About Me

As a Cognitive Hypnotherapist and Confidence Expert I’ve studied and continue to study what makes people happy and unhappy.  


I’ve learned why people often behave the way they do and how to help people who want to stop doing, thinking and feeling things that have been making them unhappy.  I don’t judge what you should or shouldn’t be doing – you tell me what’s making you unhappy and how you’d prefer to be and together we’ll use the skills I’ve learned to help you to overcome whatever it is that you want to change.


So here’s the thing … no one is perfect. We’re all good at some things and not so good at others. 

When clients come to see me they’re usually focusing on what they’re not good at although I know that they have many skills, qualities or abilities that they’re not currently using. I’m using the skills that I’ve learned, to help women tap into their own abilities and qualities to feel better about themselves. And because you don’t know me yet, here’s the list of the important certificates and qualifications so you know that I’m properly qualified.

I am a fully qualified Cognitive Hypnotherapist, Master NLP Practitioner and EFT Practitioner based at Godalming, Surrey and On-Line.

I graduated from the prestigious Quest Institute London having gained my Diploma in Cognitive Hypnotherapy, NLP Master Practitioners Certificate and Hypnotherapist Practitioner Diploma which is externally verified by the National Council of Hypnotherapy and accredited by the NCFE.




As a member of the Quest Cognitive Hypnotherapy Research Group I’m proud to be involved with the following:


Over the last few years a group of Quest Trained Cognitive Hypnotherapists and their clients have taken part in a research project. As a result in the September 2015 issue of the Mental Health Review Journal, a peer-reviewed article comparing Quest Cognitive Hypnotherapy with national results for the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) programme suggested that….’QCH may offer a brief effective treatment for clients with clinically significant levels of anxiety and/or depression, widening client choice.'

This is a wonderful and unique achievement demonstrating the robustness of QCH as a therapy model. In an average of six sessions, 71% reported themselves recovered, compared to 42% of people using other IAPT therapies. Quest is committed to demonstrating effectiveness, one client at a time, and in doing so we believe we are setting the standard in transparency.  To our knowledge, this is the only hypnotherapy approach to have been validated in this way.
