If you, or someone you know is currently suffering from Anxiety, Depression, Grief, fears and Phobias or are in Pain mentally, physically or emotionally, then you will know only too well how miserable and debilitating it can be.

I have been successfully treating clients of all ages at my private practice in Hadleigh near Benfleet Essex for over 13 years now and I am highly trained in many different therapies to ensure you receive the correct treatment at all times.

I am able to offer both Day or Evening appointments and most Saturdays at no extra cost. This helps to keep client appointment waiting times to a minimum. After all, Why would you want to suffer a day longer than you had to?

BWRT® stands for BrainWorking Recursive Therapy and is a model of psychotherapy created in 2011 by Terence Watts, a UK psychotherapist, author and trainer. BWRT® manages the anxiety, panic attack, fear, urge or other uncomfortable or unwanted response at source so you don't have to try to make it happen - BWRT® does that for you, and in the majority of cases, the troubling symptom is never experienced again! Even better, a lot of the time the work is completed in three sessions or less.

Over the past 13 years that I have been in private practice, I have successfully helped literally thousands of adults and children with so many different issues for example:

Quit Smoking, PTSD, Alcoholism, Blushing, Anxiety, Exam nerves, Weight loss/control, Panic Attacks, Fears and Phobias, Self Harming, sexual problems, relationship issues and so much more.

Please feel to free to contact me in confidence to see how Hypnotherapy can help you.

Please remember, it's never too late to change.
