As a qualified and experienced Solution Focused Hypnotherapist I help my clients overcome a wide range of challenges in their lives; making a real difference to their happiness and helping them to achieve their goals and ambitions.

I hold the Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma from the prestigious Clifton Practice in Bristol. This qualification is considered the gold standard in hypnotherapy training. I am a member of the Association of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH). I have a full DBS check.

Treatment details...


Solution Focused Hypnotherapy uses practical, modern, and well-researched strategies to help people make significant, positive changes in their lives in a relatively short period of time.

During our sessions, we focus on the goals you want to achieve, rather than dwelling on the challenges you are facing. Solution Focused Hypnotherapy works by focusing on your strengths and skills to help you look forward to the future, free from the issues holding you back.

Hypnosis itself reduces anxiety, and this is done very simply through relaxation and visualisation, allowing you to focus on the positive aspects of your life that enables a shift in perspective.
When in a state of hypnosis you remain in complete control and despite what you may have seen on television, I cannot make you bark like a dog, or walk like a chicken! You cannot get stuck in hypnosis and you can bring yourself out at any time.
