Hello! I work in many areas of hypnotherapy, specialising in helping people with anxiety and stress. I also work with weight loss, phobias, confidence issues, dealing with trauma and quitting smoking. I have worked with people as young as 7 all the way up to 88! I enjoy helping people to find solutions that work for them. I am here to help you with whatever is troubling you.

I provide specialist support for children and young people having worked in the field of childcare for many years. I also work with parents/ carers (including expectant parents/carers) or anyone who works with children and young people. I have over 25 years’ experience of working and lecturing in the fields of Psychology, Education and Childcare.

Lots of us experience pressures from work, family and daily life, and we can often feel overwhelmed. I firmly believe that each of us has the power to make changes to our lives and our environment. My goal in life is to give you the power to deal with these pressures by teaching you skills such as self-hypnosis and mindfulness. My approach to hypnotherapy is integrative with talking therapies and I will work with you on a solution that is realistic and unique to you.

It's all about you.....

Attending hypnotherapy can feel like a big step. I'm here to make that step as comfortable as possible and explain the whole treatment to you and let you decide if it is the right thing for you.
