Supporting you to restore your wellbeing & discover your innate self-worth & potential.

  • Do you feel stuck in difficult emotions, habits or old patterns that prevent you from moving forward in your life, or that impact your relationships?
  • Do you frequently feel emotionally reactive or triggered in the same way?
  • Does anxiety, self-doubt or fear stop you from living your life fully or pursuing your dreams?
  • Do you fear not being good enough, or does constant striving and the need for external validation negatively impact your wellbeing?

Using the techniques of EFT Tapping, hypnotherapy & coaching we explore the underlying root causes of the issue, as well as your desired outcomes.

We work on releasing stored emotions, rewiring subconscious self-limiting beliefs and letting go of any blocks or resistance to connecting with your true nature, purpose and potential.

I work creatively and with flexibility, always guiding you to access your own inner wisdom & capabilities, self-compassion and healing ability. My holistic approach focuses on body, mind, emotions and soul.

I offer 1:1 sessions in person and online and I provide additional support between sessions, through personalised hypnotherapy & meditation audios, EFT scripts & intuitive coaching tools.

What is Hypnotherapy?

Around 90% of our thoughts, feelings & behaviours are driven by our subconscious mind. Out of our conscious awareness, our brain is continually looking for matches between now and the past, to protect us and anticipate the future. If the the brain makes a match to a negative past experience, we become flooded with the protection response (fight, flight or freeze). Often, our unwanted emotional reactions or patterns of thinking & behaving reveal what we need to heal from our past.

This solution-focused, brief therapy helps change unwanted subconscious patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving. Until you become conscious of these underlying patterns you will often feel stuck, reactive or emotionally triggered in your life. It then becomes possible to update and rewire the subconscious mind with your desired outcomes and solutions.

Trance (or hypnotic) states are naturally occurring states of mind. For example, when you daydream during that meeting or getting lost in your thoughts while driving. A trance state is also a natural state of relaxation where you can access the subconscious to make positive and transformational changes, all without any swinging watch in sight!

I avoid the one size fits all approach and provide bespoke solutions by considering your model of the world, personal goals, values and needs. This integrates the theory of; positive psychology, neuroscience, evolutionary psychology & neuro-linguistic programming (NLP).

"Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate."

Carl Jung

What is Emotional Freedom Techniques (Tapping) & Matrix Reimprinting?

Emotional Freedom Techniques (Tapping or EFT) is the most well known and researched energy psychology method. The latest neuroscience findings show that stress & trauma affect a person's body-mind system. It combines principles of cognitive & exposure therapy with somatic stimulation.

EFT is often called emotional or psychological acupuncture without the needles and works with the mind, body & emotions in an integrated way. It is effective as a stress management tool and it helps with healing negative past experiences or trauma, stress and anxiety and transforms limiting core beliefs.

Integrating psychology with Chinese medicine it involves lightly tapping on various body acupoints and balancing the body-mind system that becomes disrupted through negative memories or experiences. The technique is easy to learn, gentle and ideal for self-help.

Matrix Reimprinting is an advanced version of EFT. Created by Karl Dawson, Matrix Reimprinting is a powerful means to discovering the root of your fears, beliefs and anxieties, and the specific memories where these were created.

How Does EFT Work?

The research demonstrates that EFT appears to affect the amygdala (stress centre in the brain) and hippocampus (memory centre), and both play a role in the decision process when you decide if something is a threat. Meridian acupoint stimulation deactivates the brains arousal pathways, calming the stress response and restoring emotional regulation.

EFT has also been shown to lower cortisol levels, which is the stress hormone. Too much cortisol can result in lowered immune function and ultimately affect our physical health.  EFT/Tapping is a tool which is practical, hands-on, and easy to apply, it is a unique way to assist people from all walks of life and it has an immediate calming effect.

What is Transformational & Intutitive Coaching?

Transformational coaching facilitates a journey of self exploration and change. It has both a goal-orientated and psychological focus that moves you from where you are in your life to where you want to be. It explores your beliefs, values, expectations, assumptions and psychological patterns. Through this awareness you can unlock transformative shifts, break down the negative patterns or beliefs and achieve the outcomes or changes you'd like to see in your life.

As an intuitive coach my approach focuses on balancing body, mind, emotions & soul. We restore wholeness and balance when we integrate these four aspects of our nature.

I guide you to connect to your essential being, the part of you that is infintely wise, loving and supportive and that is in alignment with universal intelligence or source energy. We work on releasing and letting go of any blocks or resistance to connecting with this and your highest purpose and potential.
