Expert Biography

I help grieving pet owners after the death of their pet, using a blend of hypnotherapy and grief counselling.

I first trained as a hypnotherapist in 2011.  I opened my first practice in Covent Garden, and then moved back to my native North East in 2013 to be closer to my parents, where I re-established my practice in Saltburn by the Sea.

Initially I was helping clients with all the usual things; stop smoking, weight loss, anxiety, drinking too much, sleeping problems etc.

During the initial consultation I always ask about the best and worst times in the clients life.  Repeatedly the worst times were about the death of a pet.  Quite often that would be the cause of the problem.  For instance, a client who said she was unable sleep revealed that when she was a child her dog had been 'put to sleep' and of course never woke up.

I decided to specialise in helping people with pet grief and did extra training.  I have even written for professional journals to help other therapists spot the signs.

I can share lots of case studies (client confidentiality maintained.)

Since the start of the pandemic I have moved from seeing clients face to face to doing my sessions by video call, which means I can help clients anywhere they can get a signal!

We are a nation of pet lovers - but pet death is an area which is constantly over looked.
