“It is not the mountain we conquer but ourselves.” Sir Edmund Hillary
I’ve always been interested in helping people. In my daily life, as well as in the working environment, I am a very caring, polite and altruistic person. I take great pride in helping clients and creating a lasting relationship with them. I am attentive to the needs of others and am always a good listener, qualities that I believe are vital in my specialist field. I have very good technical skills as a Cognitive Hypnotherapist, a view endorsed by my clients.
From an early age I knew I wanted to help others and I believe this stems from the fact that there are a number of doctors in my extended family. As a teenager I obtained work experience with the charity Mind, and I subsequently studied for a degree in Psychology and Counselling. After leaving university I qualified as a Massage Therapist specialising in Sports and Thai massage, and gained much satisfaction in making others feel good.
I have experienced first-hand high stress and the damage it can cause. In my late teens I was diagnosed as having dyspraxia and did not have an easy learning experience at school or university. Through the Quest Institute where I undertook my diploma in Cognitive Hypnotherapy, I also trained to become a Learning Coach. I feel I am therefore the right person to understand other people who have different learning styles and people with problems that are affecting their relationships with others and also reducing their overall happiness.
I have successfully helped people with many issues including addictions, smoking cessation, anxiety, confidence, stress, phobias and weight issues.
As mentioned, I qualified with the Quest Institute, and I am certain that they are the best college for Hypnotherapy. I chose them because of their reputation, the additional qualification in NLP and the philosophy that as each individual is unique, so must be each session. Hypnotic suggestions should be bespoke and not from a book. In addition, I have undertaken further Continual Professional Development (CPD) training to become a Master Practitioner of NLP.
I am professionally insured and a member of both the National Council of Hypnotherapists (NCH), which is a non-profit organisation, and the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC), which is supported by the Department of Health and the Hypnotherapy Regulatory Forum.
I undertake my work to the highest standards and am committed to continual professional development.
All my work is conducted in the strictest confidence. I do understand that for some people it can be embarrassing to talk about their problems. However, I am a professional and will do my up most to make you feel comfortable when sharing your issue(s).
You can contact me whenever you are ready or want to find out more.
I look forward to hearing from you,
