I was born and raised near Chicago, Illinois in the United States. At university, I studied psychology and anthropology and took a great interest in alternative ways to treat the mind and body without consistantly needing to resort to pharmaceutical drugs. I moved to London in 2003 and shortly after arriving, I trained to become a Cognitive Hypnotherapist by completing (in 2007) a rigorous training programme with the internationally recognised Quest Institute.
Graduation from Quest and the passing of the Hypnotherapy Practitioner's Diploma leads to licensure from the National Council of Hypnotherapy (NCH) - a professional membership and regulatory body for qualified hypnotherapists.
As hypnotherapy is largely unregulated in the UK, it is important to choose a hypnotherapist that is well trained, fully insured, and that is committed to following the rules and regulations of a reputable regulatory body.
The NCH is also recognised by the UK Confederation of Hypnotherapy Organisations (UKCHO). UKCHO promotes the professional regulation of hypnotherapy within the United Kingdom to ensure that Hypnotherapists are safe and competent to practice and that they adhere to national standards of ethics and training.
I am also registered with the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) under the registration number 000806-L10. The Department of Health recommends that, where CHCH registers the professional discipline in question, that you consult with someone who is CNCH registered. More information can be found here.
In addition to Hypnotherapy, I am also trained in NLP, EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), Reiki and EBT (Emotional Brain Training).
I have recently written a book entitled You Can Choose To Be Joyful, which includes strategies for creating more joy in your life, backed by science. It can be found on Amazon worldwide and in the UK here.
I am committed to helping people overcome their problems and acheive their life goals in a safe, professional and caring environment. Contact me today to begin living your life on your own terms.
