Every Consultation Counts
WHAT IS HYPNOTHERAPY?
Hypnosis is a natural focused state of attention induced by skilled therapists to facilitate positive changes in behaviour, thoughts and feeling which leads to an improvement in general health and wellbeing.
The term hypnosis comes from the ancient Greek word sleep (hynos) However when you experience hypnosis you will not fall asleep, but rather will feel a comfortable relaxed drowsiness more akin to daydreaming. This is referred to as trance - a state which enables you to access the subconscious creative part of your mind and temporarily bypass the busy and analytical conscious mind.
You will remain in control at all times, with your therapist working alongside you to achieve your goals.
Make yourself a priority because at the end of the day, you are your longest commitment.
I have a degree in Clinical Hypnotherapy and Related Techniques from Birmingham City University and I am an accredited member of The British Society of Clinical & Academic Hypnosis. I am also a qualified Adult and Paediatric Nurse and have specialised in Dermatology for over 25 years.
It became apparent early in my career, nursing patients with eczema, psoriasis, acne and alopecia, there was a clear link between mental and physical health. This has led me to study the benefits hypnosis offers, not only to Dermatology patients, but also to sufferers of chronic illnesses such as IBS and Crohns Disease.
Working with these patients has demonstrated the benefits hypnosis can also bring from a purely relaxing and rejuvinating perspective - reducing insomnia, anxiety, fatigue and stress .
I am currently studying CBT and NLP. Merging these techniques with traditional hypnotherapy is an extremely effective way of making positive change.

In my therapy sessions, we’ll work to solve current problems and improve positive thinking and behaviour. The individually crafted consultations will help you “re-frame” your reactions and provide you with valuable tools to cope with life’s obstacles.
