I am married to a GP and we have two teenage kids. We also have an elderly greyhound called Cindy who often sleeps on the adjacent sofa during my online hypnotherapy sessions. Over the last two years of lockdown, my escape was to read a lot of fiction as well as watching things like The Haunting Of Hill House on Netflix. I quite like walking. I like running, cooking and eating. I grow vegetables in our slightly wild garden. And our pond has attracted frogs and newts, which, to be honest, delights me more than perhaps it should.
I’ve been a hypnotherapist since April 2016 and in that time I’ve enjoyed seeing hypnotherapy become more and more mainstream. For me, that’s where it belongs.
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 director, making ads for TV. As that reputation started to fade I turned to writing fiction as well as hypnotherapy.
What my work as a therapist and my fiction writing have in common is an interest in change and transformation when faced with adversity. My focus now is totally geared towards my clients, helping them discover and achieve the changes or the transformation that works for them.
