I first became interested in hypnotherapy as a way of dealing with the anxiety, depression, pain, and fatigue that were disabling me due to Fibromyalgia. I had been suffering for years and had been forced to give up my career as a Primary school teacher. I moved back into my parents' house where I spent every day in bed or confined to the sofa and rarely went out. I knew I had to do something to help myself.
I started by downloading generic MP3 hypnotherapy recordings. I found that they helped a little in assisting me to control my pain and anxiety, but not enough. So, I decided to study hypnotherapy for myself and began to write and record my own MP3s, which I tailored to myself and found far more effective. I also learned self-hypnosis which I could use anytime and anywhere and started practising it daily. I was feeling so much better and realised that if hypnotherapy could help me, it could help many others, too. So, I took a course in hypnotherapy and after months of study, finally received my initial Hypnotherapy diploma in 2016.
I also studied Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), again, initially to help myself but then realising what an amazing tool it is and how much it could help others. I went on to complete an NLP Practitioner Diploma.
From October 2017 I spent ten months studying with Adam Eason at the Anglo European College of Therapeutic Hypnosis in Bournemouth where I earned my Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma (HPD) from the NCH. This is a recognised qualification by the NCFE and considered the best diploma in hypnotherapy.
I use a combination of NLP, hypnotherapy, CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and life coaching to help people overcome anxiety and develop their self-confidence. I specialise in helping entrepreneurs and business owners overcome anxiety, imposter syndrome, blocks and limiting beliefs so they can achieve their goals. I have built my own business despite a history of severe anxiety, so I completely understand the struggle. However, I know it's possible to change and if I can do it, I know you can, too.
