About me

I believe that every one can change any aspect of their lives that isn't working for them anymore and, therefore, I work with my clients to deliver insightful, results oriented solutions so that they can achieve the goals that have eluded them previously.

I engage with my clients in meaningful ways so that they know we are in this together.   I assume that there is always a solution and I work with my clients to help them to solve their problems creatively, as well as therapeutically.  

I have been in full-time private practice for 20 years and I specialise in helping my clients by providing  tailor-made solutions using a variety of therapies, tools and techniques.

I am a multi-award winning therapist, weight-loss expert and tutor and I help my clients overcome a range of problems which are listed further down this page.

My unique weight-loss programme - Get Real and Get Slim for Life, was awarded the title of Best Weight-loss Programme in the UK in 2014/2015 and my book Get Real and Get Slim for Life - How to Release the Excess Weight without dieting or depriving yourself, which is based on this Programme is receiving 5* reviews on Amazon ( http://www.amazon.co.uk/Get-Real-Slim-Life-depriving/dp/1522837914/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1454341215&sr=8-1&keywords=get+real+and+get+slim+for+life )

As a therapist and tutor (of hypnotherapy and psychotherapy) I have worked closely with Paul McKenna, Richard Bandler (the co-founder of NLP) and Michael Neill (the Hollywood Celebrity Coach) for a number of years.

Complimentary consultations are available so we can discuss how best I can help you. Following the consultation, a tailor-made therapy plan is designed to meet your individual needs.

Both the complimentary consultation and one to one sessions can be carried out either in my office or by Skype.

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.
