“As a dedicated and accomplished Senior Lecturer in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy, I bring a wealth of diverse experience and a deep commitment to empowering individuals to take control of their lives and well-being. My journey has been marked by a series of transformative moments that have shaped my passion for helping others navigate challenges and realise their potential.

With a background that spans leadership roles in both the Police Service and the corporate world, I’ve always been drawn to guiding and supporting people. From my early days leading teams within a major supermarket chain to my years as an Inspector in the bustling metropolis of London, I’ve honed the skills of effective leadership, communication, and understanding the complexities of human behaviour.

My path took an unexpected turn when I encountered the transformative power of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy. Amidst the demands of a high-pressure career, I found myself grappling with stress and anxiety, longing for a way to regain control and embrace life with newfound vitality. Discovering the profound impact of this therapeutic approach, I not only embarked on my own journey of self-discovery but also resolved to bring this potent tool to others.

Through rigorous training and academic pursuits, I earned qualifications including a CPHT- diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy and an NCH – Hypnotherapy in Practice Diploma. Armed with the knowledge of how the brain functions and the science behind our emotional responses, I experienced a “light bulb moment” that forever changed my perspective. Armed with these insights, I cultivated a successful private practice, witnessing the remarkable transformations of my clients as they reclaimed their agency and happiness.

Guided by the belief that education should be engaging and practical, I approach teaching with a dedication to making concepts come alive. I infuse real-world examples into my lessons, ensuring that each student not only comprehends the material but also feels empowered to apply it confidently. I draw from my own experiences and case studies, illustrating the profound impact of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy in diverse contexts.

My passion and dedication stem from the intrinsic joy of witnessing individuals flourish. My enthusiasm is palpable as I recount success stories and share the profound fulfilment that accompanies facilitating positive change. I’m also proud to have contributed to a research study that highlights the unparalleled benefits of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy, solidifying its position as a powerful and effective therapeutic modality.

Looking ahead, my vision encompasses the integration of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy into the mainstream. I’m driven to advocate for its recognition on par with established therapeutic approaches, transcending its current status as a complementary practice. By spreading awareness and knowledge, I aim to elevate Solution Focused Hypnotherapy to the forefront of mainstream medical options.

Beyond my professional pursuits, I find solace in soaring through the skies with my husband in our airplane, exploring the countryside on foot and by bike, and cherishing moments spent with loved ones. For me, people are the heart of life, and connecting with friends and family is the ultimate source of joy and fulfilment.

Join me on a journey of self-discovery and transformation through Solution Focused Hypnotherapy. Together, we’ll explore the boundless potential of the human mind and unlock the pathways to a brighter, more empowered future.”
