I am the only hypnotherapist who is suggested by The Urology Department at Alder Hey for resistant bed wetting issues and other Urological problems.
I receive referrals from schools and child psychologists.
I am trained to treat PTSD and am an EMDR (eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing). I use EMDR in conjunction with hypnotherapy, NLP, EFT and Mindfulness
My very busy practice is just off the motorway close to Ikea and I also have a practice in Rodney Street, Liverpool, Merseyside. I am a member of the General Hypnotherapy Register and IBS therapists Register and on a Register of Child Hypnotherapists as trained by Lynda Hudson, the Child Psychotherapist/Hypnotherapist and author of Scripts and Strategies in Hypnotherapy with Children.
I am down to earth in my approach, up to date with the latest techniques, professional and confidential. I try to be as flexible as I can when offering appointments and will also visit your home if necessary.
Training, qualifications & experience
- 20 years in NHS in nursing/admin/management. Registered Advanced Adult and Child Clinical Hypnotherapist. I am also fully insured and CRB checked.
I have recently been involved in a documentary on addictions with a German (RTL) TV company.
Specialist training in:
IBS by the founder of the IBS Register. I belong to the IBS therapists register.
Children and Young Adults - trained by Lynda Hudson who is also an accomplished author on the subject and one of few Hypnotherapists who specialise in this area. I use a solution focused approach for children, as in my opinion this works best. Cognitive behavioural therapy techniques are offered, but in the more ideal state of mind of hypnosis.
I have special training in:
Bed wettingChild tummy issues (IBS)
Anxiety and phobias
Exam pressures and study skills
Cyclical Vomiting Syndrome
I have a special interest and experience in Autism, ADD, ADHD, OCD and other ASD symptoms.
I am also a member of the British Psychological Society.
I visit schools to teach ratio breathing and relaxation techniques for anxiety as well as a trained Youth Mindfullness Kids Program trainer for primary school children.
After many successes in weight loss and hypnotic gastric band hypnotherapy, culminating in my appearance in a national newspaper and appearing in local radio, I now advise other hypnotherapists on this area of hypnotherapy.
My experience in the NHS gives me a useful medical insight and this has helped me refer some of my clients onto other areas when I have felt that their problem is more physical than psychological.
I am also fully qualified in EFT (tapping) and NLP. I have also trained in suicide prevention and self harm.
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.
