Feel better by investing in yourself. Get help to discover your solutions to your problems.

I believe that you have the right to know exactly what you are getting with my service so this is why I have a fees page and there are no hidden charges. Everything is agreed at the first session.

I know that sometimes contacting someone for help can be daunting…sometimes people get a feeling of anxiety about not knowing what to expect...they keep weighing up the benefits and the costs. If you are considering hypnotherapy you might feel anxious because you are not sure what to expect. Finding time may also be difficult, however with help you might learn how to take control and manage your time better. Have you considered that doing nothing might result in a bigger cost?

I aim to provide a professional service with fast results in a confidential and secure environment. Your payment is for my time, my expertise, any handouts or audio recordings, and my many years of experience of working with different people to help them achieve their goals.

Look closely because you also get additional benefits that most other services do not provide.  In the background your investment contributes to my additional costs with professional memberships, additional training, paying for professional supervision, attending conferences, business overheads and providing pro bono work to charities. 

So invest in yourself/your business and find out how you could feel so much better. Isn’t it time now to get help and discover the solutions that are right for you?
