Whether you prefer one-to-one sessions to help you Stop Smoking or to deal with more emotive issues, or whether you would prefer to attend a non-residential workshop for confidence building and more, Sycamore Hypnotherapy provides a professional, reliable and very down-to-earth approach.

The hypnotherapeutic process is a gentle but powerful one which, together with your motivation, can help you relax more, change your behaviours, understand yourself better, and overcome difficulties which are getting in the way. If you are feeling held back in some way, hypnotherapy can help you make the next step.

Specifically, hypnotherapy and Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy can help with:
Stop Smoking; Habits (e.g. nail-biting, knuckle-cracking); Stuttering; Phobias; Childbirth; Performance Anxiety (e.g. public speaking, interviews, driving tests); Weight loss; Assertiveness; Insomnia; Emotional difficulties (e.g. guilt, jealousy, worrying); Stress; Pain Management; Self-Esteem; Enhancing Sports Performance; Boundaries; Confidence; Self-Expression; Life Goals and many other issues we commonly face.

Hypnotherapy is an elegant and powerful process which utilises the hypnotic state to facilitate change at the unconscious level where the source of most of our problems lies. Techniques include Inner Child Work, Regression (where appropiate), Goal orientation, NLP, Solution Focus, EMDR, Cognitive Behavioural Work, Quantum Psycholgy, Timeline Therapy, Ego State work and good old fashioned understanding, insight and relationship.

While hypnotherapy does not offer miracle cures, we can often change our perspective and our perceptions which can help us change our habits, reactions, thoughts and feelings.

Despite popular misconceptions about hypnosis, you will be in full control at all times. Your therapy requires your motivation and is very much a team effort. It is not a matter of me ‘fixing’ you. It is a matter of two people working together to enable you to make the changes you want. I simply facilitate your process in a safe and understanding environment.

Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy (CBH) offers a particluar approach to help us understand and change our beliefs about ourselves. While aspects of this are usually included in my standard approach, if preferred, we can use 'pure' CBH.

Session Fees
First Session (1.5hrs & self-Hypnosis CD) - £60
Sessions thereafter - £50/hr
One-Session Stop-Smoking - £90

"If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've always got"


Sycamore Workshops are delivered in a very down-to-earth way so that they are easy to be a part of, are often a lot of fun, and can really inspire you to make the changes you want.

These workshops do not involve personal therapy or hypnotherapy directly but are designed based on my understanding of how the human mind works. The courses are designed to unblock our resources and to build self-esteem and confidence. They do not require you to share personal information if you would prefer not to. They include education about how we work as humans beings, practical and innovative ways to understand ourselves, teaching in self-hypnosis and sometimes meditation.

Branching Out - Personal Development & Motivation
This two day non-residential workshop provides a start-to-finish look at how we manage ourselves and our emotions in the day-to-day and offers tools to change the way we see things, and the ways we respond.

Inside Out – Co-dependency & Self-Discovery
This two day non-residential workshop provides a more detailed look at the ways we relate to ourselves and to other people, how we can get in our own way in life and what we really want for ourselves.

Weighting Around – Weight Management and Healthier Eating
This two day workshop provides a brief look at healthier eating based on the Mayr Method and the use of hypnotherapeutic training to help you manage your weight.

The Gift of the Present - Self-Awareness, Finding Time and Slowing it All Down
This one day workshop provides insight and methods designed to help us stop rushing through life without noticing it going by, helping with procrastination and stress

HYPNOBIRTHING - The Mongan Method
HypnoBirthing teaches you how to relax your body and mind so deeply that you can allow your body to birth your baby for you, often free of pain. There are no weird and wonderful tricks. You simply become able to trust your body and to ‘dance’ with the instinctual birthing process while you feel a greater sense of personal control.

Workshop Fees
2-day non-residential workshop £150
Optional 3 hour evening follow up £30
1-day workshop £80
HypnoBirthing Classes £300 per couple (5 evening classes, each 3 hours long)

Workshops are run every couple of months. Please see for more details.

“I can’t believe how much I loved it. I have got, and will get, so much out of it. When people ask me how the course went, I have replied that 'I think it will prove to be life changing for me in a very positive way'. Thank you.” C. Davidson, Manager

After 10 years working in the Aberdeen Oil & Gas industry as an environmental advisor, I changed direction following my own experience with hypnotherapy and psychotherapy. Having spent years of living my life very successfully on the outside, but without any sense of satisfaction or peace inside, I sought help from another and started to come to terms with myself and my experiences. Noticing changes in my work, ambition, relationships and my truth, I became fascinated by the way the unconscious mind works and the impact our conditioning,learning and experience can have on the way we live our lives as adults. I trained in clinical hypnotherapy with the London College of Clinical Hypnosis (LCCH) and the Harvest Clinic of Hypnotherapy and continue my professional and personal development by attending masterclasses in related subjects. I trained in HypnoBirthing with the HypnoBirthing UK, the Mongan Method I retain membership of the British Society of Clinical Hypnosis. and am therefore willingly bound by their Code of Ethics. Besides running my private practice, I am a course supervisor and tutor for the LCCH training in Clinical Hypnotherapy.
