About Me

I qualified in Medicine at University College Hospital, London in 1991, and as a General Practitioner in 1999, passing my MRCGP exam  (Membership of The Royal College of General Practitioners) in 1999 with merit. I am registered with the General Medical Council, although have chosen to no longer practice in traditional medicine. I was born in Stratford upon Avon and am married with two teenage boys.
After more than twenty years’ working in the NHS I left to follow a long-standing interest and passion for Clinical Hypnosis. Having sought out the highest possible training and qualifications, I hold a Post Graduate  CPPD and a PGCert in Clinical Hypnotherapy (both passed with distinction). 
 
I am fully insured and a fully registered, qualified practitioner with the General Hypnotherapy Council and with the Complimentary and Natural Healthcare Council. I hold a diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) qualification, and am certified in the use of Resourse-based Psychotherapy techniques, including Solution-focused Therapy (SFT), Positive Pyscology, and Motivational Interviewing. I have experience and training in the use of Mindfulness and regularly practice this myself. I am a Master Practitioner of Neuro-Linguistic Programing (NLP) and Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT/tapping) and am a qualified coach. Most recently I have trained in, and am qualified to practice Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR). 

I practice from a purpose-built consultation room at home and am occasionally also available for home visits.
