Counselling & Hypnotherapy Bath

Experienced Counselling Therapist, Hypnotherapist & Life Coach

I am a professional hypnotherapist, counsellor and life coach. Since 1982 I have been working therapeutically with children and adults, in a variety of settings. My practice is in the City of Bath, just on the outskirts of the city centre. If you would like to make changes to your life, then I am here to help.

As a therapist, I constantly meet people suffering from the affects of anxiety. Anxiety often interferes with their everyday lives. It can have a negative impact on work situations or social gatherings. Such anxiety often underpins habits such as biting nails or grinding teeth. These unresolved emotions can cause stress. Which in turn can lead to an ever-deepening depressive state of mind.

Hypnotherapy and counselling can help you manage your emotions, deal with unnecessary behaviour and alleviate anxiety. Like many therapists, I recognise anxiety is underlying many symptoms. Anxiety can lead to other complications, such as unnecessary fears or obsessional behaviour.


The utilisation of hypnotherapy is a calm, but very powerful way, to get the right message to your unconscious mind. The positive and protective messages which are needed for the changes required. As a hypnotherapist, anxiety is the symptom I deal with the most. Hypnotherapy is perfectly designed to help with the symptoms of anxiety.


Any counselling therapy is for those who would prefer to talk through their issues.  With counselling or hypnotherapy, my aim is to people understand their emotions, issues or symptoms. And find ways to overcome or manage them.Whatever the work undertaken or the therapy used. All is done in a safe, confidential, non-judgemental environment.

Worry, anxiety and fear are all part of being human. But what happens when they get out of control?

Anxiety is the most common reason people seek my help. Every person I meet, whatever their symptom or issue, experiences anxiety. Many people come to me with underlying worry, anxiety or fear. Anxiety can be your friend or foe. It can work with you or against you.

Anxiety is useful if we need to be on high alert. However, sometimes it’s unecessary

Visit my blog page I Get Anxiety which explains anxiety, worry and fear in more detail and how anxiety can affect everyday life. Or, if you feel anxiety is getting the better of you, contact me to arrange a time to meet and discuss how we can work together to improve the natural balance between your thoughts and feelings.

Children’s Therapy

My therapeutic work with children spans over four decades. I have a great deal of understanding, knowledge, experience and expertise. Thereby, able to help children with a variety of issues. I am able to quickly build good rapport with children and gain their trust. Whatever their age or situation I am able to show children, they will be listened to, understood, respected and not judged in any way. I always aim for a calm, non-judgemental and honest approach.  Because of this, they are able to open up, knowing that they are in a safe environment to do so.

Whether counselling children or using hypnotherapy with children, I always involve parents each step of the way. I know how important it is for you to have faith in the children’s therapist you choose. Once you meet me, I have no doubt you will be reassured you have come to the right place.

I benefit from many years experience, using various techniques such as brief strategic therapy, family therapy, hypnotherapy and counselling.
