I practise Solution Focused Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy helping clients work towards their preferred future, rather than focusing on their past problems, through a mix of "talking therapy" and hypnosis. I trained in Solution-Focused Hypnotherapy at the Clifton Practice and received my Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma (HPD) known as the "gold standard" of qualifications within the industry.
Using hypnotherapy I am able to help with addictions, anxiety, quitting smoking, weight loss and management, fears and phobias, panic attacks, anger management, insomnia and sleep disorders, sexual issues, depression, tinnitus, pain management, low self-esteem and confidence, bruxism, irritable bowl syndrome, public speaking, blushing, stuttering, tics and twitches, work and sports performance, fertility and hypnobirthing as well as a host of other issues.

Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy
The Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH) was set up to provide information about a modern form of Hypnotherapy and its associated benefits to members of the public. The main aim of the AfSFH is to spread awareness of the benefits of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy. Its secondary aim is to support Hypnotherapists in their businesses by encouraging good practice and self-care.
Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council
The CNHC encompasses many types of alternative therapy, including hypnotherapy.
In order to be admitted to the register a practitioner must have studied to the National Occupational Standards for that profession/discipline, or have reached the equivalent of the National Occupational Standards through other relevant training or at least three years of experience and been assessed by their peers.
A practitioner must also have professional insurance and agree to abide by the CNHC Code of Conduct, Performance and Ethics.

Accredited register membership

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
Fertility and Hypnobirthing.

The Initial Consultation is an information gathering session enabling the therapist to assess what you want to achieve, how hypnotherapy can help you and how many sessions you are likely to need. It will also help explain how hypnotherapy works and the brain based work associated with it.
All clients are provided with a FREE relaxation CD at the Initial Consultation that forms part of the treatment.
