About me

With years of experience and a commitment to ongoing education, I’ve witnessed the incredible impact that hypnotherapy can have on individuals seeking relief from stress, anxiety, and other challenges. My approach is rooted in empathy, understanding, and creating a safe space for each individual’s unique journey. Whether you’re looking to overcome obstacles, enhance your well-being, or simply discover a greater sense of balance, I’m here to support you.

Whether you’re striving for personal growth, seeking solutions to challenges, or aiming to enhance your well-being, solution-focused hypnotherapy empowers you with the tools and guidance to achieve your goals.

Rooted in neuroscience, solution-focused hypnotherapy is a combination of psychotherapy and hypnosis. It uses the principle of focusing on solutions rather than problems to help individuals uncover their innate strengths and resources to overcome challenges.

Psychotherapy itself is incredibly beneficial; the type of psychotherapy I practice is called ‘solution-focused’ and is designed to reduce anxiety and calm the mind. Being future-oriented means we focus on solutions rather than dwelling on problems. The effects are then enhanced with the application of hypnosis, which enables the subconscious mind to make beneficial changes.

During solution-focused hypnotherapy sessions, we work collaboratively to define clear and achievable goals, emphasising the positive steps you can take to achieve them.

Solution-focused hypnotherapy helps you reframe thought patterns and behaviours that no longer serve you while fostering the development of new, healthier ones. Unlike other types of therapies, with solution-focused hypnotherapy, you’re not just addressing past problems; you’re rewiring your negative thought patterns for lasting change.

As powerful as this type of therapy is, unfortunately, I cannot magic away problems, as hypnotherapy is not something that is done to you. Change happens when you are ready and willing to take the actions and steps necessary to allow change to happen, and it is a collaborative effort. Unlike what is portrayed in the media at times, hypnotherapy cannot make you do anything you do not want to do. Anything that is inappropriate for you will simply be rejected by your subconscious.

I’m a firm believer that personal growth is a lifelong journey, and I’m excited to be part of yours. Thank you for considering me as your partner on this transformative path. I’m looking forward to connecting with you and being a part of your journey towards a brighter and more empowered future.

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.
