About me

Help over Zoom for Anxiety, Confidence, Weight Loss and more…

You’ve probably landed here because there is something in your life that needs to change. Perhaps you’re frustrated or stuck in some way and you don’t want to be like that any longer. You’ve had enough of it but you can’t seem to shift what’s holding you back.

Whether it’s anxiety or confidence, strong emotions that are getting in the way, behaviours that aren’t helping, there’s stuff that you need to shift or let go of to have a better life.

Are there things that you’d like to be doing that you just can’t? Is there a part of you that seems to be holding you back or pulling you in the wrong direction?

Well, I want you to know that it doesn’t have to be like that any longer.

Things can be different for you and you can start to imagine how your life can be, free from your problem.


Because now that you’ve made the decision to do something about it, that’s where I come in. We work together over Zoom and over a number of weeks we ease you away from those old beliefs, emotions or behaviours and reset things for you in a new positive direction.

Let’s chat

Let’s have a no-obligation chat about how things can change for you, and to see if we are a good fit for each other and the way that I work. You can call, you can email, we can talk over Zoom, whatever’s best for you.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained in Cognitive Hypnotherapy and Neurolinguistic Programming with the Quest Institute (Regent's University, London). As far as I'm concerned, The Quest Institute offers the finest Hypnotherapy training available.

Once I qualified, I assisted Trevor Silvester (founder of Cognitive Hypnotherapy) in the training of a new generation of practitioners on the Diploma course, and I have also assisted in the training of new NLP Master Practitioners.

You learn so much yourself by teaching others!

I have been involved in supporting people to make positive changes in their lives since the late 1990s, firstly using Traditional Japanese Reiki and more recently through the use of Cognitive hypnotherapy, a supremely effective and flexible system that I use to create bespoke, tailor-made programmes for my clients.

If you're interested, here are my qualifications:

BDS (Lond), LDS RCS Eng., HPD, DipCHyp, NLP Master Prac, MNCH(Reg)

Briefly, I have the "HPD" Hypnotherapy Diploma which is the current 'Gold Standard' hypnotherapy qualification, externally verified by the NCFE, I have a Diploma in Cognitive Hypnotherapy from The Quest Institute and I achieved Master Practitioner status in NLP (Neurolinguistic Programming) through Quest.  I also have a degree in Dental Surgery and I received a Licentiate from the Royal College of Surgeons of England (though I no longer practise as a Dental Surgeon).

Additional information

The "Commit to Change" programme

This is how the programme works:

We work together over a period of a couple months, or less if that’s all that is needed, during which we would typically meet a couple of times per month, although more often in the first month, so you could begin to see shifts quickly.

I will send you a bespoke mp3 recording to listen to every day, and perhaps some videos showing potent techniques that you can use to reinforce the changes you are making at a deep level, as you grow into your new confidence.

Occasionally we all experience the odd wobble, and so, between sessions we can get on a quick 15 minute call if you need, to help get through the wobbles or answer any questions.

I am here to support you throughout.

The fee for the Commit to Change programme is £397.

Further sessions

And once we have completed your programme, whether you need to have one or two more sessions (which is unlikely) or whether you decide to get together every couple of months for goal-setting, top-ups or some fine adjustments, we can arrange that and these are chargeable on a pay-as-you-go basis for £80 per session.

When I work

Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri Sat Sun

I am available from 9.30am Monday - Wednesday, and on Saturday mornings. Afternoon, evening and later appts are possible, to suit you.

Further information

Getting to know me

You're thinking about whether you want to work with me, so it would probably help if you found out a bit about me. So, what can I say about myself that will give you an idea of what I’m like?…

I am laid back, and friendly. I seem to be naturally calming.

I will not judge you. Everyone is struggling with something, and we could all do with a little help sometimes.

I create a safe space for you to talk about what you need to work on, and where we will work together to shift your problem.

So you can relax about this. I’ve got you.

And I am exceedingly tall, though you are unlikely to realise that since we will be sitting down and talking over Zoom.

I am fascinated by hypnotherapy and NLP

Beyond that, basically I am a bit of a Hypnotherapy geek I suppose! I am fascinated by the subject and its potential to really transform people’s lives in a fairly short space of time. So when I’m not playing a musical instrument or spending time with my family, you’ll find me with my head in a Hypnotherapy or NLP textbook or going on a training course, to enhance my skills.

I love sharing my knowledge and experience with others, so after I completed my training with The Quest Institute, I moved on to assist Trevor Silvester, founder of Cognitive Hypnotherapy, in the training of other Cognitive Hypnotherapists on the Quest Diploma course and also the Quest NLP Master Practitioner course.

Actually, it was when I was going through my Cognitive Hypnotherapy training at the Quest Institute several years ago that the penny dropped in terms of the power and effectiveness of what we were learning: we practised on each other and on friends and family, and amazing things started happening: people lost their phobias, lost weight naturally without dieting, let go of limiting beliefs and emotional ‘blocks’, and became more confident, assured and self-motivated.

It is a wonderfully fulfilling thing to spend your time helping people to let go of what’s holding them back in their lives. It’s really humbling the way that you can make such a difference to people in a fairly short space of time.

I love this work!

Previous careers

Hypnotherapists will often have had previous careers, and I have had several! I have been a Dental Surgeon, I worked in the Civil Service as a Tax specialist, and since 1998 I have been helping people to make positive changes in their lives in my role as a Traditional Japanese Reiki teacher with an International reputation.

When I was a Dentist, one of the things that I was best at was helping people to relax and build up their confidence, so I worked with a lot of very nervous patients who, although they were nervous wrecks coming for a check-up, after having seen me for a number of sessions, ended up calm and confident and no longer anxious about coming to have their teeth looked at or worked on.

And I have found just what is right for me with Cognitive Hypnotherapy: an elegant and powerful system that is focused entirely on the needs of each client. So unlike many Hypnotherapists, who will read out a standard script for every client who has, say, a weight problem, my approach is to ‘start with a blank sheet of paper’ and construct a bespoke programme for each of my clients, based on their life, their beliefs, their experiences and emotions… people develop their problem in a unique way, and so each client needs a unique solution.
