About me

As people we are not our behaviours, abilities or our beliefs. However, all these things ARE shaped by our perceptions. Consequently I believe if we want to change or learn how to, then it all starts with our perceptions. My mission is to help clients improve their lives and fulfil their potential by guiding them to use their own inner resources.

With my passion of playing and coaching sport, I've studied sports psychology for over 25 years, and with a working life change in 2005, studied sports hypnosis. I soon realised how relevant it was to the effectiveness of most applications of sports and performance psychology. After initially gaining DHyp(S), I continued studies, gaining full Diploma in general hypnotherapy (2007), with one ambition to make a difference in people's lives, not just for sporting clients but for people in all walks of life.

I am a published author with currently nine books on the subject of personal change and development available in both paperback, Kindle and one as an audiobook.
My next publication is a book for dealing with examination and performance stress for young people, students and performers.

Although based in North Devon, my in-person therapy and coaching work can and has taken me much further afield at times. I have also worked with clients via Skype, which brings a level of almost boundless accessibility!
