 I am continually amazed by the power of hypnotherapy to create profound change. We believe we run our lives via our conscious mind but 95% of our decision making is governed by our unconscious.  In hypnotherapy we use a trance state to  bypass the chatter of the mind and speak directly to your unconscious. It's a gentle, deep and often profound journey of change. 

 I have a special interest in anxiety  confidence and phobias and I have developed a unique methodology. I work on the body/unconscious connection, working deeply to identify and heal trauma or work change.  


I have an Advanced Diploma in Hypnotherapy, NLP and Psychotherapy. I am trained in EMDR and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. I am a registered member of ASCH.


NLP can be useful for shifting old ways of thinking and bringing about change, in effect re-wiring the brain. EMDR is a  highly effective technique for healing trauma and PTSD. Inner child work is useful in healing old patterns which cause you difficulty or pain. Somatic work is brilliant for identifying and shifting emotional pain in the body.

I see many clients who are seeking an alternative to talk therapy or medication. I take a holistic approach and am here to support you on your journey to wellness.

"I have had anxiety since I was very little. It has felt like a big black rock was stuck in my chest. I had tried some counselling in the past, CBT, and similar techniques, but they had limited effect. For a while, I even tried medication but for me, that didn't help.

I found Diana on the internet and that same week we had booked our first session. I had suffered for so long,  I really needed help, and I really wanted change. That was my first step.

Diana got to the absolute core of my fears, and with her gentle guidance, she was able to help me find my way. I guess she kind of made me realise, the answers I needed most, were already there waiting for me. 

After forty years the anxiety has finally gone. The therapy has given me back 'me', and I am no longer in fear.


Thank you, Diana. "


Clinical hypnotherapy is safe. It is nothing like 'stage' hypnotherapy - rather an effective technique that has been used for hundreds of years to work with the unconscious to effect fast and profound change. During your first session I will ascertain what you want to improve and each session is custom built to healing your issue. While I am primarily a hypnotherapist and NLP trained, I work with a numbers of tools and our session may use any combination to get results.


 I find the combination therapy is very powerful, particularly for anxiety.  It depends on the individual how many sessions you will need - anything from 3-6 is standard. Some people choose to go deeper and work through multiple issues.


PRICE     $ 180.00   First session 

        $ 165.00    Following sessions


The first session runs for 2 hours and sessions thereafter are 1-1.5 hours. 

Claimable through some private insurers.

Unsure whether this is the right therapy for you? Call me.
