About me

Whether your wish is to eradicate an unwanted habit, addiction or behaviour, to gain relief from a specific emotional issue, or to simply have more self-confidence to make those all important changes in life, hypnotherapy really can help you make that change rapidly and permanently. I am a warm and friendly highly skilled, non judgemental therapist who can gently guide you into the best life you have ever had. That is a promise from me! I always aim to go over and beyond expectations to help you in anyway that I can.

Although I am a Stop Smoking and Anxiety & Stress Specialist I see clients who have a broad spectrum of issues from Weight Loss Emotional Eating to the Fast Phobia one session Client.

I am a Clinical Hypnotherapist with a multitude of skills in my toolkit to help my clients. My specialist area is helping people with Addictions, Weight Loss and Smoking Cessation. I can help clients overcome a wide range of emotional, behavioural and psychological issues including anxiety, low self esteem, uncertainty, phobias, stress, excess weight, addiction and many more. PTSD and Chronic Pain Management. I also teach you how to manage your own pain. The increasing number of addictions that I see indicate it is the basic underlying root cause that needs to be tackled in order to see permanent release from the addictions. It is not about the escape mechanism in the form of the addiction whether it be smoking, food, gambling, alcohol etc so it is important to tackle these before the addiction can be permanently eradicated and replaced with positive behaviours to help my clients live happy and healthy lives.

Using a combination of Clinical Hypnotherapy, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT or Meridian Tapping) and various other psychotherapy techniques, I am able to help my clients experience rapid, genuine and long lasting change. I offer a complimentary 30 minute no obligation consultation in person or on phone where you can discuss if I can help you and to make sure you are comfortable to work with me.
Further detailed info:
Smoking Cessation -The Successful Stop Smoking Formula that I use works irrespective of how many cigarettes you smoke or for how long you have smoked. NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) is also built into the session for added effectiveness which is more effective than hypnotherapy alone.  Please watch my video about stop smoking. After the stop smoking programme you will have:

  • No withdrawal symptoms
  • No Cravings
  • No Weight Gain
  • No Interest in Smoking
  • No Fear of Failure

The first hour is getting detailed information about your lifestyle and smoking habits in order for me to fully customise your personalised stop smoking session. This is to ensure that it works in the best way suitable for you. The hypnotherapy part deals with the cravings connected to your smoking habit and changing your associations with smoking. When under hypnosis you are in such a deep powerful state of relaxation that your subconscious is able to accept suggestions to live your new life as a non smoker. These unwanted habits are broken forever as your mind naturally accepts a new way of thinking which leads you to become a non smoker permanently.

Weight Loss Package
My Sessions are solution focused on the individual as everyone has different reasons for being overweight or over eating. Weight Loss Hypnosis sessions deal with eating issues that can be related to:

Habits - Stress - Emotional Eating - Comfort Eating - Anxiety - Fear - Boredom

Low Self Esteem - Anger - Depression - Loneliness - Sugar Addiction - Grieving

    5 Hypnotherapy Sessions 1 week apart specific to your own personal issues
    Hypnosis Weight Loss CD Recording (full Session)
    Hypnosis, NLP & EFT used for Permanent Weight Loss

It is not a miracle cure you will need to commit to these sessions consistently and listen to the short recording each day during your Weight Reduction Consultation period.  If there are deeper underlying issues occasionally it may take a little longer we can discuss this after our initial consultation. Most clients however only need 5 sessions to see lasting change to their mindset, behaviour, attitude to food and exercise and you will notice that even after you finish your sessions with me the weight will continue to drop off as you live a healthier happier life. Book your Successful Weight Loss Program Now and Start enjoying a healthy happy life.
