I initially studied Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy in the 1990's before studying to qualify as an Audiologist.
Following 13 years in Audiology, I found myself looking for new challenges and once again turned towards the world of the mind, and mental performance.
I am a Certified and Accredited Hypnotherapist & NLP Master Practitioner Coach, NLP Master Practitioner Coach, A Mindfulness Coach, Kinetic Shift & Swan Protocol Practitioner, and am continuing my own development, currently studying for an additional diploma in mindfulness based cognitive behavioural therapy.
I am a member of:
National Hypnotherapy Society
BAThH - British Association of Therapeutic Hypnotists & NLP Practitioners
I am based just outside Cheltenham, Gloucestershire and am fully Enhanced DBS/CRB checked and Insured.
I also work within the world of motorsport, with experience in working in series such as F1, BRDC F4, Renault Clio Cup UK, British Superbikes, WSBK World Supersport, and Karting helping develop and strengthen mental skills.

The most common questions I get asked:
Q1. How many appointments will I need?
This is the most common question - "how many sessions do I need, or how long will it take."
I usually advise that it could take unto 3 or 4 sessions, although the more normally is transpires to be your initial appointment plus one full session. Appointments vary in length. Some will be an hour, others can stretch to 90 minutes to 2 hours.
It's important that by the end of the first appointment, you see a way forward and really feel change is possible, then in your first full session, we do some "change work".
I want people to find their own momentum and both have and feel the control they have in their lives. By the end of the first full session (the second session) most people have this. Some I never see again after this, but I will always "follow up" to see how you're are progressing.
Q2. What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a pleasant, relaxed state of increased concentration and focus. Hypnosis is a way of "talking" to the subconscious mind, and it can occur at many levels, from "eyes open" suggestion to light trance to deep trance.
Q3. I don't think I can be hypnotised / I don't believe in hypnosis
Hypnosis is a state. It is measurable in an EEG and also fMRI scans, it also has outward physical signs.
If someone doesn't want to be hypnotised, they won't. Simple as that. However, if you come to see me (a hypnotist) we can assume you are at least open to the possibility. Hypnosis can develop over time so we may start with some suggestion tests and light trance. Over the next sessions, your ability to achieve a deeper sense of hypnosis usually improves.
Hypnosis is not something to "believe" in. It is a state. It is not a state that can fully be defined, but belief is not required. A desire to change and willingness to accept the hypnotic process is.
Some people are more susceptible to hypnosis than others. Some people will go easier into hypnosis. This is something we will test at the first session, although by seeking hypnotherapy, most people are engaged and willing.
Q4. Is Hypnotherapy Effective?
Although results cannot be guaranteed, during our sessions, we will establish goals and criteria to measure your success and how you will know when you have achieved your successful outcome. All people are different and you will need a positive desire to change.
