About me

I deal with addictions, anxiety, phobias and help clients stop smoking and lose weight. I use a virtual gastric band technique which has helped many clients reach their desired weight and keep the weight off. This involves three sessions of one hour and includes a free CD.

I am also very interested in dental and flying phobias. Help can also be offered to clients having problems with insomnia, stuttering and blushing. You can download helpful MP3 files from my website. I can also record CDs to your personal requirements or consult by Skype if you cannot come to see me. Concessions are available.

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.

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.
