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

I have a real passion and love for helping people like you to be free from limitations and to allow you to become the very best person you can be!

I have trained and I practice at a very high level with the utmost professionalism. Ongoing continuing professional development is at postgraduate level. I also attend clinical supervision and practice to a high ethical standard. I am proud to be professional.
I have successfully treated many people just like you or someone you know helping them to let go completely of negative states such as fear, anxiety and depression whilst empowering them. I have helped many people so successfully that they recommend me to friends and family, so a lot of my work comes through word of mouth recommendations.
My sessions are customised and tailored to your exact needs. I do not do stand alone Suggestion Therapy, instead we work as a team to tailor the Clinical Hypnotherapy and NLP directly to your wants and needs, to get rid of the root cause and facilitate a complete resolution of your condition, once and for all.
I am trained in Clinical Hypnotherapy, NLP and Psychotherapy, including EMDR and EFT. I am also a Professional Stress Management Consultant.
