I am an integrative counsellor and hypnotherapist. I’m a member of the BACP and the General Hypnotherapy Register.  I trained at the Contemporary College of Therapeutic Studies in London.

I see private clients in the village of Helperby (within easy driving distance from Thirsk, Ripon and York). My usual availability is 3pm-8pm Monday, 1pm-8pm Tuesday to Friday. If you have a specific appointment time in mind (e.g. to fit in with child care or working hours) please ask so we can work out a suitable time for you.

My previous background included working in charities (NSPCC, Macmillans, Leonard Cheshire) as a business analyst and project manager.  I also have a diploma in musical performance and a Masters in writing musicals.
