About me

I offer a caring, relaxed and confidential service and am happy to give a free consultation to discuss the different types of help available.  We can have an informal chat and decide together which treatment will best suited to your symptom(s).

I offer a very successful stop smoking session - you can become a non-smoker in just ONE session which lasts approx 60 - 90 minutes.  The technique I practise is unique and has a proven success rate of 92.5% (research results available).

A lot of people ask for help with weight loss and as a Licensed Hypnoband Practitioner of the Hypnoband Gastric Band programme, I have found this to be an extremely successful treatment which consists of 5 sessions.   (I hold 2 Licenses for Middlesex and Buckinghamshire).

Some people will require more indepth help to understand how their thinking and behavioiurs are contributing towards their symptom and as an Advanced Member of the International Association of Evidence Based Psychotherapists (IAEBP) and also a  Licensed Thrive Consultant (ATPC), I would suggest a unique form of treatment called "Thrive" Changing Limiting Beliefs.  This is an amazingly effective form of treatment which can be used to treat a very wide variety of symptoms, conditions, and emotional issues. It is an evidence based treatment which gives the person an indepth insight into how their current way of thinking and limiting beliefs are holding them back in life.  This treatment builds your self-esteem, self-belief and self-assurance, and leaves you with a sense of confidence which you would never have thought possible.

I specialise in helping children and teenagers and find this an extremely rewarding area of my profession. Children can sometimes find life challenging and require a little help to let go of their anxieties.  I also prefer the primary carer i.e Mother or Father to undergo some Thrive work to understand why the child is experiencing difficulties.

        Hypnoband Treatment for weight problem

        "Hi Anne,

        I just wanted to let you know how glad I am to have found you after having had a constant battle with my weight throughout my life. I finally feel as if I am making progress with my Hypnoband which you have seen me through over 8 weeks. Who needs surgery when you can have someone like you to take me on this adventure to a new slimmer me.

        To help along the way I am logging my journey in a wonderful little book which I found that says on the front "I'm going to be gorgeous and this is my plan…" and on the back cover it says"Don't you just love it when a plan comes together". You gave me pink golf ball to remind me of the size of my stomach and I have that in my handbag at all times. I am in my 10th week now and I have lost 19 pounds and dropped a dress size already so I couldn't be happier. It will be a big day when I can say I am 12 stone and so many pounds and I haven't said that for 33 years. Bring it on I say.

        Thank you so much Anne I am so very grateful for your kind and gentle manner and you will be forever be that special lady who helped me get my life back and not to be that large women ever again."

        Fear of Trains, Undergrounds & Toilets

        "Hi Anne

        I am delighted to give you a testimonial for my therapy:

        Today, I find myself standing on the busy Bakerloo line back-to-back with the other commuters, deep in the tunnels of London wondering "what was all the fuss about!".

        Six months ago, even reading this statement would have sent a shiver off fear through my body. I was unable to travel on the underground, refused to get in a lift or lock a toilet door. Even to the point where I was starting to stress about going in a cinema, or on a fun fair ride. Anything that I was unable to "get out off/out of" would cause me anxiety.

        When my children started to take the stairs instead of the lift, I decided enough was enough and I searched the web for help and found Anne. My first consultation was encouraging with Anne saying she could help me. These words where like a breath of fresh air!!!

        I was sceptical about hypnotherapy as my knowledge was little, but Anne directed me through my 11 sessions. I felt confident and safe with Anne at all times and really believed in her!

        My controlling fear is now released and I find myself doing things I thought were impossible for me. Thanks Anne, I could'nt have done this without you.

        Lots of love, Julie"

        Teenager with Anxiety

        "I am 13 and have had tummy aches for over 4 years. I have been to plenty of doctors to try and find the reasons why I get them and I have undergone many unpleasant tests in hospital. However, after every test and every check up the doctors told me that there is nothing wrong with me and therefore I do not get tummy aches when I know that I do.

        I got a recommendation to start hypnotherapy and found Anne on the internet. Before I came to Anne I was not sure that hypnotherapy would be for me, but I was prepared to try anything to help my tummy. After my first session of hypnotherapy I felt a bit better. In the next session Anne and I did something called the Dream technique. Since then I have not had a tummy ache and I have not taken off a day of school.

        Anne has really helped me think positively to overcome my pain and I am very grateful to her."
