**Coronavirus (Covid-19) Update - Sessions are now available online and at a discounted rate. Please call or email me for more information.**
I am a professional, registered hypnotherapist (Senior Practitioner) with over a decade's experience working within my busy practice, Inspiring Changes.
I work from a beautiful location in my private therapy room just outside the village of Lover near Downton, close to the New Forest on the Wiltshire/Hampshire border.
I also hold a clinic at Neal's Yard Remedies in the centre of Salisbury on a Thursday and at the Wessex Health Network in Christchurch by appointment only.
In addition to hypnotherapy, I use a combination of therapies including brief psychotherapy, solution-focused counselling, NLP, cognitive behavioural techniques and EMDR. Each session is tailor-made to suit you and the issues affecting your life.
Over the years, I have helped many people with wide-ranging and varying problems, not just those traditionally associated with hypnotherapy.
I run an informal but professional practice, with a friendly, understanding and non-judgmental approach. My aim is to provide you with an opportunity to relax and discuss things openly, in order to help you resolve your issues as quickly and effectively as possible, with lasting and permanent results.
The majority of my new clients come to me as a recommendation from somebody who has already seen me and experienced a positive change and resolution of the issues they sought treatment for, particularly those who have experienced anxiety, stress, phobias, confidence/low self-esteem, stop smoking and weight management.
Every session is completely private and confidential. I am fully insured and adhere to a strict code of ethics.
For all new clients I offer a free no obligation consultation by phone.
Working with PSI Training, we train those who wish to become hypnotherapists and also existing hypnotherapists and psychotherapists in specialised areas. For more information, please visit www.psi-training.co.uk
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a Senior Practitioner member of the General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR), the largest and one of the most highly regarded professional organisations for hypnotherapists and am also validated by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC).
I am also regulated by the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC), the UK regulator for complementary healthcare practitioners whose key function is to enhance public protection by setting standards for registration within CNHC. The CNHC 'quality mark' is being recognised as the hallmark of quality for the sector.
I have a DBS check enabling me to work with children, thereby giving parents and carers peace of mind.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

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.
