About Me

My Credentials:

I have attained my HPD in cognitive hypnotherapy from the Quest Institute and I am a certified master NLP practitioner and coach. I graduated from Queen's University Belfast with a music degree specialising in classical music performance. I am a member of the QCHPA, the National Council for Hypnotherapy and the CNHC and I abide by their code of conduct.

Commitment to professional development

As a therapist, I am committed to continuing professional development (CPD) and undertake regular training courses to ensure I am up to date with changes in the industry to meet professional requirements.

I had a real love and passion for musical performance when I was growing up and that developed into studying classical music performance at Queen's University, Belfast. This was the beginning of my own self-discovery. Finding the confidence to express myself through musical performance developed the skills and resilience I needed to deal with stress and performance anxiety within a high-pressured environment. Having had OCD for most of my life has enabled me to offer my services to those people who also want to discover a way to heal their life - and it is possible! Learning to heal from this has been a gift.

I first became interested in personal growth when I was in my early twenties and this curiosity lead me to the study of Cognitive Hypnotherapy and NLP. Learning about this subject redirected me back to 'myself' and who I wanted to be. Life is magical. That's how I see our potential. We can create our own world and live in a way that makes us and the people around us truly happy. Realising that I had the power to change my thoughts and perception was something I hadn't even considered.

When we are used to performing something and doing things in a certain way, we don't notice it becoming a habit. Then, we can easily become stuck in unhelpful patterns which is a consequence of not being conscious of our thinking. This is where cognitive hypnotherapy can make a difference as it helps you to change these thought patterns and live in way that corresponds to your beliefs and values.

I mainly offer hypnotherapy for clients in person and online who are seeking treatment for stress and anxiety issues. If you have been struggling too much with an issue and you feel like you are not coping with life and you feel overwhelmed, know that you are not alone, even if it feels that way.

I have been there myself and I learned to manage my anxieties so I could feel happy, calmer, more relaxed and able to enjoy life. Since then, I haven't looked back! After experiencing cognitive hypnotherapy for myself, I can say confidently that life is more joyful, fun and I can just take things in my stride, something which I never thought I could do.

It can be so natural to think:

'What's wrong with me?'

'Why am I the only one who seems like they can't cope?'

The truth is - these issues are something that can happen to anyone at anytime in their lives and feeling the need to reach out for support is not a failure, it is a necessity when our problems become too difficult to manage.

I am also a fully qualified Reiki Master/Teacher with Western and Japanese lineage. I run reiki training courses and I also offer reiki treatments and free distant healing.

I absolute love practicing and teaching reiki and I hope my enthusiasm for it will eventually create the same inspiration for you! Learning reiki for yourself is a brilliant way to promote self-care and great for managing stress and anxiety.

Practicing reiki daily helps you to remain in state of emotional and physical balance and it works to support your overall well-being. I offer training from shoden to master/teacher level with ongoing support from me after your training is complete.

Please do give me a call to see how we could work together to make some great, positive changes in your life and find the freedom and healing you deserve!
