Throughout my life I have undertaken a diverse range of jobs from working on the farm to working in local government in the care in the community sector.


It is through this work experience and the people I have met along my life’s journey that I discovered people do not have to live in a negative world and YOU can aspire to greater things. This revelation was the catalyst to my decision to train as a hypnotherapist. My sole intention now is to help people who now want to change or let go of unwanted emotional or behavioural issues which they have picked up on their life's journey that have been holding them back from reaching their full potential.


I am a member of the Scottish Hypnotherapy Foundation (SHF) and trained with the National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH). The SHF and the NCH are committed to ensuring the highest possible professional standards amongst their members and are governed by a strict code of ethics.  To maintain these standards CPD (Continuous Professional Development) is required, therefore to meet this criterion and to enhance my skills I have also trained in the following disciplines::


  • Clinical and Advanced Hypnosis

  • Neuro Lingustic Programming (NLP)

  • Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)

  • Indian Head Massage

  • Hypnotic Gastric Band

  • Psych-K™

  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

  • Loss and Bereavement Counselling

  • Generic Counselling

  • Past Life Regression

  • Smoking Cessation Specialism


I have also undertaken various other generic courses in respect of CPD.

The service I offer can help treat matters of the mind and body that may not have responded to other treatments.
