I qualified as a GP in 1989 and became interested in NLP when I saw that it offered tools for stress and time management, something important to a busy GP and mother of two children.

I started training in NLP in 2004 with Dr Richard Bandler - co creator of NLP, John la Valle - president of the Society of NLP, and Paul McKenna - renowned hypnotist and author.

I went on to become an NLP master practitioner and trainer. I also trained in life coaching, thought field therapy and hypnotherapy. I've also attended courses in NLP modeling and metaphors with John Grinder.

In addition to a thriving private practice, I also run seminars for surgeries, students, registrars and doctors, helping them to recognise their strengths and maximise potential.

As a GP I have always been keen to promote patient education and believe in preventative medicine.

Virgin Flying Without Fear - Program

I have assisted and presented on a number of Virgin Flying Without Fear courses and have been working with Virgin Flying Without Fear since may 2010, helping over 400 people to overcome their phobia of flying.

My approach to health is holistic and I recognise the importance of the unconscious mind for physical and mental wellbeing.
