About Me and My Approach
I am a qualified Hypnotherapist and have completed a certificate in Hypnotherapy and Counselling skills. I am a member of the National Hypnotherapy Society (on the Accredited Register of the Professional Standards Authority) and I am subject to their code of ethics and requirement for professional supervision.

I have further training in Hypnotherapy for Children and as a Mental Health First Aider in an institutional setting.
I have a recent Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) clearance that can be supplied on request and when appropriate.
I am obliged by law to protect any personal information you supply me with in line with The UK Data Protection Act (2018) and only to use it in the context of delivering treatment.

My academic background is in Social Psychology and I spent over 20 years in the workplace managing people and developing them. I have a good deal of experience in training and mentoring. I am a keen musician, obsessed with Roman history, fascinated by Philosophy, love cats (two own me) and I am a family person with a partner and offspring.
I believe in a collaborative approach to therapy, fully transparent and with a focus on control and empowerment for my clients. Hypnotherapy may be a new experience for you, so I want to make you totally comfortable and fully relaxed so you can experience and enjoy the benefits fully.
