About me

As an accredited clinical hypnotherapist based in South West London. I run my practice (Earlsfield Hypnotherapy) from my home or over zoom. Evening or weekend appointments are also available.

Having been a carer most of my life, whilst working full time and raising a family, I am acutely aware of the many struggles and challenges people face on a daily basis. 

Chronic stress can have a severe negative impact on both our physical health and mental well being, over time this can lead to problems such as anxiety, high blood pressure, headaches, depression, IBS, phobias and unwanted habits.   I am passionate about helping people to regain control over their life, both by managing the way they handle stress and stress-related illnesses and anxieties, as well as improving their confidence and self esteem.

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

I am a certified Hypnotension Practitioner, licensed to work alongside your doctor to reduce blood pressure naturally and have a certificate in online therapy.

Wheelchair user access

If a Hypnotherapist's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Hypnotherapist to discuss the options available.
