What is Hypnosis?
Healing by “trance state” has been acknowledged for centuries and has been observed, in one form or another, in virtually every culture throughout the world. However, the term “hypnosis” (from the Greek “hypnos”, meaning “sleep”) was only coined around 1840 and remains a somewhat less than accurate description of the experience as, in most respects, the hypnotic state is entirely dissimilar to sleep.
According to the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council, at our current level of knowledge, the phenomenon cannot be conclusively defined but perhaps a reasonable interim definition might be that: “Hypnosis is a state of mind, enhanced by (although not exclusively) mental and physical relaxation, in which our subconscious is able to communicate with our conscious mind”.
What is Hypnotherapy?
Psychological therapy and counselling (sometimes referred to as the “talking cure”) is the treatment of emotional and psychological disorders, unwanted habits and undesirable feelings, using psychological techniques alone. The aim of all such therapy is to assist people in finding meaningful alternatives to their present unsatisfactory ways of thinking, feeling or behaving.
There are many forms of psychological therapy but Hypnotherapy is distinctive in that it attempts to address the client’s subconscious mind.
Unlike many other psychological therapies, Hypnotherapy is generally considered to be a fairly short-term approach in which beneficial change, if it is to occur, should become apparent within a relatively few sessions.

I have recently re-located to the New Forest area and am delighted to be joining a friendly and professional team at the Wessex Health Network in Christchurch.
I specialise in all kinds of psychological and physiological anxiety disorders, as well as all aspects of confidence, for both adults and children.
I began a career in complementary therapy thirteen years ago through a genuine desire to help others to cope better with the demands of modern living. Initially as a massage and healing therapist, I helped adults and children to ease both physical and emotional stresses. I qualified as an Advanced Hypnotherapist in 2005 and have since that time, gained a good reputation in Buckinghamshire through successful results and positive client feedback. My busy and successful practice was largely GP referral based.
I am passionate about helping busy women — like you — and their families to feel less stressed, less anxious and more confident so that you can be more happy, healthy and relaxed. I specialise in all aspects of anxiety and self-esteem for adults and children. I also provide effective help with symptoms of IBS and Asthma.
My empathetic, sensible and pragmatic approach draws on first-hand experience of challenge and trauma and how Advanced Hypnotherapy helped me to discover a resourcefulness to fix my broken life fifteen years ago. Now, as a busy career-minded 40-something wife and mum of two, I am able to work with you and your family on many levels to guide you to successfully find a way through to greater control, confidence and wellbeing.
