I specialize in helping people Cope with Stress overload, with symptoms of Anxiety, Depression, Low self-esteem, Overeating and harmful use of drink, drugs and cigarettes.
I empower people to make new Positive and Healthy choices in their lives easily, and teach Practical tools to take away and use independently.
I am based in Ashby de la Zouch on Leicestershire/ Derbyshire border and Hinckley in Leicestershire. I have had 12 years' of my own experience of stressful corporate work environments, and over 8 years experience of helping people cope with stress.
I utilise Hypnotherapy, CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), NLP, EFT (Tapping), Mindfulness and EMDR. I am a fully qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist, and also a member of General Hypnotherapy Standards Council and CNHC (Complementary and Natural Health Council), some of the largest, nationally recognised Hypnotherapy and Complementary Therapy professional bodies. I am listed on the General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR).
Training, qualifications & experience
I have been trained at Stop Partnership in Redditch, and now hold the following qualifications:
Clinical Hypnotherapist & NLP Practitioner (DHyp)

I am a registered member of GHR and CNHC, some of the largest Hypnotherapy and Complementary therapy professional bodies.
I have also completed a Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural therapy and Level 2 in EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique = Tapping), and Train the trainer certificate in Mindfulness Meditation. I have also completed many CPD (Continuous Professional Development) courses, including EMDR, specialist Parts therapy, and Human Givens Institute courses to help Anxiety and Addictions.
Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council
The CNHC encompasses many types of alternative therapy, including hypnotherapy.
In order to be admitted to the register a practitioner must have studied to the National Occupational Standards for that profession/discipline, or have reached the equivalent of the National Occupational Standards through other relevant training or at least three years of experience and been assessed by their peers.
A practitioner must also have professional insurance and agree to abide by the CNHC Code of Conduct, Performance and Ethics.
The General Hypnotherapy Register
Hypnotherapists may become members of the General Hypnotherapy Register if they satisfy certain criteria with regard to both training and ongoing requirements as determined from time to time by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC).
Members are either registered at Practitioner status (which confirms that the GHR acknowledges their qualification to practice), or Affiliate status. Although Affiliate level registrants will have completed a sufficient number of training hours to equip them to commence seeing clients on a limited basis, the GHR does not acknowledge them to have yet been trained to full practitioner level.
All GHR Registered Practitioners are required to accept the published Code of Ethics and Complaints & Disciplinary Procedure.
