About me

Struggling with difficult thoughts and feelings?

Looking for help with:

  • Anxiety & Depression
  • Grief and Loss
  • Life and Relationship Issues
  • Stress
  • LGBTQ+ Issues

I help people struggling with difficult thoughts and feelings. People who
have to put on a mask to get through the day. I support people like you, who want to grow into their full potential and feel fully alive.

Coming from a place of understanding exactly what it is like to be overwhelmed. I also had to put on a mask. To hide emotions and brave the day.

I know just how difficult and draining that is. Let me help you change that for you too.

Kindness, compassion and respect

Coming from kindness, compassion and respect, we will work on exactly what you want. Without judgment, helping you gain greater feelings of fulfilment, happiness and confidence.

Give yourself permission to dream for a moment

Imagine feeling a confidence so strong and clear that it makes you smile. 

Imagine being with someone you can feel completely safe working
with. Someone who has your best interests at heart. No agendas, no 
directing, just helping you get exactly what you need.

Imagine feeling freer and more alive, through working in a trusting relationship that's totally about you succeeding.

Imagine putting all that old overwhelm and stress behind you.

Imagine walking tall and confident into your bright future, knowing you can 
achieve whatever you set your head and heart on.

The Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council of which I am a member say this about Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy is a skilled communication aimed at directing a person’s imagination in a way that helps elicit changes in some perceptions, sensations, feelings, thoughts and behaviours.In a typical hypnotherapy session the hypnotherapist and client will discuss the intended alterations or therapeutic goals desired. The hypnotherapist will ask questions about previous medical history, general health and lifestyle to decide on the best approach for the individual. Hypnotherapy may be found to be helpful for those seeking relief from a range of problems and isused alongside a person’s own willpower and motivation to seek a desired goal.It is often usedto help relieve anxiety, aid sleeping, help to address bedwetting, address attitudes to weight,and help clients achieve behavioural change to stop smoking. It may also help with minor skin conditions that are exacerbated by stress and confidence issues, and may also be used to enhance performance in areas such as sport and public speaking. Hypnotherapy may help people to cope with and manage the relief of perceived pain. Hypnotherapy has also been used with both adults and children to help manage the pain associated with irritable bowel.There is evidence to support its use in this conditionfor both adults and children and the National Institute for Health and Clinical Guidance (NICE) recommends the NHS should consider referring patients for hypnotherapy if their irritable bowel is persistent and has failed to respond to simple prescribed medicine.Choosing a practitioner It is important to choose a qualified hypnotherapist who has undertaken all the necessary training to understand the theory and practice of hypnotherapy. You can check whether a hypnotherapist is registered with the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) by searching the register at www.cnhc.org.uk. By choosing hypnotherapists registered with the CNHC you can be confident that they are properly trained, qualified and insured.

A practitioner must also have professional insurance and agree to abide by the CNHC Code of Conduct, Performance and Ethics.

Hypnotherapists may become members of the General Hypnotherapy Register if they satisfy certain criteria with regard to both training and ongoing requirements as determined from time to time by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC).

Members are either registered at Practitioner status (which confirms that the GHR acknowledges their qualification to practice), or Affiliate status. Although Affiliate level registrants will have completed a sufficient number of training hours to equip them to commence seeing clients on a limited basis, the GHR does not acknowledge them to have yet been trained to full practitioner level.

All GHR Registered Practitioners are required to accept the published Code of Ethics and Complaints & Disciplinary Procedure.

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

I specialise in anxiety and stress management and in supporting members of the LGBTQ+ community.

Further information

Whilst I don't only work with clients  from the diverse communities, as a member of the LGBTQ+ community I know what it means to feel different. If you’re struggling with feelings of separation and isolation, not fitting in, and not feeling understood, we will have much in common. I spent much of my childhood and early adulthood feeling just that. Thanks to a fascinating journey of learning and discovery my own experiences have enlightened my client work. I’d love to support you to thrive and shine, whoever you are.

You don’t have to identify as LGBTQ+ for us to get along. Having walked that road, it has made me accepting of a huge diversity of human experience. I always come from a place of love, acceptance and service for my clients.

Call or email now. Let’s have a chat soon.

In addition to in-person support, I also offer some online courses for self-study which provide a cost effective 'self-help' alternative to therapy.
