Helping you achieve your goals
My role is to guide you to find the answers within yourself, unlock your innate strengths and learn the emotional resilience skills you need for the future. The mind is amazing and if you are ready to change, so much is possible.
Together we will focus on resolving unconscious programming that drives unhelpful stress responses and equip you with ways to feel in control. We’ll start to reshape your belief in yourself and your understanding of life experiences to help you feel empowered.
Over the years, I’ve continued to focus on the latest techniques and training to help my clients in the best way.
I aim to empower you
I believe you have the answers inside you and the potential to achieve your goals. Happiness is an ‘inside job’. I don’t believe in gimmicks. This is about helping you now to create the future you want.
You are unique
I believe that there is no one size fits all and that you deserve a tailored approach. We will focus on your solutions not mine.
A focus on learning & skills
Confidence isn’t the absence of stress. It’s knowing you have what you need to manage and grow. I share tools, MP3s and skills with my clients to build their own unique ‘mind toolkit’.
I create a safe and compassionate space for you to share what you need.
Whatever your background, lifestyle choice or world views my aim is to help you create what’s right for you.
Relief from anxiety
I love focusing on anxiety and confidence issues in adults because it’s an area where so many people need help. Anxiety and trauma are also issues I’ve personally overcome so I know from my own experience how liberating and life changing it can be.
Some believe you have to just learn to cope with anxiety. You don’t! You can be free of it. What you can learn is to manage stress, heal the past and build a new perspective.
If you want to know more and you are ready to make changes, send me a message.
My Background & Story
Why I became a hypnotherapist
I used to work in the IT sector for a large American firm so know how stressful and pressured it can be at work. I also know how it feels to be held back by limiting beliefs and a lack of confidence. Although I enjoyed my work, after a few years, it left me feeling unfulfilled, stressed out and wanting more from life. Have you ever felt like that?
The unexpected gift from trauma & anxiety…
When I was pregnant with my second baby, I fell into depression and terrible anxiety. It turned out to be post-traumatic stress from previous birth trauma. I went from a generally happy, calm person to a complete wreck. It was terrifying and horrible.
Luckily I discovered hypnobirthing and hypnotherapy.
After just few sessions, I went from crying at the thought of giving birth, to planning and experiencing the most peaceful and empowering home-birth with my daughter.
It was life changing!
I was free from fear, felt fully in control and was able to use self-hypnosis to stay comfortable as I gave birth. Amazing…!
I’d found the gift I wanted to share with others.
Discovering the power of mindset coaching….
But how to leave a well paid job and build my own business? How to manage whilst being a mum of two small children. Could I do it?…. Again, with some luck on my side, I met a fantastic NLP coach would helped me overcome the ‘mind blocks’ and taught me how to start taking the steps toward what I really wanted. I soon realised I wanted to help more than just pregnant women and started this journey to where I am now.
Long story short, I now do a job I absolutely love!
