About me

As a hypnotherapist, I specialise in providing person-centered and evidence-based hypnotherapy services. My approach is deeply rooted in understanding and valuing each individual's unique experiences, preferences, and goals. By prioritizing a person-centered approach, I tailor my sessions to meet the specific needs and desires of each client, fostering a supportive and collaborative therapeutic environment.

Furthermore, I integrate evidence-based techniques into my practice, drawing upon established research and proven methodologies within the field of hypnotherapy. This ensures that my clients receive the most effective and scientifically validated interventions available. Whether addressing issues such as anxiety, phobias, smoking cessation, weight management, or other concerns, I utilize a range of evidence-based hypnotherapeutic techniques to facilitate positive change and personal growth.

By combining person-centered care with evidence-based practice, I strive to empower my clients to harness the innate power of their minds to overcome obstacles, achieve their goals, and lead fulfilling lives. My dedication to both the individuality of each client and the scientific principles of hypnotherapy ensures a comprehensive and impactful therapeutic experience.

I provide hypnotherapy and psychotherapy services tailored to address a variety of concerns, including anxiety, confidence building, and self-esteem issues. Additionally, I specialise in assisting individuals with addiction challenges, whether related to smoking, alcohol, drugs or other lifestyle habits. My expertise extends to supporting clients in managing weight concerns, overcoming imposter syndrome, and enhancing performance in both work and academic settings. I also offer guidance for individuals preparing for interviews and coping with work-related stress. With a focus on personalized care and evidence-based techniques, I am committed to helping clients achieve their goals and navigate life's challenges with resilience and confidence.

I can offer longer-term hypno-psychotherapy at affordable rates. I work primarily online because this is often the most flexible and affordable way to deliver therapy and research suggests delivery of hypnotherapy and psychotherapy are just as effective online as they are face to face.

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.

Further information

For us to work together, ideally, you would need a tablet or a laptop with an internet connection. You would need to be able to use Zoom, Skype, or WhatsApp (for tablet or PC/Mac). When in a session you should be able to secure the room from disturbances to avoid interruptions.

I work mostly online. There may be extra room costs and travel charges if face-to-face is required.
