I first encountered the power of hypnotherapy when I successfully stopped smoking through hypnosis in 2007. Since then I dedicated myself to researching and training with the best accredited institution in the UK, and now work as a Professional Hypnotherapist to help others change their lives with straightforward and positive steps that produce real personal development. I am passionate about what I do and enjoy seeing the tangible results that hypnotherapy can deliver. You can have confidence and relax, you’re in experienced hands because: I am committed to the highest standards, I am fully qualified, I am professionally insured, I ensure that I update my skills regularly, I adhere to a code of professional conduct.

What is Hypnotherapy?
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy uses practical, modern and well researched techniques and strategies to help people make significant, positive changes in their lives in a relatively short period of time.
I work with people to help them achieve what they DO WANT rather than what they don't want ie: the problem/s that prompted them to seek change in the first place. This approach focuses on the present and future, not on the past. Clients are asked to consider their preferred future, for instance, what would be better if the problem had improved? What would have changed? This enables the client's possible solutions to become more apparent and worked towards. Hypnosis helps hugely with this.
Hypnosis itself reduces anxiety and this is done very simply through relaxation and visualisation, allowing people to focus on the positive aspects of their lives that in turn encourages a shift in perspective.
This type of therapy is a highly effective and widely accepted method of alleviating many physical and emotional health problems associated with depression, anxiety and anger; a liberating approach focusing on solutions and encouraging positive thinking, enabling people to change the things that they WANT TO CHANGE.
What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a natural state of deep relaxation similar to that achieved in meditation. It is a completely safe and perfectly normal state we enter into many times a day, for example: when we are daydreaming, reading a book, watching television and doing repeated tasks. It can be described quite simply as a focused state of attention. Contrary to what stage and television shows will have you believe you are in complete control throughout the therapy.
