Self Development 

I have enjoyed my own journey of self-discovery over the last twenty years and continue to update my skills on a regular basis, with a personal commitment to my own therapy and supervision and the development of the Surrey College of Clinical Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy (SCCP). As Principal I find change for myself and others an absorbing and exciting prospect allowing the development of new opportunities. 


I work with both individuals and couples on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of enabling people to enhance their lives and to live them more fully at either West Byfleet or Woking.
