The World Health Orgnaisation has described stress as ‘the heath epidemic of the 21st century’ and this is certainly echoed in my practice with the clients I see.

In 2013, there were 8.2 million cases of anxiety in the UK with women twice as likely to be sufferers than men.  Everybody feels anxious or stressed at times; starting a new job, meeting the future in-laws, waiting for the examiner on your driving test.  Anxiety becomes a problem when it has a negative impact on your life.  Fortunately, trauma, anxiety and stress respond very well to therapy, so there is no need to suffer.

Weight Management

Wouldn’t it be great if we could just go to sleep at night and wake up the following day at our perfect weight.  Unfortunately, that still isnt possible but therapy is a great alternative!

Diets work on the body, not the mind. As soon as you stop dieting, the weight piles back on and often lots more besides.

With therapy, there is no dieting, no starving, no going without.  Working with your own mind and body, making small but significant changes  can make a huge difference.  Steady, gradual weight loss that stays off.

Smoking Cessation

There’s no doubt about it, Smoking Kills!  Smoking related illnesses account for 120,000 deaths a year in the UK alone and approximately 70% of smokers say they would like to quit. So, why don’t they?

They don’t because they think they can’t. They feel hopelessly addicted to nicotine.

Some even say they enjoy it. I remember saying it myself!  However, it is possible to give up and give it up for good.

Together, we can help you stop and give you a healthier, wealthier, smoke-free future.

Sleep Issues

Whether you have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep, hypnotherapy can help.

Fears & Phobias

From Aardwarks to Zebras and everything in between, fears and phobias can often be resolved in one session.

Pain & IBS

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence recommend hypnotherapy for IBS. Don’t suffer with IBS or pain any longer.


Do you often feel that there must be more to life or that you are not fulfilling your goals.  Coaching could be the answer.
