My Story.

I was lucky enough to have my own horses for 30 years and bred 3, so I know only too well the highs and lows of looking after horses, riding them and competing with them. 

My inspiration for this website was my work with Nervous Horse Riders. Having talked to and worked with many riders on the verge of giving up, I realised that something needed to be done to stop this happening and it needed to be done sooner rather than later!

Due to my success in this area, I was approached by the publishing company, David & Charles to co-author the highly acclaimed book "Ride with Confidence"  which was forwarded by Kelly marks.

I am a UK trained and qualified Hypnotherapist, Counsellor, Life Coach, Supervisor, and Psychotherapist. 

I specialise in Equestrian and Downhill Skiing Sports Psychotherapy; and Counselling, supporting and helping riders and skiers to help themselves. Although now semi-retired from face-to-face therapy, I continue to promote the use of Hypnotherapy for all.

I also produce a large range of non-equestrian Self-Hypnosis titles for Fears, Phobias,  Unwanted habits and addictions , Personal Development and Health and Well-Being and these can be found on my sister website
