Is there something stopping you from being the person you want to be?
​Let me help you overcome any difficulties which are holding you back.
  • ​In this increasingly busy world, many people suffer with anxiety and stress. If this sounds like you, I can help find a drug-free way of managing your life through ​relaxation and ​positive thinking.

  • ​Are you nervous about exams, job interviews, public speaking or have low self-esteem? Hypnotherapy is an ideal way of building confidence ​for all sorts of situations.

  • ​Do you lack the motivation needed to give up smoking or lose weight? Are you struggling with your sports performance? Together we can work towards making your ​ideal future a reality.

  • ​Perhaps you have an irrational phobia such as a fear of spiders, flying or medical procedures. Hypnotherapy is a ​simple and ​effective​ way of gaining a  ​fresh perspective​,​ helping to eradicate any negative thoughts and allowing you to ​take control of your life.

By choosing me, you can be assured of a caring, empathetic therapist who you can trust to guide you through challenging times.

What is hypnotherapy?

Imagine you are engrossed in a really good film or book and someone asks you a question. It may take you a few seconds to respond because your attention is focused on the action. If this has happened to you then you have already experienced a light hypnotic trance - a natural state of focused attention.

In hypnotherapy, along with a pleasant feeling of ​deep relaxation,​this focused attention can be used to access the subconscious to help create a more positive response to the presented issues. The client is always in control and can return to the 'here and now' at any time. 

​      Why therapy?

​I can offer you a calm, reassuring and non-judgemental environment in which to explore your vulnerabilities. My therapy room provides a safe space where you can safely share your thoughts and feelings knowing that you will be actively listened to.

​Therapy offers you the chance to gain insights into your limitations allowing you to move forward without being held back by your past.



Sessions and fees


​Come for an ​initial consultation ​where I will listen carefully to your concerns and begin to develop an understanding of your specific needs. I will answer any questions to ensure you feel safe and supported. You will also receive ​​FREE guided relaxation to get you started on your therapeutic journey. The number of subsequent sessions will depend on the complexity of the issues presented in agreement between myself and the client.

​Before the next session, I will develop a bespoke course of treatment ​drawing on a wide range of hypnotherapeutic techniques. Sessions will be designed especially to help find a solution to your individual problems. When appropriate, a CD or MP3 file may be provided to support you at home after a session.

​Most sessions will last approximately ​one hour ​and are charged at ​£35 ​for the initial consultation and ​£50 ​thereafter when taking place at my peaceful Darwen therapy room. However, home visits may be arranged, if preferred, at an additional cost depending on location. Consultations in a Bolton practice can also be arranged. Please contact me for further details.

​Smoking cessation - single session £70

Fees are payable at the end of each session; cash, cheque, credit and debit cards are accepted as well as bank transfers.

​As my client is my priority, I will endeavour to find an appointment time to suit you - ​daytime or evenings, weekdays or weekends.
