I am a Hypnotherapist, Psychotherapist, Advanced BWRT® Practitioner . I also am an accredited Supervisor. I work in beautiful relaxed surroundings in the small village of North Lopham, just outside Diss.

I have always believed in a holistic approach to therapy. To be able to look at people as a whole in mind, body and spirit. Since qualifying as a Holistic Aromatherapist some 20+ years ago I have always believed in the powers of alternative therapy. Adding Hypnotherapy to my qualifications was a natural progression and one which I really believe enhances the therapies I can offer to my clients. Since training in Hypnotherapy I have also qualified in Psychotherapy and BWRT® which is a solution-focused behavioural psychotherapy.

Hypnotherapy is a natural way of helping many kinds of emotional and psychological problems that we find ourselves suffering from especially with the pressures of todays busy world and the different lives we live or would like to live.

Here, in the relaxed atmosphere of my clinic, I can offer you a warm and friendly service, which is strictly confidential and non judgemental. I can help you to make the changes you want to make in your life so that you can reach your true potential.

Here are some of the areas I can help you with:-

Stress and Anxiety Management

In today’s busy world none of us can go through life without suffering stress at some point or another. Stress and anxiety can come in all sorts of shapes and sizes and if left unmanaged can lead to other problems both physically and mentally. The key to managing stress is being able to recognise it when it happens and then learning how to deal with it.

Hypnotherapy, BWRT® and Aromatherapy can help and we can work together to find a programme that suits you with either of your preferred therapy or a combination leaving you feeling calmer, more relaxed, and finding it easier to cope with life’s problems in the future.

Confidence and Self-Esteem

A lack of confidence and self-esteem can really affect our lives and can have many side effects from stopping us doing something we would like to do or, in the extreme, can bring on panic attacks.

Hypnotherapy and BWRT® can help you feel good about yourself and can release you from the restraints of the past and allow you to move forward to achieve your goals.

Habits and Phobias

We all have had a Habit or Phobia at some point in our lives, some have gone with childhood and others have stayed with us, sometimes they can even becoming worse as we get older.

Hypnotherapy and BWRT® can really help to eliminate Fears and Phobias and to deal with annoying or embarrassing habits that get in the way of our daily lives.

Weight Loss

Are you struggling with that diet and need a little help? Have you tried lots of diets, lost weight and then find yourself putting it all back on in the end, and sometimes more?

Hypnotherapy and BWRT® can help you lose weight more easily by re-training your mind so that your weight loss is steady, give you more energy to help with exercise and regain the motivation you need to achieve your goal.

Smoking Cessation

If you really want to quit smoking then Hypnotherapy and BWRT® can help you achieve your goal. There is always an underlying reason why people are unsuccessful in stopping smoking. Like many addictions, it can be a tough decision to stop and one you can only make for yourself. Hypnotherapy can help you discover why you are still smoking and will enable you to kick the habit once and for all.


Irritable Bowel Syndrome can be extremely painful and has a variety of causes and symptoms. Hypnotherapy can be an effective way of helping both the symptoms and the pain attached to this ailment which affects both men and women.

Exam Nerves

Hypnotherapy and BWRT® can help to relax you and calm the nerves and anxiety that can be built up prior to exams, driving tests and other performance related problems that we may have in our lives. We can also fine tune the hypnotherapy to give you added confidence to help you succeed.

If your particular problem is not listed above, do give me a call as it is not possible to cover all conditions. If I can't help, then I will endeavour to put you in touch with another therapist that can.
