By foot from the Upper High Street: Continue up the hill through pedestrian precinct, turn right at “The Pramery” into Newbury Street. Church Close is the first left turn. The clinic is the cream coloured Georgian building beyond St Mary’s surgery and the church hall (Harris Hall). It’s the last building on the left before you reach Bracher Close. The Iron Age Museum is opposite.
From surrounding areas: Follow brown tourist signs for “Iron Age Museum” which is also in Church Close.
As you pass the museum, turn left into Bracher Close where there are some one hour parking slots. At the end of this line of off-street parking is the entrance to the clinic yard where there may also be a couple of parking slots. These days parking is limited and you may need to use the surface car park at George Yard behind Marks and Spencer (go past the right turn into Church Close and immediately turn left to get to this car park).

In Southampton, please park outside and ring only at your given appointment time, to do so before could disturb a therapy session in progress.

Bookings can be made by telephone or by e-mail.  You are welcome to ring me on 079500 24364.  For reception at the Chiros Clinic ring (01264) 324924 – but it’s usually much better to speak directly to me.  If I’m with a client, don’t worry, you won’t disturb us but please leave a message on my answerphone. If you want me to ring you back it’s useful to say when you will be available. Consultations are strictly by appointment and I regret that casual callers cannot be seen.  A minimum of 24 hours notice must be given of a cancellation or the full session fee may be payable – and it does make a big difference to me to have at least 24 hours notice.

Introductory Consultation
Normally your first session will be a free introductory consultation. This is so that I can answer any questions you may have about the therapy and to ensure that the therapy is right for you.

Suggestion Therapy
(for slimming, nail biting, pre-test nerves etc)

I usually do one or, sometimes, two sessions. A “booster” session may be recommended after an interval.

– £75 per session (approximately one and a half hours).

Analytical Therapy and Beliefs Work
(For most other problems.) This is a totally private and individual therapy.  Everybody is different, but as a guide beliefs work is most often done as a five or six session course, mostly at fortnightly intervals.  Analytical Therapy for deep seated issues usually needs more time – but you’re aiming to get profound and lasting change in about ten ’50 minute hour’ sessions held at weekly intervals.

– £70 per session.


GDPR is with us now. Do you have a privacy policy?
Yes, I take your privacy and our confidentiality very seriously and always have.  Please see my current Privacy Statement here.

What is hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a state of mind that is induced by focusing on ideas and suggestions. Hypnosis allows a therapist to work with your unconscious mind so that it can support your conscious aims.

Are there some people you cannot hypnotise?
No. Anyone who can follow simple instructions can be hypnotised.

Are drugs or tablets used?

What does hypnosis feel like?
That varies from person to person and even from session to session. Most people report feeling very relaxed and lethargic but focused. They are aware of everything that happens during the session.

What are the dangers of hypnosis?
Hypnosis is not dangerous. Hypnosis is a natural state of mind, rather like a daydream, which everybody experiences every day. As you go to sleep and as you wake up you experience a hypnotic state and you can see people in hypnosis in every day life, we say “they are in a world of their own”. Your mind creates the hypnotic state and accepts or rejects any suggestion made by the therapist – at all times your mind is in control. There are so many misconceptions about hypnosis that any specific worries you may have are best addressed at an introductory consultation.
