My background is in pharmaceutical research but I have been interested in hypnotherapy for many years, having received hypnotherapy myself in the past.
I have gained a BSc and MSc during my career in science.
I am now a fully qualified Solution Focused Hypnotherapist, having achieved the Hypnotherapy Practitioners Diploma and Diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy with the renowned Clifton Practice. I have taken extra study to achieve the Level 5 qualification, the Advanced Hypnotherapy Diploma. I am also a Solution Focused Supervisor, registered with the NCH.
In addition I am a Senior Lecturer on the CPHT hypnotherapy training courses in Sheffield and Manchester.
I am a member of the National Council for Hypnotherapy and the Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy. I am also accredited with the Complimentary and Natural Healthcare Council, which means I meet national standards and abide by the CNHC's Code of Conduct, Ethics and Performance.
I am fully insured and have an extended DBS certificate for working with children and vulnerable adults..
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is suitable for a large number of conditions and I would say that my particular interest is in anxiety and associated physical conditions such as IBS, insomnia, some skin conditions and migraine. I also enjoy working with young people in the areas of stress and self-confidence.
I can also help with depression, phobias, infertility, self-hypnosis for childbirth, smoking cessation, weight control, unwanted habits/behaviours, motivation, sports performance and more.

The therapy begins from our first contact - just wanting to change that initial step towards a better future.
You will be invited to an Initial Consultation where I will collect some information from you and explain in simple terms how the brain works and how problems can arise. Whatever your problem is, it is perfectly natural and explainable! I will also explain how hypnotherapy can help and you will be provided with a relaxation download for use at home. Hypnotherapy involves deep but focused relaxation which allows the subconscious mind to be open to the suggestion of change. It is a collaborative process, not something that is 'done to you'.
I use the psychotherapy techniques of Solution Focused Brief Therapy along with Hypnosis to help the client identify the steps forward they wish to make in their lives and to achieve change.
If you feel that Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is right for you and more importantly that I am the right therapist for you, then we can book some therapy sessions.
Subsequent therapy sessions involve positive thinking, mentally preparing a move towards the preferred future, and hypnotherapy to consolidate the will for change. The number of sessions required will vary from client to client. My aim however, is to get you back to in control as quickly as possible.
