Fully Qualified Hypnotherapist

I am a fully qualified Hypnotherapist – obtaining a Diploma in Hypnotherapy and Counselling. I’m Registered and Accredited with the National Hypnotherapy Society and abide by their strict Code of Conduct, and I’m an Associate Member of Chrysalis.

I am also a Tutor, teaching students in Hypnotherapy and Counselling for a National Accredited Course.

Diet and Nutrition Adviser

I am also a qualified Diet and Nutrition Adviser which complements some aspects of my hypnotherapy work, for example, Weight Loss Management.

Counselling Skills

I have a range of counselling skills which I have developed and applied throughout my career and which can support clients coming to me for hypnotherapy. I have also undertaken voluntarily work for a National Charity where counselling skills are paramount.


I hold a Diploma in Mindfulness.  Mindfulness can help in many aspects of one’s life.   I can therefore incorporate Mindfulness into many hypnotherapy programmes, as required.  For example, incorporating Mindful Eating into weight loss programmes; and Mindfulness aspects into Stress, Anxiety and Insomnia sessions.   There are many Mindfullness books in most bookshops now.  There are also many websites on this subject.  For example the NHS Mindfulness information site  http://www.nhs.uk/conditions/stress-anxiety-depression/pages/mindfulness.aspx

Hypnotic Gastric Band

I have a Diploma in Hypnotic Gastric Band.  This is an option for clients with a BMI of around 35 +.  I use an holistic approach to assess the route causes of over-eating, incorporating aspects of Mindfulness, and discussing Diet and Nutrition to boost results and maximise long-term success.

The results of Hypnotic Gastric Band, according to the Centre of Excellence – Gastric Band Hypnotherapy Course state that results are impressive – at an 80%  success rate (statistics based on patients betwee 1994 and 2011).  Thus, the Hypnotic Gastic Band can be an excellent option for clients in the Obese weight-range.
