Evidence Based Approach
Cognitive Hypnotherapy
I use Cognitive Hypnotherapy because it's a modern, evidence based approach. 

For Treatment of Depression and Anxiety compared with Other Therapies such as CBT
Quest Cognitive Hypnotherapy Clients Improved by 71%
Other Therapies improved 42%
(The Mental Health Review Journal September 2015. Results taken from a pilot study using 118 cases.)

Hypnotherapy is considered to be a safe therapy if practiced by a qualified and experienced practitioner. 
The HPD qualification is considered to be the Gold Standard.
Membership of the CNHC (the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council) is advisable because they are the independent UK regulator set up with the government to protect the public. 

One of the questions that I’m most frequently asked is “do you think I’m susceptible?” and my answer is an easy yes because it’s just a very relaxed state, similar to when you’re reading a book or watching tv and you’re so engrossed in the story that you don’t hear someone else talking to you. We all drift in and out of this relaxed state all of the time.

I combine this relaxed mind with a variety of techniques to guide each client to reach the solution that they want to achieve. Because everyone is unique, I use techniques that are specifically chosen to suit each individual person from a wide range of the most successful therapies including NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) EMI (Eye Movement Integration) and EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique). Together, our aim will be to improve your problem in the shortest time possible.

I believe that everyone has the resources they need to make the changes they want in their life. I can be your guide and enable you to find your own solutions with skilled assistance.  So I can gently support you as you change unwanted behaviour and thoughts and move towards achieving the solution you want.

Cognitive Hypnotherapy works on the basis that trance states are everyday experiences. It’s those moments where you’re on autopilot, like driving to work while mentally rehearsing what you’re going to say at your meeting later or when you clean your teeth while thinking about the day ahead.
Science suggests that we’re in these states for 95% of the time. It's these unconscious thought processes that cause us to repeatedly behave in ways that consciously, we’d prefer not to, like overeating, negative thinking or avoidance.

I know that everybody is unique and so I will tailor our sessions to suit your individual problems and goals and means you could be amazed at what you can achieve by letting go of old habits and patterns of behaviour and thinking.
My aim is for you to receive the highest quality service and for you to reach your goals in the shortest time possible.

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.'

Confident Women's Coaching
I’ve created Women’s Confidence Coaching because I want to help women to look inside and explore what’s possible. 


My Confident Women’s Coaching Programme is specifically designed for women who want to create a more successful, enjoyable and meaningful life.
Perhaps you already know what you want to achieve in the future but you don’t have the confidence yet – or you’re making excuses to yourself for not doing anything about it?
Maybe you’re stuck and don’t know what will be your next step forward but you know there’s more out there for you?
I’ve created Women’s Confidence Coaching because I want to help women to look inside and explore what’s possible. I’m able to support and guide clients on a journey where they can confidently pursue and develop their skills and qualities to create the life they want and deserve.
Many women feel frustrated and stifled by limits they’ve unconsciously put upon themselves which prevent them from reaching their full potential. If our behaviour and emotions are preventing us from moving forward it's usually as a result of unconscious reactions to previous experiences that have resulted in us feeling rejected or negatively judged and can cause us to feel crushed by criticism or blame. We can feel confined because we’re afraid to move forward for fear of rejection or we're living a life that we don't enjoy because we're unconcisouly doing what we think we should to fulfil other peoples expectations. This learned protection mindset prevents us from growing and creating the successful lifestyle, career or relationships we want.
I know first hand how other people’s actions and opinions can influence and prevent us from feeling worthy and good enough. I’ve experienced how these feelings can prevent us from stepping onto the path that feels right for us. I’ve learned from my own experience and from my work, how liberating it feels to let go of limiting beliefs and behaviour from the past and how wonderful it is to develop the confidence to create and enjoy better relationships and be more in control of where I want my life to go.
I believe the process I’ve developed for Confident Women’s Coaching can reveal, gently challenge and release those unconscious limiting beliefs that have been holding you back and restore your inherent confidence. This will give you the freedom which means you can live more boldly, powerfully and have more fun and control of your life.​
