About me

Advanced Hypnotherapy and Hypnosis for Colchester, Ipswich, Suffolk, Essex and Harley Street

How can I help you? What do you want to change?

Like the vast majority of clients who come to see me, you may well be suffering from some kind of inner discord. Your desires and actions are probably at odds. Here are some examples:-

  • You have anxiety or panic attacks and want to be able to relax
  • You have chronic pain and would like some relief
  • You'd like to travel but have a fear of flying
  • You would like to overcome a phobia of something eg spiders, snakes, dentists
  • You want to lose weight but can't seem to eat less
  • You want to quit smoking
  • You have problems sleeping or other sleep disorders
  • You have to give a speech but public speaking terrifies you
  • You want to be more confident or improve your self esteem
  • You have performance anxiety, whether acting, music, competition, tests
  • You want help with irritable bowel syndrome

Often you would just like to be happy but something is getting in the way.

That feeling of discord is your first step towards change. Your mind and body are telling you that something is wrong and needs attention. And your sub-conscious mind knows what needs to be done to make things better.

You may not think you know, but with the help of an expert therapist who is interested in how you tick and what in particular will help you feel better, your mind will nearly always provide the answers you need to help you so that you can receive effective help with a wide range of issues.

I usually see results in very few sessions. I have a very professional attitude towards my work providing you with a comfortable environment where you can access the confidential and caring help they require.

Self hypnosis teaching is also available either for groups or individuals.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • Member of the Corporation of Advanced Hypnotherapy and HypnoHealing
  • OldPain2Go® Practitioner
  • Psychosensory Techniques and Principles (PsyTaP) Practitioner
  • Fellow of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (non-practising)

I have been an Advanced Hypnotherapist since 2004. I chose this training because I had been on the receiving end of Advanced Hypnotherapy and was well aware of its profound benefits. This elegant form of hypnotherapy enables you to meet with your own sub-conscious mind, to work with it to resolve problems and to understand and draw upon the wonderful creative power and resourcefulness that is there for your well-being and enjoyment of life.

In addition I have trained in OldPain2Go® with its founder Steven Blake. OldPain2Go® is a Talking Therapy that simply helps you to challenge that aspect of your mind which is in charge of pain messages. We discover whether that original calculation of the level of pain is still appropriate, which it is unlikely to be after diagnosis and treatment have been completed. This negotiation with your sub-conscious mind typically results in dramatically lower pain levels or total removal of your old, out of date, unnecessary pain messages.

I have also trained in PsyTaP with its creator Kevin Laye, Harley Street therapist. Psy-TaP is a set of proven techniques, which either stop totally, or allow you to have control over a negative emotion or state. The techniques are rapid in their application and have neuro-science and neurobiology underpinning their effectiveness.
