After completing a PhD thesis in Audio Description & Semiotics at the University of Surrey, and working for almost three decades in business/support roles, I retrained as a Clinical Hypnotherapist in early 2020. I wanted to help people, and I believe I can help you. 

Using talking therapy, relaxation and metaphor, I take my clients on a journey into their unconscious to awaken their potential and help them find peace.

Covid Update

Hypnotherapy is essentially a talking therapy, so can be successfully practised online, for instance in treating stress, or as a way to experience deeper states of meditation. A free initial consultation is the precursor to your first therapy appointment, so if you have any questions or concerns about how an online session is run, I will be happy to discuss these with you beforehand.

Since lockdown has ended, in-person appointments are also available locally in Castle Douglas and Dalbeattie, UK.

Wishing you good health and calmness ahead.
