About me

I come from an extremely eclectic background, as do many hypnotherapists. I first qualified as a therapist in 1989 and was almost instantaneously successful - for the first time in my life, in fact, because before that I was what can be best described as a serial poor-achiever, in spite of monumental efforts.

Those efforts included: TV engineer, electronics design, tailor, carpet-layer, computer programmer, furniture shop assistant, factory hand, salesman (fire extinguishers and alarms) and part time rock 'n' roller (lead guitar)... some of those 'callings' overlapping with my life as a professional ballroom and latin-american dancer, running my own school for some thirty years.

I discovered the world of hypnotherapy by accident but took to it instantly and at 48 years old suddenly realised that I had most definitely found my niche! I had also discovered a great truth:

You'll never know how you could be if you decide to stay as you are...

First in the profession...

In October 2007 I was privileged to be the first person from any of the psychotherapy-related professions to be achieve the level of 'MCGI' - Member of the City and Guilds Institute. This is deemed to be comparable to a British Masters degree.

The MCGI was awarded for my work on the creation and implementation of a specialist hypnotherapist course in psychosexual disorders.

If you wish to read it, you can download my presented thesis as a pdf file (260kb).

I've created many therapy courses and concepts but my proudest and most recent is BrainWorking Recursive Therapy® a totally new style of psychotherapy with its roots firmly in the latest discoveries in Neuroscience. There's never been a more effective or efficient therapy and it's actually difficult to see how there ever could be!
