My Story

It is a great privilege to help people manage fear, stress and anxiety – and ultimately lead happier lives. I am an experienced Clinical Hypnotherapist with a lifelong personal interest in meditation, a rich performing arts history, and corporate experience heading up production and project management teams. This multi-faceted experience has helped me hone my approach: a synthesis of therapeutic disciplines that informs and supports my work – from junior doctors suffering exam anxiety, professionals struggling to manage stress, and recording artists and actors looking to improve their performance.

My journey is one of transformation: the motivation behind my vocation and the positive change I seek to inspire in others. Following family trauma in my early teens, I suffered from anxiety and PTSD that affected my self-esteem and confidence. Through therapy and personal practice, I learned to feel more comfortable within myself and better manage distorted thought patterns and emotions. This empowering sense of control and resilience improved my quality of life and my ability to cope with problems – it was life-changing. After ten years of experience working in private and public sector roles, I explored the mind and body in greater depth, both through academic study and personal practice, later qualifying as a Clinical Hypnotherapist.

I deepen my understanding of mindfulness and compassionate awareness outside of the office through mindful practice and attend CPDs, retreats, and workshops. Having performed and co-written content for Radio and TV, I understand the challenges and joys associated with creative expression; I am a classically trained Violinist and hold a BA Hons (The University of Kent). My priority is as a Mother, and my interests include reading, meditation, classical history and archaeology, gardening, spirituality and religion, Monteverdi and electronica. I enjoy hiking, paddleboarding, kayaking and spending time with my family in nature. I have a personal interest in epigenetics and the intergenerational consequences of the Holocaust. Having lived most of my life in London, I moved to Bristol 13 years ago, so I split my time between both cities. I support Bristol Food BanksThe National Trust, and Surfers Against Sewage.
