I’m a fully qualified Hypnotherapist, NLP Practitioner, Supervisor and an Accredited Member of The National Hypnotherapy Society
BA (Hons) D.Hyp Dip.Thyp PNLP MHS (Accred)
I have been in private practice as a Hypnotherapist and NLP Practitioner for more than ten years and during this time, I’ve helped many people with a wide range of problems from stopping unwanted habits such as smoking and nail biting, to overcoming life changing problems such as phobias, panic attacks, low self esteem and anxiety.
I began my initial training as a Hypnotherapist with the Northern College of Therapeutic Hypnosis in Leeds, where I gained diplomas in Therapeutic Hypnosis and Clinical Hypnotherapy. Following this, I became a certified Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) Practitioner and since then, I have continued to develop my therapy skills further with training in psychotherapy, advanced hypnosis and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).
I am an Accredited Member of The National Hypnotherapy Society. The society is the first and currently only hypnotherapy organisation to hold a register accredited by the Professional Standards Authority under its Accredited Registers programme. All members on the register must adhere to the society’s code of conduct and ethics, have undertaken appropriate training and qualifications, receive regular supervision and be fully insured as well as undertaking regular Continuing Professional Development (CPD).
As an experienced therapist, I am an approved Supervisor for The National Hypnotherapy Society and provide supervision for students, newly qualified and experienced Hypnotherapists. In addition to this, I sit on the Professional Development and Supervision committee for both The National Hypnotherapy Society and The National Counselling Society. I am also fully insured and hold a current DBS certificate.
I draw upon a wide variety of influences within the field of talking therapies including Hypnotherapy, Neuro Linguistic Programming, Eye Movement De-sensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR), Mindfulness and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), alongside counselling and psychotherapy approaches such as person-centred counselling and Human Givens, to help you explore your situation and feelings at your pace. With a special interest in anxiety, fears and phobias, I also see people with a variety of other issues too including public speaking anxiety, confidence and self esteem issues, stopping smoking, weight loss, insomnia and stress management to name a few.
My focus is on enabling you to get to where you want to be; whether that’s free from fear, anxiety or a habit. Or perhaps you want to stop smoking, lose weight or feel more confident. Using a combination of hypnosis, NLP and therapy, I offer a calm and confidential space to help you make the changes that you need to move forwards in your life and be the person you want to be.
