Are you struggling with issues related to stress, confidence, anxiety, or major life changes. Are you not where you want to be in life?
There comes a time when we need some help from a certified professional to help us cope with many of life’s challenges.
I’m a registered Clinical Hypnotherapist in the Grantham/Newark/Nottingham area,
and I’m really looking forward to being able to help you on your journey towards healing and self-discovery.
Life can be overwhelming and sometimes even exhausting, but I’m here to guide you through any obstacles you may face.
My goal is to help you understand yourself more deeply and better cope with change.
Exceeding Expectations One Starfish at a Time
PASSIONATE ABOUT HELPING PEOPLE BE THE BEST THEY CAN BE
After a 23-year career at the BBC, I found myself facing redundancy in 2005, and I came across a company that helps people with their health and wellbeing and started my own business under their umbrella. I went on to grow a wonderful business with them,
which continues to this day alongside hypnotherapy.
I love helping people grow and develop and have undertaken extensive trainings over the years in self development, mindset and nutrition.
When we relocated to the Nottingham/Lincoln borders, near Grantham, to be nearer to family, it coincided with our son leaving for university, so I found myself to be an empty nester! I got involved in charity work, to meet more people and give back, received hypnotherapy personally and found it to be absolutely fantastic.
So, when a course came up to learn how to actually become a hypnotherapist, it sang to me - it sits with my core values of helping people become the best they can be,
with integrity, empathy and dignity.
And so STARFISH HYPNOTHERAPY was born and in 2018 I embarked on the journey to qualify as a Clinical Hypnotherapist with the largest training school in the UK - Innervisions. Having qualified in June 2019, I am really enjoying the journey, and have already helped so many people change their mindset and get rid of unwanted feelings and behaviours
and I love what I do.
Please give me a call to chat through any unwanted thoughts, feelings, behaviours or patterns that you would like to change (the list is endless),
and let’s see if hypnotherapy is the right vehicle for you. Please also click on my "Testimonials" page (see menu tab at top) to read what other clients have said.
I offer free initial consultations so that we can explore where you are now and where you’d like to be. Then we can discuss the journey thereafter and how hypnotherapy can help you.
I see clients in Orston, near Bingham in Nottinghamshire
and can also work online using Zoom.
I look forward to hearing from you and helping you become your best YOU.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Helping you understand better
Have a question you’d like to ask?
I’m committed to giving patients the best care and experience I can.
There’s no such thing as a silly question.
Check out the answers to the FAQs below, and don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any additional questions.
WHAT IS HYPNOTHERAPY?
Hypnotherapy is a type of complementary and alternative therapy in which the mind is used to help with a variety of problems, such as breaking bad habits or coping with stress. It is completely natural - you will feel focussed and relaxed.
WILL I BE ASLEEP?
No, you will be awake, but with your eyes closed. You will be able to hear everything around you. You will be deeply relaxed until you reach a state where the conscious part of your mind is relaxed and your subconscious part is more open to suggestion to help you make the changes you wish to happen. You will be aware and in control the whole time.
HOW DO I KNOW I WILL "WAKE UP" OR COME OUT OF HYPNOSIS?
No-one has ever remained in hypnosis indefinitely. Even if something were to happen to me halfway through the session, you would still 'come out' of hypnosis once rapport had been broken.
WILL I GIVE ANY SECRETS AWAY?
No, you won't say or do anything at all that you don't want to. You will be in complete control because you are awake. If you were given suggestions that you didn't morally or ethically agree with, you would come out of hypnosis or ignore the suggestions.
WHAT DOES IT FEEL LIKE?
Everyone is different. Some people say that their body feels like a lead weight, others say they feel as though they're floating. Most people will agree that it's a lovely feeling because they are more relaxed than they have ever been before.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
The only side effects are the beneficial ones of feeling more relaxed afterwards and feeling more positive about whatever it was you came to see me for help with. Hypnosis is a perfectly natural state.
HOW LONG DOES EACH THERAPY SESSION TAKE?
That depends on the reason you're coming for. Most sessions last 45-60 mins - I will discuss the timing of the session with you at your free initial consultation
HOW MANY SESSIONS WILL I NEED?
This depends on a number of factors but the average is usually between 3-6 sessions - unless it's smoking cessation which is 1 session. However, it may be less than 3 or more than 6 depending on the issues at hand. We will discuss this at your free initial consultation.
ARE RESULTS GUARANTEED?
It's not possible to ever guarantee results because the only person who can make any changes is you. The results will depend purely upon how committed and motivated you are to make the changes.
ARE YOU REGISTERED?
I am a Registered Practitioner with the GHR (General Hypnotherapy Register) and abide by their code of conduct and ethics.
