I first started in the health field in 1970 when I was involved in forming a college counselling group and one of the UK’s first chain of health clubs.
Between 2001 to 2009 I was the editorial director for the Hypnosis Australia Online Journal for professional hypnotherapists.
I am also a registered and approved clinical supervisor with the Australian Society of Clinical Hypnotherapists (ASCH).
Can we help with many problems?
Yes.

Before coming to Australia, I practised for many years at the London Medical Centre, Harley Street in the UK. I was a member of professional associations in the UK and am internationally recognised for my work which has been reviewed on four continents.
I believe and teach that you are much more resourceful than you may have previously thought you are and in my clinic I help you find your strengths and use your knowledge and skills and to add to them to take you to where you want to go in life.
It is not that you cannot do something but that you can learn how to do what it is you need to do, go where you want to go and become what you want to become.
At some times in our life we all need help because we are all human.
How long will therapy take?
