I work to help you overcome whatever is getting in the way of you leading the life that you truly want. Do you want to give up smoking, lose weight, feel less anxious or sleep better’ Or are you looking to overcome a fear or phobia, let go of unwanted feelings like guilt or stop having troubling dreams’ Perhaps you have a child who is debilitated by exam stress or held back by the aftermath of being bullied’

I work in an empathic, ethical way to facilitate, trust and understanding of what is holding you back so that you can resolve what is troubling you and feel free to live the life you want. The client issues that I focus on are often but not exclusively, education related. As an ex-teacher, I have extensive understanding of the pressures that both young people and teachers are under. I have worked with many young people to help them overcome exam stress so that they can fulfil their academic potential. Hypnotherapy can also be invaluable to help a young person gain confidence and build self-esteem, particularly if they have been bullied or have a fear of public speaking or giving presentations.

I also work with clients to facilitate weight reduction, smoking cessation and to tackle specific food cravings. Since 2014, I have gained extensive experience in working with people to overcome phobias for them to have vital medical interventions, enjoy exotic travel or live a better life.

All my sessions provide you with a chance to talk through how you are feeling and the opportunity to learn wellbeing strategies to help you, when you have finished your sessions, if appropriate. Hypnotherapy is a brief and gentle therapy, which generally leaves a person feeling relaxed, confident and able to sleep better, regardless of what they are seeking hypnotherapy for.

Fees & Availability

One hour sessions are £55 an hour. A free, fifteen minute telephone consultation is offered before the session, for us to discuss what you want to gain from your sessions. Sessions are available on Monday, from 4-8.30 pm, Tuesday between 10.00 am – 1.00 pm and 6.30 pm-8.30 pm, Wednesday between 1.00 pm- 6pm and Thursday, from 1 pm- 4.15 pm.

Further Information

Home visits are available for people who are physically unable to attend sessions at Breathe or Cornerstone, where I work. I see clients at Breathe, Cornerstone and in Heeley, in Sheffield. The initial consultation is divided between the free, fifteen minute phone call, where clients can discuss what they would like hypnotherapy for, and the first twenty minutes of their first session. Sessions last for one hour and clients generally need between four and six, for a “single issue”. Smoking cessation hypnotherapy requires two, one and a half hour sessions. After the second session, an audio recording can be made for use in between sessions, to reinforce the hypnotherapy which takes place in the sessions. This is personalised to enable the best individual results and costs £10.
