I Specialise In:

I have worked as a general registered nurse registered midwife and currently, I’m a sister on a neonatal intensive care unit where I have worked for 29 years.

I decided to become a clinical hypnotherapist to specialise in the areas I felt that was lacking in help and support I love my profession working in a neonatal unit so have transferred my skills into hypnotherapy I also recognise the lack of support for NHS workers as its a hard profession and I understand the culture and environment we work in and have already helped clients that work in the NHS and also offer a 10% discount

How Exactly Does Your Therapy Work?:

I am a registered general nurse, worked as a midwife for 9 years and am now a sister on a neonatal intensive care unit where I have worked for 29 years.

I am aware of the pressures and stress of having a new baby for both parents so I offer a session where either mum or dad can have a relaxation session with their baby up to 12 weeks of age. I have an offering to new dads as well as they often feel left out.

I offer support with breastfeeding as research shows milk supply can increase by up to 70% with hypnotherapy this is important in today’s climate and if your baby is in intensive care where I also offer support to those parents as I understand the pressures and stresses placed on those parents.

I also recognise that support for NHS staff is not available so offer relaxation and coping strategies to cope in the environment and culture we have to work in and offering a 10% discount for all NHS staff.

I offer support and coping strategies for anyone suffering from vestibular migraine as this has a big impact on your life .making daily life difficult leading to anxiety and depression. My hypnotherapy business is different from most therapists as I have taken areas of my expertise into my hypnotherapy to benefit the clients that I help

When a client has completed all their therapy(s) with you, what do you hope to have changed for them, compared to when you first met them: That a client feels they have been supported and helped to manage their feelings and emotions using the techniques and strategies I have taught them.

What worries might a client have before contacting you to book : Clients may be anxious and scared as often they have not spoken to anyone else about their issues, feelings of not coping and being overwhelmed Its a difficult move making that phone call talking to someone else you don’t know and putting your faith in therapy you know little about I offer a calm empathetic safe confidential environment and listen to what my client says to devise a treatment plan that is individually tailored to their needs. my client may have worries of as a therapist I cannot make them do or say anything they would not normally do]being out of control and doing and saying things they would never normally say but in hypnotherapy, the client is always in control.
