About Me

I first became interested in counselling and hypnotherapy when it helped me to turn my life around when things became really difficult for me. Like many others who have experienced counselling and hypnotherapy, it was a life affirming and healing process. Since then I have been fascinated and amazed by the power of it, it literally astounds me daily as I work with a wide range of people and issues.

Revitalised and enthused by the powerful effects of hypnotherapy and it’s natural way of improving health and well-being, I started studying again (a life long learner). I began a course of professional counselling and hypnotherapy training and continue that journey even today. I will become a fully qualified psychotherapist later this year to work alongside my hypnotherapy. Talking therapies are amazing and when coupled with hypnotherapy, the effects are even better. I currently see clients in Melton Mowbray and Leicester at my two lovely therapy rooms. Working within well-being centres where health and well-being are at the heart of the group of therapists, is my absolute dream job and I enjoy seeing the benefits of helping and supporting people every day.

From previous jobs as a secondary school teacher and special education needs, I have gained over 25 years of combined experience in helping people every day. I have first hand experience of working in a high stress environment and am well aware of the stresses and strains on both teachers and students in education right now. This is the reason I specialise in working with children, young people and teachers, helping them to reduce feelings of anxiety and managing stress levels. I also work as an Emotional Well-being Practitioner for Kooth.com, providing online counselling for children and young people aged between 11 and 25 years old, have a look at our website to see what great things we do: www.kooth.com. I now combine this valuable skill set with hypnotherapy to help others make some positive, lasting changes.
