Welcome to my website.

I am a solution focused clinical hypnotherapist and psychotherapist based in Worthing West Sussex. Solution focused hypnotherapy uses practical, modern and well-researched strategies to help people make significant changes in their lives, in a relatively short period of time. Rather than focusing on the problems, we look for the solutions and how you would like things to be.

I have found this approach to be extremely beneficial for my clients. This is because focusing on a problem does not utilise the brain to its full potential, and also, not everyone wants to talk about their problems in great detail. Clients often see improvements in other areas of their lives as well, and they can be surprised to find that the problem is not always what they first present at the initial consultation.

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help with many issues including, reducing stress and anxiety levels, fears and phobias, confidence building, quitting smoking, obsessional behaviour, addictions, insomnia ….click to see more.

I trained with the Clifton Practice, a recognized Centre of Excellence for Hypnotherapy. I am fully insured and hold an enhanced CRB certificate (DBS check) which allows me to work with children as well as adults.

As a member of the Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH) and Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNCH) I adhere to their codes of ethics, which you can see here. I also update my skills regularly through Continual Professional Development (CPD) and attend regular supervision.

The initial consultation lasts approximately 30 minutes. We will discuss your reasons for seeking help and gather a little information about you. During this session, if I think I can help you, then I will explain how the brain works and how we can move you towards your goal. This explanation alone is therapy in itself and you will probably experience lightbulb moments as you begin to understand why you have been feeling the way you do. This session does not involve any hypnosis but I will give you a recording to listen to between sessions and many clients notice a beneficial change immediately.

Please take a look around my site and if you can’t find what you’re looking for then feel free to contact me and I will do my best to answer any further questions you may have. Or you can use the link below to book an initial consultation.

All information is treated in confidence; you will be treated in a friendly and professional manner and with respect.
