I’ve been where you are
I work with women to help them quickly identify and overcome any unconscious blocks that are keeping them stuck or stopping them from living the life they want to live.
I started my career working in Financial Services and after becoming fascinated by the mind I decided to retrain as a hypnotherapist and NLP coach. I have studied extensively to understand how your unconscious mind works and how it impacts your life without you realising it. I am proud to have been trained by three powerful women, Marisa Peer, Louise Trevatt and Claire Hegarty who are all incredibly experienced and successful in their field.
Whatever your current situation I can help you. I’ve been where you are. I’ve been a high achiever working for someone else, feeling a great sense of achievement in work but feeling unfulfilled at home. I’ve worked for someone where I have felt unappreciated and unhappy, my hard work and effort going unnoticed. I’ve had to prove myself in a male dominated industry, working twice as hard as colleagues to get any recognition.
I also know what it is like to give up that security and the comfort of a regular income to launch my own business. I understand what it is like to feel vulnerable, to doubt my own abilities and worry that I have made a mistake. I have also experienced that sense of pride as my business went from strength to strength. I have seen my confidence and self-belief grow and I have enjoyed the feeling of being in control of my own destiny.
I have experienced ill health and I understand how frustrating and debilitating a chronic health condition can be. I know how empowering it can be to regain control over your health and your life.
Wherever you are in your journey I can help you.
I would be honoured to work with you and be part of your journey. I truly believe you can have it all and I would love to help you achieve it. If you want to make a lasting change to your life, no matter how big or small get in touch.
Maybe you are not sure if you are ready to invest in yourself, maybe you already know you are ready. Either way I’d be delighted for you to contact me now to arrange an initial consultation.
I create bespoke packages for every client based on their individual situation. If you would like to know more about the techniques that I use please visit the Interventions page or contact me for more information.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between hypnosis and hypnotherapy?
Hypnosis is a way of guiding someone into a ‘trance’ state and hypnotherapy is the practice of using hypnosis for therapeutic purposes. The ‘trance’ state of hypnosis is a state of deep relaxation, hyper focus and increased suggestibility. People generally feel calm and relaxed during hypnosis. This is similar to the autopilot that occurs
How does hypnotherapy work?
The therapist will guide you into hypnosis and will then communicate with your subconscious mind to identify the root cause of the presenting problem. If you think of your subconscious mind as a computer where every experience, thought and memory is stored hypnotherapy helps you quickly search through the hard drive to locate the source of the issue. Once you have identified where the error is in the program this can be re-coded to change your thoughts and beliefs to more helpful ones. What this means
Does hypnotherapy actually get results?
Yes! A lot of issues can be resolved in just one session, between one to three sessions should be enough to resolve most problems. The American Psychological Association and the British Psychological Society both agree that hypnotherapy is an effective technique for a wide range of different problems and conditions including anxiety, pain and medical conditions.
Is hypnotherapy safe?
Provided the hypnotherapy is carried out by a trained professional then it is considered a safe complementary treatment.
Does hypnotherapy have any side effects?
Occasionally clients report adverse reactions such as headaches, nausea, low mood or irritation due to the deep healing work that has taken place.

“So this morning I have returned home from hospital with the most perfect little baby girl after having an amazing natural delivery. Rachael provided me with a 1:1 hypnobirthing session along with a session on breathing and relaxation techniques. This was my second baby but my first time using hypnobirthing and I had such a calmer and more controlled labour. I was able to have the natural, drug free delivery that I hoped for all thanks to using the breathing techniques and visualisations. I cannot recommend or thank Rachael enough for making me feel so empowered during my labour.”
"I had RTT with Rachael. English not being my native language didn't seem a barrier at all. Rachael is a person that naturally makes you feel relaxed and comfortable and I think this has been key in the process of hypnotherapy. Ever since I have felt more positive, calmed, self assured, and particularly present. The recording Rachael me feels amazingly personal and is helping me to fix new believes that are increasing my self esteem and making me feel more secure and happy."
