It was whilst working as a social worker in the field of mental health that I first developed my interest in working with individual psychology. Twenty years later I remain passionate aboutunderstanding what makes us tick and how creatively we manage the vicissitudes of life. Although I am trained in Transactional Analysis, I have a particular interest in the developing field of neuroscience and its impact on relationship based psychotherapy.
I first became interested in hypnosis when I was 15 years old. I listened to a tape recording of a hypnosis session to help people stop smoking (even though I didn't smoke) and I was amazed at thepowerful effect it had on me. I knew then that I had stumbled on something incredible and I wanted to know everything there was to know about hypnosis and hypnotherapy. Fast forward and here I am now, author my own hypnosis recordings but also doing much much more.
