My Story

After a successful career in Government as a policy maker and manager, I decided to follow my lifelong interest in how the mind works (and sometimes works against us!). I retrained as a Clinical Hypnotherapist with the internationally respected London College of Clinical Hypnosis and the University of West London and subsequently with Terence Watts, the creator of Brain Working Recursive Therapy (BWRT®). Reflecting my interest in the therapeutic benefits of voice and sound, I am also a certified Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP) practitioner and I am excited to be able to offer this innovative sound therapy programme to my clients. 

As a therapist, I focus on achieving rapid and sustainable results, and strongly believe that most single issues can be resolved in a few sessions. At the same time, I enjoy working with clients to work through more complex identity issues, trauma or challenging life events. I often work closely with other health and wellness professionals (for example, functional medics), recognising the inter-relationship between mind and body. For some clients, I work in a coaching rather than therapeutic role, and I am a certified coach for the Cogmed programme that I offer for clients that have concerns about focus and attention. 

I am fully insured, hold an enhanced DBS Certificate and have regular supervision. As a lifelong learner, I am always researching new techniques and practical applications of neuroscience as this field evolves and I am particularly interested in healing and the nervous system. I'm married with two pre-teen children and live in South West London and I'm a confident, if not fully fluent, French speaker. When I'm not working, my free time is spent with family and friends, cooking or planning an escape to the countryside.
