I have more than 25 years’ experience of helping people with their emotional, mental and physical issues.

From a base of hypnotherapy and past life regression, I work to find the best-possible resolution.

Apart from my international training in various disciplines, my own life experiences allow me to empathise with many situations and challenges.  From early marriage to an alcoholic, to a shamanic interlude on a small island on Lake Titicaca in the Bolivian Andes; from running my own marketing and recruitment businesses on Gibraltar to almost two decades living and working in the Algarve, my own (often bumpy!) journey has taught me a great deal. It has also given me an understanding of different cultures and ways of life, as well as the many and varied issues that affect personal and business life.

I had the pleasure of studying with Dr Keith Hearne, a renowned psychologist who runs the European College of Hypnotherapy and I work closely with him even now.

I hold the fully-recognised Dip Hyp and Dip PLT / SRT qualifications, and keep abreast of developments in specialist areas with regular research, study and update training (CPD).

Is it anything like the stage acts on the TV?

No. A hypnotist who works on stage will select members of the audience who are especially suggestive (a few quick tests can easily determine this). And remember that people who go to see such acts are already in a state of “expectation”, knowing what’s coming and willing it to happen. The people who volunteer know what is expected of them and are totally willing to make fools of themselves – exactly as they probably do at a party after a few drinks!

Can everyone be hypnotised?

I would say that the vast majority of those who are willing to be hypnotised, can be. It should not be a battle of wills: if you don’t want to be hypnotised, it won’t happen. In my experience, there has only been a very small percentage of people for whom the process just didn’t work.

So can you look inside my head while I’m hypnotised?

No, and I can assure you I wouldn’t want to! The conscious brain is only on a coffee break, remember, and is keeping an eye on what’s happening. Just as it kicks in if there is an emergency while driving, so it would kick in if I attempted to instruct you to do something totally outside your usual moral standards or beliefs. It would also raise the alarm if I strayed “off piste” as it were – but trust me, I have no reason to do that, and no interest in delving into anything other than what has been agreed.

Will I be asleep?

No, but you will be in a very deep state of relaxation. Many people who  have experienced this state of relaxation say they love “going under” and don’t want to come back!

You will be aware of my voice but it will seem as if it’s coming from “over there somewhere”: everything seems very soft and dreamy.

Will I remember what’s happened to me?

Yes you will. In certain types of work – for instance those involving regression – it is important that you remember, as it helps you to put into context the insights that can come to you after the session.

In regression work in particular (this life or past lives), I say it is as though the filing clerk in your unconscious mind has gone to the archive and retrieved the relevant file and put it on your desk so you can view it whenever you want to.
