About The Halcyon Practice

Call Now

I studied at prestigious Clifton Practice in Bristol and was awarded a Diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (DFSH). The Clifton Practice is the leading Hypnotherapy/Psychotherapy school in the world specialising in Solution Focused techniques.   

As a member of the ASFSH I continue to update my studies and learn new techniques through supervision and the latest courses available. 

I also hold a diploma of education in Psychology and am now in my final year of my BSC honours. Learning about how the mind works and why we behave in the way that we do is a passion of mine and learning new and improved ways of helping my clients in one of the driving forces behind The Halcyon Practice.  

 I am proud to say that I have been where you are. I have struggled with mental illness and that is how the Halcyon Practice came about. I wanted to understand why I felt as I did and how I could use that knowledge to help others. I signed up for my degree in psychology and I have not looked back. 

I am not ashamed of my battle; I am proud of all I have achieved and now helping others as I dreamt of when this all began. 

The Halcyon Practice offers complete empathy for your situation and it comes from a place of complete understanding. 


Make the change


Feeling stuck? At a crossroads in your career or emotional life? Even the strongest among us can feel lost, unsure, ambivalent, or unhappy at times. I  can help you understand and manage whatever life throws at you, and how to do it successfully. I believe that you have the strength not just to survive, but to truly thrive.

The gentle nature of solution-focused hypnotherapy has enabled me to help people step into the life they want to live. Combining elements of CBT, solution brief therapy and hypnosis my clients have been able to make positive changes in their life.  Helping my clients to gain control by not only understanding the science behind their situation but feeling life can be just as they want it to be is paramount. 


What is Solution Focused Hypnotherapy?

Solution focused hypnotherapy is a form of "talking therapy" It brings together positive forward-thinking psychotherapy with the relaxing and natural practice of hypnosis. 

 Hypnosis is a trance-like state that each of us achieves many times per day. This is practiced in a heightened state by introducing guided relaxation.  This is then combined with suggestions that may assist clients in their everyday life. 

 Solution-focused therapy is very modern and uses the latest in neurological research in order to provide structured and practical strategies to help people make the positive changes that they wish to introduce in their lives. 

One of the most important aspects of solution focused hypnotherapy is that the therapist looks to what the client wishes to achieve rather than discussing the problem or what encouraged them to seek out help.
