Hypnotherapy has helped many people to make changes to their lives. It could change yours too!

Hello. If you’re reading this then you’re probably looking for help with a habit, a phobia, a self-limiting belief or any one of a host of other possible problems. Whatever it may be, I’m truly sorry that you have to be here. It’s never pleasant to be in the position where you recognise the need for therapy but please be assured, therapy needn’t be a grueling test of endurance. Many of my clients actually enjoy our sessions! Whatever bothers you it’s extremely likely that I have used hypnotherapy in Oxford to help people who once suffered from the same problem.

professional and compassionate therapy which will help you to leave your problems behind you, once and for all. There’s no reason for you to feel depressed, anxious or defeated anymore. There never was, in truth. You’ve always been better than you thought and believed.

My clients aren’t somehow lacking in strength or character because they have problems. They have more, in fact, than the average person because they’ve carried their issues around with them for so long.

No, my clients only imagine themselves to be unable to put their problems behind them by themselves. My work simply helps them to see that they can do it and once they see this, the problem falls away.

So, if you live in the area and would like to come for some hypnotherapy in Oxford then please do give me a call. I’ll be more than glad to talk with you and I think you’ll feel better for having taken the first step towards a problem-free future.

Whatever it may be: anxiety, phobia, depression, panic attacks, OCD, sexual problems such as erectile dysfunction, anorgasmia, premature ejaculation or vaginismus, calling me may well be your first step to a solution. I have worked with insomnia, trichotillomania, dermotillomania, enuresis, anger issues, grief, addictions, alcohol abuse and tonnes more besides. 

‘How can hypnotherapy help?’

accredited by UKCP

I undertook four years of training in order to learn how to combine counselling, psychotherapy, hypnotherapy and mindfulness into a powerful therapy. Hypnotherapy helps the brain to devise, accept and visualise solutions to problems which may have left you confused, feeling helpless for years.  hard because I believe that everybody in deserves an ethical and well-trained hypnotherapist who is capable of delivering the best possible therapy. 

working togetherIt’s an effective and safe form of therapy. It has moved far beyond its 1950s image of being all about whirring eyes and swinging watches. It’s now increasingly respected by the medical profession and I receive regular referrals from local audiology departments when they have tinnitus patients who need that extra help. If you would like some hypnotherapy in Oxford in order top learn how to cope with tinnitus or any other condition then please do get in touch.

Therapy has this image of being a grim and depressing trawl through the past. I think that this puts a good few people off the idea of beginning. I can reassure you that it’s not like that. Of course, there may be tears at times but many people find the process comforting and even enjoyable. Some of my clients even tell me that they’re sad to finish! 

There are many different types of therapy and in the past therapists from different schools of thought have argued over which is best. Research, however, shows that it’s the relationship built between client and therapist – rapport- which is as responsible for success as the type of therapy employed. I like to think that I’m good at establishing that rapport. You, of course, would need to agree and so please feel free to pick up the ‘phone and call me on 01865 600970 to find out if I’m the right person for you.

Do I have any testimonials to show you?

The use of testimonials is commonplace in hypnotherapy but UKCP forbids their use. They are seen as breaking confidentiality and can be faked. However, google reviews are permissible because they’re external to my site and can be negative. None of mine are and you can read what a group of satisfied former clients have written by clicking here.  Please bear in mind, however, that results can vary from person to person and that success can’t be guaranteed.

Hypnotherapy can work wonders with children too!

hypnotherapy for children

I have twenty years of teaching experience and so am in a good position to work with children and adolescents of ten years of age and upwards. At any one time I’m helping five or six child clients to leave their problems behind them. I have helped children and teenagers to overcome OCD, anxiety, depression, problems with food, trichotillomania, school refusal, asperger’s, anger management, phobias and much, much more.

Oxford being an academic centre of world-wide renown means that  I have helped dozens of people to cope with problems at university or at school. My teaching experience comes in handy here too.

I must stress that I haven’t yet trained formally in child and adolescent psychotherapy (I will be doing so ASAP) but am closely supervised and fully ethical in my work. If I feel that your child needs to be seen by somebody else then I won’t hesitate in saying so. 

Hypnotherapy is safe, respectful and increasingly recognised by the NHS.

I could talk for hours about how wonderful hypnotherapy is. In truth, however, I believe that it’s the relationship between the client and the the therapist which is the most important ingredient of all. I offer compassionate, professional and evidence-based hypnotherapy in Oxford and it’s this which will leave you feeling safe enough to uncover and resolve every layer of the problems you’re experiencing.

‘How does it work?’

It isn’t a magic wand. I can’t just say a few magic words and make everything right again. What I can do, however, is to help you see yourself as I see you. You see, you have everything you need in order to resolve your problems. Much of what I do is to help you to harness your strengths, helping you to use them to put your problems behind you. If I’m good at anything it’s in helping people to see themselves as I see them. I can guarantee that I’ll help you to see strengths and qualities which you have under-estimated. You’re not just a problem, a label or a collection of difficulties. You’re a unique human being with a great number of strengths and I’ll put them to good use in putting your issues where they belong: in the past.

Do you have any specialisms?

hypnotherapy for asperger'sI have used hypnotherapy in Oxford to help great numbers of people with a huge range of issues,  some of which are listed in the page above. However, I do happen to specialise in working with people with asperger’s / high-functioning autism.

A quarter to a third of my client base falls within the spectrum and I believe (as far as it can be measured) that I have a good success rate in helping my ASC / ASD to resolve problems such as anxiety, depression, OCD, social-anxiety and the like.

If you, or someone you love, is on the spectrum and is experiencing problems then please do consider giving me a call. I’d be glad to discuss how I could help.

Where in Oxford am I based?

The address is Helix House, 15 Warwick Street, Oxford, OX4 1SZ. It’s just off the Iffley Road and is close to Headington, Barton, Rose Hill and the town centre. Being just five minutes from the ring road  I’ll say that it’s one of the most easily accessed therapy centres in the city.

I also have bases in Wallingford, Thame and Reading. If one of those places would be more convenient then click:
