"The gift you gave me today and last week has been the biggest blessing. I am so lucky to have our paths cross. I feel freedom to make different choices. Your wisdom and compassion is so powerful and both times you have filled me with awareness and hope not hopelessness. It was a big afternoon but I know it was worth it."- Lisa 

Calm Your Anxiety
Hypnosis Also Works Online.

Hypnosis is a state of deep relaxation and focus, very similar to the feeling of becoming engrossed in a film or daydreaming. Online sessions are personalised to meet your goals for positive change by harnessing the power of your subconscious mind in the comfort of your own home. Sessions are deeply relaxing and empowering. Online sessions are accessed via a secure portal..no need to download  apps or install software. I offer a free strategy call to understand  your goals and give you an experience of what hypnosis feels like.

The Science of Hypnotherapy and Emotional Freedom Technique (Tapping)


 Relief for the Body and the Mind 

Hypnotherapy and Emotional Freedom Technique ( an acupressure technique ) can rapidly alter neural pathways, turn on and off genes and regulate stress hormones, resulting in reductions in anxiety symptoms, inflammation and pain and faster treatment outcomes that are seen from cognitive behaviour therapy, counselling and psychotherapy. Hypnotherapy can be used in conjunction with medical treatments and medication, reducing stress  


Boost your Immune System & Gut Health

A single session of Hypnotherapy has been shown to impact not only beliefs and feelings positively but alter the expression of 15 genes that enhance stem cell activity and reduce cellular stress and inflammation. (Rossi et al, 2008) A recent study by Monash university showed hypnotherapy was just as effective at reducing symptoms of IBS when complared to people undertaking a low FODMAP diet.  Participants in the trial who underwent hypnosis also showed a reduction in anxiety.

In 1970, Alfred A. Barrios, Ph.D. conducted a survey of scientific literature to compare recovery rates for various modalities of therapy:
Psychoanalysis can be expected to have a 38% recovery rate after approximately 600 sessions.
Behavior therapy (Wolpian) can be expected to have a 72% recovery rate after an average of 22 sessions.
Hypnotherapy can be expected to have a 93% recovery rate after an average of 6 sessions
-Source: Barrios, Alfred A. “Hypnotherapy: A Reappraisal,” Psychotherapy: Theory, Research and Practice (1970)


Learn powerful techniques & feel in control... 

Emotional Freedom Technique, (EFT) combines the tapping of acupressure points with the fingers and elements of mindfulness, exposure therapy, EMDR and CBT. EFT has recently been shown in a pilot study to regulate over 70 genes involved in immune function, tumour supression, insulin regulation and inflammation in just a single session. (Maharaj, M. E. 2016) EFT has been clinically shown to reduce anxiety, PTSD, OCD symptoms, pain and aid weight management.
I teach the basics of EFT in the first session to give you a life long tool to help you manage stress.
