I am a fully qualified and insured advanced clinical hypnotherapist.

My Qualifications

Hypnotherapy Practitioner's Diploma

Diploma in Clinical and Advanced Hypnotherapy

Practitioner of Neuro-Linguistic programming

SVQ Assessor in Social Care

I have over thirty years experience working with adults and young people as a social worker, manager and lecturer in social care. During that time I have worked with individuals and groups supporting and helping people to fulfill their potential and achieve their goals. My experience has shown me that understanding, belief and humour can  help people to address and alleviate problems in life.

I also have twenty years professional experience in arts performance and understand how unwanted thoughts, nerves, fear and anxiety can affect and interrupt the creative process and impact on how we perform in public whether that be on stage, in a studio or in a public speaking capacity. I use Hypnotherapy, in conjunction with my experience, to  help with reducing anxiety and stress around performance and assist in releasing your potential as a performer in whatever capacity.


I am a regulated Hypnotherapy Practioner and am registered with The Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council.

Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council

 I am registered with  the Complementary & Natural  Healthcare Council which  has been set up with Government support to protect the public by providing a UK voluntary register of Complementary Therapists.  

The CNHC's register has been approved as an accredited Voluntary register by the Professional Standards authority for Health and Social Care.

To be registered with the CNHC a hypnotherapist has to be suitably qualified, insured and sign up to an ethical code of conduct as well as keep their knowledge and skills current.

Scottish Hypnotherapy Foundation

The Scottish Hypnotherapy Foundation is a Scottish Charitable incorporated Organisation and its aim is to help the people of Scotland Access Hypnotherapy services from  Therapists who are regulated and have been educated to a nationally recognised level of training. Many hypnotherapists who advertise their services are unregulated and have received  only very limited training.

The SHF only lists therapists on its register who are also registered with The regulator: Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council. All SHF members are regulated.

 I am also an accredited member of the National Council of Hypnotherapists.
