About me

I qualified as a Hypnotherapist and Brief Solution Focused Therapist back in 2003, since when I have thoroughly enjoyed helping hundreds of clients turn their lives around. Sometimes it can be as simple as curing insomnia - once the client is sleeping well, they find they can really enjoy life again. My training and experience with anxiety, phobias and panic attacks means I can help you to quickly engage with life again with a calm confidence. Often just a few sessions are all that is needed. Social anxiety and blushing can become a fading memory as you step out with greater energy and enthusiasm.

Smoking cessation and weightloss are also specialities dear to my heart, your health and overall wellness are my aim.

I also run Mindful Relaxation and stress management courses and workshops for the corporate world and at the clinic, and Body Blitz course for weight management.

I work mainly from a beautiful 17th century building, Sussex Osteopath & Complementary Health Clinic, in Hurstpierpoint, but I also see clients in Haywards Heath, Balcombe, or at their place of work.

Member organisations


The General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR)

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.
