I help people achieve the life they want.

My clients describe me as an experienced, understanding effective personal development coach and clinical hypnotherapist.

Personal development is entirely subjective, and it takes a specialist adept at getting to know the individual to plan the correct path. I am dedicated to helping my clients identify and keep the vibrancy, energy and renewed focus that are all benefits of the right hypnotherapy treatment. I can also get to the heart of a problem quickly, in order to achieve the most beneficial and lasting results for you.

What can we achieve together?

I place a high value on developing a genuinely deep understanding of an individual's thoughts and concerns as a first step to building a programme, and believe that the best way to achieve results is through a productive partnership.

Coaching uses diagnostic tools and concentrated conversations to help:

• Set and achieve professional goals
• Develop an entire key skillset
• Utilise existing strengths and minimise weaknesses
• Boost motivation and increase awareness
• Overcome obstacles internally and externally
• Achieve greater levels of professional success and satisfaction

A target orientated programme

At the core, my coaching and hypnotherapy is results-orientated. Success breeds success, and by hitting targets consistently we see development grow and grow. My purpose is for you to identify and feed off new possibilities, taking the right actions both to heighten levels of performance, and to sustain them over a longer period of time. This is not a 'quick fix', but a programme that can give you the master lines for a more positive outlook and clearer route to where you want to be.

Working with cutting edge strategies that offer practicality, Solution Focused Hypnotherapy helps guide people to take large positive steps in their lives and make changes within a short period. By combining Solution Focused Psychotherapy with the latest hypnosis techniques, tremendous results can be achieved.

Achieve the way to a better you

I look at what you want to achieve rather than at the problem that prompted you to seek change. The approach focuses on the present and the future and not on the past. This approach looks forward and not back at the past. We focus on your preferred future, and identify the things that would be better if a said problem went away. The emphasis is on change, not stagnation.

By taking this line of working, solutions appear on the horizon and we begin moving towards them, at pace. Both visualisation and relaxation via hypnosis have the ability to reduce anxiety. An entire altering of your perspective then becomes possible, as you are able to focus on your life's positive aspects much more easily.

This is the key to unlocking ourselves from the shackles that are placed on us when we encounter seemingly insurmountable obstacles in life. This could be anything from addiction to sleep disorders and childhood issues. Solution Focused Clinical Hypnotherapy is almost unmatched in the range of problems it can address. I specialise in the treatment of depression, anxiety, and hypertension.

How does it work?

Rather than being remedial or a form of therapy, coaching is far more structured in its nature. It is a way of fast tracking motivated and talented people to success by pushing their mental boundaries past their present limit.

You will receive professional, personal and individually tailored coaching and therapy to maximise the positive outcomes you desire. This diagnostic approach allows each individual to realise their full potential, with programmes not compromised by stereotyping or 'packaged' solutions according to a particular problem.

My practice offers a therapy room that encourages you to feel at ease and comfortable. It is based in the centre of the picturesque town of Falmouth, Cornwall, and has easy parking and access. You will have an opportunity to discuss with me your specific needs and the desired changes you wish to make, before I will answer any of your questions and offer my professional advice, structuring the way forward for you.
