I decided to train as a Counsellor and Hypnotherapist after experiencing the fantastic and lasting impact it had on my own life. Counselling and Hypnotherapy not only allowed me to experience a major increase in my levels of confidence, I also noticed a dramatic level of stress reduction and significant improvements in my general well- being. Counselling and Hypnotherapy were transformative in my life and have allowed me to live a healthier, happier and more fulfilled life. I would like to share these amazing benefits with others.

I have definitely found my calling in life and am very passionate about counselling and hypnotherapy and the transformative and empowering impacts it can have on a person’s life.

My Services

I offer support with stress, anxiety, depression, sleep, confidence, fertility, weight loss, stopping smoking, public speaking, fears and phobias, goal achievement and many more.

Specialist areas of expertise

Stress, anxiety and sleep

I am able to provide you with practical support, hypnotic, counselling and meditation techniques which will aid you towards reducing stress, anxiety and supporting you towards improving your sleep and general well- being.

I am also a qualified Meditation Instructor and can teach you how to meditate which is a skill that you will be able to carry forward with you and can be highly instrumental in reducing levels of stress and anxiety.

I am a Certified Hypnotic Fertility Practitioner which was awarded to me by easi birthing in partnership with the National College of Hypnosis and Psychotherapy.

Whether you are trying to conceive naturally or through a medically aided route of conception I am able to support and work in partnership with you.

I use hypnosis to support you towards maximising the mind body connection and optimising your chances of pregnancy and a healthy birth. I will work with you around, reducing stress and gaining confidence and control of your life. I also help you in working towards identifying any removing any subconscious blocks.

Please rest assured

It can be really difficult to take that first step in contacting a therapist, I know I have been there. But please rest assured that I am supportive, empathetic, understanding and professional in my practise. I feel privileged to support so many people on their own journey of empowering themselves and making positive changes to their lives.

I will work together with you using your own strengths and abilities to help you towards overcoming difficulties you may be experiencing. My therapy room is a safe, comfortable and confidential environment.

I am more than happy to answer any questions or queries you have, so please do not hesitate to contact me.

I also offer a free 30 minute free consultation to give you the chance to ask any questions you have about hypnotherapy and counselling. Please contact me on to book your 30 minute free consultation.
