“Removing old conditionings from the mind … is the first step toward enabling one to experience true happiness.”

One-to-one therapy:

I combine Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Hypnotherapy to help you achieve your goals and overcome the challenges in your life. These evidence-based tools allow you to reframe the beliefs, behaviours, and stories that have been hindering you. Research shows that hypnosis, in combination with CBT, is for many people, a powerful and fast-working therapy.

I work with clients on various issues, in particular:

Body image
Their relationship with food
Confidence and low self-esteem
Having healthier relationships

Please get in touch if you’d like to book a free consultation call to see if we’d be a good fit for working together.

I understand that unexpected things can happen, but I do ask that you provide at least 48 hours’ notice if you need to cancel a session. Cancellations with less than 48 hours’ notice will be charged 50% of the fee. Sessions include:

  • Consultation
  • Treatment
  • Progress check-ins
  • Free audio recordings

Learn the Art of Eating with Love

If you’ve had a long history of dieting and hating your body, it can feel like you’re caught in an inescapable rip-tide.  You never quite reach your destination. But it’s entirely possible to break out of this painful cycle.

In this workshop, we’ll take a cognitive-behavioural and somatic approach. You’ll learn how to:

  • Eat intuitively without dieting, restricting or binge-eating
  • Feel confident and comfortable in your body and skin
  • Reconnect to your body’s natural signals and innate wisdom
  • Feel in control and empowered around food  

Please note: If you think that you may have an eating disorder, I recommend that you reach out to a doctor or psychologist for a clinical evaluation.


Frequently asked

What is Cognitive-Behavioural Hypnotherapy?

Cognitive-behavioural hypnotherapy is the main evidence-based approach to hypnotherapy. It draws heavily upon psychological research on hypnosis and suggestion.

It partly derives from modern cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) and partly from traditional hypnotherapy pre-dating CBT.

What is hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a skill that you can learn to do by yourself. I will support you in making the changes you want, as well as providing you with the tools and techniques you need to be your own therapist.

By relaxing, picturing your goals, and evoking positive emotions, you can gradually change your beliefs and behaviours.

How many hypnotherapy sessions will I need?​

This will depend on what you’re are seeking therapy for. Based on a detailed consultation, I tailor each treatment plan according to the individual’s needs.

In the first session, I can provide an estimate of how many sessions will be required, This might be as little as 3, or up to 10.   A typical number of sessions is around 6, preferably once a week.

You can speed up the process of therapy by practising at home and ensuring that you’re actively engaging with the exercises.

How does cognitive behavioural hypnotherapy work?

We use various different techniques to help you identify unhelpful patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving, and replace them with more helpful ones.

The focus is on dealing with your problems in the here and now, which helps to make treatment faster.

Will I lose control while in hypnosis?

In hypnosis, you are always in control. You will remember everything and cannot be made to do anything you don’t want to do. Clinical hypnotherapy is very different to stage hypnosis — which is usually what you see on TV. 

You use your imagination to mentally rehearse new ways of thinking, feeling, or behaving. It’s a bit like becoming absorbed in a film or book — for some people it can feel like meditation.

Is there any proof that cognitive behavioural therapy works?

Both CBT and hypnosis have a strong evidence base for their effectiveness. Research shows that combining CBT with hypnotherapy can be more effective than CBT alone.

The methods I use are based on widely-accepted psychological principles and scientific research. Needless to say, I can never guarantee success (I recommend that you avoid anyone who does). 

I work within the GHR Code of Ethics, so if I feel that you’d be better served by another therapist or a medical professional, I will let you know.
