it's been fascinating ...
I am a qualified general and psychiatric nurse, a master NLP practitioner, have completed my coaching diploma training including clean language and am a certified Marisa Peer Rapid Transformation Therapist.,
I am a family person who enjoys spending time with the people and animals I love. I know that it's relationships and experiences that define us and I certainly like to make the most of them!
I currently have two horses that have lived with us since they were very young and like my career, theirs have evolved too! One used to successfully compete with my daughter, and now both horses enjoy the work that they do helping to coach clients that book for equine coaching.
I trained as a general and psychiatric nurse and enjoyed nursing for many years. I saw many changes in patients care particularly in psychiatric nursing, when many patients changed from being in patients to receiving care in the community. During this time patients were given more responsibility for their own care and worked with nurses to devise their own care plans.
Another job that I really enjoyed was working for the voluntary sector in homeless prevention. I started as a project worker and within a few months was managing with what started as one service and finished with four services. During the ten years that I did this, I met a diverse range of people who were struggling with many different things in their lives including domestic violence, addictions and all sorts of other challenges that can affect their confidence and wellbeing. Support plans were the tool that we used to ensure that clients were involved in achieving their own outcomes.
I really enjoyed the managing role but as the services grew I decided that I wanted to spend more time working with people again rather than doing paperwork so I completed my NLP (Neuro-linguistic programming) practitioner and master practitioner training this included timeline and hypnotherapy training.
I am also very fortunate to be one of the first people in the world to be trained in the Marisa Peer method of hypnotherapy. Using the Marisa Peer Method, I am able to share the secrets of her approach, and her successful 30-year track record of delivering transformational results. Marisa is the hypnotist to celebrities and royalty as well as a motivational speaker and author.
I have completed my coaching diploma training which includes clean language - a tool that uses your own words to direct your attention to your own experience.
I have learnt so much from the experience of my training courses, the knowledge that was shared with me, the styles of the people facilitating, and the many wonderful peers that I have met.
With all of the ups and downs in my work and life, coaching and hypnotherapy is a natural progression for me and I would love to work with you to empower you!

Our founder has a wide-range of qualifications and experience in the industry, which ensures a high-quality, bespoke service. Fascinated by metaphor, she has used this experience throughout her career:
Hypnosis is very safe it is a natural state that we all drift in and out of every day. When you are distracted in your own thoughts during a meeting, when you are engrossed in a good book or film.
Many people fear that they will lose control whilst under hypnosis but this will not happen, you remain fully in control and again contrary to popular belief you cannot be made to do anything that is against your belief, values and morals.
The benefits of hypnosis is that external distractions disappear as you focus inwards which is why it is a very efficient quick therapy.
As with any other therapy it does require the client to want to change and to commit to following on the session in their own time by regularly listening to a recording which will be provided as part of the session.
Trained as a general and psychiatric nurse, our founder enjoyed her work for many years, she gained many years experience working with a variety of differnet client groups in the voluntary sector and then trained as a neuro lingusitic practitioner and master practitioner which included hypnotherapy and time line therapy, and later as a clean language coach and rapid transformation hypnotherapist. We believe in continual development attending many regular training sessions.
The Marisa Peer rapid transformation therapy is a unique method of hypnotherapy and our founder feels very fortunate to be one of the first 30 people in the world that is trained in it. Sharing the secrets of her approach, she will endeavour to use it to your advantage. Marisa provides hypnotherapy services to celebrities and royalty. She is also an author and motivational speaker.
