I have always been interested in what makes people tick. An observer by nature I was that kid who watched others do life, hoping I would pick up a tip or two. After spending my early 20s in California, I moved to London working in the tech industry. Lots of human observation to be done there. After having my children I became a health blogger by chance when I was experiencing a bout of recurrent illness. I set up a green juice delivery business and shared what I had learned with the world.
My juice clients, although loving their green juices, showed a surprising resistance to change their toxic and sugary habits despite the obvious benefits such a change would make to their health, immunity and weight. There seemed to be two minds at play and one was always winning. It led me to investigate what happens in our brain when we want to change habits but feel we can’t – and it led me to hypnotherapy.
I felt that the focus on solutions, rather than problems, provided the answers to the questions I had been pondering. I trained at The Clifton Practice, where I gained my Higher Practitioner Diploma (HPD) and later with the Hypnotherapy Training School where I received my Diploma in Medical Hypnotherapy.
I am fully insured and have an enhanced DBS certificate which means I can work with adults and children alike. I belong to the National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH), Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) and the Association for Solution focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH) which means that I adhere to their strict code of conduct and regulations, have regular supervision and continuous professional development.
