I have been practicing since 2006/7. I have my own full time private practice helping clients mainly across Dorset but sometimes also helping people who are recommended or have special needs and come from other areas of England. I see clients in my Bournemouth office. I also offer group and corporate sessions.

I am a fully qualified Hypnotherapist, Counsellor, and Business and Life coach so I have several techniques that I can use if you wish in order to provide you with a bespoke service. I am also a hypnotherapy and counselling tutor/supervisor for a national training company called Chrysalis. As a registered nurse and ethical practitioner I adhere to strict codes of conduct and I aim to base my practice on research and evidence.

I help clients with many issues but I specialise in anything stress and anxiety related including sleep problems, test/exam anxiety, performance anxiety, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), some skin conditions, fears and phobias, habits such as nail biting, hair pulling and skin picking, Stopping smoking, relationship problems, work pressures and much more.

I also specialise in helping people who want help to lose weight. I am a licenced Hypnoband practitioner.

I believe in giving you all the information that you require so I offer a FREE no obligation consultation and further information is available on my website
