I have a background in Health, Social Care and Psychology and became very interested in the workings of the mind and hypnosis in particular, over ten years ago. I wanted to know what made people the way they were, and what could be done to help them when they were in crisis. Since I became a Clinical Hypnotherapist and NLP practitioner in 2005, I have continued to use a combination of the very latest in solution focused therapies to help my clients to overcome many issues, and have specialised in treating emotional disorders, such as phobias, anxiety, depression, emotional trauma and PTSD.
I use a variety of techniqes and approaches including:
EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), also known as 'Tapping'
Virtual gastric band hypnosis
I specialise in treating weight problems and use a unique approach which combines virtual gastric band hypnosis with EFT and NLP to help my clients to change their lives and to break long standing habits around food and dieting. This technique is hightly successful and deals with both the root causes of overeating and changes the way the mind perceives food, making it one of the most effective methods of weight loss currently available and I would ultimately like to see this therapy available to all on the NHS. Obesity comes at a huge cost, both to the individual and to society and it is my passion to help my clients to turn their lives around and live the healthiest, happiest lives that they can.
I am also a Further Education tutor with Mid-Cheshire college and run courses in EFT and relaxation both within the college and within the community for learners with mental health issues.
I have seen again and again the incredible power of the mind to conquer pain, overcome childhood trauma and heal emotional wounds. I believe strongly that you already have the resources you need to create the life that you want and I am passionate about helping all my clients to live more fulfilling, happier, healthier lives. I am dedicated to providing calm, reassuring help and I aim to always provide the highest quality service possible.
I am a member of the General Hypnotherapy Register and the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council whose members adhere to a strict code of ethics, meaning that you can relax knowing that you are in safe hands. I understand how daunting it can be to take that first step in seeking help, but I aim to help you to quickly feel at ease and comfortable with discussing your issues in a completely safe, confidential environment. If you would just like an informal chat to discuss your situation, please contact me and I will do my best to help, and to answer any questions you may have.
