There are so many ways that Hypnotherapy can help. If you can't find what you are looking for please call me to discuss.


It's reckoned that one in six adults in Britain will suffer from depression at some time in their lives, and it's on the increase, We now take three times as many anti-depressants as we did 20 years ago, and experts think it will be the second most disabling condition in the world by 2020, after heart disease. Some forms of depression are due to chemical deficiencies in the brain so It's worth speaking to your doctor before considering Hypnotherapy. However, there are tremendous ways that I can help you beat the blues. Call me Now!

Exam Preparation

Exam nerves is something which afflicts many students. No matter how clever or intelligent a student might be, they are bound to feel some level of nervousness on the day of the examination. However, when this starts to take over it can threaten to ruin your performance.

Some people seem to be able to pass exams or remember all kinds of facts and figures without putting in a substantial amount of work. They aren't any cleverer it's simply that they are able to focus their mind on the job and use it in a relaxed, confident and organised way which vastly improves their prospects of exam success.

Using Hypnosis for examinations and to improve your memory skills, can make such a difference, whether it's GCSEs, A levels or university finals. Call me Now!


Losing someone or something you love is very painful — and it’s something that almost everyone will experience at some point in their lives. Grief isn't always about death either. For a parent whose child finally leaves the nest it can often be just as traumatic. No two people will experience a loss in exactly the same way. The way a person grieves will be as individual as they are. No one can tell someone how to grieve.

If you're in this situation now. There's no book that tells you how much a loss will hurt or how long this grief will last. It's important to allow yourself to feel these normal emotions so that you can get through the grief and go on with life. However, sometimes it's harder for some to recover than it is for others. Hypnotherapy can help you through the process of grieving. Call me now to find out how.


The trouble with 'trying to fall asleep' is you just can't do it! Falling asleep is one of those things that just seems to happen all by itself. Ususally when we have insomnia it's down to stress. However, sometimes it can be due to diet or medication so it's well worth speaking to your G.P. in the first instance.

Hypnosis can naturally set your brain up to fall asleep by creating the same internal conditions as the 'pre-sleep' phase so you are sliding down that gentle slope into slumberland.

Memory Improvement

It's a popular myth that memory deteriorates with age. Using the right techniques, your memory can actually become stronger as you grow older. Hypnosis can help you to develop a magnificent memory that can help you in many areas of your life. It can help you store and recall information much more effectively, improve your concentration and overcome memory loss in a safe and natural way and more easily than you would have imagined. Call me now -while it's still fresh in your mind!

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

About 1 in every 50 people suffer from OCD at some point in their lives. The symptoms of OCD can be very distressing and can disrupt a persons normal life. However, if a person wants to free themselves it is possible. I'm willing to help you if you're determined to conquer this problem – It can be a tough one. Spend some time making sure that you're ready and willing to go through short-term suffering for long-term gain.

You need determination because you have to take the risk to experiment with behaviours that are totally opposite of what you would tend to do in these situations. You're going to have short-term doubts, and you have to be willing to overcome them and have faith that this will work.. If you can do that then please give me a call.

Panic Attacks

A Panic Attack can be awful . I know - I've been there! It's usually a cluster of fears related to leaving home, entering shops, being in crowds and public places, or travelling alone on buses, trains, or planes. But they all stem from one underlying fear. That is, a fear of having another panic attack!

A person can become very anxious and distressed and have an intense desire to get out of their current situation. The anxiety usually causes physical symptoms such as: a fast heart rate, palpitations, shaking, sweating, dry mouth, feeling sick, chest pain, headaches, stomach pains, a 'knot in the stomach', fast breathing. Even thinking about a panic attack can make a sufferer anxious.

However, I beat mine and you can beat yours too. There are very simple techniques I can teach you to help you banish them for good. Call me now!

Sports Performance

Today more and more athletes are turning to hypnosis for help to improve their sports performance. Hypnosis is increasingly being used within sports psychology as research studies mount up demonstrating that hypnosis increases performance. Many elite athletes now have mental coaches who directly employ the expertise of an experienced hypnotherapist as part of the coaching team. Golfer Frances Bondad has stated, after winning the Sanya Ladies Open 2011, that hypnotherapy helped to improve her game.

World athletes have proven over and over again that their greatest success stories originated in mental training. Many people are accustomed to personal performance, but consistency is key! I can teach you secret techniques of top sports performers. Keep your eye on the professional darts scene - there's a new world champion on his way having sought my help.

Tiger Woods, was introduced to these techniques when he was 13 years old. He says that they are inherent in all that he does. The results are clear to see. Tennis star, Jimmy Connors apparently used these techniques to practice his winning strokes prior to the US Open Championship. Kevin McBride, the Irish heavyweight boxing champion works with his hypnotist to get into the perfect frame of mind before every fight. Even golfer Jack Niklaus lauded these techniques as the sole reason for his improved concentration, which has led him to numerous victories. Boxer Ken Norton used hypnosis prior to his penultimate fight with Muhammad Ali. Norton ended up breaking Ali's jaw. Let me help you be the best that you can be. Call me now!

Teeth Grinding (Bruxism)

Dentists are reporting that we are grinding our teeth more, as stress and even fears over the recession grip us and saw a 20% rise in cases in 2008, 2009 and 2010. They call it 'Bruxism'. To the layman it is "teeth grinding", although for some it may only be clenching rather than grinding.

A lot of it happens at night, but there can be clenching during the day. Some people may suffer headaches as a result, or shooting pains in their jaw. But many may not realise they are doing it until the dentist spots it. It is not a pleasant thing to be woken by. Some have described it as "like a concrete mixer running down a blackboard." and often, irate sleeping partners are the first to notice.

Some Symptoms:

  • Abnormal wear on teeth
  • Fractures in healthy teeth
  • Headaches
  • Pain in jaw

Dentists believe that stress and anxiety are factors, as over the past couple of years things have changed considerably in the workplace. People are working longer hours, concerned about job security and debt and becoming more stressed as a result. Dentists are reporting a 30% increase in grinding-related problems since the start of the recession*. Removing the anxiety and stress response can really help to see an end to the problem.
