I am working online throughout lockdown and the COVID pandemic
Solution Focused Hypnotherapist
Using Solution Focused Hypnotherapy, I will help you achieve the improvements, changes and goals you most desire in your personal and working life.
With a background in the commercial and corporate world, focused on events and marketing, as well as a passion for endurance sport, I will work closely with you and your team to help you perform at your absolute best.
I offer hypnotherapy in Cirencester as well an online virtual hypnotherapy service.
How I Can Help
Anxiety & Panic Attacks
There is a part of our brain that is always alert for danger. It's actually a perfectly natural part of our primitive mind but the resulting anxiety and panic faced by many can be debilitating and hard to deal with.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help you understand why you are anxious, whilst letting you find solutions to calm your mind and mange your fears.
It is all too easy to keep filling up our stress buckets... Whether in the workplace or personal life we all face challenging situations, which in the modern world we usually refer to as stress.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help reduce the amount going into the top of the stress bucket and help you find the tap to let some of it out of the bottom.
For thousands of years people would look out of their caves and realise there were predators lurking in the undergrowth. Their primitive response was to pull up a fur blanket and retreat into the dark. For many, the greatest challenge is knowing what to do when the danger passes.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help you find your way out of your cave and into the light.
Spiders, snakes, heights, flying, sitting exams or public speaking. Many of us find ourselves in situations where we are overcome by a specific fear that we just can't shake off. The phobia can be an annoyance on occasion or a debilitating impact that stops us achieving our goals and desires.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can in a few short sessions cure a phobia, reimagining your fears and opening up a world of possibilities.
From an elite athlete or top salesman to someone just wanting to achieve their personal best in sport or work, there is always opportunity for marginal gain, focus more and go that little bit further.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help you maximise your energy and passion to ensure it is focused on achieving your goals for your team, your workplace or yourself.
Smoking, drinking, drugs - even nail biting - are all habits that impact us in a variety of different ways. It could be physical damage to our bodies, impact on our self worth or the hurt it causes to those around us.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help you kick out the old habits and even, if you are so inclined, pick up some new more positive and useful ones. However, I don't have a magic wand - you must want to give up in the first place.
Most of us realise the negative impact obesity has on our health and wellbeing - all supported by a wealth of scientific data. We also know that move more, eat less is a nice idea but not as easy as it sounds.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can support an individual's desire to lose weight through increased motivation as well as a focus on the reasons behind the weight gain in the first place.
For those without IBS it is hard to imagine the challenges and worry faced by those for whom it is an everyday occurrence.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a proven solution for sufferers of IBS; but don't take my word for it... ask your doctor, or check out The National Institute of Clinical Excellence, which recognises Hypnotherapy as a recommended treatment with a 70-95% success rate.
You don't have to have one of these issues to visit a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist. There are many other reasons to seek my support and receive targeted help.
Sleep Issues / Insomnia
Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Anxiety, stress, depression, anger, bad habits and phobias... these are just a few of the challenges that Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help you overcome.
With an empathetic ear, a calm attitude and a relaxing atmosphere, I work with a range of clients to help them look forward and achieve their desired results.
Corporate & Business Clients
Would it make a difference if your employees were 5% happier, 5% more effective, 5% more focused?
Businesses and organisations achieve more and function at their best when executives, managers and teams are focused and emotionally strong.
I can be part of your in-house team, ensuring you are supporting your staff and your own mental health. Though able to support all sectors, I am particularly passionate about supporting #eventprofs and #associationprofs.
Athletes and Elite Performers
Whether you are looking to achieve marginal gains or prepare for a big race / event, I can support you - as I have been there myself.
I work with individuals and teams looking to go further and achieve more. This can range from the elite medal chaser to the hobbyist looking for a personal best.
You know that you must train your body, eat well and get plenty of rest to win. Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can ensure your mind is just as well prepared.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy...
Is a gentle and therapeutic way to overcome a range of challenges.
Is an ideal way to increase motivation, focus and develop positive habits.
Is forward looking and based on your goals and needs.
Is regulated and supported by a wealth of scientific research.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy...
Is not stage hypnosis - I can't make you cluck like a chicken!
Is not going to create a trance from which you cannot wake.
Is not impossible for you - anyone can benefit with the right mindset.
Is not worth your money if you don't want to be a part of the process.
Is not going to work if you don't want to change.
My practice did not need to switch to online services because it was always set up to provide them. Using the latest technology and virtual therapy rooms, I provide comfortable, secure and successful online hypnotherapy. You simply need access to a laptop, tablet or smart phone.
This allows me to work with individuals and business anywhere in the world as well as offering hypnotherapy in Cirencester for traditional face to face therapy. Read more about online hypnotherapy here.

After 20 plus years working in the global business event and travel industry, primarily in roles focused on PR and communications, I decided to realise a long term goal during the 2020 COVID pandemic and open a Solution Focused Hypnotherapy practice. From the outset I wanted to provide both a local and online service to maximise access for clients, no matter their location.
With experience of the corporate world as well as a passion for endurance sport, I wanted to combine historic skills and passions with my desire to work with and help people overcome challenges and achieve their own goals. I have personal experience of the power and success of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy and want nothing more than to share that with others.
I am training with the CPHT Bristol, the UK's leading provider of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy training. I am fully insured and am a student member of the National Council for Hypnotherapy and the Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy.
