I am a Hypnotherapist/Hypnoanalyst, EFT practitioner, IEMT (Integral Eye Movement Therapist), Reiki Master and Teacher and Rahanni Celestial Healer.
I specialise in anxiety and stress disorders including fears, panic attacks, phobias, trauma, confidence and self esteem and many more emotional problems including unwanted habits and addictions.
I am a gastric-band-hypnosis practitioner. I provide gastric band hypnosis in a 4 session package. This can also be converted into a weight loss package if you either do not qualify for gastric band (i.e. BMI below 30) or if you would rather not have this procedure.
I have a fantastic session for Stop Smoking that is very successful.
If you want to stop drinking alcohol because it has become a problem for you, I have had great success with a one session approach. This has worked in 2 out of 3 cases. The session lasts for around 90 to 100 minutes and costs £197.00. If you are in the minority where it doesn't work in one session, a follow up session will cost £50.00. Of course, I can also help you to moderate alcohol if you don't want to stop completely. I would suggest one to three sessions at my normal session cost of £85.00 for this.
This session is not for someone who is an alcoholic. Although it may well work, more sessions would usually be needed for someone who is totally dependent on alcohol which would usually include deeper regression work.
I like to work with clients who want to be more confident and realise their fullest potential. This also includes help with public speaking and social phobias.
I also help with fertility issues having trained with Sharon Mustard of easibirthing.co.uk
I can combine the different therapies when this is needed.
I am friendly, supportive and non-judgemental.
Initial Free Consultation
I offer an initial free consultation if the problem presented requires prior discussion. This can be via the telephone, email or in person. This gives you the chance to find out more about hypnosis and the other therapies I offer plus anything else that you need clarification about. You are then in a better position to decide whether to start therapy with me.
Hypnoanalysis - Regression to Childhood Memories
Clients who come with issues such as low self esteem, anxiety, stress, panic attacks, phobias, depression etc., will greatly benefit from Hypnoanalysis. This is a therapy that takes you back into your childhood memories where you tell me everything you remember. As this is during hypnosis, you will remember many things and some of them will trigger a release of trapped emotions. This release of repressed emotions has the effect of freeing you from past traumas big and small. It takes between 8 and 12 sessions although everyone is individual and the exact number cannot be guessed. When the process is over, clients often say that they feel like a new person with a new lease of life. They feel happier and more confident and now enjoy life, often for the first time. It really is an impressive therapy.
Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) (Tapping)
I also give Emotional Freedom Technique sessions on Skype and in person. EFT is effective for all kinds of trauma and disturbing memories as well as for letting go of unwanted thoughts, feelings and cravings. EFT can be learnt easily and used between sessions as and when needed. Because of this, clients can have control over their emotions and, therefore, their lives.
Integral Eye Movement Therapy (IEMT)
I am a Certified Practitioner of Integral Eye Movement Therapy. IEMT is similar to EMDR which is used within the NHS but it is different. It can help with more issues than PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). IEMT has been used effectively with issues such as depression, phobias, sadness, addictions, psoriasis, insomnia, guilt issues, shame, anxiety, eating disorders, stress. It can help in situations where there are intrusive thoughts, feelings and flashbacks. It is a quick change therapy - change can happen in the blink of an eye! It is not necessary that you share all the details of your problem with me if you wish as this therapy can be done content free.
Usui/Karuna Reiki Healing and Rahanni Celestial Healing
I am an Usui/Karuna Reiki healer and you can have a relaxing treatment in my peaceful therapy room. I am also a Rahanni Celestial Healer.
Usui Reiki Courses - All Levels
I also offer Usui Reiki Courses. A Manual, CD and/or DVD are supplied together with a beautiful Certificate. I teach the original Japanese style of Reiki as taught by Reiki Evolution and I am a 'Trained by Reiki Evolution' Teacher. Students will also learn Western techniques such as self treatments and giving treatments to others.
Reiki I and II are short day courses and Reiki Master is two days. Please see below for details of fees for Reiki Courses. Courses start at 12 pm till 6.00 pm. Students will receive their manual and CD about 2 weeks before the course so that they can study the course prior to the workshop. This allows us to enjoy the day with no need to make notes as it is all written down for you. You have the time to explore and experience Reiki Healing energies, do wonderful meditations to feel the energy and receive the attunements so that you will always be able to use Reiki for self healing, distant healing and for helping others to heal.
Please email or call me for further information.
I see clients up to 19.30 on weekdays (I have an after-work appointment slot of 18.30 hrs.)
My Reiki Courses usually take place on the weekend but a weekday is sometimes a possibility.

Regarding Reiki Courses:
I supply the Manual, CD and/or DVD in advance of the course. This allows us to concentrate on the practical aspects of using Reiki energy on the day of the course since the student has been able to read and prepare before the course commences. This constitutes around 1 day and a half of pre-course study.
These items can either be picked up from me at least one week before the course commences and a deposit of £30.00 is required or they can be sent to you by first class post for £35.00 which includes an extra fee of £5.00 for postage and packing/handling charge.
