I have always enjoyed looking out for people, and trying to improve their quality of life. That's why it was no surprise that I spent nearly 40 years as a Registered General Nurse, Registered Mental Health Nurse, and as Project Managers and Quality Managers in hospitals in both the UK and NZ.


But despite all my experience in primary healthcare, one day I realised I had gotten stuck thinking the SO-SO thoughts, saying the SO-SO negative beliefs about myself, and doing the SO-SO routine, day in, day out. I was burning out in my job, too tired, anxious, stressed, irritable, irrational, and afraid to see alternatives, and yet desperately looking for ways to move forward. 


I wanted to stop doing SO-SO thoughts, words and actions, and to replace them with new habits which empowered me personally and professionally. Most people, when they realise this, would turn to primary healthcare, their doctors, hospitals etc. But I was working in that system and realised they did not always have the all the answers. Then I recalled the hypnosis I had seen back in 1981, early in my nursing career. Switching my career to Hypnotherapy has opened up my world, and that's when everything changed for me!


That was 10 years ago. In the decade since realising that, I have embraced Hypnotherapy and many other therapies complementary to mainstream medicine and primary healthcare. Now I utilise my own experiences in order to help you to make changes too, if you're willing to work with me to get the goals you seek.  Today I help people just like you, to make changes with Hypnotherapy, NLPLife Coaching and Tai Chi, underpinned by nearly 4 decades of nursing.

What you can expect as my client


I like to be frank and honest with the people I work with, so here's a reality check to help you decide whether or not to become my client. Firstly, if I do not believe I can help you I will say so, as I don't claim that I can "fix" 100% of people, nor to "fix" people 100% of the time. Nor do I claim to be a 'healer' that can help you get to your goals in just one session, as if with a simple snap of my fingers. In fact, during three decades of nursing experience I learned that not everything, and not everyone, can be fixed. Doctors and nurses see that all the time, so for anyone to make such claims are nonsense! So I don't make those claims, no. In fact I am a realist, and as such I prefer to say that I can help you to change your mind and body so that you can work towards your goals, and that I will help you to do that in as few sessions as possible. I will endevour to utilise evidence based practice, whenever  relevant evidence exists. I also prefer to utilise a project management style approach to the services I provide, with measurable outcomes for your goals. But I must point out that the responsibility for completing your journey rests with you.
