About me

My previous career was that as a medical doctor. I decided to move away from this field due to lack of job satisfaction and the changing environment in the NHS.

I qualified as a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist following training at the Clifton Observatory Practice in Plymouth at which I still work one day a week. I thoroughly enjoy my job now and have never had so much job satisfaction in my life.

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy concentrates on deep relaxation and is a positive and very effective therapeutic technique in which the natural trance state is used to create positive life changes. It can help with so many conditions including anxiety and stress, depression, low self-esteem, anger, chronic pain, fears and phobias, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, tinnitus, psoriasis, weight management, obsessive thought, sleep problems, concentration and focus, sports performance and many more.
