About me

I specialise in weight loss, food addiction,body issues and Gastric band hypnotherapy.
Many people come to me because they are tired of being overweight, they have health issues due to their eating habits and they are fed up of trying diet after diet and it not working. Many suffer from anxiety due to their weight.

I help people get to the root of their eating habits. Weight loss becomes easier when we work and find out the cause. With therapy behaviours change going forwards so people form new healthier and more positive eating habits. Many people find that they end up feeling happier, more confident and more importantly lose weight.

For those that want to lose more weight, I also offer Gastric Band Hypnotherapy

It's is not just about weight loss, but it's about finding your inner confidence, finding peace and acceptance within yourself. All of this helps to create a happier you and when we are happy then we tend to treat our bodies much better and naturally go towards healthier food.

I have been a practising therapist for many years and have helped many people overcome their eating issues and helped them with weightloss and have their ideal bodies. I continually develop and improve my skills.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. 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.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
