About me

People underestimate the capabilities of their own mind to do themselves good, as well as harm, but what better way to solve your problem or condition than using your own natural inner resources, guided by an understanding, professional qualified therapist.

I am a professionally trained hypnotherapist and psychotherapist, in South Benfleet, Essex, working from a spacious & relaxing private therapy room. I also offer Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) and Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) which are fast and effective ways of working with all sorts of problems without the use of traditional hypnosis.

My location is easily accessible from surrounding areas such as Basildon, Billericay, Brentwood, Southend on Sea, Laindon, Pitsea, Wickford or Rayleigh.

Offering the Virtual Hypnotic Gastric Band since 2011.

Key details

Wheelchair user access
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.
