About me

I am a Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapeutic Counsellor, located in the centre of Harrogate.

I am trained and experienced in Traumatic Incident Reduction, and Brainspotting, an approach that has recently emerged from EMDR therapy.

I have worked as a therapist for more than 30 years, and have particular experience in working with trauma recovery and issues arising from childhood abuse and neglect.

I also work with stress and anger management; and difficulties with self confidence and self esteem.

Many people find that hypnotherapy is a great way of helping with relaxation and stress reduction and works very well alongside other approaches in tackling these kinds of issues.

I am the author of two home audio hypnosis books: 'Powerful Home Hypnosis for Relaxation, Confidence, And Stress Reduction'; and 'Powerful Home Hypnosis for A Smoke-Free You'; Both of these are available as digital downloads from Amazon, Audible and iTunes.

If you would like to discuss more about how I can help with your particular issue, please email. Or, if you prefer, I  am very happy to arrange a telephone call at a mutually convenient time.

Member organisations


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.

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.

Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with

Post Traumatic Stress
Childhood abuse (physical, emotional and/or sexual) and neglect
Stress-related illness

Therapies offered

  • Cognitive hypnotherapy
  • Hypno-psychotherapy
  • Solution focused hypnotherapy
  • Suggestion hypnotherapy

Photos & videos


I charge £50 for daytime appointments and, when evening appointments are available, £60 for evening appointments from 5pm.

I understand that finances are tight for many people in the current economic climate and am happy to discuss ways of spreading payments if this would be helpful for you.

Further information

I find hypnotherapy highly effective in enhancing relaxation, reducing anxiety and stress and increasing self-esteem and motivation.

I am delighted that recordings of some of my hypnotherapy scripts are now on general release and available for download via Amazon, Audible and iTunes.

In person, individualised sessions of hypnosis can also be a very useful way of finding new solutions to specific problems, even if those problems have been bothering you for some time.

Hypnotherapy for a specific, here-and-now problem generally only takes a few sessions.

However, if issues are more deep-rooted, or if you have suffered serious or ongoing neglect, separation or abuse in childhood; or long term abuse, multiple traumas or bereavements at any stage of life, the longer term psychotherapeutic counselling I offer would, almost certainly, be more helpful.

Also registered with Counselling Directory.

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.

Wheelchair user access Unspecified

My office is in an upstairs room.
