I am passionate about helping people; I have been a teacher for over 10 years and really enjoyed the pastoral, caring side of the teaching role. Having used hypnotherapy myself to make immense changes in my own life I decided I could help more people by making a career change. My first encounter with hypnotherapy was to stop smoking, something I had been trying to do unsuccessfully for years; I found it easy with hypnotherapy. Due the success I had seen with smoking I again turned to hypnotherapy to help manage pain and aid healing with major surgery; another success. Since my first encounter with this therapy I have gone from strength to strength and met many others who have done so too.
