Now that you have found your way here, let me assure you, you have already completed the hardest part by making the step to contact me.
It will only take a few sessions before you experience noticeable benefits.
How I can help you…
Whether you’re looking for a counsellor or hypnotherapist, or you’re seeking the benefits of CBT, Solution Focused, NLP, or Psychoanalytic or online therapy sessions, I provide a number of specialist services capable of helping with a wide range of symptoms and problems.
My experience is based on decades of psychology research, education, training and experience working with people’s personal challenges.
For example, clinical hypnotherapy combined with my unique cognitive therapy programme will provide you with a road map to quickly identify, understand and resolve any condition you might be suffering with.
Below I describe the common symptoms and problems I can help with. If your particular issue isn’t mentioned below I will still be able to help you.

“The way you think about yourself determines everything you say, do, believe and feel. The world around you is a reflection of that.”
Many people try to give up smoking through sheer willpower but eventually fail.
With Hypnotherapy, you don’t need willpower – just a 100% commitment to giving up smoking.
This can be achieved in as little as one session – if you really WANT to give up.
Using powerful suggestion techniques, I will help you develop a new, positive relationship with food and exercise.
The aim is to help you feel confident about your body, change any negative thoughts about eating enabling you to lose weight healthily and responsibly without impacting upon your emotional well-being.
Self confidence is a psychological quality related to (but distinct from) self esteem.
Having high levels of self confidence can bring huge benefits to all areas of an individual’s life: in relationships, career, social life and state of mind – so many people who lack self confidence aspire to achieve it.
Hypnotherapy for fear of flying
Fear of flying can simply be a fear of aeroplanes or it could be connected to other problems such as anxiety, past trauma, panic attacks, claustrophobia or PTSD.
If you suffer from fear of flying, hypnotherapy can identify and treat the underlying causes.
You’ll notice a difference within a couple of sessions.
Hypnotherapy for fear of spiders (Arachnophobia)
It’s probably impossible for you to imagine being in the same room as a spider if you have a fear, or phobia of, spiders.
Phobic reactions are triggered by a fight or flight response negotiated by the part of the brain called the Amygdala.
Using Hypnosis, I can gently re-educate this part of the brain that spiders need not be treated as life threatening.
Hypnotherapy for social anxiety
Anxious or traumatic associations can create a pattern of reaction in our minds.
Hypnosis will help you start replacing anxious associations with calm, relaxed and confident ones.
It’s both a proven and highly effective way of resolving social anxiety.
Hypnotherapy is a powerful tool for overcoming stress.
You can use Hypnosis to get into a deeply relaxed state, release tension, create more positive thoughts and trigger your relaxation response.
It can also help you achieve various lifestyle changes that can reduce the amount of stress you encounter in your life.
I can help reduce your anxiety now and make sure it never comes back in the future.
By reducing stress, feelings of fear and intense worry, working with the subconscious bringing calming thoughts.
You will be surprised at the differences you will begin to notice in yourself – and sooner than you might have been expecting.
Depression can often be a subconscious shut-down, the body’s way of protecting you from further emotional pain.
It can also be repressed anger or the subconscious mind’s way of getting your attention, letting you know you there are issues that require your attention.
Hypnotherapy for OCD
Changing old patterns and getting to the root cause is the key to ending compulsive thoughts, the basis of which is anxiety.
The mind forms a pattern in which the compulsion is an attempt to release or ‘escape’.
Often the compulsive mind has an advanced intricate level of working and complicated systems of order.
It is possible to give solutions to that order without the need for compulsion.
If you have experienced trauma in your life, whether directly or indirectly – concerning someone close to you – then I know just how much this can effect everything that you do.
Many clients who come to me for help with an unresolved trauma, which they feel is hanging over them, may also have an addiction to something as well.
Please be assured that while PTSD is becoming more common it’s also very treatable.
