About me

I am a highly qualified and experienced, fully accredited Trainer and Master Practitioner of Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), an accredited and registered Trainer of Clinical Hypnotherapy - the Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma (HPD) and an accredited & registered Hypnotherapy Supervisor.

In addition, I am an accredited Teacher & Trainer of Mindfulness Meditation.

I am also a fully qualified and registered Clinical Hypnotherapist and an Advanced Practitioner of Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT/Tapping).

In addition, I am a fully qualified and registered Hypnotension Practitioner. The Hypnotension Programme uses proven cognitive and Hypnotherapy techniques combined with behavioural coaching to tackle the most common lifestyle factors which cause high blood pressure. It's possible that the Hypnotension Programme could help over 90% of the people who are diagnosed with hypertension to get it under control and even significantly reduce it.

I’m a dedicated, innovative and creative therapist and coach with over 19 years experience of training and developing people at all levels.

My unique specialist skills are founded on combining the transformational change techniques of Hypnotherapy, NLP, EFT, Coaching and States of Mind coaching with the traditional training and people development skills techniques I’ve honed over the 17 years.

After having spent nearly eighteen years working in developing, growing and nurturing people and their potential in a global international blue chip company, I was made redundant in March 2012 and established a 'people focused' therapy and training practice, Mind Being You, that offers Hypnotherapy, NLP, Mindfulness, EFT and fully accredited NLP, Hypnotherapy and Mindfulness Training in comfortable, friendly premises in Congleton, Manchester and throughout East Cheshire.

This is helping people achieve true and lasting transformational change in their personal and professional lives.

My driving passion is helping people to connect with their true potential in order to help them make the changes they want in their lives.  My approach when working with clients, whether individual or corporate, is a simple one that supports and sustains all of the change work I do.

I believe that every change or development process must be ‘client centered’ and that the therapeutic or change journey of the therapist, trainer and client must have this principle at its core if it is to achieve lasting success and the results that the client expects and deserves.”
