People often ask me how I came to be a hypnotherpist and I suppose the answer is simple – I used the techniques I now teach my clients to recover from cancer myself.
In 1991 I was diagnosed with high grade, Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma (a highly aggressive type of cancer) and subsequently had major surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant. I set my mind to be the fastest patient into and out of the isolation unit – and I did it
I can’t clam to have found the cure for cancer, however I can empathise with my clients who are facing similar, challenging circumstances and help embed techniques that can enable them to survive the treatment and enjoy the best quality of life.
You can see some of the articles about my recovery in the gallery below.
I have been practising as a hypnotherapist since 1999 after training with the Proudfoot School of Hypnosis, under the tutelage of the amazing Wilf Proudfoot who had worked with some of the great hypnotherapists and pioneers in mind-changing techniques such as Virginia Satir in America. In the 1980’s. Wilf had combined the best of the best in terms of transformational change techniques and his mission was to enable others to help people by passing his knowledge on.
I've since worked as a Senior Manager and Human Resources professional with over 30 years working in local and global companies in the public, private and third sector, along with 25 years with Dove House Hospice as a volunteer.
…and finally, just in case you’re wondering, you won’t be dancing round like a chicken… unless you really want to!
Amazing lady changed my life!
Fran worked miracles on me, 32 years old and I was addicted to sucking my thumb for hours on end - how embarrassing! As if hypnotherapy could cure that!!! I had tried EVERYTHING possible as had my family from a very young age, this was becoming awkward, antisocial and a problem plus it cost thousands in orthodontic treatment. As if this would work - How wrong was I...
One session and never again. I don't know how she did it but it was amazing - a kind, compassionate , honest and genuine caring lady whom changed my embarrassing habit over night. Recommend her to anyone and particularly all those whom like me didn't believe in "alternative therapy" - an amazing miracle worker! Ring her now!!
