BA (Hons), D.Hyp, Dip.Thyp, PNLP, MHS (Accred)
I’m a fully qualified Hypnotherapist, NLP Practitioner and Talking Therapist and have been in private therapy practice for more than ten years. 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 issues such as phobias, panic attacks, low self esteem and anxiety.
How I work
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 variety of psychological therapies, I offer a calm and confidential space to help you make the changes that you need to move forwards in life and be the person you want to be.
I draw upon a wide variety of influences within the field of talking therapies including Hypnotherapy, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), Eye Movement De-sensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR), the Rewind Technique and Mindfulness, person-centred counselling, CBT and Human Givens psychotherapy. This integrated approach enables me to work with you as an individual, allowing you to explore your feelings and situation 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.
I am an Accredited Member of The National Hypnotherapy Society. The society is the first and currently only hypnotherapy organisation to hold a register which is directly 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 Continuing Professional Development (CPD) every year.
Background and training
I began my initial training as a Hypnotherapist with the Northern College of Therapeutic Hypnosis in Leeds where, upon successful completion of written and practical exams set by the Medical Hypnotherapy Examination Board, I was awarded Diplomas in both Therapeutic Hypnosis and Clinical Hypnotherapy. Following this, I achieved certification as an NLP Practitioner and since then, I have continued to develop my therapy skills with further training in Psychotherapy, Advanced Hypnosis and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). I have also completed training in the Rewind Technique, which is a method for helping people who are experiencing high anxiety conditions such as phobias, trauma and PTSD. I trained in this technique with Uncommon Knowledge, who are one of the leaders in the field of Psychotherapy and Rewind Technique training.
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.

Hypnotherapy, talking therapy and NLP are effective forms of therapy, however people respond differently and therefore results may vary from person to person. Full client commitment and participation is required. Listening to CDs / MP3s and carrying out other therapy tasks between sessions is an essential part of the process and this will be fully explained during your initial consultation.
