On a personal level, I graduated with a Bachelor of Science, majoring in Zoology, and then spent a number of years trying to forge a career with animals. Animals are a passion for me, and I truly believe in their healing power. Before long I realised that while I have an immense love for animals, helping people was where my heart lay.

My interest in hypnotherapy began with my own experience. Having moved back to the UK from Australia, I found myself feeling a little bit lost. I was in a new city, working in a gift shop and I found myself questioning where I was going in my life, so I decided to go and see a hypnotherapist.

I’d always thought I was a fairly confident and driven person, but hypnotherapy opened up my eyes and helped me confront how anxious I had actually become. I was so pleased with the results that I decided to train at The Clifton Practice. I gained my Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma, and Diploma of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy and have been building my private practice ever since!

Today, my focus sees me working with clients struggling with depression and self-confidence issues, including eating disorders and self-harm. I aim to help people learn to treat themselves with compassion and kindness and find a way towards a place of self-love. 

Away from my practice, I’m a very creative person, always on the go, learning a new skill or hobby. I’m most at peace when I’m out in nature, and with animals - two things I hope to bring into my therapy sessions in the near future!

We all want to help one another.

Human beings are like that.

We want to live by each other's happiness, not by each other's misery.

Charlie Chaplin
