As a hypnotherapist I work in a field where wellness is at its heart. I chose cognitive behavioural hypnotherapy because of its realistic, easily applied techniques that can make a profound difference to people's lives
I've had a rich work and life experience before retraining as a hypnotherapist. I left the UK in my early 20's and after travelling for a while, I settled in the French countryside with my then-husband and three kids.
I initially taught English as a foreign language. I also set up an association to teach and promote humanist astrology during this period.
In 2003 I started work in a direct sales company climbing from the bottom, selling cooking appliances to women in their homes, to the top directing a marketing team in the Head Office. The whole journey was exciting, formative, interesting, and stressful!
Fast forward several years and in 2016 I divorced and relocated to London with my youngest son and took on the role of UK and Ireland company director.
After a couple of years, I became increasingly aware of how this life and its pressures can increase stress and anxiety. I was also questioning more and more the sense of what I was doing.
This is what led me to change cap and train as a cognitive behavioural hypnotherapist in the UK College of Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy in 2019.
Today I live with my partner Chris and split my time between Southwest London and Grenoble.
I have a busy private practice and I also coach trainee hypnotherapists at the UK college of Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy and offer supervision. I take time to see my three kids and grandchild who are scattered around the globe!
