My Background

I became interested in hypnotherapy while completing my degree.  I put it to the test by receiving treatment for a fear of flying.  It was a complete success and I was so amazed by how simple and effective it had been that I immediately trained to become a hypnotherapist myself.

Specialist Areas

As a result of my personal experience I specialise in the following areas:

  • Children and Young People
  • Flying Phobia
  • Pregnancy and Childbirth


 My dear friend and colleague, Helen Scott, sadly passed away on 6th October 2010.  She was an incredible hypnotherapist and wonderful friend.  Her memory lives on in the hundreds of people she helped guide through difficulties and challenges to become the best that they could be.  She will be missed often but never forgotten.
