IS ANXIETY WRECKING YOUR LIFE?
Are you TERRIFIED that your ANXIETY is SPIRALLING OUT OF CONTROL?
Or is a specific FEAR or PHOBIA negatively affecting your life?
Do you live in FEAR, worried that life will always be like this?
Are you desperate to re-gain control of your life?
I know just how you feel. My anxiety spiralled until i was unable to step beyond my own front door.
Which is why i know that life doesn't have to be like this. With the right help my clients frequently learn how to break free from their anxiety for good, going on to enjoy the life they really deserve and desire.
Hi, i am an advanced level hypnotherapist working in Oldbury West Midlands, close to Birmingham. I also offer skype sessions (subject to discussion regarding suitability) to those who live further afield.
I specialise in helping people like you to break free from anxiety, allowing you to live the life you really want to live, leaving anxiety, trauma, fears and phobias in the past.
I decided to specialise in Anxiety and related problems when i noticed that the clients seeking my help for for anxiety frequently made significant improvements quickly as a result of our hypnotherapy sessions together. My interest in this area also peaked when it became apparent that for many people seeking help for issues seemingly unrelated to anxiety, the root cause of their problem often turned out to be anxiety related!
I also recognise that Anxiety is a growing problem, and having suffered from it myself for several years, i know how debilitating it can be and how quickly it can cause devastation in all areas of life. Which is why i have a strong passion and drive to help as many people as possible to axe their anxiety.
We now know (through extensive neuro-science research) that anxiety and pain are created in similar ways within the brain and for this reason i also work with people to help them to kill their pain for good through the use of Oldpain2Go. I have been privileged to train in this pain reduction/removal technique which is sweeping the world, significantly reducing and in many cases, completely removing chronic pain. I am an approved practitioner in this therapy so please visit my website for more information on OldPain2Go.
Other areas i work in include weight loss and management, stop smoking for good, comfortable birthing, addictions, habits, IBS and much more.
I have had the huge privilege of working with many people during my career and my work with them has helped them to achieve amazing results, bringing about positive changes, often in many areas in their lives.
I hold the highest accolade one can hold in hypnotherapy, this being the Advanced Diploma in Hypnotherapy, and have completed extended training since qualifying as an accredited hypnotherapist. Hypnotherapy encourages us to think about things differently, maybe giving us a different perspective on life. Many of my clients have been amazed at how they have asked me for help in one area of their life, yet have felt the positive benefits seeping into many other aspects of their lives. How can hypnotherapy help you?
Hypnotherapy never ceases to amaze me in what it can, and does achieve in enabling people to change their lives in such positive ways. So many people have been so pleasantly surprised by just how much they have achieved through the use of hypnotherapy during our sessions.
I became interested in hypnotherapy initially after discovering its benefits for myself. I went through a very difficult time in my own life and found hypnotherapy very helpful in my recovery. I then experienced a most amazing 'hypnobirth' which showed me just how powerful hypnosis can be. It was then that i decided that i had to spread the word and felt truly compelled to help others to enjoy the wonderful benefits of hypnotherapy. I trained as a hypnotherapist and feel that i am doing the very thing i was put on the planet to do and am loving it!
The hypnotic state is a very natural state for us to enter into and one which we naturally experience throughout the day. You know that feeling when you're about to drop off to sleep at night? Or when you're so engrossed in a book that you forget about everything going on around you? Or when you're driving and stop at the traffic lights, then begin to daydream? They are all the same kind of state that you will experience during hypnosis. You remain in complete control at all times during the session, fully aware of what is being said. Many of my clients have described hypnotherapy as a very pleasant, relaxing and enjoyable experience.
I offer a free, no obligation telephone consultation of upto 30 minutes which can be pre-arranged to fit around your schedule. During this discussion we will discuss the presenting issue and i will advise you on how i can help and the number of sessions it is likely you will need. We will also talk about how hypnotherapy works and i will answer any questions or queries you may have before you decide if you would like to go ahead with the therapy.
Our sessions together last around 1 hour during which you will be encouraged to make yourself comfortable while i guide you into a relaxed state before beginning to work on the presenting issues. After the session we will discuss how you felt it went and arrange further sessions if needed. I am happy for clients to contact me by e-mail or phone in between sessions if they have any queries or questions, and encourage them to update me on their progress. Sessions are usually a week or two apart, though this varies due to client preferences, the nature of the initial problem and also the stage of therapy.
I am also happy to offer double appointments which last two hours long. These are very popular with those who have further to travel to me, and with people who struggle to find time to attend several regular appointments. If this is of interest to you, please contact me to discuss it further.

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.
£60.00 per session.
Each session lasts around 1 hour.
Double sessions are available in some cases lasting 2 hours. Please contact me to discuss this further if it is something of interest to you.
Many clients require around 2-4 sessions, though this can vary greatly so i always discuss how many sessions you are likely to need during our initial telephone consultation and then in more detail at our first appointment.
I am based just off the Wolverhampton Road, a few minutes drive away from M5 junctions 2 and 3 and within easy reach of Rowley regis train station. My practice is within easy reach of Halesowen, Dudley, Oldbury, Birmingham and many other surrounding areas, with many major bus routes running very close by and within short walking distance.
There is free on street parking surrounding the practice if you are travelling by car.
The venue i use for most of my sessions (other than home visits) is a very pleasant and comfortable therapy room in a relaxed setting. The room is accessed by a couple of steps so please let me know if you have any mobility issues so that we can discuss, and work around this.
I may be able to offer home visits for those who are unable to travel to me due to medical conditions. I can only offer this service to people local to Oldbury B68 and may need to charge extra for the sessions to cover travel expenses. Please let me know if you would like to be considered for this option so that we can discuss matters further.
