Training & Accreditation

  • Diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (DSFH)
  • Association of Solution Focused Hypnotherapists (AfSFH) (REG)

My background was in the Armed Forces. When I finished my Royal Navy service in the late 90's I felt like a square peg in a round hole. Civilian life was very difficult to adjust to,  and I started to suffer with anxiety. My GP referred me for counselling sessions, but these were not very effective for me. There wasn't much help back then for ex-service people, so I decided to undertake my own research. One afternoon I read an article online written by Steve de Shazer and Insoo Kim Berg- who are solution focused hypnotherapists in the USA. I decided to try hypnotherapy myself, at my own expense,  and after my first session felt instantly much calmer! 

My further research into anxiety, phobias and depression encouraged me to become a therapist myself. I enrolled with the Clifton Practice Bristol- the gold standard of hypnotherapy training-and re-trained to become a Solution focused hypnotherapist.

My training was intense, it deepened my knowledge, I finally understood how the mind worked - which was a revelation to me. I've never looked back since, it's been a great journey, and my own experiences help me greatly when I am dealing with my clients. I am focused, and dedicated to helping anybody who suffers with anxiety.
