I am a Senior Clinical Hypnotherapist, Psychotherapist and NCH Accredited Supervisor covering the South Gloucestershire and North Bristol area. I am married with three grown up children.
I have over 10 years clinical experience as a full time Clinical Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist. I am very fortunate to be able to work with clients in a wonderful setting. The Old Rectory Clinic is a beautiful and peaceful clinic based in a stunning Grade II listed building nestled in the heart of the charming conservation village of Iron Acton, South Gloucestershire.
I use Solution Focus Hypnotherapy in conjunction with Psychotherapy, CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy), NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) and also Personal Life Coaching. I believe that everyone is unique and individual; therefore each session is tailored specifically for you and your needs to help you achieve your goals, reduce your stress and overcome the challenges you are currently facing.
In addition to being a senior hypnotherapist I am also an Accredited Hypnotherapy Supervisor. This means that in addition to working with clients I am also able help and support other hypnotherapists throughout the UK.
I am very passionate about hypnotherapy as I genuinely believe that it can help to change people's lives for the better. I am a very positive and enthusiastic person and this rubs off on my clients. I ensure that my clients leave each and every session feeling upbeat, positive, relaxed and optimistic about their future.
Before becoming a hypnotherapist I worked within Bristol's voluntary sector, either as a volunteer or in a salaried position. My main area of focus was working with children and young people with disabilities and working with the various voluntary sector organisations who help and support the children and their families. Part of my role included being the voluntary sector representative on Bristol City Council for children and young people's services.
I originally trained at the Clifton Practice Hypnotherapy Training School in Bristol where I gained a Diploma in Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy and also the Hypnotherapy Practitioners Diploma. This is the first, nationally accredited Diploma in Hypnotherapy. It is accredited jointly by the National Council for Hypnotherapy and NCFE. I then went onto train as a Accredited Supervisor at Regents University in London where I gained my qualification in Hypnotherapy Supervision.
I use Solution Focus Hypnotherapy and also include, where appropriate, Psychotherapy, CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy), NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) and also Personal Life Coaching. Together, working in partnership, I can help and support you to overcome a wide range of challenges utilising your own skills, strengths and resources.
