About me

Experiencing unwanted, anxious feelings that are getting in the way of how you live each day?

Unhappy in your closest relationships and looking for more?

Questioning your ability to go to work and fulfil the job you're expected to do Anxious about how you're going to cope with all that's coming your way?

Or thoughts from things in the past resurface reminding you of things you'd rather forget?

Questioning yourself and going over and over what to do, how things could have been different, will life ever be ok again?
Wondering who you can talk to?
Who'll have the time to listen? Who can help?
Life going OK then suddenly something happens?

Unlike many Hypnotherapists, I have a great number of therapeutic tools to add to your hypnotherapy experience. Bringing the balanced approach of theory and lived experience, I work from a Person-Centred foundation blending Hypnotherapy, Counselling, Neuro Linguistic Programming, Time Line Therapy, Transactional Analysis informed Couples Therapy and Trauma Based Therapy to support your individual specific challenges, issues and needs.

I offer professional, confidential online hypnotherapy for men, women and couples in the UK, Europe and around the world using Skype, Zoom and FaceTime together with face to face sessions on request. As a highly qualified and skilled trauma based relational therapist and coach, I aim to help you to effectively resolve your emotional and psychological problems in a respectful, non-judgemental, supportive therapeutic environment.

I am fortunate that together with numerous clients, we have worked face to face, online using video conferencing and over the telephone, to edit their lives and reclaim inner power, live life by design and create healthy, happy relationships, starting with the one they have with themselves
… So, I know that we can make that change for you.
