I have always been fascinated by how people learn, think and behave and enjoy working to help others develop their own potential. I have a background in education and community development and combine my role as a therapist with teaching in a primary school. 

When I was introduced to hypnotherapy I was struck by how empowering it is - helping people to harness their own inner strengths and resources of mind to make the positive changes they want. 


 I love my work as a therapist. To witness people taking back control of their anxieties or fears and restoring their strength and resilience once again is a real privilege. 

When not working I enjoy spending time with family and friends as well as lots of walks with my little dog, Molly. I relax through reading, music, films, yoga and whenever possible being outside in the countryside or on the coast.

safe space

for you

It is important to me to offer you a safe, private and calm space for therapy, where you can feel at ease.


I offer sessions online over Zoom which are proving popular and have the advantage of being from the comfort of your own home.


I also work from the wonderful Bay Therapy Centre (www.baytherapycentre.com) in Lady Bay, where thorough safety and hygiene guidelines are reassuringly in place and you will find large airy rooms and a welcoming calm atmosphere. There are ground floor facilities offering wheelchair access and easy parking outside and in the nearby residential streets. 

Clients often say making the space and time for therapy sessions offers them  a sense of calm and stillness, where they can leave the busy demands of life for a while and enjoy some time just for themselves.
