I have always been a people person. Even at school, a new pupil would be given to me to help them settle in. I became a travel agent when leaving school before moving into hospitality where I held many different positions but always public facing. Some years ago I attended some wellbeing fairs in a retail capacity. I enjoyed the positive environment created at these events and I knew then that some type of therapy would be my calling. I discovered hypnotherapy and read lots of literature before enrolling on an official intensive course with Yorkshire Hypnotherapy Training. It took over my life but it was so rewarding and uplifting. I was proud to achieve the GQHP award. (General Qualification in Hypnotherapy Practice).
In recent years, I have been volunteering at St Leonard’s Hospice in York, providing hypnotherapy to patients, their families and to staff. I have also worked very closely with Anxiety UK, helping people with differing issues connected to stress, anxiety and sometimes depression.
I do not want to specialise in any given subject as I want my skills and techniques to be available to as many people as possible. I love my job, I am confident that I can help people feel better in virtually all situations. I am approachable and understanding and will always give free time to my clients in advance of a hypnotherapy session.
