I am a Clinical Hypnotherapist based in the Forth Valley area of Scotland. My background is in Psychology - I graduated with my MA (hons) degree from the University of Edinburgh in 2012, having always been fascinated by the human mind and behaviour. My first personal insight into hypnotherapy was in the form of hypnobirthing, which I studied and used for the births of my second and third children. I was amazed at what a difference the techniques made – it was such an empowering and positive experience. This motivated me to look into training as a hypnotherapist.
I have 3 young children, all with additional support needs. As a carer for their complex needs, it has helped me grow as a person and truly appreciate how unique we all are. I have always been inclusive and non-judgmental in my outlook on life, but having children with both rare health issues and neurodivergence has made me much more understanding of the challenges people may face in their lives.
I am a calm, empathetic and approachable person, aiming to inspire and support people to make a positive change in their lives. I believe passionately in everyone striving to become the best version of themselves and living their best life. I hope to use the vast array of skills and knowledge I have to empower people and improve their quality of life. I am very aware that physical and mental health issues are on the rise globally. I truly believe that hypnotherapy holds the key to relieving some of these pressures by improving people’s mental and physical wellbeing.
I am fully qualified with my HPD (Hypnotherapy Practitioner’s Diploma), Dip(CAH) (Diploma in Clinical and Advanced Hypnosis). I have also done a specialist course on working with children and families. I am registered with the NCH and CNHC these are professional bodies to ensure ethical and professional standards of practice.
I am registered with the ICO (Information Commissioners Office) and I am member of the PVG scheme.
There are many tools available to help you quit smoking, so why would you choose my Smoking Cessation Hypnotherapy sessions?
I will use hypnosis to get to the root cause of your addiction, using an individual tailored approach to go about changing your whole mindset when it comes to Smoking. Talking you through your habits and the cravings, we can challenge the negative behaviours that lead to smoking and stop them from reoccurring.
Quitting smoking can be difficult. However, with the right guidance the rewards are great! Stopping smoking comes with a range of benefits from the obvious health benefits to the social and financial ones too.
I offer a specialised Smoking Cessation session of 90-120mins (complimentary follow up included, if required). An Audio recording is provided after the session. Hypnotherapy can be very effective at helping people to quit smoking, most people only require the one specialised session to achieve their goal.
Believe in yourself, give your willpower a boost and Breathe Free!
Anxiety & Stress
Life is hard, your mind is precious. Nothing highlighted this more than the COVID-19 Pandemic that has seen millions of people across the UK struggling with their mental and physical health. Anxiety can manifest in 2 different ways – short term anxiety such as exam stress or anxiety before a big life event or as a more prolonged chronic condition. Whilst stress and anxiety are a normal part of life, they shouldn’t control it. If you find that stress or anxiety is impacting your life in a negative way or holding you back, we can help.
Anxiety or Stress management hypnotherapy is tailored to your individual needs. The first session (90mins) will be a consultation to understand your needs and get to the root of the issue. After this session, I will come up with a treatment plan, send you an Audio to help you continue your work at home, and also teach you any other suitable self-help tools to aid you to get the very best from our sessions together. Everyone’s needs are unique; however, most anxiety or stress treatments require an average of 3-4 sessions (60 mins each).
Find yourself, regain control and alleviate your stress and anxiety with Hypnosis at LML.
It’s hard being a child in today’s fast-paced world and as a loving caregiver there is nothing more heart-breaking than seeing your child struggle. Children’s Mental Health is an area of growing concern. As Jean Piaget famously said ‘Play is the work of childhood’- at LML we can support your child so that they can get back to the day job of creating happy memories. Paediatric Hypnotherapy is a non-invasive, talking therapy that aims to put the child’s needs front and centre. I work with your child to create a safe space where they feel comfortable and listened to. I professionally and delicately deal with a wide range of issues, such as: anxiety, bedwetting, selective eating, trauma, problems at school (bullying/behaviour), self-esteem and social media or societal pressures. Hypnotherapy can be very effective in helping a wide range of issues for children and young people. If there is something you think I can help with, please give me a call to discuss. I work with parents and caregivers to allow children to explore their inner self by confidence building, positive affirmations and imagination.
I offer paediatric hypnotherapy for children aged 7+. Hypnotherapy sessions for children are adapted to suit their age and attention span and are therefore shorter than standard adult sessions. The first session with a child typically lasts around an hour, with further sessions lasting between 20-40 mins. As such, the fees for paediatric hypnotherapy are: £60 for the first session and £40 for each subsequent session. I also offer a free parent consultation for children under the age of 13 to discuss your child’s needs prior to commencing treatment with the child.

Can’t shake that unbearable fear of an animal, object, place, situation or nagging feeling? A phobia is an overwhelming and debilitating fear of an object, place, situation, feeling or animal. Phobias are more pronounced than fears. They develop when a person has an exaggerated or unrealistic sense of danger about a situation or object. In severe cases, phobias can have a large impact on a person’s life, manifesting in avoidance patterns or restrictive behaviour. Hypnotherapy can unlock the true subconscious triggers behind your response and conquer the phobias that hold you back in your daily life. At LML we have several techniques we can use combined with hypnosis to help you overcome your phobias and get your life back, such as CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming).
The first session (90mins) will be a client consultation to get to the root of your phobia and come up with a treatment plan tailored to your individual needs. Subsequent sessions are 60mins long. You will also be given an Audio recording to help you get the most out of your sessions with me. The amount of sessions will vary depending on the individual, however most people require 3-4 sessions in total.
