A few things about me...
I am a professionally qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist with eight years' experience. I trained through the Clifton Practice of Hypnotherapy Training which is a recognised centre of excellence. I hold two diplomas in clinical hypnotherapy: The Hypnotherapy Practitioners Diploma and the Diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy.
Previously, I have worked for over twenty years in the "people professions" primarily in education as an F.E. Lecturer lecturing in SEN and Health & Social Care. I have an interest in counselling and I have qualifications in counselling and Reiki healing.
For the past seven years I have also been actively practising mindfulness and mindfulness meditation. I have successfully completed Professional Mindfulness Practitioner training (taught course) at The Dorset Mindfulness Centre and gained a Certificate in Mindfulness Based Interventions in 2017. I may integrate aspects of my knowledge and experience in this area to assist clients.
I attend regular sessions for supervision (a compulsory requirement for all professional hypnotherapists) and continuing professional development, in order to stay up to date with the latest research and advances in neuroscience and hypnotherapy. I am presently engaged in advanced studies in psychotherapy. I am committed to the highest standards and I adhere to a code of professional conduct. I am insured to practise hypnotherapy, mindfulness and Reiki.
My integrated approach is professional, caring, supportive and non-judgemental. I have a sincere and innate desire to enable people to solve problems and make positive changes in their lives. I currently specialise in treating women and young people. Please read my Client Testimonials page.
