From Educator to Hypnotherapist: A Journey of Healing and Transformation

Dedicating more than 16 years to education, primarily working with children with Social, Emotional, and Mental Health (SEMH) needs, I found a true calling. The impact of making a difference in the lives of these children brought me immense joy and fulfillment. In 2020, amid the global turmoil and uncertainty, I undertook one of the most significant challenges of my career: opening a new school. This was not just any school but one that embodied my ethos of creating a holistic and therapeutic learning environment, where both children and adults felt nurtured and supported.


The pride I felt in this accomplishment was unparalleled. I envisioned a sanctuary where education went beyond academics, fostering emotional and mental well-being for everyone involved. However, my dedication to this vision came at a personal cost. By giving my all to the role, my own health and happiness began to deteriorate. Fast forward to 2022, and I was a shadow of my former self – low in mood, anxious, losing weight and hair, and generally quite poorly.


My support network of amazing family, friends, and a compassionate GP did their best to help me navigate through this tough time, but it wasn’t enough. I felt trapped in a cycle of stress and exhaustion, unable to see a way out. It was during this period of vulnerability that I discovered hypnotherapy, a turning point that would change my life profoundly.


The positive impact of hypnotherapy on my life was nothing short of miraculous. Through solution-focused hypnotherapy, I found a new sense of calm, clarity, and well-being. The transformation I experienced was so profound that it inspired me to delve deeper into this therapeutic practice, with the hope of helping others who might be facing similar struggles.


My journey led me to train with the Clifton Practice Hypnotherapy Training (CPHT), renowned for its gold-standard hypnotherapy practice. The learning process was exhilarating, and I was fascinated by the neuroscience underpinning solution-focused hypnotherapy. Understanding how the brain works and how hypnotherapy can harness the power of positive thinking to effect real change was both enlightening and empowering.


Today, as a qualified hypnotherapist, I draw from my extensive experience in education and my personal journey of recovery. I am passionate about helping others find their path to healing and well-being. My approach is grounded in empathy, understanding, and a genuine desire to support my clients in achieving their goals.


Through my practice, I aim to create a safe and nurturing environment where clients can explore their thoughts and feelings, free from judgment. Whether it’s dealing with anxiety, stress, or other challenges, I am committed to guiding my clients towards a brighter, more positive future.


Looking back, I see how each step of my journey, with all its challenges and triumphs, has led me to where I am today. I am grateful for the lessons learned and the opportunity to help others through the powerful practice of hypnotherapy. My story is one of resilience, transformation, and hope – a testament to the incredible potential within each of us to overcome adversity and thrive.
