About me

Hello, my name is Ali & for over 10 years I have successfully helped clients in my full time practice. My approach to therapy is client centred and I understand that every client and their needs are unique. I aim to educate and empower clients to enable them to make positive choices and changes in their lives. This 'alliance' between client and therapist, at all stages of any treatment programme, ensures that methods used and the goals agreed upon will always be fully discussed.

This approach, along with testing your desire factor for change, has been found to greatly enhance the effectiveness of my approach to hypnotherapy. This enables my clients to change their behaviours on a long term basis.

Hypnotherapy can help you whether you are looking to lose weight, stop smoking, conquer a fear, improve confidence and self-esteem, manage your stress, sports enhancement, soothe IBS or reduce exam nerves. Just give me a call or email me, then we can discuss how hypnotherapy can help you or arrange a no obligation, free initial telephone consultation.

Areas of hypnotherapy I deal with

        * If you have been diagnosed or suspect you may have one of the medical conditions starred above, you should consult your GP for advice, diagnosis and treatment and always inform your health professional before starting any alternative or additional therapies or treatments.

        Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with



        I offer a free initial telephone consultation and work on an 3 session basis, each session being approximately 1 week apart. There are a number of reasons for this; you can't have an addiction (i.e. food or smoking), or a problem or fear for years and expect after one session it will be cured. Also it takes 21 days to break a habit. With my eclectic approach and the support of a 3 session programme it is a highly effective approach. I suggest 3-6 sessions depending on your issues, the number of sessions will be discussed at your free initial consultation and before your first session.

        A hypnosis download is also part of the programme.

        Each session is charged at £70
