Hello and welcome. The first time that I experienced hypnotherapy was over 25 years ago to help me deal with a traumatic situation and I have used it since, in both my personal and professional life, to help me overcome challenges and achieve my goals.
After spending over 20 years working in senior financial management roles and lecturing I had my light bulb moment and decided that I wanted to change direction and help people to overcome their issues just as I had been helped many years before. I trained in Hypnotherapy , on a one-to-one basis, with the late Dr Lyn Bateman (Fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine) who had over 40 years of practical hypnotherapy experience.
I have been a practicing hypnotherapist for over 8 years in my practice based just outside Newport, South Wales (in Rhiwderin village - 5 mins from J28). I have treated a wide variety of issues and I specialise in anxiety related issues and helping people to achieve their goals whatever that may be. In addition to hypnotherapy I am also an accredited Counsellor, Master Reiki Practitioner and Teacher, Spiritual Healer and an Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) Therapist. My holistic approach of combining hynotherapy, healing and counselling enables clients to make quicker progress than individual therapies.
In 2019 I travelled to Japan and completed a Reiki Masters course with Master Riebl which enabled me to teach Reiki. This life changing journey enabled me to walk in the founder of Reiki, Mikao Usui's, footsteps - I visited Mount Kurama (the birthplace of Reiki), visited zen gardens, palaces, meditated with monks, attended a calligraphy course and learned how to draw the Reiki symbols, bathed in hot water springs and visited Tokyo to pay respect to Mikao Usui at his resting place. At Mount Kurama I received a message to share with the group and whilst paying my respect at Mikao Usui's place of rest I received a personal message from spirit which was inspirational and life changing.
I am truly passionate about both Hypnotherapy and Healing and absolutely love helping people to address their self-limiting beliefs, overcome issues, re-balance their mind and body and improve their lives. Can you imagine waking up each day knowing that you are going to make a profound difference in someone's life? It feels great and you can feel that too - along with the flexibility to work hours to suit your lifestyle. To become a successful therapist I don't believe that you need endless certifications. The two most important traits of successful therapists are excellent people skills and empathy. If you would like to chat about potentially training as a Hypnotherapist or Healer then just get in touch as I would be delighted to chat with you.
Love & Light
