About this Speaker
I'm a fully qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist, NLP Practitioner and Coach, also trained in Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy and Advanced Hypnotherapy. I'm based in Amersham near London, online and onsite for schools and employers. I have been a speaker at events including UKHC2018 and 2019 and was due to speak again this year.
My Father was a hypnotherapist and taught me self-hypnosis when I was a teenager. This experience led me to seek professional training as a hypnotherapist myself.
For many years I was "The Fairy Godmother" at Fairyland Parties, organising fairy themed parties for children, incorporating moving meditation. This business was a manifestation of my belief that using the imagination is not just fun, but is also an empowering life-skill. A particular passion of mine is working therapeutically with children and teenagers (and of course, their parents.) My training course for working with children will be released early next year.
I'm a qualified holistic practitioner (Allergy therapy, Diet and nutrition, Herbal Medicine, Holistic and Indian head massage, Feng Shui and a Reiki Master) and teacher of meditation for over 20 years. I facilitate training courses and workshops and also teach meditation, mindfulness and Reiki Healing and am a Laughter Yoga facilitator.
Prior to becoming a full time hypnotherapist I worked for a mental health charity supporting clients with work related mental health issues, managed a holistic health centre and ran a community centre whilst bringing up my three children with my husband of 34 years! My knowledge and experience of medical conditions, holistic medicine and life experience give me a good understanding of many of the problems my clients face. I'm also the author of a number of therapy based books (and a fairy book or two.)
