I’ve been a hypnotherapist since April 2016 and in that time I’ve enjoyed seeing hypnotherapy become more and more mainstream.
My background dips in and out of the mainstream. After I graduated with a degree in Fine Art I got a job starting at the bottom of the world of advertising and gradually worked my way to being a fairly good producer and a fairly good director; making ads for TV in the UK and abroad. As that reputation started to fade I turned to writing fiction. I wrote and illustrated a children’s book series as well as some short stories, a play and one or two screenplays. I know success as much as failure, having experienced both.
What ties together my work as a therapist and my fiction writing is an interest in change. A lot of fiction starts with the hero at a point where change is inevitable but is unsure of what form that change will take. And that resonates with a lot of my clients too.
