How I can help you

I use a combination of hypnosis, coaching and EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) when working with busy people who are suffering from burnout. When it becomes a habit, it’s stored deep within your subconscious mind, which is where all your habits are stored.

Hypnosis is an effective way to re-program your mind to overcome unwanted ways of thinking and feeling, to create new good habits to override the old unwanted habits. EFT or tapping is a fast effective therapy to help you to take back control, once you have cleared how to tap, you have it for life.

I offer help and support to enable you to change your lifestyle and your mindset in healthy positive ways.

Using a combination of hypnosis and EFT I have a 99.6% success rate with the people that I work with, who want to recover from burnout – so that you can feel calm and in control. No more anxiety, stress, exhaustion or self-doubt.
