About me

Based in Epsom, Surrey, I am a fully qualified clinical hypnotherapist with a Diploma In Clinical Hypnotherapy (DCH), a Diploma in Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy (DHP) and I am a Master Clinical Hypnotherapist (MCH).  I trained with the prestigious Institute of Clinical Hypnosis in London with one of the country’s top hypnotherapists, Nicola Martin. The ICH is recognised as one of the UK’s foremost training colleges for clinical hypnotherapists and provides the highest quality of both practical and academic tuition.  I am also an EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) Practitioner, a Matrix Reimprinting Practitioner, a Facilitator of PSYCH-K and an EmoTrance Practitioner.

Born in Glasgow and brought up in a large medical clan, instead of following in the family footsteps I was more attracted by the Arts and so trained initially as a classical singer and certified teacher. I then spent many years working in the performing and teaching professions and also became a wife and mother, all of which makes me well-placed to engage with clients to resolve their work, life, clinical or performance issues. I currently run a general hypnotherapy practice in the Epsom area as well as offering sessions at Yoga Ananda, Reigate (see LOCATION AND CONTACT). I also arrange ad hoc sessions in Central London when required and home visits locally on request for those who are housebound. In addition, I offer a selection of workshops and talks individually tailored for employers, colleges and schools on stress, goal setting and relaxation. As well as my hypnotherapy I continue to allocate time in my busy schedule to teaching singing on a one to one basis sometimes in conjunction with hypnosis. My other interests are gardening, yoga and meditation, and public speaking skills which I practise regularly as a member of Epsom Speakers Club (part of Toastmasters International, the largest public speaking and professional development organisation in the world).

In my practice I adhere to a Code of Professional Ethics and all sessions are strictly confidential. I am fully insured, am a member of the AICH and am registered both with the General Hypnotherapy Register who have awarded me Advanced Practitioner Status (ADPR), and the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council. I am also a member of the Incorporated Society Of Musicians (ISM).
