Registered Hypnotherapist and Mindfulness Practitioner with Health Psychology MSc


Hypnosis is a changed state of awareness and usually involves increased relaxation. In this state a hypnotherapist can use suggestion and visualisation to promote change.

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy

In CBT we create change by changing the way you think and behave.


Mindfulness is about being fully aware of whatever is happening in the present moment, without filters or the lens of judgement.

Mind-Body awareness

Our mind and bodies are one and therefore it is important to connect with and delve into the intelligence of the body aswell as the mind.


Life is a journey filled with obstacles that put our resilience to the test. I firmly believe that we are not defined by the circumstances we face, but rather by how we choose to respond to them. I have had to confront challenges through my own life, such as stress, anxiety, trauma, insomnia, and the pain of losing a loved one. In fact, just last year, I was able to triumph over 25 years of chronic pain and firmly believe in our mind-body's innate ability to overcome and heal.

It is crucial to understand that struggling with mental health issues does not make us weak; it is simply a part of being human. Sometimes, all we need is to connect with someone who can offer us support and guidance, allowing us the time and space to tap into our inner resources and ultimately heal ourselves.
