January seems an ideal time to give an update on what’s been happening in my hypnotherapy world over the past year.
Since last summer and following specialist training, I have been working with the Hospital Hypnotherapy Service at the University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff. This service was founded to provide a free hypnotherapy service to people having chemotherapy. The hospital hypnotherapists are able to help patients with anxiety that may arise from their illness, needle phobia and anticipatory nausea and vomiting (ANV) associated with chemotherapy. It’s a real privilege to be part of the fantastic team of Clinical Hypnotherapists and very rewarding to help those in need.
In my private practice I’ve enjoyed helping clients with a wide range of issues. Underlying stress and anxiety continues to be the main prompt for people seeking help and it can manifest itself in so many different ways – sleep problems, skin and digestive disorders, persistent pain, lack of motivation, to name a few.
I am now offering appointments in Penarth, at the Wellfield Clinic on Stanwell Road. I continue to work from my private practice in Sully (located between Penarth and Barry) and at the Cathedral Road Clinic in Cardiff.
As always, I continue to expand my knowledge and keep up to date with modern research on how the brain works, through professional development courses. In the last year I have attended courses on Fertility, Self-Hypnosis for Childbirth, Hypnotherapy for Chemotherapy, Mindfulness and Neuroscience.

I look forward to helping more clients throughout 2016.
