Complimentary Therapies Offered in Newport

Due to expanding our therapy services we can now offer Clinical Hypnotherapy and BWRT® Levels 1-3 in Newport. Level 3 Psychophysiology is a therapy helping with the psychological aspects and underpinnings of many physiological conditions such as Irritable Bowel System (IBS) and Pain Management. To find out more about BWRT® please see further down the page or visit our BWRT page.

Clinical Hypnotherapy is offered in Newport as well as Monmouth and is a complementary healthcare therapy that can help and support you in finding a solution or to cope more effectively with many issues, such as:

  • Anxiety/stress/panic attack
  • Depression
  • Weight loss/body image
  • Quit smoking
  • Fear of flying
  • Alcohol/drug/food dependency
  • Sleep issues
  • Obsessional Compulsive Disorders/Behaviours

Sometimes we can find that we have to be ‘sick and tired of being sick and tired’ (Albert Einstein) of those old habits, self-sabotaging patterns of behaviour and limiting beliefs before we take that step to make a change. If you are ready to start making changes then there is no time like the present to start the process.

By using different approaches I can tailor sessions for you so that you can gain insights into your core issue/s, which can then support you in finding ways to cope more effectively with many issues and helping you to manage situations in a more productive and effective way.

Personality profiling as part of the weight management programme offered in Newport can, as a broader base, offer clients an opportunity to consider strengths and weaknesses and help to develop a better balance in life, as well as supporting the tailoring of therapy for specific needs. This offers another opportunity to make those changes you want to make and in understanding more about characteristics can help you to recognise your skills and abilities, as well as offering you the chance to hone new ones.


If, however, you would prefer a non-hypnosis therapy then at the Newport Clinic I can offer BWRT® Levels 1, 2 and 3 and BWRT® Master Coaching/Weight Management all of which offers models of psychology and psychotherapy created by UK professional therapist, Terence Watts, MCGI.

Unlike many other modern therapies, BWRT® Level 1 allows a ‘core of privacy’ so that you do not have to divulge anything you would rather not talk about – in fact, the practitioner only needs to know how you feel and how you would prefer to feel instead. BWRT® is a completely new and different therapy based on the latest discoveries about the way the brain works and how it affects our moods, behaviour and emotions.

Only Certified Practitioners have been trained to deliver BWRT® and all have to adhere to a strict ethical code. Find out more at

BWRT® can often resolve difficulties in just a single session, where many therapies can take a lot longer. So whether you have a problem with stress, anxiety, fears, managing your weight, or something else entirely, arrange a consultation to see how I can help you.

About Me

Before becoming a Healthcare Professional and qualifying as a Clinical Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist and Advanced BWRT® Practitioner and BWRT® Master Life Coach and Weight Management Coach my background was as an Educationalist, holding lecturing and management positions in further and higher education.

With a Master’s Degree in Education and Training I mentored and trained staff and students and learned a great deal about the complexity of people and their needs. Many people, I found, struggled with various levels of anxiety, panic, stress, and self-confidence, both on a personal and professional level.

Care and Commitment

I find it motivating to be a part of a solution that can help people make constructive changes because we all, in this complex world, at some time or another, have stressors in our lives or behaviours we would like to change. Some examples of these could include concerns or issues around work stress, social anxiety, public speaking, relationship stressors, self-confidence, fears, phobias, addictions or smoking, weight management, wanting to achieve a healthier lifestyle, to stop binge-eating or drinking too much etc.

Everyone is different and that is why the differing therapies I provide enable me to tailor therapy to your specific needs, because you are unique. All therapy is shaped to achieve, as quickly and effectively as possible, the goals and intent of the client and what they want to achieve. Therapy is about offering you, the client, the opportunity to empower yourself by getting control of who or how you want to be – to support you in recognising your own value and worth.

Objectives of Initial Consultation and Therapy Sessions

Having that initial consultation to discuss what you want and to evaluate how best to support you is a fundamental first step.

Thereafter, sessions are working towards developing the most effective and efficient way forward for you: as you are unique with your own needs, challenges, aims and goals, the sessions can vary in time-scale, depending on the specific issues you wish to address.

Sessions are blended to fit your personality, preference, and requirements. Therapy is reviewed, evaluated and realigned on an on-going basis to continually meet your presenting or changing needs. As such therapy can take one session or in certain cases and for certain issues may take 9-12 sessions, which when you think about that is 9-12 hours of one day of your life but in one-hour blocks over 9-12 weeks instead. The time-scale depends on you because therapy is about empowering you to empower yourself.

Investing in your future and taking that first step to finding out if this is the right therapy for you: Email, text or telephone to make your initial consultation and take this opportunity to learn more about Clinical Hypnotherapy and/or Psychotherapy and how it could help you.

By focusing on what you do want rather than what you don’t want can make a fundamental difference to you and the way you want to think, interact and behave, whether socially, in work, or with family and friends: as Einstein said ‘We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking that created them’. Sports Professionals can recognise that mindset is the difference between winning and losing.

Taking the first step can be the most difficult, however, there is no better time than the present to choose to start making the changes you want to make. An investment in yourself today could be one of the most important and rewarding steps you take to change your tomorrows.

If you are still wondering whether Clinical Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy or BrainWorking Recursive Therapy (BWRT®) is the right path for you then please telephone or text me on 07585 552462 or email me at to make an initial consultation.


I have had the privilege of helping many people to achieve their goals and aspirations and make the changes to their lives that they wanted to make and who, like me, just needed that extra bit of help. We can all acknowledge the fact that it takes courage to ask for help, but I found it very worthwhile personally and have seen the changes in people professionally as well.
