About me

I'm an experienced Hypnotherapist and Talking Therapist and I combine a variety of psychological therapies including Hypnotherapy, NLP, Counselling and CBT to help you overcome the problems or issues that are holding you back and preventing you from living the life that you want to lead.

HOW I CAN HELP
Many of us know someone who has had therapy to help them deal with a situation which is causing emotional problems, stress or upset. I often see people with a range of problems and issues including:

  • Anxiety & Panic Attacks
  • Low Confidence & Self Esteem
  • Fears & Phobias
  • Public Speaking Anxiety
  • Stopping Smoking
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Migraines & Tension Headaches
  • Insomnia & Sleep Issues 

...and many more

My approach to therapy is designed to help you get the best from your therapy sessions. Together we will look at a number of areas including:

  • Events
  • Emotions
  • Responses
  • Results

During your first session, we'll discuss your situation in more detail, including your past experiences and goals, along with your role in your therapy sessions. You'll have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have and then we'll move on to the therapy part of your session. There is no 'one size fits all' approach in therapy because each person's situation is unique and people often respond differently depending on the problem or issue, along with the type of talking therapy used.

At the end of your appointment, we'll talk about what you can do at home before your next appointment. This may include listening to an audio download, keeping a diary, practising self help techniques or another therapy related task. These activities are designed to enhance the work done during your sessions and enable you to develop new skills and responses to help you achieve your goal(s).

In future sessions, we'll talk about your progress since your last session and then continue with your therapy. Your sessions are about working together to help you make the positive changes that you need to get to where you want to be. It's a collaborative process which is done with you, not to you.

THERAPY SESSIONS
I offer sessions at my clinic in Leeds and online via Zoom:

Clinic Sessions in Leeds
Sessions are available at my clinic in Leeds. COVID-19 social distancing and hygiene procedures are in place at the clinic for the safety and wellbeing of everyone and further information about this is available on my website.

Online Sessions
If you've never used Zoom online video software before, full instructions are provided when you book your first session. You don't need to be an IT expert and most people find it a lot easier than they thought it would be. You may even feel more at ease in your own environment, without the formality of the strict hygiene and safety procedures in place at the clinic.

FREE CONSULTATION
If you're unsure whether hypnotherapy is right for you, or if you have any questions, please get in touch. I offer a free 20 minute online video consultation via Zoom where you can discover more about therapy and how it can help you.

Training, qualifications & experience

I began my initial training as a Hypnotherapist with the Northern College of Therapeutic Hypnosis in Leeds, gaining Diplomas in both Therapeutic Hypnosis and Clinical Hypnotherapy. Following this, I achieved certification as an NLP Practitioner and since then, I have continued to develop my therapy skills with further training in Psychotherapy, Mindfulness and CBT. I am also trained in the Rewind Technique, which is a method for helping people who are experiencing high anxiety conditions such as Phobias, Trauma and PTSD.

In addition to this, I'm an Ambassador for the society, promoting hypnotherapy within the public and healthcare sectors. I also sit on the National Hypnotherapy Society's Professional Development and Supervision Committee and play an active role in the development of the society. As an experienced therapist, I'm an Approved Supervisor, providing supervision for students, newly qualified and experienced Hypnotherapists. I am also fully insured and hold an enhanced DBS certificate.

I regularly update my training and attend various CPD courses and workshops so that I have access to a wide range of tools to help you get to where you want to be. A summary of my qualifications and training is listed below:

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

COVID-19
The arrival of Coronavirus and the changes that have occurred over the past few months, have had a big impact on many people’s lives. The constant media coverage combined with the uncertainty of what the future may hold, has left many people feeling anxious, overwhelmed and even burnt out.

Whether you’ve been directly affected by COVID-19, you’re anxious about catching it, you’re worried about your job or perhaps you work in healthcare and are experiencing stress, hypnotherapy may be the help you’ve been looking for.

Fees

£80.00 per session
Free initial online session

Additional information

Sessions are usually 50 minutes per session, with your first session being a little longer (around 60 to 90 minutes) to allow plenty of time to answer any questions you may have.

Stop Smoking and Weight Loss hypnotherapy packages are also available - please contact me for more information.

Wheelchair user access

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.
