Areas of hypnotherapy I deal with

Information about health conditions (*)

Hypnotherapy can enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice. If you have been diagnosed with - or suspect you may have - any of these conditions, please speak to your doctor before starting hypnotherapy.


Fees are dependent upon therapy employed, however I do offer a free initial, no obligation, consultation.

Further information

As a qualified school teacher I have a good, clear understanding of the needs and requirements of children, thus I am able to offer therapy and help to children and young adults.

If you feel your son, daughter or any child in your care would benefit from my help please feel free to contact me. (Please note; therapy for anyone under 18 requires another adult to be present at all times)

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a hypnotherapist's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the hypnotherapist to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
