Welcome and thanks for visiting my website. I have been helping people change their lives in a positive way for almost 20 years. I specialise in helping others overcome stress, anxiety & low mood in a natural, supportive and empowering way and to avoid or reduce the use of prescription drugs where possible.
I’m passionate about helping and supporting people through periods of change and transition in their lives. My aim is to support, heal, inspire, motivate and empower others on their journey of personal development and transformation to SHINE! and be the best they can be. I do this by inspiring courage and confidence to enable clients find their direction in life again to motivate and support them to take action to transform their life.
Having many years' experience working professionally with clients on an individual basis, I have also worked within the public and private sectors including corporate, voluntary and community organisations and I'm keen to expand the use of complementary and integrative health care into the public and private sector work environments, including the NHS, to support employers and employees alike. I’ve also spent some time working in Europe as the resident hypnotherapist/psychotherapist in one of Europe’s most successful 5 Star boot camps - NuBeginnings France. I have extensive experience working as a therapist/nurse in palliative and cancer care.
My training over the years has included learning many different healing modalities, energy work and personal empowerment techniques. I've learned and gratefully received teachings from some of the best in their field. Everything I've learned has influenced both my professional and personal life. My experience over the years has deepened my personal and spiritual belief that we are all connected and that a conscious, mindful and heart based way of life is the only peaceful way forward. It has been and continues to be an amazing journey for me - long may it continue!
In keeping with current national and professional requirements I undertake regular continuous professional development, supervision and I am registered with the following professional bodies and organisations:
The General Hypnotherapy Society
The General Hypnotherapy Register - Senior Practitioner Registration
The Complementary & Natural Health Care Council
The British Medical Acupuncture Society

The Motivation Training Institute
The Guild for Stress Management & Trauma Specialists
My philosophy is 'back to basics' - my belief is simply that you already have the ability and inner resources to permanently and radically change and enhance your life to be the best you can be and my purpose is to help you discover and benefit from your unique inner resources. I believe that with compassion, understanding and outcome focused skills, I can help you bring about the changes you desire. With my help you will feel supported, inspired, encouraged, enlightened, confident and motivated to achieve your goals - be they physical, emotional, psychological or spiritual. I use a variety of therapies and techniques to support and help you – motivational coaching, acupuncture, hypnotherapy, nutrition, relaxation/meditation, healing and energy work, reiki, massage. I love the variety because everyone is different – what suits one client might not suit another so the combination of techniques I use to help you will be tailored and suited to your individual needs and circumstances.
By helping you discover and utilize your own unique inner resources and gifts, by motivating and supporting you to make even just small changes, you will almost immediately notice a difference. Continuing to make these changes has the potential to transform your life. You’ll feel empowered, excited and challenged by new opportunities to enjoy the richness and fullness of life. I know this to be true because everything I've learned over the years I've included in my life; I've changed the way I think about things and the way I deal with stress. I've changed what I eat and the way I care for myself and those around me. Making these changes wasn’t and isn't always easy – some changes were easy but others challenged me to the limit. My hope is that by using my skills and with the benefit of my own experience I can help you make the changes you’d like to make in your life. If I can change then anyone can! Some changes happen immediately, others can take time, but change is definitely possible!
