I have been interested in the way the mind works and how we live our lives for many years. I also believe that we have the right to live life to our fullest potential and be the best we can be. My fascination for, and love of, hypnosis and hypnotherapy began in 2005 after seeing the work of a well-known therapist on television. This was followed by the purchase of numerous books on the subject and many hours of feverish reading and study, deepening my interest even further.

As well as utilising Hypnotherapy, I also other work with other techniques to assist my clients to achieve their desire outcome. These include Neuro-Linguistic Programming, TimeLine Therapy and Kinetic Shift.

Because of this, it can be incredibly effective in a much shorter period of time than some other therapies. The issues that Hypnotherapy can help with are numerous and many. These include, but are not limited to:
