Quality Assured Practice


The essence of everything important in life initially stems from morality! Morality evolves out us following a certain pattern of prohibition. basically there is a lot of bad things you shouldn't do and then, if you can adhere to that pathway, you are good enough! This is how we start with raising children, we place a series of prohibitions on their behaviours, behaviours, that if they manifested, it would make their life really miserable! As an adult, we have to understand how we got from there, to here, we have to understand how we contributed to where we are! Just look around you, look in your direct sphere of influence, look at the things that you can fix. Then start to fix the things that are in need of repair but start small and build up from there. But where to start? Well, start in the places where you spend a lot of your time, e.g. your room, the office desk, then work towards tidying up your mind, that's the place where it all, slowly, begins to change. From there, begin to develop your values, morals, principals etc, define who you are, what you stand for, and, more importantly, what you will not! From this position, your ethics become shaped, honed and polished and your purpose and meaning in life become very real; tangible!

As a therapist, I learned this principle over many years, because in order to help clients get their life in order, I discovered it was a moral imperative that I first achieve this for myself. Slowly and incrementally, I discovered that ethical values and sound morals are of the utmost importance, especially when one is working with other people, people who place their trust in you! It is, precisely, because of this that ethical practice is of paramount importance, even more so when in the world of therapeutic intervention. As my practice evolved, it morphed into the cornerstone of my approach to clinical hypnotherapy. Of course, in having a desire to help others create higher levels of cognitive acuity, it was imperative that my own levels of congruity must align with my life's principles.  And because of that, my life's vision and mission statements really must be on the same page. In order to walk the talk; I have to be the talk and to that end, my life's philosophy is, "say what you mean, mean what you say!" So, generally speaking, as a therapist, I must align myself, mentally and spiritually with my clients' needs and desires, because that is the birthplace of empathy and compassion. To view the Code of Ethics I conform to, please click here:




The world is full of would-be therapists, you will have friends, relatives. co-workers who will be more than happy to tell you how to solve your problems and in all probability, you may have played the role of advocate general on occasions? However, it was when I made the transition from a would-be therapist to a professionally trained one, that I was able to understand the difference! Firstly comes the realisation why God, in all his infinite wisdom, gave us one mouth and two ears! Secondly, the understanding of the need to suspend judgment and developing some specific skills, for example, compassion, honesty (within certain bounds), empathy and the real bonus of being kind! Equally important to one's training, is some real-life experience. But as valuable as training and life experience is, one needs clinical experience because this cannot be purchased, it evolves over time. But even with training, life experience and clinical experience, it is the way one applies and integrate that experience into practice that ultimately counts! Life experience is important because it is often from our mistakes that life is made good, after all, adversity is the teacher, life is the classroom! This is so because it is these moments of life that instil both competence and professionalism. So, my own life experience taught me compassion and ultimately shaped the way I apply the training I received which is now infused with my life and clinical experience! That much is borne out in the many testimonials I receive from past clients 

Over the years, as a clinical hypnotherapist, I have learned that the most important personal qualities a therapist needs, are, empathy and compassion; but how do you teach that? The empathy and compassion that I have, perhaps, is merely a consequence of what I call Tee shirt syndrome, been there, done that and these qualities are somewhat apparent to the clients I see? Therefore, the way I deliver hypnotherapy is a combination of life experience, professional training and 20 years of clinical which make empathy and compassion a natural fabric woven into my therapeutic practice! To experience this therapeutic approach first hand, you are very welcome to a Free Consultation (more info on that here), you have nothing to lose; except, of course; the Problem!

Diploma Hypno-Psychotherapy UK, Certified Hypnotist US, EFT Practitioner, Level 3, Cert' Anxiety Mang't. Cert' PLR.

ln order to have a good emotionally balanced life, the brain needs a certain level of clarity in both language and thought. That is why part of my work focuses on the quality of language a client uses; both internal and external. The quality of poor language is defined by its proclivity, towards negativity, ambiguity, vagueness and/or wrong context. Conversely, when language is well-formed, precise and positive, one's emotional experience of life is usually better! In almost every client I work with, it is clear that they use words whose meaning are vague, ambiguous or that filters emotion negatively at deeper levels of the brain/mind. If we are in a buoyant jubilant mood these words will likely have less of a negative effect but when we are in an anxious or fearful mindset, they can feed into our emotions and life can spiral out of control!

It was the discovery of how we use everyday language that demonstrated to me, how it can negatively influence our general sense of well-being and how this then affects the way we think, feel and behave. As I said above, our current mood state alters the effect a lack of clarity will have on us. And my aim in hypnotherapy is to help clients resolve this subtle, seemingly innocuous, self-sabotaging of our everyday experience of life. Trans4mational Therapy is the synthesis of all of my training, therapeutic and life experience. And to discover more about that, you can have a free consultation, free of any commitment and, also, try hypnosis; if you want to!
