Who I work with

Inspired to Change I work with people who are experiencing an emotional or physical issue which is holding them back or who are struggling to cope with life’s challenges and adapting to change. Often they have tried other approaches to move forward but ultimately they still feel unhappy or stuck. People just like you. 

Regardless of what brings people to see us they all have one thing in common:

  • They are motivated to get better, cope better or be better
  • They are ready to get their lives on track
  • They are inspired to change

And that is what I am passionate about and skilled at helping people to do!

In addition to the many different issues that the solution focused approach is effective at helping my personal passion is helping people with Stress and Anxiety, Confidence, Motivation, Pain Management and Phobias.


    I went to see Dawn with clear goals and whilst I wasn't entirely sure initially that hypnotherapy was the way to address them, I was open minded and prepared to give it a try as I really wanted it to make a difference. I was at times impatient for results but through Dawn's calm and reassuring approach, over time I could see that I was gradually building resilience and making progress. I then had something of an epiphany and suddenly felt light years from where I was at the start. Everything fell into place. Working with Dawn has been life-changing for me and I cannot recommend her highly enough ❤

    I went to Dawn originally because I was having anxiety whilst driving. She has helped me with so much more than that. I have learnt how the brain works and I now feel more confident as a person and have a positive outlook on life. The guided relaxations are amazing! and I am sleeping better than ever. I love Dawn's positive approach and would thoroughly recommend her to anyone with anxiety or confidence issues.

    Dawn has been helping me deal with anxiety the last few months through hypnotherapy. From when I had my first session to now she has helped me become far stronger mentally & given me the tools I need to help deal with anxiety. I would highly recommend Dawn to anybody who was struggling with Anxiety!

    Dawn has helped me beyond what I had hoped for. Right from the very first meeting Dawn put me at ease and made me feel comfortable. She took the time to explain the science behind how the mind works which I found interesting and helpful. Since having my sessions with Dawn I have become a much more confident person and pushed myself way further out of my comfort zone than I could of ever imagined. I would highly recommend Dawn

    Dawn has been fantastic, I came to her over the summer when I was hoping to make some changes and she really helped me to change my mindset so I could achieve the things I wanted to. During a stressful time I feel I've really turned a corner, and prioritised my own wellbeing. Thank you so much Dawn, I can genuinely say I am happier and healthier because of our sessions!

    I saw Dawn for some sessions to help with my anxiety. I can't believe what a change I feel in myself after only a few sessions. I now have the tools to recognise my negative behaviours and counteract them and my chronic health condition has improved massively from having more positive mental health on my side. I look forward to working with her again in the future! Would 100% recommend!

    Dawn has been just brilliant - I’ve referred to her a a brain wizard to anyone that will listen! I approached Dawn during lockdown as I was really struggling, and just a few short months on I feel like a different person. I’ve learnt so much about how the mind works and I now have so many tools to help me cope happily with life. As a bonus, the relaxation parts of the session are just lovely! The phobia work on top of this has also been mind-blowing. I’ve gone from almost crashing my car when seeing a spider to picking them up happily! I can’t thank you enough Dawn 😊 I highly recommend!

    I empower people to take back control and focus in their lives and transform their aspirations to set them up for success everyday and beyond!

    Are you feeling stuck, is something stopping you living your life? Whether that’s from stress, anxiety, confidence or your own limiting self beliefs or even a health condition, you don’t have to do this by yourself. For whatever reason you may be feeling stuck I can help you, for I have been there too, I understand.

    As somebody who has worked in a highly stressful corporate environment, driven by pressure and results to work harder and better, I have suffered the mental health impact associated with anxiety and stress. One of the things I learnt whilst studying as a clinical solution focused hypnotherapist and that also helped me to take back control was fundamentally understanding how my brain worked, which in turn enabled me to develop the understanding and tools needed to get back that connection with myself and my life.

    Now, with my own personal experience and my neuroscience training I can assist you in understanding your own brain, to help you develop your own tools. It is my passion to empower you to unlock the power of your mind so you can regain the ability to move forward in your life, take back that control and focus that you need to thrive, transforming your aspirations and setting you up for success everyday and beyond!
