinical hypnotherapy supervisor and counselling & psychotherapy supervisor and my various specific mentors, and peer support groups.

You can now have a choice to either relax in a beautiful therapy room in the main house or enjoy your session in a wonderfully calm and tranquil log cabin set in our pretty peaceful garden.
