I am a creative Hypnotherapist, behaviour specialist and motivational coach, whose open and honest approach results in a catalyst for change. As a former Barclays North East Woman Entrepreneur of the Year I can also tap into over two decades of business experience.

Because of this background you are offered a powerful mix of business acumen and common sense, blended with a range of interventions (because clinical hypnosis alone is not for everyone) to develop self-awareness, engage a new perspective and overcome personal barriers and limiting beliefs. In short, I dig down to the root cause of what’s holding you back from unlocking your potential and maximising your life. Witnessing the changes my clients achieve remains as rewarding today as it did in the beginning.

How I Work

I work in partnership with clients using a down to earth and honest approach. People are individual, which is how I approach every treatment. You receive a detailed analysis and therapy tailored to your specific needs. Using an eclectic range of skills we address your requirements, together, and in confidence.

My busy private practice has grown by reputation, based on results, and clients include both private individuals and corporate contracts.

A personal interest in health, nutrition and fitness spans 30 years. The mind and body are closely linked, so this knowledge is threaded into my approach and I consider your life as a whole, not just the challenge you currently seek help with. I passionately believe that good mental and physical health are the foundations which allow us to achieve our goals, maintain a balance, and be emotionally and physically fit enough to enjoy the rewards of our efforts.

Each session is recorded for your future benefit.

Client confidentiality is a priority. See my Privacy Policy here. I also hold a current DBS certificate.

How Many Sessions Will I Need?

My goal is for you to attend as few sessions as possible. Some issues are successfully dealt with in one session. Most clients only need two or three sessions because my approach is to teach you the tools and techniques that put you back in control of your life.  The benefits can be felt immediately.


I offer taster presentations to organisations (subject to availability) on stress management, building confidence and resilience;  positive thinking, behaviour therapies, improving relationships, NLP and clinical hypnosis.
