I am a professional Hypnotherapist, completely committed to offering you the best service possible to help you achieve the lasting changes that you want. I am passionate about the benefits of hypnotherapy and this motivated me to be one of the first hypnotherapists in Europe to study for a BSc in Clinical Hypnosis. During 3 years of study, I learned the fascinating science of mind-body connection and in July 2012 I was awarded a First Class Honours Degree. This entitles me to describe myself as an Advanced Practitioner of Hypnotherapy and a Clinical Hypnotherapist.
I have carried out clinical research in the areas of Hope, Optimism and Well-being and have seen these three areas significantly increase in people through hypnotherapeutic intervention. I am able to synchronize a combination of skills, knowledge and experience and use them to maximize the therapeutic benefit for each individual client.
I am professionally trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). EMDR is a highly effective treatment for trauma and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. I use EMDR very effectively in conjunction with hypnosis to alleviate the effects of negatively emotional significant events.
If you are motivated enough to seek help, then I fully believe that you have within yourself, the resources you need to make the changes you want, whether it is to stop gambling, to eat less or to let go of unhelpful anxieties. I have wide experience of working with a range of issues including behavioural difficulties such as unwanted habits and addictions or cognitive thought processes leading to difficulties with self-esteem, confidence, anxiety and depression. My approach is warm, caring and always client-centred.
As a Clinical Hypnotherapist, my role is complementary to traditional medical practice. If you have an issue and are unsure whether hypnotherapy can help, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Last year I completed my Masters in Relationship Therapy and was awarded Distinction. Why did I take up this study? Because many of my clients asked me to work with them AND their partner! All I could do at the time was to refer them to Relate. I have now developed significant understanding of Systemic and Psychodynamic theory and am experienced and qualified in working with couples and families.
My practice is conveniently located in the centre of Sheffield and easily accessible by car, train, bus and tram. I will help you develop awareness of your own resources, abilities, knowledge, understanding and capabilities and provide you with enabling strategies for change. Change could be represented in new ways of thinking, new ways of using language to communicate, new perceptions, changing attitudes, new ways of responding to a problem or a person, altered behaviours, increased self-understanding, increased optimism or feelings of well-being.
My first Degree was in Fine Art. Hypnotherapy is a creative process and I feel my creativity greatly assists my therapeutic work. My previous working roles have always involved working creatively with people and community. I have direct experience of people's emotional and physical struggles and my commitment to making a positive contribution led me to volunteer for six years for a mental health charity.
I am fully CRB checked and have wide experience of hypnotherapeutic work with children. Additional specializations include habit disorders and performance enhancement.
