What is it like to be a Hypnotherapist? What do we do? How do we do it? Who are our clients? And how can you shape your tomorrow?
Welcome to my funny little world. Sometimes it's a bit sad, sometimes it's a bit mad, but I try to give you some uplifting words every day. And in amongst them I'll give you a little philosophy and celebrate just being. If you like a good bedtime story or you are just curious about your life or mine or you want to be encouraged, then come on in, the water's lovely!

Did the Duchess of Cambridge use hypnosis for birth?
Well there has been a lot written about the Duchess of Cambridge using hypnosis techniques for the birth of her son. Interestingly, these were written before the birth and nothing yet has emerged afterwards, if it ever will. I hope she did take the time to learn the techniques on The Birth CD programme, all of then can help to contribute to a positive and calm experience for the mother, a calm baby and also to aiding recovery afterwards. Certainly the duchess looked marvellous the day afterwards when she showed off her new son to the world.
I am a retired Army Officer - yes it was tough, yes it was exciting at times, yes it ate up my entire life and identity and swallowed me. Now the great green machine has spat me out and I am being me again.
I am a wife and mother and I have a tall husband (the best man in the world) a small son and a yellow labrador. I am at a fortunate stage in my life, I live in the beautiful countryside with people I love and I have enough of everything.
I worked for myself for a while as a Clinical Hypnotherapist, and what a great job! Although I loved it, I missed the buzz of lots of people around me so I became a teacher in a boys' secondary school, which I also love. Although I don't do much hypnotherapy these days, I still I help people to enjoy their lives!
And what about me? Oh, very standard - blah blah blah - but I can ski like a demon!
